CERAMICS ADD COLOR
Clear glass is the most popular countertop container material, but new offerings in ceramic or translucent glass obscure less attractive objects, from disposable razors to an extra roll of toilet paper. At the same time, these models can add color or pattern to an otherwise drab bathroom, or even a sense of history.
Kohler, for example, makes a series of Ankara ceramic canisters that feature a delicate filigree and diamond pattern in tones of blue inspired by a 14th century water vessel unearthed near the Euphrates River in Turkey. A Fables and Flowers set populated with tulips in shades of red, pink and white is based on 17th century English botanical drawings.
Tall, cylindrical Mediterranean-style glass canisters in red or amber can bring color into an all-white bath without going over the top, says Accents of Salado's Cynthia Watson. "The colors are so bright and crisp and glass is naturally such a clean, hygienic material," she says.
