Fluffy towels and robes

Invest in a new set of fluffy towels (and bathrobes if you want that little bit extra) to instantly add a touch of luxury to your bathroom. Whether you choose classic white or a bold colour, a new set of quality towels will instantly add that hotel feel to your bathroom.

TIP: Don’t be afraid to show off your new set of fluffy towels! If you have shelves or a stool, neatly folding them or rolling them up and putting them on display will add that hotel spa vibe. Or, add some good-looking hooks to your bathroom wall or door to hang them off.  


Add a boutique hotel feel to your bathroom with LED lights. LEDs are great for creating the perfect ambience and you can choose what colour lighting you want depending on your mood that day.

TIP: If LEDs are not your thing then dimmable lights are a good alternative as you can turn them down when you’re relaxing in the tub and turn them up when you need the light.

Candles and Smellies

No bathroom should be without a lovely range of candles and smellies for that opulent hotel feel. Go into any supermarket or houseware store and you’ll see whole aisles dedicated to candles and reed diffusers at affordable prices, so you’ll be able to kit your bathroom out even if you’re on a tight budget.  

Placing large round candles next to each other or candles on the bath ledge will create a surrounding of soothing light.  

For the ultimate in safety, choose ‘fake’ candles. These used to be quite hard to come by, but now there is a huge selection of realistic LED candles in all sizes and shapes to choose from.

TIP: If you have the floor space, try adding different sized hurricane lanterns placed next to each other to add charm to your bathroom.

Luxury Bathing

Some luxury bathing products are so sophisticated that they make very interesting display pieces as well as adding that touch of opulence to your bathroom.  

TIP: Display indulgent lotions and potions and hair care products neatly on bathroom shelves to recreate that premium hotel bathroom feel.

Go back to nature

Bring the great outdoors indoors to create a calm and tranquil space that you can enjoy. We’re not suggesting that you turn your bathroom into a jungle (unless you want to) but a few indoor plants placed on your windowsill is an easy and budget-friendly way to transform your bathroom into a relaxing oasis.

TIP: If you fancy being adventurous try placing plants in woven hanging baskets and suspend them from the ceiling.

Get trendy with artwork

Displaying a few pieces of artwork will add boutique hotel style to your bathroom. Photographs, prints, and paintings all work well and will turn your bathroom into an interesting and trendy place that you'll want to hang out in.

TIP: To keep your artwork in good condition avoid moisture build-up by opening windows and using the extractor fan after showing and bathing.
