Utilitarian accessories

Utilitarian accessories are necessarily included in domestic as well as nonresidential projects. Some interiors, such as offices, require more functional accessories, than others. In a typical office for a desk alone, a designer would specify a file tray, pen and pencil holder, calendar telephone, ashtray, and picture frames for personal photographs. The office would also need a waste basket, a clock calendar and an umbrella stand. The same accessories may be needed in a number of rooms in a residence also.

In a residence the number of functional accessories increases to aid in the flow of work. Living rooms and bedrooms needs to have accessories such as clocks, vases, candlesticks, and trays for holding smaller objects. Dining rooms or eating areas usually need the greatest number of utilitarian acces­sories like the dinnerware, flatware, glasses, and table coverings. Dining room accessories need two considerations the beauty with their function and their ease and convenience of storage. Kitchens are filled with an array of functional equipment selected by the home maker or a designer. Bathrooms need wastebaskets, tissue boxes, mirrors, hand mirrors, soap holders.
