The bathroom tends to be one of the most overlooked rooms of the home, and unjustly so. Beyond serving a practical function, it can be a place of relaxation and calm – if it's given the attention it deserves. Before you go ripping up tiles and repainting the walls, start with a few small and affordable aesthetic adjustments. From a statement-making mirror to eye-catching art, these items are bound to breathe new life into your bathroom.

The mirror: Swoon

Swoon never fails to impress with its striking homeware designs. This handcrafted round mirror is proof of its prowess, with a thick frame and luxurious leather strap that will bring a touch of mid-century elegance to your bathroom and greatly enhance your grooming experience.

The candle: Unrecorded

Unrecorded has made a name for itself as a go-to for sustainable clothing staples, but the Dutch brand's expertise also extends to other items like candles and ceramics. This deliciously scented sandalwood candle, made from natural soy wax, will undoubtedly enhance the ambience of your bathroom. Stock up on a few and light them as you enjoy a relaxing bath.

The bath towels: Beddable

Get rid of those threadbare towels you've had for years and invest in something more luxurious. Beddable's ultra soft towel set has our vote. Hand-woven from extra thick Turkish cotton, they're absorbent, durable and oh-so-cosy.

The towel ladder: Menu

And now something to showcase your fresh new towels – Menu's practical yet stylish towel ladder. Its clean lines and simple design make it a minimalist and elegant addition to your bathroom, while the powder coated steel and stained ash guarantee durability.

The wall light: Industville

Lighting is one of the most important features of any room – it can easily make or break a space. If you're after something classic with a modern edge, opt for this versatile wall light from masters of industrial-inspired lighting Industville. Hang one on either side of a mirror to make a subtle statement.

The print: The Poster Club

A super simple way of livening up your bathroom is with a vibrant piece of art. This print by Ästhet, exclusively for The Poster Club, will bring a much needed pop of colour to any bare bathroom. Hang it as it is or as make a statement with a gallery wall.

The plant pot: Vitamin

The addition of greenery can make a difference to any room, including the bathroom. For a more unconventional take on a standard plant pot, look to Vitamin's quirky IV pot, which features a drip feed that not only acts as an aesthetic focal point, but offers a helpful reminder as to when it needs topping up. Ideal for the lousy plant parents among us.

You've freshened up your bathroom, now turn your attention to your home office.
