A utility cart in your bathroom, especially if it’s small, may be ideal. It’s a very practical accessory in which you can place toilet paper, towels, or even beauty products. Of course, it’s important to make sure that it’s always tidy. For this, you can put little boxes or baskets in the compartments.

If you use it for towels or other textiles, you must make sure they match the rest of the decoration. In other words, you should create a color palette so that the result is harmonious.

The last touch? Include a plant to give it a natural touch. Feng shui recommends adding plants or any other element of nature to your bathroom.

Another super practical use is to put all the cleaning products in it. This way, you’ll always have them on hand to take them to any room in your house. You’ll save time and space.
