Turn your cupboard into a powder room
Do you only have one bathroom in your home and dream of a second one? Do you think that you don’t possibly have any space for a second bathroom? Well, read on because no space is too small to be used!
One of the best uses of space for an additional bathroom is a cupboard! You might be thinking that there’s no way a cupboard can become a bathroom, but I’m here to show you how. Follow the below steps and your poorly used cupboard can be turned into a much-needed powder room.
