Transforming your bathroom from ‘meh’ to ‘yeah!’ doesn’t have to involve an extensive renovation. With some styling know-how and intel on the latest products and trends, a ho-hum bathroom can become a source of pride. Read on as three style authorities reveal how to add flair to one of the most important rooms in your home.

1 FRESH START

Before you begin curating, get your bathroom organised. “There is nothing that distracts from a beautiful bathroom more than clutter!” says Catherine Heraghty of interior design and styling studio, The Stables. “Ensure you have sufficient storage for all of your bits and pieces that you don’t want on display … then focus on adding the styling elements.”

2 STEP AHEAD

There’s a major trend washing over bathrooms, and it’s all happening underfoot. “My favorite bathroom styling trick at the moment is using a vintage doormat as a bath mat to bring much-needed character to the space,” says interior stylist and product designer Fiona Gould. Look for worn-in Turkish and Persian rugs that match the scale of your bathroom. Runners are a perfect match for a long double vanity.
