Your bathroom should be your everyday sanctuary, where you can indulge in self-care and me-time and feel truly pampered. Why scrimp on items for your bathroom, when you’ve invested in quality classic furniture for the rest of your home?
For an at-home spa experience, make sure you pay attention to all the small details. Splurge on the best set of fluffy bath towels you can. Hang matching bathrobes on hooks. Then have some key bathroom accessories that not only keep things clean and hygienic, but look like beautiful home décor items, too. Think a soap dispenser, a vanity tray for holding toiletries and cosmetics, and a soap dish for your bar of soap.
The humble bar of soap is having a comeback. Why? As it comes in paper packaging, it’s kinder to the environment than buying liquid soap in plastic bottles. Apparently, liquid soaps and their packaging take five times more energy to produce. What’s more, a bar of soap can last a long time, saving money. So, to reduce your carbon footprint, choose the age-old bar of soap for your bathroom. To make it last longer, you’ll need a soap holder.
A soap dish is a practical item, for sure. But it can also be beautiful. You could go for a soap dish made from a natural material, such as glass or marble. Glass is great for evoking old-world Hollywood glamour. Pair with towels, dispensers, tissues boxes, and tumblers in all-white to unify the look. Prefer more drama? A gun-metal-hued stone and stainless-steel dish is an easy way to bring in a darker colour palette. Add other bathroom items in a shade of grey for a sophisticated, dramatic ambience.
