Your home is filled with a lot of different rooms and spaces. Each is unique and precious. But nothing quite compared to the bathroom. For most of us, it’s the space where we truly begin and end our days. It’s where we wake up and where we unwind. Even on the days when we barely glance in the mirror, we dash into the bathroom to brush our teeth and maybe throw on some extra deodorant.
As such, you want to make it a sanctuary — a space that encourages comfort, promotes wellbeing, and soothes your soul.
While a large portion of creating such a space is rooted in the foundations of your bathroom — good lighting, a spacious shower, plenty of storage — you can also use accessories to tie the entire room together. Because while function is necessary, beauty makes it downright enjoyable.
The following are the best places to find bathroom accessories that will help you dress up your bathroom with a touch of elegance.
When you want affordable style, Target’s a dream come true. Its homeware collection offers inspirational pieces in a variety of colors, patterns, and styles. It’s one of the simplest ways to give your bathroom a put-together-look without breaking the bank. And, if you wanted to coordinate beyond the bathroom, you can find similarly styled accessories for the whole house! Talk about one-stop shopping!
Snowe is known for its fluffy towels and cozy robes. But their bath accessories should not be overlooked. The aesthetic is minimal, meaning you can add a touch of dress-up without overwhelming the space. And, it’s all incredibly well-made. Plus, colors tend to stick to neutrals (white, beige, grey, and charcoal), make it easy to mix-and-match with any décor.
Want to create a timeless look? Pottery Barn specializes in traditional wares with just a hint of modern flair. Their countertop bathroom collections feature coordinating pieces such as toothbrush holders, tissue boxes, and soap dispensers. You can also typically get matching small dishes great for jewelry or small knickknacks, wastebaskets, and small trays.
This is another online retailer that offers affordable yet absolutely luxurious linens. While it started with sheets, they’re expansion into bath towels, kitchen towels, and bathrobes are something worth noting. So too are the absolutely dreamy slippers! But for the case of décor, we’re smitten with the simplistic shower curtains in simple, yet pleasing patterns and textures.
It’s hard to go wrong with the (unofficial) wedding registry-capital of the world. Macy’s home goods collections have been a reliable source for designers and home shoppers for decades. Each season you’ll find a new selection. And while that means you can’t come back and replace your favorite soap dish, it does mean you’ll find something new and exciting to replace it.
Originally, Ikea was almost utilitarian in their functionality, offering barebones options that got the job done at affordable prices. But in recent years they’ve started expanding their selection — albeit still with an eye for the simplistic — to provide more style choices at similarly affordable prices. Which means if you’re looking to make a change at a rock-bottom price, IKEA’s your best bet.
Another affordable option, Bed, Bath & Beyond carries a wide range of bathroom accessories ranging from modern to traditional. While you probably won’t find anything ultra “unique” at this big box store, you’ll certainly find something that’s beautiful and new.
Another fantastic online retailer, Hudson & Vine offers everything from bathroom accessories and home décor to tableware and storage essentials. We particularly like how their bath collections come in a variety of colors, making it easy to find one that compliments your current color scheme.
When it comes to options, Wayfair seems to have cornered the market. (Sometimes there are so many choices it can actually feel overwhelming!) One of our favorite features of the Wayfair site is their “Room Ideas” feature, which allows you to browse their site based on individual rooms, themes, trends, color schemes, and more. This makes is a great way to easily sort through all the different items and narrow down your choices.
