White is a very common color when it comes to bathrooms. It reflects a lot of light, and so it helps keep the room bright. When it comes to bathroom accessories such as shower caddies, shower curtains, medicine cabinets and towel bars, white is an obvious choice. Or you could get these items in bright colors, as an easy way to break up the whiteness of the room.

In terms of shower caddies, there a many options to choose from, regardless of color. First there is the choice of materials.
When you’re in the shower, it’s important to have all that you need within close proximity. Shampoo, body wash, soap, conditioner, shaving cream, razor and whatever else you use can fit nicely in a variety of specifically designed shower caddies. Most shower caddies are easy to install and use suction to stay firmly attached to the shower wall. Consider buying stainless steel shower caddies as they should not rust or collect mold and stay looking good with just a minor cleaning after each shower.

Whether for decorative purposes or a more practical application, a double shower curtain rod can be used to separate a shower curtain from a liner, which can create a nice layered look that can add to the aesthetic and visual concept of your bathroom. And if you’re not interested in having both a liner and a shower curtain, the double rod can also be used to hang towels, adding a makeshift towel bar for your convenience.

As we get into our senior years, we begin to lose some degree of mobility and our sense of balance, which can be frustrating when it comes time to take a shower or bath. If you’re at the stage where you need assistance from someone to bathe you, a shower chair designed for the elderly might be something to consider. Padded arm rests and suctions cups on the feet of the chair help to safely get you on and off the chair with the help of a care-giver. You will also probably want someone else to set up the chair as it can be quite complicated.

When taking a shower, the last thing you want is to reach for something, only to realize that it is on the other side of your bathroom. Having a freestanding shower caddy in the corner of your shower (or at least near the bath) will allow you to have all that you need in one area. Shampoo, body wash, hair conditioner, razors and louffas or wash clothes can all be easily accessible without having to interrupt your showering time.
