Beautiful bathroom decor isn't just about colors, flooring, and tiles. Although these make a big difference in the overall look of your space, you can't forget about the smaller details: faucet style, vanity hardware, and, of course, towel and bathrobe hooks.

Hooks usually keep a low profile because of their practical function. But paying attention to this small detail and using creativity can help you use hooks as more than just functional features: they can be part of the decor too.

Here are 9 bathroom hooks that suit every style bathroom.

    Kids' Bathroom With Animal Hook

    House of Jade Interiors

    Kids' bathrooms have a love affair with animals of all kinds, marine and terrestrial alike. This minimal, contemporary kids' bathroom by House of Jade Interiors is no exception, even if the animal presence is a little more subtle. The animal head hook provides just the right amount of decorative flair, without overpowering the space. Even the animal itself is on the abstract side, suggesting rather than representing a horse.

    You can choose from all kinds of animals for decorative hooks, from elephants and deer to octopi, bats, and rhinos

This bathroom by​ ​Caitlin Wilson Design is all white with added touches of brass everywhere, including the carefully chosen door hook. Sometimes all you need is a small detail to bring a space together, rather than something splashy and attention-getting.

    Dayka Robinson Designs

    The hook from this bathroom by Dayka Robinson Designs is particularly interesting because of its wiry, open geometrical design. It's refreshing compared to the heavy, full hooks that we tend to see in most bathrooms. Hook racks with similar hook designs are easy to find and install, especially if you need more than two hooks for the whole family. Also note the original staircase-like subway tile pattern, which is another refreshing change from the typical installation.
