A scented candle is a must in any bathroom, and we love the simplicity of this piece from Typo, which combines a dark blue metal container with a pale-wood top. The mango and guava scent also gets a big thumbs up.

Storage is essential in preventing any bathroom from becoming a cluttered mess – and the more unassuming your storage solutions, the better. We like these grey baskets by Overbeck and Friends. They’re actually intended for children’s toys, which means they are sturdy enough to handle some serious wear and tear.
