The best teak accessories are beautiful, polished and well made. Teak wood is smooth and warm with attractive graining. It's a material that stands up to moist environments such as boats and bathrooms because it has natural mold-resistant qualities. Occasional polishing with teak oil can keep the shine replenished on all types of teak accessories.

Yachts with teak trims and accents can look elegant and the best teak accessories for boats are often those sold in kits because all the wood pieces are designed to coordinate together. Most yacht teak accessory packages include pieces such as grab bars, light switch covers, molding trims, cup holders, magazine racks, hooks and drawer pulls. Teak boat accessory packs may be for specific areas such as the kitchen or galley or the bathroom or head. Galley teak accessories include cutting boards and paper towel holders as well as spice and mug racks, while teak products for the head include toothbrush holders, tissue holders and towel shelves, bars, rings and racks. Additional teak products for yachts include teak-trimmed mirrors and desk sets.

Home bathrooms can become spa-like with the addition of quality teak accessories. Teak benches and shower stools are popular. Teak benches can create a spa look when placed against a bathroom wall to use as seating with teak or metal towel hooks or racks hung above the bench to provide storage for towels. Teak shower stools are often triangular to save space in showers and these allow for proper foot cleansing as well as provide seating for those who may be unsteady standing in the shower. A teak butler tray has folding, scissor-like legs and is designed to hold bath accessories such as sponges and lotions outside the shower.

Teak bath accessories are also made for bathroom countertops or the toilet tank top. Smooth teak trays look great anywhere in a bathroom holding everything from containers of soap to vases of flowers. Teak toothbrush holders, and teak-trimmed cups and soap dishes are often sold in sets. Teak towel stands, wastebaskets and laundry hampers are also available. The best teak accessories for bathrooms are functional as well as attractive and coordinate to create a fluid cohesive look that's calming and relaxing.
