Seeing a friend’s bathroom for the first time can be quite telling. In a personal way, similar to seeing inside someone’s handbag, it helps you understand a little bit about where that person is coming from.
The problem with bathroom countertops is that they’re limited when it comes to space. So you’re forced to consolidate to your absolute necessities. Keeping this area looking nice can be a challenge. Do you sacrifice looks for functionality? Or do you keep your counters strictly practical? It’s really interesting to see what items make the cut for some people.
At any rate, this is what sits on display on my bathroom counter.
Ever since our move, my countertop has reached a somewhat happy medium between functional and attractive. Fortunately for us, our bathroom has storage behind the mirror and a decent amount of cabinet space, so we can afford to be a little more flexible. I shove my not-so-attractive face wash, face lotion, toothbrush and toothpaste away in my drawers so I don’t have to stare at them when I’m not using them.
Where are the rest of my beauty products, you may be wondering? Well, that explosion of madness is hidden away in my drawers nowhere near ready to be unveiled on this blog just yet.
