NY Good Questions: How To Separate the Kitchen From the Bathroom?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

The bathtub in my new apartment is right next to the kitchen sink.

While bubble-bathing/cooking conversation with my sweetheart sounds enticing, the logistics of the space are a little confounding.

The previous tenant installed an ugly bathroom vanity over the kitchen sink (which is the only sink in the apartment), and on the limited shelving stored toothbrushes alongside spices.

I want towels and toiletries to live in convenient places, and other bathroom items available for use (e.g. a bath mat) without making the kitchen and dining area feel like a bathroom.

Any ideas? I'm out of my element here! Thanks! Kelly
