When moving to a new home or apartment, decorating the bathroom is typically not a top priority, however it should be since it is the room most frequently seen by house guests. Given the small size of most bathrooms, the investment of time and money is limited yet can make a huge impression on your guests with an inviting atmosphere that showcases your personal sense of style and décor preferences. While large chains such as The Container Store, Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware are obvious choices to shop for bathroom décor and accessories, the five specialty shops below have the ability to meet all your needs while showcasing one-of-a-kind items and supporting the small business owners of Atlanta.
Canton Street Antique Market
970 Canton St.
Roswell, GA 30075
