There's an article in a 2004 special Woman's Day issue of Kitchens and Baths that lists 37 ways to Open Up the Bath. Ideas include: removing cabinet doors and painting the interiors a lighter color [Think about the dirt and damp that the contents will be exposed to]; replace the vanity with a pedestal sink [and lose valuable storage space]; hang double shower curtains instead of a single curtain [hmm]; use more mirrors; store extra toiletries in the linen closet [and hope they don't leak on the linens]; use a striped shower curtain; keep window treatments light; use transparent chairs, containers, and shelves; and remove protruding objects... [I need towel racks!]. Okay, some of these and the other ideas are good to help you avoid remodelling your bathroom, but think carefully. I will not have a pedestal sink in the next house; it is really important to have a cabinet with doors AND drawers!
