Compromising on the quality of bathroom fixtures can often lead to disastrous results and irrespective of whether you have plenty of space on offer or limited amount of room, it is important to make the best use of what is on offer.

I love that they also painted the side of the island’s countertop to seamlessly tie everything together!
