If you’re renovating your bathroom, living in the United States is ideal because you’ll be spoiled for choice. One only has to google “shower accessories” and you’ll find a million options to toss into your virtual shopping cart. Still, you can’t just slip any old thing you find on eBay into your bathroom. Shower accessories need to be made in a certain way to withstand the effects of humidity as well as the test of time. On top of that, you want them to look fabulous too, right?
To help you get it right, we’ve created a list of stylish essential shower accessories that’ll go the distance.
Are you still cluttering the floor of your shower with all your lotions and potions? Worse yet, are you using one of those horrible-looking wire baskets from IKEA? You know the type. The kind that attaches to the shower wall with mould-magnet suction cups. The kind where it’s only a matter of time before it crashes to the ground, reducing your favorite Aesop shampoo to a pile of smashed glass and goop!
Nobody deserves that. Now is the time to elevate your shower experience from college dorm to “happy place” and this starts with investing in a wall-mounted shower rack. The kind you want to buy is going to be made of a super-strong, rust resistant metal like Grade 304 Stainless Steel, the kind you’ll find at Bathroom Butler. It’s got the edge over chrome because it’s so naturally resistant to corrosion it doesn’t require a coating that can chip or scratch.
If you’re living life in the fast lane, chances are you shave your legs in the shower. Still, much like everything else in your life, this can be a real balancing act. If you’re sick of doing the flamingo – a potentially risky business if your shower doors are made of glass – it’s time to get a shower foot rest. This is the kind of thing you might encounter in a 5-star hotel and, once you’ve experienced this taste of “little luxe”, it’s something you won’t want to let go of.
If you buy one of our shower foot rests, available in Polished or Brushed Stainless Steel and Matte Black, you’ll get to benefit from our patented RIGID Loc mounting system. It ensures your foot rest stays firmly fixed in the wall with no wobbles.
Let’s talk towels
A top quality towel rail versus a chip-prone chrome number you found on Amazon will always give your bathroom more allure. At Bathroom Butler, ours are made using that brilliant stainless steel we mentioned. Also, like all our products, they boast a ten year guarantee!
Now let’s chat about sizing. Our towel rails are available in several lengths to suit any space. If you’re wanting to add one to a family bathroom, think about getting a 32 inch double rail rack as it can hold up to four towels – two on each rail. Another good option for a family home is our towel shelf with a hang bar. It can store several towels on its shelf as well as two folded towels on the rail beneath it.
By hook or by crook
Last but not least, what are you going to do with your robe when you take it off? Hanging it over a door isn’t great. Draping it over the side of the bath is worse. Actually wait – having to hang it off yet another plastic suction cup hook a la IKEA would be rock bottom. Let’s not do that.
If you’ve taken the time to invest in quality shower accessories, go all the way and finish strong with a Bathroom Butler robe hook. We have three for you to choose from in styles that range from classic to mod. A little detail, but one that makes all the difference between just living… and living luxe!
