And if you’re a city dweller, chances are you’re in that crammed and cluttered boat right now. Lucky for you, we’ve been there (or, more accurately, are there), and we feel your claustrophobic pain and want to help. There are a number of ways to organize all those bottles and towels and tools (oh my!) and to create the illusion of more space in your WC. And here are 20 buy or DIY space savers to get you started. (Next up? Tackling that tiny kitchen!)
