How to Build a DIY Bathroom Floating Shelf

Many people forget to include easy-to-access storage space in their bathroom design, and out of necessity, bathroom shelves are added as an afterthought.

To fix this problem, I created a step-by-step tutorial on how to build a simple DIY Bathroom Floating Shelf for your bathroom. You can buy bathroom shelves, of course.

People say that the kitchen is the room where we spend most of our time at home, but I disagree. For me, the living room is really the ‘home’ place where I get to relax after work every afternoon, I get to watch the latest football game, read a book, catch up with my family or have a few guests over. This is why living room decoration is quite important, much more so than that of the kitchen, in my opinion. The room should be comfortable so when you’re decorating – or maybe re-decorating the place, you need to keep this aspect in mind. It is very easy to uplift the appearance of the room without spending too much money on room decor. For example you can easily add a few pillows to your coach or love sofa.

This will keep the room more in contact nature and will make people – even your guests – feel more at home…
