1. Hang Your Towels

If you don't have the time or (or will power) to roll all of your towels, consider purchasing some chic towel rails to hang them on. This will keep your towels looking neat and tidy, just like you’d see in a high-end hotel bathroom.

Not only is this option practical, it also adds a touch of sophistication to your bathroom, especially if you choose a towel rail with a striking colour, like brushed brass gold.

Small details, like organising towels in this way, can make a big impact in creating a luxurious bathroom atmosphere. Plus, by using a dedicated towel rail, you can make the most of the available space in your bathroom, giving the impression that you're staying at a spa-retreat. 

2. Choose a Double Basin

Double basins are the epitome of practical luxury, adding a level of sophistication to any shared bathroom space. You can choose freestanding basins or a double countertop, both of which will elevate the overall look and feel of your bathroom.

From circle ceramic basins to fluted concrete basins, to stunning terrazzo basins, a double basin look is a must-have for anyone looking to create a luxurious bathroom space.

3. Make Use of Open Shelves

Open shelving is a practical and stylish addition to any bathroom, small or large. It can be used in several different places, such as beside the bathtub or in an otherwise difficult-to-use space above the toilet.

One of the benefits of open shelving is that it doesn't require a major renovation to add it to your bathroom – in fact, it can be an easy DIY job. And, even if you don't have much to put on the shelves, they can still add a feeling of luxury to your bathroom by making the most of blank spaces.

For a tidy and organised look, you can roll your towels neatly and store them on the shelves next to some minimalist pieces of greenery.  

4. Update Your Bathroom Accessories with Pops of Colour

One of the best ways to create a luxury-bathroom without a major renovation is updating your bathroom accessories with pops of colour. You might think a luxury bathroom is all about the monochrome look, but adding a touch of the right colours can create a truly luxurious vibe.

For example, updating pieces like your towel rails, toilet roll holders and robe hooks to a stunning brushed brass gold colour, and pairing it with a champagne pink concrete basin. Nothing screen luxury or turns heads quite like pairing colour with metallic brassware. 

5. Choose One Big Statement Piece

One of the most cost-effective ways to upgrade your bathroom is by investing in one big statement piece. Whether you have a large or smaller bathroom, nothing screams luxury quite like a statement basin and matching short basin mixer tap.

Putting your money and energy into the basin and vanity area can function as a great focal point and make a dramatic difference to the overall look of your bathroom. 

This is especially true if you go for stand-out basins like a terrazzo basin , or a matte black circle basin.

6. Opt for Striking Bathroom Mixers

Similar to a statement basin, your bathroom mixer can make or break the look of your luxury bathroom. You don’t want a gorgeous terrazzo basin paired with a blank piece of tapware, right? The right bathroom mixer can add a touch of beauty and class to your bathroom - whether it's the en-suite or guest bathroom.

From a brushed nickel gooseneck mixer, to a matte black square mixer or square mixer, a bathroom mixer is an inexpensive and easy way to elevate the style and functionality of your bathroom. 

7. Add a Touch of Brass

Brassware is the ultimate statement of luxury, and it’s one of those materials that’s always on-trend. A touch of copper, like an elegant brushed copper mixer, can take your bathroom style to the next level and give it an instant look of luxury.

Brushed brass gold is also seriously on-trend – basically, if you need just one simple way to add luxury to your bathroom, add pops of brass through things like your tapware, towel rails, toilet roll holders or even decorative jars and mirrors.
