The Bathroom Accessories Buying Guide

Bathroom accessory ideas for any style and budget

Friday 17th September 2021

Whether you’re completing a full bathroom project or just looking to make small but impactful differences, bathroom accessories are a necessary consideration. From the more practical extractor fans and independent living accessories to mirrors, showerheads and all the finishing touches, it’s easy to find bathroom accessories to suit your style and needs. Read on for bathroom accessory ideas to help you make the most of your space.



Shower Fittings

We appreciate that replacing your existing shower when it’s still in working condition, but starting to look tired in its appearance, might seem excessive and potentially costly. That’s why we offer Mira Shower Fittings kits which contain a showerhead, hose and slide bar (which are adjustable to cover over previous screw holes). This simple upgrade can not only make a considerable difference to your bathroom look but also upgrade your shower’s performance. 


Mira Switch Spray Modes


Mira showerheads are engineered to deliver a truly invigorating showering experience, so by simply, switching your showerhead to a Mira, you will notice the difference. The award-winning Mira Switch showerhead comes with four unique spray modes – Soak, Stimulate, Saturate and Soothe – which can be changed at the push of a button. Alternatively, the Mira 360 showerhead features Mira Flipstream™ technology, with four spray modes to flip between.  

Our range includes fixed showerheads, deluge showerheads, multi-mode and single spray showerheads. Browse the full range to find the one that best suits your needs; all Mira showerheads have universal fit meaning they are guaranteed to replace your existing showerhead. 

Shower plug-in accessories

Designed to maximise your showering experience, our handy accessories range is available both as a plug-in or standalone option for the Mira Agile or Mira Adept mixer showers. If you’re looking for easy access storage in the shower, or a practical dispenser for your shampoo or shower gel, we have the perfect finishing touch. 

Shower hoses

There’s more to our Mira shower hoses than meets the eye. Whilst you might not expect a shower hose to make a difference to your showering experience, ours feature a high flow design to increase the performance of your shower. Durable and strong, these shower hoses are anti-kink to ensure consistent water flow and come in 1.25m and 1.75m options. Plus, Mira shower hoses have a universal fit and are therefore guaranteed to work with your existing shower. 

Wall covering 

When it comes to covering your walls, tiles are the most traditional option, with a wide range of shapes, sizes and colours to choose from. Hire a professional to do the job for you, or learn how to tile a bathroom yourself to save money and learn a new skill.  

Shower wall panels are a great alternative to tiles. They’re quicker and easier to fit, they’re durable and leakproof and they’re easy to clean. Find out the other benefits of wall panels vs tiles.  

Bathroom flooring 

There are loads of options to choose from for your bathroom floor, with some the most popular choices including tiles, vinyl and lino. Take a look at our comprehensive list of bathroom flooring ideas to help you make your decision. 

Independent Living accessories 

We recognise that as you get older, simple day-to-day activities such as showering can become more difficult. That’s why our Independent Living range has some practical yet stylish bathroom accessories that can help, without looking like standard mobility aids.  

Our grab rails for example, have a premium chrome finish and come in different sizes; they also double up as a towel rail, making them both functional and discreet. Plus, our shower seats are perfect for those who prefer showering while seated. It’s easily folded away when not in use, to keep your bathroom looking clutter-free. See our Top Tips for a Safe and Stylish bathroom for more information. 

Extractor fan 

It’s important to keep your bathroom well ventilated, and the best way to do this is with an extractor fan. This will help to prevent condensation, which can lead to mould. You can install an extractor fan in the window, wall or ceiling, but you’ll most likely want to hire a professional to do the job for you as the fan will need to be connected to your home’s mains electricity. 


Every bathroom needs a mirror. They’re a must-have when it comes to shaving, putting your contact lenses in and doing your makeup, and they also help to bounce light around and give your bathroom the feeling of space, especially in smaller rooms. Choose an anti-fog design or a style with built-in lighting for a high-tech option. 


Storage is key in the bathroom, particularly for those on the smaller side, and one of the easiest ways to increase storage space is by installing a shelf or two. Add one above the sink for holding your toothbrush, soap and other essentials, above your bathroom door to store items that you don’t need regular access to, like spare towels or extra toilet paper, or on any spare wall space to display your favourite trinkets. 

Finishing touches 

Your main plumbing, fixtures and fittings are sorted, but let’s not forget about the finishing touches. Other bathroom accessories to consider include toilet roll dispensers, toilet brushes and holders, bins, towels hooks or rails, soap dishes and toothbrush holders, and those all-important fluffy towels and bathmats. For a coherent finish, you might choose to buy a matching bathroom accessories set featuring some or all of these items.
