As you may have imagined, the number of accessories, the size of them, and the overall type of accessory will depend greatly on how much space you have. If you have a small bathroom for example, you definitely do not want to purchase a large amount of unnecessary accessories, for they will use up all the precious space in your bathroom. Even larger bathrooms need to only have a limited number of accesories for them to look well-designed and organized. So, just remember to keep in mind the available space you have.
Know Who Will Use the Accessories
Although it may seem like an unimportant step, knowing who will be using the accessories you are looking for will make a difference as to what type of accessories your purchase and why. Due to the fact that each accessory has a purpose, and come in handy at some point, it is important to know for what and by whom they will be used.
If your bathroom will be used by kids for example, you might want to take into consideration things like stools for them to reach the sink, slip-free rugs in the shower to avoid falls, smaller sized toothbrush holders and more. There are a wide variety of accessories that are perfect for family bathrooms, so if your bathroom is going to be used by kids and adults alike, it is important to not forget it when looking for accessories.
However, if you are choosing these accessories for a smaller apartment that will only be used by yourself for example, you can limit the amount of accessories you need to minimalistic, elegant pieces that will help the overall functionality of the bathroom, but not overwhelm it. Simply know by whom your bathroom will be used, and finding the perfect accessories will be one bit easier.
Know Your Look and Feel

By knowing the overall image you are aiming for, it'll be easier to choose the right type of accessories that fit perfectly with your bathroom dream.
For this step, it is necessary to take into consideration the smallest details for all accessories to come together beautifully, and blend with your bathroom seamlessly. To ensure that all accessories go good together, a good tip is to purchase them all at once, or the keep them close at hand, to know if one goes good with the other and so on.
By simply keeping in mind the color palettes used in your bathroom, the materials, and even the architecture and size of your bathroom, you can choose accessories that will not look out of place or unnecessary. Simply don't forget about the overall look and feel of your bathroom, and you can choose the perfect accessories easily.
Know What You Need
Now that you have an idea of who will be using the accessories you are searching for, and the overall look and feel you're aiming to achieve in your bathroom, you can start making a small list of what accessories you are going to need.

Although the more important type of accessories are usually focused on, they're handful of other types of accessories that you're going to need in the long run. For this step, it is important to look far in to the future, and think of the small details that you're going to utilize on your daily routines, such as toothbrush holders, soap dishes, shower curtains, and more. Try to focus not only on the big things, but also the small and simple, to get everything you need from your modern bathroom accessories.

Don't Worry About the Brand
When looking for additions to a modern home, it is easy to focus too much on the brand that you're purchasing and to forget or ignore the overall quality, ease-of-use, and functionality that the actual item or accessory offers. When looking for the perfect accessories for your modern bathroom, however, try not to focus so much on the brand, but focus more on the quality of the actual product.
On today's market, it is easy to find a wide variety of products from new up-and-coming brands, that might not be the most popular, but that offer the same quality as their competitors. Be sure to focus more on the overall quality of the accessory, as opposed to only taking in mind the brand and its popularity.
Choose Quality Accessories for a Good Price
Although many may think that if a product has a high price, it automatically is high-quality, this is actually not the case. There are a wide variety of accessories on today's market that are set at a very affordable price, but that are made from the highest quality of materials, and designed to offer long-lasting functionality and beauty.
To choose high quality, well-made products that are set at a good price, it is important to keep an eye out for well-priced products that have a large number of positive reviews from users. When looking for accessories, take your time checking reviews from users, ask as many questions as possible from the company support, and be sure about the quality of the product before purchasing.
Another great tip is to only purchase accessories that you have seen with your own eyes. Instead of purchasing accessories online, find accessories near you, that you can hold in your hand, feel the quality, see the size, and see if it is perfect for your modern bathroom or not. Or purchase products that you can easily send back if unsatisfied. This will ensure that you will not make a mistake, or purchase something that is not the quality you expected or deserved.
Yes, staying organized while going through the ‘accessory choosing process’ is super important. In my own experience, I have found that having everything organized, knowing what I need, having a set budget, and the image of what I would like my bathroom to look like helps immensely in finding the perfect accessories.

This is why not forgetting what you need is more than important, and staying organized will help with this process.
A great tip is to keep lists of the things that you think you're going to need, their sizes, the overall look and feel of these accessories, and a set budget. This will simply allow you to not forget the things you need, how much you are willing to pay for them, where you are going to place them, what size they need to be and more.
