Sink-In-A-Drawer Is Space-Saving Optical Illusion A sink-in-a-drawer is a great idea, right up to the point when you realize what a bad idea it is. Sure, you know, makeshift loft studio in lower Manhattan, no room for toilet and sink in the bathroom—why not put it in a drawer, and slide it away when you're destined for the throne? But by now you already know the catch: Unless you have a nice little space-time fabric rip, you're going to be taking up floor space in the room adjacent to the bathroom, maybe a kitchen or a closet where small amounts of room are more cherished. Sure, some of you have unused dumbwaiter shafts that would be perfecto , but for the rest of us, the idea is just dumb. [Better Homes and Gardens via Apartment Therapy ]
