vicky charles, de­sign di­rec­tor at Soho House & Co, re­veals five ways to add ex­tra luxe fac­tor

Living Etc - - DESIGN / PROJECT -

* Light fan­tas­tic. start a de­sign with the light­ing, com­bin­ing wall sconces near the mir­ror (prac­ti­cal) with a dimmable pen­dant (flat­ter­ing).

* sort the stor­age. You need more than you might think – en­sure draw­ers or cup­boards are deep enough to store folded tow­els without scrunch­ing them up. We also plan as much sur­face area as pos­si­ble.

* En­joy the view. A win­dow is a lovely lux­ury for nat­u­ral day­light and fresh air. Make sure yours opens smoothly and blinds or cur­tains draw back fully.

* The bath size mat­ters. Test drive a tub be­fore you buy – we al­ways do – to make sure you can get your shoul­ders com­fort­ably sub­merged. We love baths so much, we even have them out on the porches at soho Farm­house.

* Keep calm. colour in bath­rooms is great, but we tend to stay on the lighter side – a bath­room needs to feel calm and fresh.
