Let’s face it: we spend a lot of time in the bathroom, next to the kitchen, so there’s a good chance you want to keep your bathroom looking as modern as possible. While it can cost a decent amount to do an entire remodel, sometimes that’s not what you need. Sometimes, all that you need in your bathroom are some modern bathroom accessories to spruce up the experience. Our team at Re-Bath & Kitchens gets that, so we’re always willing to help out if there’s a bathroom accessory that you’ll need to install. Keep on reading to see some of the newest bathroom accessories that you’ll want in your bathroom!

 

LED Lighting

This is probably the easiest accessory to make completely revolutionize your bathroom experience. Plus, they’re powered by a low voltage source, making them economical and safe for bathroom use. In its most basic form, you can just get some strip lighting to lend a funky atmosphere to your bathroom. Looking for something a step up? Consider getting single lights, or alternating lights. You can even get them in different colors.

 

Body Drying System

Okay, this one may seem way out, but it’s starting to gain traction after a crowdfunding campaign a while back. Eliminating the use of towels makes your shower all the more convenient and luxurious, after all!

 

Storage Jars and Boxes

What do you do with all of those tiny knicks and knacks that you never know where to put? Get a stylish, chic storage jar! Finally, you’ll have somewhere to drop off your hair clips, makeup remover pads, cotton balls, and other accessories. And the best part? The storage jar can go anywhere! Maybe you want something less chic? Try an urban, natural wood box! It’s for making a statement and adding some life to your bathroom.

 

Heated Baths and Toilets

Hey, it’s 2017. Why should you have a cold bath? Now, it’s a piece of cake getting a bath with a built-in system to keep your bath running at the same temperature constantly, so you don’t have to freeze when topping up your bath. You can also get a heated toilet seat to help maximize your comfort when you’re going through your regular bathroom routine. Running on low-voltage sources, they’re safe and perfect for bathroom and toilet usage.

 

Eco-Friendly Shower Heads

If you’re going to be modern, you might as well be eco-friendly while you’re at it, right? Showers account for an enormous amount of most people’s regular water usage, which is why it would make sense to have an economically-friendly shower head as one of your essential bathroom accessories. Besides cutting down on unnecessary waste, it’ll also help you save money when it comes to paying your water and energy bills. While there are many different options available that all regulate and attempt to limit water and energy usage in a variety of ways, the Re-Bath team is more than happy to provide some advice to help you make the best decision for your bathroom and household.

Bath Caddies

Nothing is better than having a long, luxurious bath after a rough day–especially if you have a bath caddy to complement the bathing experience! A good bath caddy has various sections and parts to place your different items on and relax: soaps, shampoos, sponges, and so forth. Now, you can get a bath caddies with tablet or phone holders, a dedicated compartment for a bottle and glass of wine, or even a book holder so you don’t get your mystery novel wet.

 

Towel Warmers

After taking a relaxing, warm shower or bath, the worst thing can be stepping out and grabbing a cold towel to dry off. Fortunately, towel warmers are the bathroom accessory to help make the transition easier! There are, however, other options available: heated cabinets, for example, or a towel drier that could work as a radiator as well.

 

Rugs, Shower Curtains, and Other Accessories

Of course, not every accessory has to be electronic: sometimes a new throw rug or classy shower curtain can do the job. Consider getting soap bars or empty, vintage powder jars for aesthetic purpose. Framed art is easy to change on a rotating basis, and can provide whatever sort of vibe you want with almost no effort. Another popular option is a ladder floor storage, where you can put baskets to store items in.

Ultimately, you have to choose what’s on the market that you most want in your bathroom. However, we realize at ReBath & Kitchens that it can be a little overwhelming to pick the perfect bathroom accessories for your bathroom, so if you’re ever in need of some assistance or advice, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us! We’d love to hear from you.

Our Favorite Bathroom Trends for 2017!

Spring cleaning has come and gone, and now it’s getting to longer, lazier summer days full of fun with family and friends. Of course, those lazy summer days might lead to you considering making some renovation changes around your house to keep your mind occupied during the summer months–and that’s where Re-Bath & Kitchens can step in, providing high-quality, fantastic bathroom and kitchen remodels that will make you go “Wow!” Even better, our team has come up with some of our favorite bathroom trends for the year, so read on to see what’s currently in!

The Dramatic Bathroom Redo

Are you the kind of person who thinks bold, dramatic bursts of color add a shot of life to your bathroom? If you’re tired of associating your bathroom with white and silver, this might be the trend of the year that’s just for you! To best accomplish this look, it’s wise to start off with a mood board to focus and streamline your thoughts. (Our bathroom designer will walk you through all this and more during your first appointment!) Colors and shades that are in this year are decadent and rich: deep-sea blues, silky grays. We recommend one, maybe two bold hues, so your bathroom doesn’t get overwhelmed. After all, less is more! For example, you could paint one wall with that color, or choose a cabinet or vanity to paint in a shade of your choice. Now it’s possible to get tiles in a plethora of different options: all shapes, sizes, and finishes are available, so get creative!

Consider adding some metal to your bathroom, as these are finally back in the bathroom. Think mirror frames or towel rails, available in all kinds of metal: brass, rose gold, or even copper. If you’re feeling less permanent or unsure just how far you want to go, accessories are the way to go. Get a loud floral print for your towels, a busy shower curtain, or a wide variety of lotions, perfumes, or whatever else you think would go best in your bathroom! These can shake up the bathroom’s aesthetic dramatically without any lasting consequence, so give it a go.

 

The Neutral Bathroom Redo

Neutral decors are definitely in right now: subtle creamy colors, complemented with classic whites and oaky browns lend a modern look to any bathroom. Maybe it’s because of the perfect blend of natural and organic, but you can’t go wrong using a neutral-inspired design for your bathroom remodel.

Aged flooring and weathered tiles lend to that natural, relaxed aura you’re trying to create, complemented with a few browns and blue since those are colors that show up the most the most in nature. Speaking of nature, there’s a good chance a summer trend will include trying to bring the outdoors inside! We could be seeing flowers or plants or even grass inside soon! In the meantime, try using more natural items to keep the neutral vibe going: think granite, wood, slate or brick.

You want to keep the bathroom space light and bright: stick to one hue for the bathroom tiles, ideally something beige or gray. Choose a complementary hue for the wall tiles. Once you have this done, you need to make sure the bathroom is well lit: otherwise, the color palettes will go to waste. Large windows can reflect as much natural light as possible, and consider full spectrum or daylight bulbs.

 

The Heritage Bathroom Redo

Thanks to Downton Abbey, this has had a huge revival! Victorian- and Edwardian-reproduction fixtures are trending, giving you plenty room for choice. You need to blend the period pieces with modern conveniences (toilets with eco-flushes, for example). After all, you don’t want to go all the way back to the 1800s! Consider getting original pieces from auctions or restoration specialists, since fully restored pieces will cost a pretty penny.

Then, get replica tiles and paint colors (greens and blues are currently in). Metro tiles can do the job here, or maybe black-and-white square tiles for a nice, artsy vibe. Again, make sure it’s not too overwhelming for maximum effect. Make sure to set the tub (preferably a roll-top or freestanding bath) in the center to make everyone look twice and complete the rustic look. With the right vintage bathroom decor and guidance, you’ll strike the perfect balance between modern and timeless.
