Types of Bathroom Decorations

Most bathroom decor is pretty self-explanatory, but what is an etagere? How do you pronounce it, for that matter? And what exactly do you call those free-standing shelves that fit so neatly over the toilet tank? Learning what to call the items you're searching for will make decorating your bathroom a breeze. Putting a name to a product you've always wanted—or even finding out the actual use of an essential you never knew you needed—will aid in your decorating journey, whether you're starting from scratch or finishing off a remodel.
