Toilet and washbasin

Description
A washbasin, toilet, storage cabinet, shower and make-up table all fit in a relatively small space. Above the washbasin is a large mirror that works for both sitting and standing persons. The storage cabinet is next to and within reach of the toilet and contains bathroom accessories. The make-up table is a board that is attached to the wall on one side and rests on a cabinet on the other. The storage cabinet and the cabinets under the make-up table were originally a single tall cabinet.

Users comments
By dividing a tall cabinet Lotta gains access to the contents of the entire cabinet. The large mirror above the washbasin is extremely practical for the entire family.
