Embarking upon a bathroom renovation? We know the drill.

First off you'll start thinking about the size of your room - what can you actually fit in it? You'll then begin to make all sorts of decisions about the type of suite you want - will it be traditional or contemporary in style? Do you want a bath, shower or both?  What kind of furniture will you add?

All very, very important considerations, but sometimes it's all too easy to get lost in the bigger picture. Before you finish thinking about it, make sure you pay some attention to your bathroom accessories.

Why it's important to accessorise

A careful choice of complementary and matching accessories can really enhance the overall look and style of your bathroom. All too often, the design is finalised and installed and then you find yourself struggling to find those perfect finishing touches. At the end of the day, you don't want to end up with a bathroom that is anything less than what you dreamed of. And you certainly don't want to end up with a mish-mash of badly matching, ill-suited accessories in an array of different colours, finishes and materials.

Here at VictoriaPlum.com we've launched 4 brand new ranges of bathroom accessories, providing you with all the finishing touches you'll need and all delivered direct to you!

New bathroom accessory ranges

Solar Range

Along with our existing Cubik, Phaze and Matrix Ranges, the new Solar Bathroom Accessories Range combines chic, contemporary styling, with everyday functionality. With an array of wall mounted accessory options, you can keep the style flowing throughout your bathroom.

My personal favourites from this collection:

Solar Toilet Roll Holder

One of the most functional items you'll ever find and never known for its style, yet this very simple chrome toilet roll holder will help bring your bathroom bang up to date. The only question is, which way will you hang your toilet roll?

Solar Glass Tumbler & Holder

Keep your toothbrushes and toothpaste neatly and tidily stored with this wall mounted glass tumbler. The chrome fixing adds a touch of sparkle to what would otherwise be a dull and uninspiring piece of wall!

Camberley and Winchester ranges

With an increase in the popularity of traditional style bathrooms, bathroom retailers, such as VictoriaPlum.com, have sought to expand their range of traditional bathroom products - and with bathroom accessories there's no exception.

The Camberley Range features angular designs which work particularly well with square shaped basins and furniture. The bevelled edges add a beautiful aesthetic and give a subtle nod to art deco styles from the 1920s.

My personal favourites from this collection:

Camberley Square Towel Ring

It would appear to be a contradiction in terms, but this square ring has class in abundance. The angular lines of the wall fixing are echoed and magnified in the shape of the ring, adding elegance and style to your bathroom. It also solves the problem of having to find a small towel rail for a tight space.

Camberley Ceramic Soap Pump Dispenser

For a real touch of class, this ceramic soap pump dispenser is a must-have accessory. No slippery bar of soap for this homeowner!

The Winchester Range is also a traditional accessory collection, but features softer, more rounded shapes than the Camberley. Along with chrome, the fixings feature a white ceramic inlay to add a beautiful touch of contrast to the overall design.

My personal favourites from this collection:

Winchester Double Robe Hook

With a slightly nautical look to it, it's incredible how such a small, functional item can be designed with so much character. A robe hook fit to grace any bathroom door.

Winchester Toilet Brush and Ceramic Holder

"How can a toilet brush and holder be a favourite?" I hear you cry! Well, sometimes it is just the tiniest of tiny details which sets something apart from the rest. In the case of this Winchester Toilet Brush, the brush handle simply looks like an integral part of the bathroom, rather than a cleaning implement - coupled with the beautiful ceramic holder and wall fixing, it helps turns the mundane and ugly into a thing of intrigue and beauty.

Options Range

Options by name. Options by nature. This new range is all about providing you with a much wider choice when it comes to bathroom accessories. Along with the traditional selection of toilet brush holders and soap dishes, you'll find freestanding, designer towel rails, glass shelving, brass basket-style shower storage and much more. With such a flexible choice of stylish and contemporary accessories, you might not know where to begin!

So here are my personal favourites from this collection:

Options Traditional Towel Shelf and Rail

One of the most frustrating aspects of my own personal home is the number of towels we have dotted all over the place. There is simply a lack of space in which to store them. This is why I love the simple design of this towel shelf and rail. With space on top for folded towels waiting to be used, coupled with hanging space for towels in use, it is gloriously understated yet beautifully functional. The perfect bathroom towel storage! This particular model is actually designed in a more traditional style, but there is also a contemporary design available.

Options Freestanding Quadrant 3 Glass Shelf Unit

This shelving unit is absolutely ideal for those who don't want to drill into walls to provide more storage. Easily assembled, this unit fits snugly into the corner of your bathroom to provide ample space for towels, toiletries, potions and lotions.
