You know, brushed and satin nickel are SO PLAYED! Nothing will scream "early 2000's" like these finishes. I roll my eyes whenever I see someone putting it in a new kitchen or bathroom. Oil-rubbed bronze is only slightly less lame and played. It is as "old-fashioned" as those "antiqued brass" finishes of the 1980's. On the other hand, polished nickel is gorgeous and its sheen and color evoke sterling silver. Polished copper is also lovely, as long as it isn't too fakely glossy looking. I look forward to these gleaming finishes becoming mainstream enough to be able to purchase it at big box store prices. Brass is a classic, and if used right, can be very attractive, as is evident in many photos featured on this Apartment Therapy website. Any metal finish, if used stupidly, will look stupid and dated.

I found a BRILLIANT solution for how to have sufficient towel drying space. I put a second shower rod up, an inch or so away from the wall, inside the shower. It gives me five linear feet of towel drying space, hidden from sight. One could hang up another at a lower level. After everyone has taken his/her bath or shower, the towels get get hung up, and they're dry by the next day.

Hi. I don't have this trash can, but I've always wanted one, and hope my friends and family chip in on one for me for a shower present.
