Whether you’re stuck at home social isolating or not, it has become increasingly important to create a feeling of satisfaction whenever you’re at home.
A few months ago, you could simply visit a park or a mall to unwind and be in a pleasant place. Unfortunately, those days might not come again for a long time, so now – more than ever before – it’s important to create your own little paradise at home.
One of the most underrated spaces in any home is actually the bathroom. When it comes to bathrooms in apartments, they tend to be small and people try to keep it just as it is. This is usually out of fear that adding more items/accessories/furniture could make it feel more cramped than it actually is.
