Innovation out of necessity
Or this homeowner could’ve just mounted the toilet paper holder on the wall. Here are some really amazing bathroom updates that don’t cost a fortune.

Bath fan in shower stall
Well, let’s hope this bath fan is efficient. It’s certainly going to get its fair share of steam.
