Updating a bathroom has never been easier – the modern shower and bath kits make it simple to outfit a bathroom like a pro. When you select items from a bath collection you can shop with the confidence of knowing that everything will coordinate perfectly while not matching precisely; most bath collections have been carefully edited by trained designers so you don’t need to hire a pro. The bathroom is perhaps the most heavily trafficked room in any home so it needs to be able to stand up to a lot of wear and tear; items should be chosen with safety and functionality in mind.

When shopping for new bath mats or rugs, be sure to look for ones with anti-skid backing to reduce the potential for slips and falls. Shower curtains and liners should be replaced on a regular basis to reduce the possibility of mold and mildew. Look for ones which feature quick-dry and mildew resistant properties. When replacing the shower curtain and liner it is a good idea to upgrade to top quality shower curtain hooks or rings which will slide easily on the rod; this will reduce the need to pull or tug on the shower curtain and will help to extend the life of the shower curtain and liner.
There are many different types of rods for holding up a shower curtain; wall-mounted rods are preferable but sometimes you have little choice but to use a tension rod. To add extra elbow room in the bath or shower you may wish to consider the installation of a set of curved shower curtain and liner rods. If your rod is starting to corrode there are plastic sleeves which can camouflage the problem.
