The bathroom is the single most overlooked room in the house. However, its size and discreetness makes it the best space to let your imagination run wild, a place to try out those bold design risks that you’ve always fantasized about. The beauty of a small space like this is that you can go ALL OUT without spending too much. Below, some tips on trying the popular STEAMPUNK look in your bathroom.
