Although bathrooms are typically smaller rooms in a home or apartment, they require many accessories to keep the space organized, clean, and functioning. It’s important to select products that will enhance the function of your bathroom, without being too obtrusive in tight quarters. This assortment of bath accessories includes streamlined designs alongside products that play with materiality and form to complement your modern bathroom.

Elegant bathroom storage with ladder-like silhouette

The Nomad Shelf System from Skagerak is part of an innovative storage system that has a thin, space-saving profile. Designed to resemble a ladder, the Nomad rests on the wall, keeping a small footprint. The ladder comes with four hooks, which make it easy to hang small accessories, and the rungs of the ladder can be draped with towels. The Nomad Ladder can be used with the Nomad shelf to create more surface area for storing other items.

Streamlined and functional waste bin for bathrooms

Available in brilliant white or bold black, this Pedal Bin from Menu is a necessary bathroom accessory that will complement a modern bathroom. The cylindrical shape is softened with a rounded base that makes the bin feel light, without compromising stability. The bin features an inner plastic bucket and intelligent bag lock so it is easy to keep liner bags in place. With a light touch of the pedal, the brushed steel lid opens, limiting the amount of effort required to use the bin.

Streamlined silicone bath accessories with wood accents

Kontextür’s WC Line is a collection of bathroom essentials, including a wastebasket, toilet brush, and plunger. Although necessary accessories often leave a lot to be desired from an aesthetic standpoint, the WC Line presents a cohesive, sleek, and modern assortment that work together to coordinate with contemporary bathrooms. Each item in the series is characterized by simple cylindrical shapes and sloped, funnel-like tops. Each WC Line item also features a wood handle for added consistency with the other pieces in the line.

Elegant glass storage vessels with hand-turned wood handles

These Dry Goods Vessels from Fort Standard were originally designed to be used in the kitchen to store various dry goods, from coffee beans to pasta. The vessels can also be used in a modern bathroom, storing cotton balls, cotton swabs, and other essential items. Defined by its thin, cylindrical glass shape, each vessel is sealed with a large cork stopper with turned hardwood handles. The play of materials—glass, cork, and wood—creates visual interest to otherwise simple pieces.

Innovative wall mirror with slim profile and convenient drawer

Designed by Andrea Stemmer for SCP, the Jules Mirror is an unframed, rectangular portrait mirror that works well in a small-profile bathroom. The mirror features a solid oak storage shelf at its base, which can be used to hold small items including makeup, toiletries, or even favorite photographs and postcards. The shelf is made from a single piece of wood and is shaped like a half pipe, which counters the rigid straight lines of the mirror with a warm curvature.

Simple teak folding stool for indoor and outdoor use

Crafted from versatile teak wood, the Fionia Folding Stool is a practical accent piece that can be used as a storage surface in a bathroom or, as a stool when applying lotion or makeup. The stool is constructed with hinges so it is easy to fold and transport to a new location, or put away for storage when not in use. When unfolded, the Fionia Folding Stool is a three-dimensional X-shape that is defined by the airy recesses between the teak strips.

Colorful and versatile wall-mountable hooks

Designed in the style of cloakroom pegs, this set of three Pegs is a colorful storage solution that can be used in a variety of ways. The Pegs can be installed in a horizontal line, used on their own, or grouped in a cluster. The Pegs are designed for hanging items, and can be used on a bathroom wall to hold towels and bath accessories. Smaller and less obtrusive than a rack of hooks, these Pegs will complement a small bathroom interior.
