Fabulous Furniture

Most people will not think beyond a vanity counter in the bathroom and maybe some storage for bathroom essentials, but it is after all a room! A piece of furniture like an upholstered chair is a luxurious addition which can be a useful as well as stylish update for your bathroom. You can use it when completing your daily beauty ritual and it looks luxuriously indulgent when not in use.

Folding Shower Seat

This is one of those perfect additions that make you wonder why you didn't think of it before. If you use your shower to scrub your feet, hopping from one to the other is uncomfortable not to mention dangerous. Take a leisurely seated shower even if you have a handkerchief sized bathroom as a folding shower seat takes up no dedicated space, when not in use it folds up flat against the wall. A shower seat is also a great option for kids and the elderly, to prevent accidents from slipping in a wet shower. A shower seat is also a convenience during an illness when you may find it difficult to stand.
