1 Cheap and cheerful
With its jaunty soap dishes, toothbrush mugs, soap dispensers and toilet-roll holders, the cheery Losjon collection of bathroom accessories from Ikea will brighten up even the dullest of bathrooms. We’re particular fans of these wall hangers, which come in an assortment of colours. They are a great way to reduce clutter in a smaller bathroom and can be attached using either screws or a self-adhesive backing.

2 Tub time
Add some fun to bath time with the Save Water sticker by Paris’s Hu2 Design. The decal is free of chlorine and plasticisers, and it’s 100 per cent recyclable. It’s also easy to remove and leaves no residue, so is ideal if you’re living in rented accommodation.

3 Scents of place
No bathroom is complete without a smattering of scented candles. We’re currently loving the Ashleigh and Burwood Escapology Moroccan Rose Candle, with its aromatic floral notes mixed with a light sprinkle of bergamot and complemented by the warm scents of sandalwood.

4 Danish delights
If the rest of your home is an homage to Scandinavian style, there’s no reason why that shouldn’t be the case in your bathroom. The Danish design brand Lene Bjerre creates simple but stunning bathroom accessories, including this tumbler, dispenser and soap dish from the Portia collection.

5 It’s a wrap
Never scrimp on bath towels – they’re the one item in your bathroom that’s worth investing in. Good towels will last longer, fare better in the wash and always be a pleasure to use. They don’t get much prettier than this beautifully muted set from Missoni Home.
