Do you remember your first shopping list after moving into your flat or house? We do. The length of our list was long, but it wasn't filled with items we really wanted. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Our trolley was packed with cleaning, laundry, storage, kitchenware and bathroom essentials that are crucial to our every day lives.
From dustpans and brushes to toilet holders, the vast amount of these home basics are plastic, generic and eyesores that live in cupboards and corners.
But we've discovered a new breed of these household essentials that are beautiful, stylish and above all complement the character of our living spaces, such as vintage toilet roll holders, scenic shower curtains and quirky doormats.
Take a look at our selection of the very best goods on offer. There's something in here for every home and budget.
