Finishing touches: How to accessorise your bathroom with style

These days our bathrooms are a lot more than just the smallest room in our home. Designers are increasingly using clever storage solutions and chic accessories to really make the most of the space

First impressions

When considering bathroom storage, think of the overall look you are trying to create. Glass cabinets will throw light around a smaller area and are widely available in single, double and triple door styles. Wooden furniture will suit any setting and is sturdy and long lasting. When considering wooden cabinets, remember to shop around for ones that are pre-assembled. The quality is likely to be much higher and they are virtually hassle-free to install. You will find solid oak cabinets in both traditional and contemporary styles, so it should not be hard to get something that fits in perfectly with your scheme.

You will find plenty of space-saving designs on the market ideal for smaller rooms or en-suites and do not rule out a corner cabinet. You may be surprised at how much clutter they can accommodate. If you have opted for wooden furniture, choose a mirror framed in the same wood. Many mirrors can be hung either portrait or landscape so you can experiment with the best look for your layout.

Double up

Modern bathroom design incorporates practical storage with eye-catching flair. Wash basin cabinets are an increasingly popular way to achieve this. For a contemporary feel, pair a stone basin with an oak cupboard. If you are going for an ultra-modern look, consider a glass and metal combination or the cool glamour of sleek white or black marble. There are lots of duel-purpose bathroom accessories available at the moment. You could consider fitting a storage shelf with integral towel rail to save on space.

And finally, a combination of clever design and elegant accessories really will pull a room together. You can have a bathroom that is both practical and stylish.
