What I have discovered, on my bathroom renovation journey is whether you're creating a shared family space, or a dream ensuite, this room requires detailed planning. Here's some accessory inspiration to add the finishing touches.

Top row: Dome candle in French Verbena $49 from Un Deux Trois. Iron shelf table, $380, from Indie Home Collective. Tivoli velour face cloth and towels, $7 from Citta Design. Norm wall mirror in white, $499 from Let Liv. Truva charcoal and natural bath mat, $70 from Indie Home Collective.

Second row: Marble accessories, $17 from Citta Design. Zakkai concrete tray in natural $39 from Let Liv. Aura Kolmio bath mat, $52, from Smith and Caughey's. Banksia & begamot botanic jar candle, $45 from Ecoya. Norm floor mirror in white from Let Liv.

Top tips: From applying makeup, to a long luxurious bath, find some clever storage, for the plethora of products you will accumulate. From baskets to built-in cupboards, and marble trays, you need more than one option.

There are loads of easy ways to transform a tired, rundown bathroom into an elegant space. Start with white paint, and add colour in patterned tiles, towels, a statement mirror or vintage drawers. 

Put your makeup and brushes in white canisters or beautiful glass containers, and invest in marble trays to hold fragrance and candles. It’s an easy, affordable change that makes a stylish impact.
