I'm a firm believer in a minimalistic bathroom countertop. I keep only a soap dish and a small dish for hair elastics. Everything else is put away. Since the counter is the first thing you and your guests see, having it clear can make the whole room feel cleaner and more peaceful. If there are things you must keep here, placing them all neatly in a tray can make a big difference.
Amy is an entrepreneur, and has been a successful designer and business owner since 1996. With an architect father and interior designer mother, she's been thinking about how to make a home work all her life. As a child, she loved organizing her closet and found designing her dollhouse more appealing than playing with dolls. She went on to graduate from Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in industrial design. Due to the breadth of her design education, she’s able to assess a room as a whole and instinctively know how to make it work better. Evaluating the contents and functionality of a space is second nature to her.
