3. Believe it or not, this is a rental renovation.

"This is how @myprettyrental worked around the “can’t be moved sink” rental bathroom situation. They built the IKEA LILLÅNGEN unit around the sinks.

[...] The countertop is cut only far enough to make it fit, but so you cannot see into the closet."

WOW!

You get really creative with it, of course. This mirror-in-a-mirror illusion was created with a picture frame and some LED lights. The frame hangs from the top of the mirror and hides the cords!

This sink wasn't much to look at before, but it sure turned into magic after. It was done with a Hemnes and Godmorgon vanity units to accommodate the plumbing and to add drawers!

7. Mirrors can get crazy expensive.

Especially if you need them cut to a very custom size, like the angle in this bathroom! Instead, Ikea mirrors were used to create a tiled effect that works just as well.

Sure, it holds the bathroom essentials. But under that piece of cloth is a whole litter box! Now, why didn't I think of that for my cat? It's so much easier to clean a bathroom than any other room!

It really was this simple: "I assembled the Godmorgon vanities, then built a simple cabinet carcass and countertop around them out of bamboo plywood. I simply used screws to attach the sides of the Godmorgon vanities to one another, and to the sides of the bamboo carcass."
