The secret is to refresh the space using new, small-scale furnishings. A few well-chosen accessories can really make all the difference. Here are our tips on how to transform your bathroom with accessories.

Invest in a statement mirror

Mirrors create a huge impact in any bathroom and add a great deal of style. You might like to seek out a large antique style mirror to set off your freestanding bath, for example. Or, if your taste is more modern, add an LED mirror to bring light and functionality into the room.

Update your bathroom lighting

Good lighting is essential in making your bathroom a welcoming space. If your current room is a little dark and dingy, invest in spotlights to bring brightness where you need it. Or, you can add a touch of luxury with a ceiling chandelier, or enhance your bathtime with a set of scented candles. Whatever the look you’re aiming for, there’ll be a new lighting option to suit.

Brighten up your bathroom

Most bathrooms are largely white which, for some, can be a little bland. One option is to bring in some accents of colour by co-ordinating a few items. Match a brightly coloured flowering plant with hand towels, storage boxes and a soap dispenser; paint one wall in a cheerful shade or add a statement shower curtain or window blind.

Shop accessories

Cut the clutter with bathroom storage

For some of us it’s not the bathroom itself than needs a change, but the contents. If your bathroom is cluttered with hair products, make up, toothbrushes and other bits and bobs, seek out some clever storage options to tidy things up. Add a chest of drawers, shelves and storage boxes or replace your sink with an affordable vanity unit to unlock a whole new area of space.

Match up your bathroom fittings

Take a look at fittings like your toilet roll holder, towel holder, robe hooks and soap dish. A very effective way to smarten up your bathroom is to replace these items with a matching set. There are all kinds of ranges to choose from, from chrome to matte black. Cost effective and easy to install, these accessories will tie the bathroom together with effortless style.
