Obviously, there are set number of standard fixtures that you’ll find in your bathroom—you’ve got your toilet, your sink, faucets, and shower-slash-tub (if it’s not a powder room)—but when you’re not in control of what those look like (say, you’re a renter or not in any place financially to undergo a renovation), it might feel like your design destiny is bleak.

The Passover Seder is one of the most important meals that Jewish people eat all year, and there is no arguing that the symbolism and ritual associated with the dinner is far more meaningful than the décor.
