When it comes to furnishing and decorating our homes, bathrooms don't always get the attention they deserve. Considering all the time we spend in there bathing, pampering, grooming and doing other things, it really is important to make the space more of a sanctuary and less of place where we just do our business.
But then again, it's a fine line between having a thoughtfully stocked, stylish bathroom and a bathroom that's overloaded with a ton of non-essentials like dual bidets and a heated toilet seat.
We've whittled it down to the basics, with just the right amount of accoutrements thrown in to make it functional and a little bit fabulous. We know everyone has different requirements and preferences when it comes to this very sacred space, but use this as a guide to get you started.
