Consider tier-on-tierTier-on-tier shutters offer all the benefits of full-height designs with an added café-style function. Being able to open the top tier and leave the bottom closed provides privacy without losing light. In this loft space, the linear form of the shutters is reflected in the lines of the heated towel rail.

Think sandy shadesThe travertine tiles of this bathroom evoke the varied and gentle colours of a beach. Using them on walls, floor and bath surround ensures that white becomes a clean highlight instead of a chilly presence.Get the same look with limestone, which comes in a variety of tones including beige.

Drop it downTo keep your windowsill utterly unobscured, try this trick if you have the space. A ledge just beneath it may be something you need to install to conceal pipework. If so, raise it to the height you require and make it deep enough to stash towels (folded nicely, of course). This way, you won’t lose a centimetre of light flooding in.

Exploit honey stoneThe trend for bathrooms tiled in large, honey- and sand-coloured stone tiles has been popular for a while, but still works. It’s largely because they’re warm, look organic and natural, and are more restful (and forgiving of dirt) than sometimes-clinical all-white. This bathroom has been tiled in a natural travertine, a limestone alternative that’s affordable and hard-wearing. Also try textured porcelain, natural limestone and beige marbles.

The serene bathroom was formerly a bedroom. ‘When it comes to the bathroom, you just want somewhere to hide away,’ says Denny, ‘somewhere lovely, elegant and simple.’ She used travertine tiles on the walls and floor to create continuity, and kept the space quite simple for an uncluttered feel. ‘I didn’t want a lot of shelving,’ she explains.Toilet and bath, Villeroy & Boch.

Accessorise all areasYou don’t have to splash out on brand-new fixtures and fittings – accessories can go a long way to smartening up any space. In the bathroom, a new white shower curtain can update an old bath, while a stack of coordinating fluffy towels, candles and decorative storage baskets will create a spa-like feel for minimal outlay.TELL US…How would you prepare your home for sale?
