What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Forgive past mistakes. We’re all guilty of this: We get excited about the latest lotions, potions, hair gels and sprays. We bring one home and, after one or two uses, realize it isn’t for us. But it cost us a pretty penny, so we hold on to the mistake because we think one day we may feel differently about it. Time to get real. Clean out all those mistakes and toss them, give them to some friends or (if they look inviting) donate them to a shelter. The space you’ll gain in your bathroom will help you and your partner feel more comfortable there. It can even be a metaphor: If there’s space in my bathroom for you, there’s probably space in my life for you too. While you’re doing this, take a few more minutes and organize your other bathroom supplies. Place the items you use every day in the most accessible shelves and drawers. Backup products like extra shampoo, conditioner and toilet paper can go in a corner of the linen closet or in secondary bathroom cupboards. Organize these in baskets or bins by category — hair care products, infrequently used medical supplies and so on. If you need more space, you can add a few wall shelves or an over-the-toilet storage unit.
In the master bathroom, a vintage mirror hangs over a custom vanity with polished nickel fixtures. Most of the vintage pieces in the home, including the mirror, came from Irreplaceable Artifacts in Manhattan.
