Another life-changing thing might be organizing a dedicated place for electrical items, such as hair-dryers, shavers or toothbrushes. While planning storage space, it is advised to think of outlets too. They cannot be located above or closer than 36 inches to the bathtub, but one has to be placed within 36 inches of the sink’s edge. Super practical solution is an electrical outlet inside a built-in cabinet. Also, you know that in a medicinal cabinet can be kept everything but medicines, right?
