We've got six people in this apartment and one tiny bathroom. A bathroom that has NO counterspace. The sink has just enough space to put a soap dispenser and that is IT. So, I wanted to keep it as clean looking and simple as possible. I've got a soap dispenser and a bottle of lotion that we keep out. Even though that doesn't sound like much, it looked too busy so I decided to stream line the look with these. I really liked the flat shape of them.
