It may seem like once the bathroom is built there is not a lot you can do with it in terms of decor but that’s really not the case – even a new bathroom mirror can make a difference in the look and feel of the room and there are plenty of bath and shower decor ideas that are easy, fast and fabulous.
The trend today is to create a spa-like environment in the bathroom and the simple addition of a teak shower or bath bench can make a big difference. A bench makes it easier to shave legs, shampoo hair while seated, soak your feet or just sit and relax in the shower. Teak benches are ideally suited for use in a bath or shower because teak is naturally water resistant; a teak bath or shower mat is another fashionable and very functional idea.
Another spa-like amenity is a towel warmer – you may have experienced them in a fine hotel or resort but now they are available for home use too. There are counter-top towel warmers along with freestanding floor units and wall mounted heated towel racks so there is bound to be one that is right for you. Typically the installation is minimal and can be done without calling in a tradesman.
A handheld shower head is another nice amenity – it makes it easy to shampoo hair, bathe children, wash pets, water plants or focus the water spray precisely where you want it. Hand held shower heads are also useful for cleaning the tub or shower enclosure. They require only ordinary household tools to install so there’s no need to call a plumber to enjoy this most practical of spa-like amenities.
