3 Luxury Bathroom Accessories You Should Get and 3 to Avoid

What are 3 luxury bathroom accessories you should get?

freestanding towel warming rack

Freestanding towel warming racks are a popular bathroom accessory.

Towel Warmers

Towel warmers provide the luxurious warmth of warm towels on demand while keeping the bathroom at a temperature you can be comfortable in no matter what you are or are not wearing.

Towel warmers also allow you to dry wet socks and clothes while you bathe. Dry your pantyhose and unmentionables on the towel warmer right after washing them in the sink.

You can get them as a freestanding rack, a rack that mounts on the wall, or in several other sizes of enclosed towel warming containers.

This may seem like a wasted expense to many people, but once you have one you’ll never want to go back to not having one.

Upgrading your shower head can yield the dual benefits of water savings and greater comfort.

Luxury shower heads offer a variety of settings from water-misers to pulsating massage.

There are luxury shower head designs that are detachable or adjustable so that you can have a back massage or artificial overhead rain shower.

Some shower heads include built in water filters to eliminate iron oxides that leave red residue in the shower.

Technology has come a long way in the last few years and the top rated models of water saving shower heads can provide you with a luxurious shower while at the same time make you feel good about saving some money on your water bill and doing your part to help the environment.

Vertical Storage

Vertical storage utilizes space in the narrow niches of your bathroom.  Adding vertical storage allows you to move your spare towels to the bathroom.

You’ll always have a place to stash the toilet paper you bought on sale and won’t have to worry about where to put your dirty clothes.

You can also get racks and shelves that hang on the wall if you find that you don’t have enough space for one that stands on the floor.


What are 3 luxury bathroom accessories you should avoid?

Heated Toilet Seats

While a cold toilet seat is annoying, it quickly warms to body temperature. You can lessen the shock by getting padded toilet seats and a cloth cover.

Installing a toilet seat with a built in heating element is not a luxury and probably not even necessary. If your bathroom is so cold that it is a shock to sit on the toilet, install a Warmrails towel warmer instead to heat up the room and keep towels cozy.


Your bathroom is not a recreation room. You shouldn’t be on the toilet long enough to miss part of your favorite show. A TV near the bathtub is an electrical shock waiting to happen.

Grab Bars

Grab bars are necessary for the elderly and disabled to get up from the toilet and out of the shower – even if they are using a handicapped shower seat.  If your health or mobility is worsening, grab bars may be a good idea.

However, grab bars should be installed as part of a general bathroom remodel to a universal design, an arrangement that can be used when someone has limited mobility or uses a wheel chair. Grab bars installed on a whim now may make it harder to convert the bathroom to a handicap-friendly design later.
