Kitting out your bathroom is the best part of the remodelling process, turning it from drab to fab – as the saying goes. Consider these 10 luxurious essentials for some trendy flair.

2. Gorgeous geometrics

Trending in all spheres of design, geometric patterns and shapes have made a well-deserved comeback. We can’t deny our love for this return and think it’s quite applicable when used in a bathroom design. Bring this trend home with WOMAG’s Carrara White Hexagon Mosaic. www.womag.co.za

3. Bold in black

Making bathroom design sexier, black is taking off and giving a simple bathroom cutting-edge appeal. From mixers to accessories, you can find a range of products in black-coloured finishes (including brushed bronze and rose gold) at Bathroom Butler. www.bathroombutler.com

5. Mirror, mirror

An essential for every bathroom, be it your powder room or your main en suite, mirrors are great design tools. From reflecting light or adding personality/décor to creating the illusion of spaciousness, mirrors offer a lot to a space. In keeping with striking geometrics, this large Geometric mirror from Copperleaf Studio is a glamourous touch that every bathroom needs. www.copperleafstudio.co.za

7. Heated matters

It’s debatable, but not for us – we love the comfort of a warm, dry towel after a hot shower… don’t you? And this is the very reason a heated towel rail is a must and should be considered when remodelling a bathroom. If space allows, the Ladder Rail from Jeeves Heated Towel Rails is definitely worth considering, adding a design-savvy touch with minimal effort. www.jeeves.co.za
