Try an Antique
Have you ever noticed that a lot of decorators put a spindly-legged chair or side table in the bathroom? It's not just a prop for holding a pile of picturesque, perfectly folded towels; it can make the room feel larger, too. You can see under the chair's legs, which creates the illusion that it's not taking up nearly as much space as, say, a shelf; and, it works just as well. Cabinets with legs are equally effective, says Matt Plaskoff, OneWeekBath.com founder and former consultant for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
