RL Picks: Hardware Finds for the Bathroom

Aside from nails and tools, you’ll find mirrors, caddies, and storage solutions, too!


Without a doubt, the hardware holds numerous possibilities. Aside from finding a couple of bedroom must-haves, you’ll surely score some bathroom items as well. Interior designer Rochelle Granali shares – “The good thing about hardware stores is that the items you need such as accessories, fixtures, etc. are grouped next to each other so if you plan to buy stuff for your bathroom, you could get it all in one place.”

Picks by Paula de Guzman, Dagny Madamba, and Tala Singson. Photographed by Louie Aguinaldo, Kurt Alvarez, and Dairy Darilag.
