Considering the number of people using the bathroom, get creative in creating and organizing every one’s space

1. Choose pieces wisely. If you want to add a wooden cabinet or shelf, get molave or teak considering the humidity level of the room. Don’t be afraid to bring in wood furniture into the bathroom. Just make sure they are the best wood for the job.
2. Add flowers or candles. Liven up your bathroom with flowers and candles. They can serve as accents, too.
3. Have a small table for drinks or reading material. If the space permits, have a small table for a cup, an ashtray, or reading material that can be kept dry.
4. Use containers and storage solutions. Keep mommy's small things in a container so as not to mix them with the rest.
5. Personalize with an accent. Personalize you water closet with an accent. It can be anything—a small statue from one of your travels, pretty candles, a water plant.
