When you want to take your bathroom from a cluttered space into a heavenly retreat,
designers will recommend starting with swapping out the hardware and accessories. Then,
give the walls a new treatment – maybe a fresh coat of paint or jazzy wallpaper against an
accent wall. Lastly, switch out the lighting to highlight and soothe rather than reflect and
But we have a couple more ideas for small changes that can make your bathroom more luxe
and less bare, spare and yesterday too. Scroll on for inspiration!
A heated towel rack with the Midas touch
One of the quickest ways to give your bathroom the look of luxury is by installing a heated
towel rack. And so does the colour gold. Combine these two timeless tricks in a Cubic 6-bar
heated towel rack in Champagne gold and you’ve set the tone for what to do with the rest of
The luxury doesn’t stop with the look though, it provides you with hygienically dry towels with

Matte black and matching accessories
Nothing elevates the splendour of the bathroom more than a set of essential accessories in
the same profile and finish.
If you want something more modern and that will leave the Jones’ seething, opt for opulent

vanity counter will also instantly amp up the chic factor.
Last word on luxury
Clutter is the enemy of luxury. Nobody wants to see your curling iron, eye-colour palette or flu

low-lift bathroom upgrade that will immediately have a huge impact on the entire space.
