Despite being one of the smallest rooms in the house, the bathroom is one of the most important. It’s where we wash up and begin our days, get ready to go out or get settled for bed. It also stores tons of important personal items we’d be lost without, though it often takes some ingenuity to organize everything that needs to go into the bathroom in such a small space.
