As for your toiletries, you can place few of them in a basket hanging in one corner of the bathroom. While most things won’t fit in the basket plus you need a mirror as well. So rather than going for a simple mirror, you can go for a small box type closet that has a mirror on its door. This will serve the dual purpose of a mirror as well for keeping the toiletries.
Good ventilation is essential for every bathroom whether large or small. A small window will do wonders if there is an exhaust fan attached to it. For those of you who have their morning tea in the bathroom while reading the newspaper, this one is for you!
