bathroom essentials 2016Our bathrooms are deserving of more attention than we normally give to them. With the right combination of design and stylish accessories like the ones at Best Spy, the bathroom can be a place to relax. It can also be highly efficient and practical at the same time.

Here are some must have items for your bathroom in 2016 that will make your life easier, safer and more comfortable.

Opening Up a Tiny Bathroom

Tiny bathrooms are common today in many apartments and in some homes, which leaves the question of where to store necessary bathroom items.

Instead of a classic sink, try installing a pedestal sink, which will give the illusion of extra space. Stand-alone shelves can be placed anywhere a little extra storage is needed, even in the corner of a wall. Use the back of the bathroom door to hang multiple towel racks or a shallow shelving unit. Try a covered straw basket to store extra items on the top of the toilet tank, or place them on top of a small bathroom table.

Add more lighting to your small bathroom. Extra lighting in a tiny bathroom gives the illusion of additional space, and makes the area seem brighter and more cheerful.

Fragrance in the Bathroom

One way to make the ordinary bathroom seem more elegant is to include fragrance. There are so many ways to do this today. In addition to an endless variety of liquid hand soaps, you can incorporate bathroom candles, essential oils and old-fashioned hanging pomanders to give your bathroom an appealing fragrance throughout. Colorful bathroom salts stored in locking Mason jars are a pretty addition to any bathroom, even if you don’t like taking baths.

Better Safety in the Bathroom

Consumers today are more concerned about including safety features in the bathroom, especially because of the dangers of slipping while taking a shower or bath. Bath mats and safety handles are a good idea not only for seniors but for other ages in the bathroom. A colorful nappy rug placed just outside the bathtub or shower collects drips and eliminates the problem of wet feet on bathroom tile, another cause of bathroom falls.

Take a little time to think about ways to improve the look and feel of your bathroom. A little bit of effort can do a lot to make this small part of the home a more inviting place to be.
