Bathroom accessories are more than just a practical necessity and can make a real style impact if used correctly. Why spend thousands of pounds upgrading a bathroom, particularly one in a traditional style, and then spoil the effect with plastic accessories and cheap looking additions.
If you haven’t splashed out on a new bathroom, you’d be amazed how a deep clean and some attractive accessories can spruce up a tired looking suite. Old Fashioned Bathrooms have some of the best ranges of old style accessories available – from companies like Elite, Burlington, Edwards & Company and Sbordoni Italian Accessories. Here are some of our top recommendations for accessories to spruce up your bathroom before Christmas.
Good lights can brighten up any bathroom so don’t settle for a light bulb in the middle of the room when you can have ornate wall hung lights that are attractive focal points. We have some classy looking pieces, many of which echo an art deco style. They are all British Standard approved and have easy fixings perfect for most wall types. See our selection here – www.oldfashionedbathrooms.co.uk/products/lights/
Bathroom mirrors can also brighten up a room and make a strong style statement – we have oval, square and arched wall mirrors as well as some extending and magnifying versions here. There’s also a magnificent hand-made Gothic mirror as part of the Foresters range of wooden bathrooms items, made in Suffolk. Warning… its grandeur and scale is not suitable for all bathrooms!
Towel Warmers, Rails and Hooks
It is difficult to get too excited by towel or robe hooks although there is particularly elegant version in the Elite range which is available in Chrome, Antique Gold and Polished Nickel – www.oldfashionedbathrooms.co.uk/products/elite-accessories
If you have a generous budget and are after a real talking point then the Sbordoni Flora Freestanding Towel Rail might be of interest and also the wall mounted single towel rail holder – See Sbordoni accessories here

Often overlooked, shower accessories can add a chic touch to a bathroom, particularly valve handles, shower cradles, slide rails and of course soap dishes. Typically soap dishes should be a ‘basket’ style allowing water to drain through them and therefore being hygienic as it prevents any build up residue that soap or bottles may leave.
