Accessorise your Bathroom for Summer

Must have summer accessories for the bathroom

With summer in full swing, it’s the perfect time to spruce up your bathroom with fresh, sunny accessories. There are a variety of ways you can welcome the sun in, from bright and breezy colours to summer showering essentials.

 Lather, rinse, repeat

With plenty of hot days ahead of us the shower is in high demand. Heritage offers a wide variety of shower options and combinations, with the ability to mix and match valves, single or dual controls and the kit itself, giving the freedom to create your perfect shower. Consider our Avenbury shower to turn your wash space into an at home spa. Pair your dream shower with essential shower accessories such as wall hung wire baskets and shower tidies which can store all your daily wash products. And don’t forget to install a robe hook for after those brisk summer showers!


Ditch the dryer, try a towel rail

During the summer many of us opt for the washing line over a dryer. However, heavy towels often take up too much room, block the sun and are too weighty to dry outside, and with showers growing more frequent in the hot months dry towels must always be at the ready.

Consider fitting a multileveled towel rail such as Heritage’s wall mounted Portland which can fit enough towels for the entire family with ease. With the ability to heat towels in the cooler seasons the Portland, Clifton and Cabot towel rails are not only ideal for summer.

Conversely, if space is at a premium a Holborn double towel shelf may be more suitable, both roomy enough for multiple towels whilst taking up less precious vertical space.

Let the sunshine in

Summer is the ideal time to experiment with colour. Whilst other rooms in the home are freshened up with flowers, the bathroom can sometimes be forgotten. This summer, harness tropical tones such as coral blue or vibrant yellow to revitalise your bathroom for the hot weeks ahead.

Make a big splash with bright tiles, a fresh coat of paint on the wall or perhaps experiment with our cast iron baths, all of which are paintable to suit your style.

However, colour can be daunting for many so for those nervous about bright and bold shades consider vibrant accessories which add a pop of colour without the commitment of painting a wall or investing in furniture. Consider swapping out your toilet seat, Heritage offers a variety of shades to pick from.

Tufted multicoloured bathmats or mismatched towels can introduce a bright summery feel but for an even smaller commitment display things you already have, bring ornaments into the bathroom, display your bath bombs in a basket or brighten up your bathe with flowers and citrus slices in the tub.

You can also bring the outside in with plants. Consider low maintenance cacti and succulents or go big with tropical plants displayed in bright plant pots.

It’s clear that accessories can really transform a room, from hanging a mirror to simply swapping out your taps can revitalise the entire space. Perhaps consider a new warm finish such as soft vintage gold, available across all taps in the Dawlish range.

The ideal summer suite

No matter how you decide to decorate your bathroom this summer from vivid multicolour to subtle pops of summer, make design choices that suit your unique style whilst welcoming in the new season.
