Paige Hemmis’ 2015 Bathroom Trends
- 2 Baskets: You can choose any style you would like such as wicker, linen, plastic, canvas or wire. Choose a size that will fit toilet paper rolls and other bathroom essentials. I’ve chosen wire baskets with a linen lining. I will fill one basket with toilet paper (2 rolls will fit side by side), and one basket with washcloths/towels.
- 4 Hooks: You can choose any style you would like that would compliment your bathroom. I’ve chosen a coat hook in a Venetian Bronze color to match the fixtures in my bathroom. Although there are many styles to choose from including bathroom towel hooks, I chose the coat hook since the style was a bit fancier.
- Electric drill
- 1/16 inch drill bit OR 3/16 inch drill bit (depending on mounting surface)
- Phillips screwdriver
- Safety Goggles
To hang the hooks on the wall:
- Use your pencil and mark the desired location for your hooks. I’ve chosen two hooks to hold up one basket, and plan to mount these baskets horizontally on top of one another.
- If you are mounting to a stud, drill 1/16” pilot hole and skip to step number four.
- If you are mounting to drywall or ceramic tile, drill 3/16” pilot holes and insert plastic anchors into holes. Use a hammer to tap in the anchors until it is flush with the wall. Be VERY careful if hammering into ceramic as tiles break easily.
- Screw in the screws into the holes using a Phillips screwdriver (or Phillips head attachment on your drill)
- Hang your hooks.
To enhance your basket:
- I bought wire baskets with a linen lining that is a neutral color. If you would like to keep your colors neutral, you can just hang your baskets on the hook. I want to add a little color to mine.
- Take ribbon and weave the ribbon in and out of the wire all the way around the basket.
- You can either finish the look off with a knot or a bow. I am choosing to add a bow to the front of my baskets.
- Hang the baskets on the hooks and fill with any bathroom essentials you will need.
