Tips for a More Functional Bath

TIP: Innovative accessories can make even the smallest bath more functional.

For extra elbowroom in the shower, hang a curved shower rod.

TIP: Double shower curtain rings allow for easy removal of curtain and liner.

For safety and extra towel storage, hang a grab bar with attached towel bar near the tub/shower.

TIP: Use template and level to position screw holes.

TIP: Mount it with secure drywall anchors and you won’t have to find studs.

Hang pivoting paper holder for easy paper replacement.

Mount vanity lights above the mirror or on both sides for clearer make-up and shaving.

For convenience and efficient use of small spaces, add multiple robe hooks.
