8 Easy Ways to Make Your Bathroom More Luxe

The bathroom, whether shared by the family or an ensuite haven, is often the most overlooked room in the house, but in the midst of winter – when indulgent pampering sessions and long, luxurious baths are a top priority – it pays to make the space that much more attractive.

If you don’t have the time, budget or patience for a major overhaul, look to these eight easy ways to transform a tired room into a much more elegant space. From statement mirrors to subtle scented candles, these ideas from top interior designers are guaranteed to give you a five-star bathroom. 

MAKE IT SMELL LIKE A SPA

“Imagine the best hotel room you’ve ever stayed in; what made the bathroom space so appealing? Often it’s the clean, uncluttered space and small luxurious touches. Candles are a great way to achieve this – they play to your sense of smell and immediately create a sense of atmosphere. — Jamie Horton, Managing Director at Harlequin London

“Scented candles create a serene spa-like retreat. Our favourite are the ultra-luxurious (and beautiful to look at) Cire Trudon.” — Charlotte Wood, Founder & Floral Designer at Wild Wood London

WORK STATEMENT WALLPAPER

Combine pattern and colour to create a design-led look in your bathroom. Wallpaper is great for this, just be sure to choose colours that harmonise – a fun animal or abstract print, for example, works well with a simple white or cream colour palette with finishing touches that pick up one or two colours in the wallpaper.” — Alice Dunbar
