After you are done with important stuff, you can then add things in for extra comfort and ease like scented candles and candle holders.

These accessories don’t include the most basic things, but they definitely include the things you need. Every person has different preferences and hence different needs. For example, if you prefer to take a shower basket with you while going in for a shower. Or, you want to keep you stuff stacked on the glass shelves inside the bathroom. It all falls down to your needs and choices.
Never compromise on the quality
Budget is an important factor to consider but not to compromise over the quality of the accessories. You cannot keep buying stuff over and over again if the recent comes out defective.
Start small and buy the most necessary stuff like a tumbler holder, shower mat, sink faucets etc. Then add the other stuff when you have more money. Make sure that every stuff that you buy is of supreme quality so that you can save money in the long run.

Characteristics of bathroom accessories-
Some highly favorable qualities that are looked for when buying bathroom accessories include the following:

For these reasons, wooden accessories are by far the rarest to be used and bought for the bathroom’s decoration. Metals and plastics are the most desirable choices because they are water-resistant and strong.
Cost seems to matter everywhere and the only thing that is important is that you do not overburden yourself with the most basics of needs. So, buy the simple rather than extravagant accessories as it is just your bathroom.
The strength of the accessories is important as you do not want any mishaps from the accidental breakage. Strength is also crucial because it makes a material durable and last longer, a quality wanted by all types of furniture, accessories and decoration. Another important thing to consider is that metal-made surfaces do not have sharp edges. They can be dangerous for you and cause accidental cuts and scratches.
Materials used in bathroom accessories

Chrome is short for chromium which is a metal. It is not purely used but used as a coating, as enamel for other metals like Iron and Steel. This provides strength and corrosion-resistance to the resulting material. Chrome coated substance is silver with a blue subtle shade and shine.
