All throughout your home, your own personal sense of style is reflected. Maybe your living room is adorned with wicker, plants and lithographs of the ocean. Or possibly, you like things a little more cutting-edge, so you have modern art on your walls and the most current furniture styles. Perhaps your kitchen is adorned with sweet country touches in every nook and cranny – or maybe it looks just like a Food Network kitchen with black accessories and stainless steel appliances.

But your bathroom… well, maybe that white plastic shower curtain and fuzzy pink toilet seat cover don’t quite show your uniqueness, and maybe that old metal medicine cabinet that came with the house is looking just a little bit outdated. How can you easily jazz up your home’s throne room to show your individual sense of style? It’s easy, when you choose the right accessories.

Your bathroom can go beyond function and truly become a place of rest and relaxation just by making a few changes and adding some accessories that show your style and personality. Here are a few suggestions that can transform your bath from boring to boldly you in no time flat:

A fresh coat of paint: Are your bathroom walls a shade that you might find in the Forman bathroom on “That 70s Show”? Painting them is a simple fix that can instantly give your bath a boost… whether you choose to bring it into this century or go retro is entirely up to you. Whatever your color choice, the best paint to use is specially formulated bath paint, which has added mold inhibitors and the proper sheen, which keeps your bathroom walls mildew-free and easy to clean.

New towels and fixtures: Are your towels faded and frayed? Is your towel bar moldy or rusty? Are your robe hooks unattractively caked with hair styling products? Then it’s probably time to replace those towels and fixtures with something new. Fahy Kitchens & Bath have a number of accessories from leading manufacturers like Berenson, Top Knobs and Hardware Resources, and we’ll be happy to help you find fixtures that suit your sense of style.

That sinking feeling: Has your faucet seen better days? Is your sink chipped, cracked, stained or otherwise unattractive? Then you might want to consider replacing it with something new and inviting. We offer high quality, durable sinks, faucets and fixtures from top brands like Kohler, Delta and Moen.

Plastic, fantastic shower curtain: Often, the shower curtain is a main focal point in the bathroom. If it’s hanging askew, missing a few hooks, sporting a couple of tears and looking dingy, that shower curtain is going to bring your whole bathroom down. Replacing your old shower curtain with a new one that shows your style is simple enough, or you can install new shower doors. Fahy is pleased to offer stylish, high quality shower doors from Century Glassworks and Basco.

Soap opera: Sink accessories are a great way to inexpensively make your bathroom look better and show your individuality. If you have a blob of soap sitting by the faucet and toothbrushes strewn from one end of your vanity to the other, new sink accessories are in order. Matching accessory sets that include soap dishes, toothbrush holders and trash bins are readily available at many popular retail stores, in any number of designs, colors and styles.
