Your bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your home. It’s the one room that pretty much everyone will use at one point or another, and the décor can make or break a house’s theme. In order for you to truly be able to say your home is one style or another, you need to make sure this room is outfitted with the right decorative bathroom hardware.

One of the most important aspects of any bathroom design is the hardware. This includes faucets, towel bars, robe hooks, toilet paper holders, and more. All of these come in a variety of styles, materials, and finishes. Choosing the right one can make all the difference. In this article, we’ll explore how to pick the perfect decorative bathroom hardware for your home.


One of the first things to keep in mind when choosing hardware for your bathroom is the function of the piece you’re looking to get or replace. Do you need a towel bar to hang towels? A robe hook for a bathrobe? Something purely decorative? All of this is important.

If the piece you’re looking at will serve a functional purpose, you need to make sure its decorative elements won’t get in the way of the function it needs to perform. In addition, for a functional piece, you should make sure that you get something of quality to ensure that the finish doesn’t potentially come off because of contact with water or time.


After deciding on the functionality, take a good look around your home and try to discern what décor style resonates with you the most. Is it traditional? Modern? Coastal? This style should be reflected in the bathroom through your choice of hardware.

If your home leans traditional, you should look for decorative bathroom hardware that is classic and made out of metal or porcelain. Modern spaces should make use of sleek metal designs that are minimal over artsy. Coastal-style hardware should remind you of the beach and make you think of materials that could be made of sea shells.

In addition, color is also important. Bathroom hardware comes in a wide variety of finishes and pretty much any color you can imagine. Some people even opt to customize them on their own. However, this can be a tricky process. Whatever you choose to do, whether it be customized or purchased ready to go, make sure the hardware in your bathroom matches the overall color scheme of the room or house.

Finding a Supplier

Once you’ve decided on the function and style of your bathroom hardware, it’s time to start looking at where to buy them. Ideally, you should look at places that carry long-lasting high-quality products. These will be sure to last you a lifetime and typically require little maintenance. Bonus points if the supplier is willing to help you install the pieces you have purchased.

However, you should also make sure that wherever you get your hardware it should be purchased to fit within your budget. There needs to be a balance between quality and your ability to afford what you’re getting.
