Even the smallest of rooms deserve a little ornamentation. Homeowners of this cottage bath made room for a vase and other display opportunities by installing a generous chair rail atop the wainscoting.

Help the eye flow by installing a custom shelf that fits under the sink and over the toilet. You'll barely even notice the exposed plumbing underneath. (But if you do, it matches the other fixtures.)
