I got a question from a very important reader, my mom, about my post, How to Fix a Boring Builder Grade Bath. One of the updates I mentioned was to take down your towel bar and replace it with hooks. She had the guest bath towel bar down within minutes!

Here was the question she had. There are a ton of hooks out there, what hooks should she use? I came up with some options and sent them over. I wanted to share my suggestions and a few more in case you find yourself looking for some good bathroom hooks. We have No. 6 in our master just outside the shower, it's huge. I think the bunny hook would be great in a kid's bath.
She had another question. My mom also removed the towel bar over her master tub, and as I did, she's wanting to replace it with art and use a stool next to the tub to hold the towel and other items. The question was, what type of stool should she be looking for?
I love the look of a stool next to the tub. It adds another layer to the bathroom and makes it much more interesting. I also pull ours up to the vanity so I can sit while putting on my makeup. You can find a ton of photos with this look in bathrooms with stand alone tubs.

But, I wanted to show you a couple of examples of tubs other than stand alone. Proof that it also looks great with other tubs styles as well.

You definitely need to consider your bathroom size when looking for a stool. I love the look of a wooden stool in a mostly white bathroom. The contrast is so pretty and really warms it up. If you already have a lot going in your bathroom, maybe a white glazed garden stool would blend a little better. Here are some I've rounded up, including the small side table (No. 1) that I use in my bathroom.
And to finish off the rest of your space, here are some accessories that would look great in any bathroom. Water scenes are right at home in a bathroom. For those of us who have black thumbs, here are some pretty faux plant options. And, you can never go wrong with beautiful towels!
