Q. I'm a loyal reader and know that you have spent more time in bathrooms than just about anyone else I know. With that said, I'm doing a total remodel job of my master bathroom, complete with new plumbing fixtures. If you can give me a word of advice on what not to forget or overlook, what would that be? Thanks for your help, and keep up the good work!

A. I believe that the secret to a beautiful bathroom is all in the details. When it comes to bathrooms, the details are in the accessories. Accessories can include things like robe hooks, shelves, lighting fixtures, toilet-paper holders, grab bars and towel bars.

It sounds like basic information, but I am surprised at how many people overlook these details in the planning stage, or install low-end accessories in a nice bathroom. Quality accessories that match and complement your plumbing fixtures can be the finishing touch that puts your bathroom over the top.

The good news is that many manufacturers also make accessories that perfectly match their plumbing fixtures So, you don't have to look far to find that beautiful medicine cabinet that's designed to mirror the look of your faucets.
