If you’re not sure where to start when looking at bathroom sets here is our easy buying guide for choosing accessories which will look great in your bathroom.
1. Consider What You Need
As bathroom sets come in all different combinations of items from just a few items to everything you could possibly want to use in your bathroom, think about what you need before you begin looking. What is essential for you and what would you be paying for in a set that you really don’t need or want?
Consider which of the following items would be essential, useful or nice to have
- soap dish
- toothbrush mug or holder
- lotion bottle
- storage pots or jars
- tissue box cover
- toilet roll holder
- shower curtain
- bath mat
2. Think about Color and Materials
If you have not yet chosen a color scheme for your bathroom you will have more choice. However if you already have your paint and tile colors in mind you can just look at the options which will suit your bathroom decor. One thing to remember is to consider whether your bathroom falls in the warm color range (think creams, terracotta, wood, gold and other natural colors) or whether you are looking at cool clear shades (think white, grey, black and chrome). The former would look good with wooden or cream accessories while the latter would be better with white, clear glass or stainless steel.
3. Set a Budget
Consider how much you have to spend on your bathroom set so that you don’t go looking at sets which are way over budget. But do be open to something which is truly spectacular. It is pointless spending thousands remodeling your bathroom and then losing the opportunity to enhance it with something great. You also don’t want to go too cheap and make your bathroom look awful with ugly white or colored plastic bath accessory set.
4. Go Browsing
Take a look at the many options available online to get ideas. Chances are you will come across something you love and if it meets your requirements for price, color and make up of items then you may just want to order it otherwise create a short list of your favorites.
5. Evaluate Your Short List
Match your favorite bath sets against the following criteria
- Is the bathroom set within budget?
- Does it include all the items you want?
- Will you use all the items that are included?
- Can you buy items individually?
- Are the colors in keeping with your bathroom color scheme or the kind of look you might like for your bathroom if you have not decided on one yet?
- Does the price include shipping charges?
- How quickly can you have the bathroom accessory set delivered?
6. Choose and Make your Order
Make your final choice from the bathroom sets on your short list, make your order and then all you have to do is wait for your bathroom accessories to arrive and make your bathroom great!
If you are planning a new bathroom color scheme it is useful to think about where bathroom sets fit into the picture because you truly can get them in every color but sometimes it’s worth starting with a set of accessories and building your bathroom color scheme around that.
You’d think it would be easier to start with the big areas such as tiles or flooring (once you have chosen your main bathroom fittings) but that’s not always the case when you want something special. The thing is the tendency is to go for neutral colors in these areas which don’t add much to your (inevitably) white sink, bath tub and toilet and then you have lost an opportunity to make a great scheme.
Think above all about the effect you want to create with your bathroom before you choose your colors.
All white accessories have a classic go-with-everything feel but you have to be careful that they are not just a little too boring especially if you have an all white bathroom. Could being a little more daring with your soap dish and toothbrush mug give your bathroom a much needed boost?Similarly a chrome bathroom set goes well with chrome shower fittings and faucets or taps but if you want something a bit more colorful, how about these ideas?
- a blue mosaic bathroom set incorporating turquoise, royal and navy shades goes well with many bathrooms and you can use the blue colors to match up towels and other accessories without being too limited with your choice.
- a wooden bathroom set goes great with either cream or white and can help give your bathroom a colonial feel especially if you complete it with wooden shutters or blinds and some large green plants.
- a bright lime green bathroom set can look good in a fun bathroom. Think shower curtains decorated with cartoon frogs.
- a set of red accessories would look good in a pure white bathroom and a red bathroom set could be teamed with other colors such as navy blue for a nautical look or with green (think summer poppies in a vase).
- a black bathroom set can be effective for a monochromatic look which can be very sophisticated. It is also reminiscent of the art-deco era. Think black and white tiles on the floor and thirties shaped bathroom fittings.
Apart from these color ideas there are also many bathroom accessory sets available locally and online with decorative and fun motifs. Have fun exploring what is out there from dolphins to cartoon characters (great for kids’ bathrooms). Simply choose from the huge range of bathroom sets out there and you can add a new lease of life to your bathroom, matching your tiles and flooring to your new theme.
If you would like a bathroom that makes a bold statement, then choose red bathroom accessories when buying the items to complete your room. Most of us have largely plain white bathroom, but by using red as an accent color, we get well away from bland and boring. Our room automatically looks brighter and more cheerful.
One of the easiest ways to achieve a great looking room is by choosing one of the gorgeous red bathroom sets around. These coordinated accessory sets give your bathroom a pulled together look and some include matching towel sets, shower curtains and red bath rugs to make the task even easier. These bath accessories sets are made in all kinds of materials to suit your needs including plastic, resin and porcelain and while some red bath sets are traditional in style, others would work well in an ultra contemporary space. If you are decorating a bathroom for children, you will find some fun designs with ladybirds or Spiderman too, but in most cases, red bathroom accesories are for adults.
If you are just buying a few pieces in red, you could easily make you own set with towels using the same color if you take one of your items with you to a large department store linen department, you will generally find towels in all colors of the rainbow and should find a match for your piece. A set of alternating red and white towels on display in the exact shade of your red bathroom accessory would make an attractive yet practical display in the room.
To complete your red bathroom decor, hang a blind at the window in a plain white or red color and add a couple of red-framed pictures to the walls or metallic frames, matching the bathroom faucets, containing pictures of red items (such as poppies or roses).
