New bathrooms cost money but that’s not to say there aren’t some simple styling tricks that will update your space without having to invest. Whether you create a rustic vibe with wooden shelving, freshen up with foliage or are in need of stylish storage, these are the seven easy ways to bring your bathroom up to date…
Add something extra with a wooden, in-bath shelf to hold all your favourite bath time bits – don’t forget a book and a candle for a relaxing soak.
Gather your most aesthetically-pleasing skincare, perfumes and haircare products and position on a tray for a contemporary take on bathroom storage. Opt for marble or rose gold for a slick take. Extra points for a Jo Malone or Diptyque candle holder for storing make-up brushes.
An ideal towel rack or shelving space depending on the style, a ladder is the simple interiors hack everyone needs in their bathroom – it's easy (you need only lean it against a wall) and the natural texture gives a pared-back feel.
A mainstay for all stylish bathrooms, Aesop products might not come cheap but the luxe feel and finish they give to any space is well worth it. Get matching hand wash and moisturiser for a boutique hotel vibe.
A neat, affordable and on-trend way to tidy away everything from towels to shampoos and conditioners – raffia baskets are a handy storage trick for every room of the house but look particularly good offset against a clean, all-white space.
Succulents & Foliage
Bring the outside in with a few well-placed plants. Choose varieties that will love the humidity of a bathroom and adjust according to space; whether it’s a large potted plant or a mini succulent, foliage brings a fresh look to any bathroom.
Simple yet effective, a few handy pots for toothbrushes, soap, skincare and everything else will instantly smarten your space. Go matching for a luxe look or opt for stone accents to keep things minimal.
Showcase your best products and bright white towels with open shelving, add artwork and prints for interest and use raffia baskets to tidy away any clutter. We love the idea of storing cotton pads and Q-tips in glass jars.
