What accessories should you have in a bathroom?

What accessories should you have in a bathroom?

What you use to style your bathroom will depend on different factors like aesthetics, budget and need. Although our recent survey suggests you can’t go wrong with the basics, including toilet roll holders, shower baskets and soap dishes being the most commonly purchased items among our survey respondents. With many people using hair tools on a daily basis, it’s no wonder more respondents picked up a hairdryer holder over robe hooks and towel ladders.

Here’s a list of the most commonly purchased items among those surveyed:

  • Soapdish: 28%
  • Toilet roll holder: 27%
  • Shower basket: 21%
  • Towel rail: 19%
  • Hand towel holder: 18%
  • Towel rack: 17%
  • Shelving: 16%
  • Hairdryer or hair styler holder: 15%
  • Bathroom tumbler: 12%
  • Robe hook: 11%
  • Grab rail: 8%
  • Towel ladder: 6%

Ultimately, your overall spending will depend on your bathroom style, including the types of finishes and materials you want to incorporate, the size of the fixtures you need (i.e. sinks, bath tubs etc.) and of course, your budget. Aussies who took part in our survey spent an average of $153 on new bathroom accessories, with the majority wanting to update the style of their bathroom(s) or renovate the space (29%). However, you can save big bucks by shopping around, keeping an eye out for sneaky discounts during sale periods and asking retailers to price match when possible.
