The raised platforms so shelves can do double duty: space above and below.The back of the door has pockets for hair paraphernalia and hooks for scissors. Also note: the clear tumblers so you can see at a glance what’s where. Decant, decant, decant (Particularly if you’re using open shelving). Let’s face it: not every bottle is pretty. Your favourite face wash might come in a high unattractive plastic pump pot. So decant it into something more attractive. Or when someone splashes out and…
