It's a luxury because, yes, you could just pick a bog-standard frameless creation that will be perfectly functional - but equally, you could splash out on something a little more grown-up and sophisticated that will reflect as well as add elegance. An added mirror bonus? It will make your bedroom look larger.

#2 Fragrant fleurs
A vase of your favourite flowers will lift spirits, as well as adding a splash of floral luxury to your bedroom. Displayed on the bedside stand, fireplace or on your dressing table, they'll look beautiful.

If you or your partner suffer from hayfever, or you simply don't fancy refreshing wilting blooms each week, opt instead for fragranced fakes; they look very convincing and can smell incredible, too.

If you don't have time to book the services of a pro, simply use glass spray and old newspaper to get your windows squeaky clean; yes, it will take a little elbow grease, but it will so be worth it!
