The importance of using a specifically designed hook
It can be tempting to not bother with bathroom accessories are matching their finishes. However, making sure that your accessories match is vital in creating a beautiful bathroom. They can become the focal point, a talking point if you like. It's essential to use hooks specifically designed for bathroom use. Otherwise, you run the risk of seeing your robe hooks rust or corrode.
Luckily, at ukBathrooms, all of our robe hooks are made to last. All bathroom environments are inevitably prone to humidity. The materials used by our selection of manufacturers are all guaranteed anti-corrosion.
Think about functionality and aesthetics
When choosing the right hook(s) it is important you take into account the different criteria of functionality and aesthetics.
First, the type of hook: do you want a single hook or a double or triple set of hooks?
If you're interested in a double robe hook, should it be horizontal or vertical?
You need to think about the number of people who will wish to use the hooks at the same time. Don't forget to take into account the shorter height of children who are going to use the bathroom. It may also be in your interest to consider purchasing several robe hooks. To create a stylish hanging area for towels, robes, or even loofahs and body brushes.
You need to think carefully about where you are going to fix your robe hooks. An obvious choice for items of clothing would be on the back of the door. Yet, it's worth considering the distance between the bath or shower and the door before settling for this solution.
It might be preferable to position the hooks on a wall or partition closer to the bath or shower to enhance convenience. We recommend experimenting with cardboard templates to find the perfect combination. As well as the layout of your robe hooks to help you create the unfussy, streamlined look you want.
Metal and finish
Next, ask yourself about the material that will best match your other bathroom fittings. Most robe hooks are either chrome, nickel, brass or stainless steel, all of which resist corrosion. The type of metal also determines the colour. Chrome, nickel and stainless steel are silver-coloured, while bronze and brass look rather like gold.
Another factor to consider is the finish. Depending on the manufacturer and the line you will be able to choose between a brushed, polished, satin or high shine finish.
If you are unsure how they will fit in with the rest of your bathroom accessories. Look at the photographs of the different robe hooks on offer and compare the finish with your other fittings.
The choice of finish is of prime importance if you are hoping to create a sleek, sophisticated, contemporary look. At the same time, if the other accessories in your bathroom are not at all coordinated. There will be absolutely no constraint in your choice of finish for your robe hooks.
There is another essential factor to take into account before you settle for your final choice: the design. Whether you choose between classic, modern or traditional. Our selection of manufacturers offers a wide range of robe hooks with clean lines for a fashionable living.
You can choose between soft square shapes, solid sleek cylinders, or smooth round robe hooks. To create an uncluttered, sophisticated look. Whatever your choice, the curvaceous smooth surfaces of your robe hooks. Will help create a modern, uncluttered look, giving an attractive, flowing appearance to your bathroom.
If you're interested in purchasing double or triple hooks. Take the time to have a good look at the entire selection before making your choice, as there is a wide range of products with very distinctive looks.
For the vertically positioned double hooks, you need to decide if you'd like them to be the same size, or if you prefer the top one to be bigger. Likewise, for the horizontally positioned double hooks, do you want them to be at 180° or at an oblique angle? Of course, it is more a question of taste than of practicality.
