You probably won't be able (and shouldn't try) to fit all of these suggestions in one washroom, but it sure is amazing what adding a piece of furniture can do to a bathroom. It improves functionality, adds warmth to the space, and makes it feel more decorated, and more like a living space. I love it.
1. Garden stool
Any stool takes up very little space, and is therefore a great option for those of us with smaller bathrooms. I like garden stools because they won't be damaged by moisture or humidity, and are easy to clean. Use one in a large shower as a little seat or table, pulled near the tub to perch on while washing the little ones, or as a little side table for a glass of wine during a nice bubbly bath.
A chair also doesn't take up much room, but it can add a great amount of texture, warmth and pattern to a generally stark space.
3. Bar Cart
Now, we know bar carts are all the rage right now. As much as I adore a bar cart stocked full of booze, I also love them in the bathroom to hold pretty soaps, towels, apothecary jars, etc.
I'm talking a free standing vanity here people, one not attached to the walls or floor and definitely no sink on top. This is an option that requires a little more space, of course, but if you've got it, use it! It doesn't have to be a huge vanity, just a perfect little perch for your perfumes and makeup. How glamorous.
Alright, most of us won't have this kind of space, so you can always convert an antique dresser into a sink base to achieve this look. But a separate dresser in the washroom can add ample storage, mega warmth if it's wood toned, and even act as a great perch for a lamp if you so choose.
Other great ideas: a bench and a shelf or etagere.
What is your fave 'extra' furniture piece to see in a washroom!?
