Small Bathroom Design Ideas

    Small bathrooms can be brought in so many creative directions! Here are a few ideas:

     

    Break the Rules

    For smaller powder rooms it is completely okay to go all out and break all the rules – such as using material that might look over the top. Dark colors or bold patterns such as this graphic lattice wallpaper will add great dimension and a bit of fun to the small space!

     

    Go Big

    One advantage to a small bathroom – smaller prices. Since space is small you can get away with using higher priced materials. Such as seen below, a hand-carved marble sink with a modern metallic damask wall covering, an example of going big and not needing to empty the wallet!

     

    Design Built-In Storage

    Plan ahead ways to design storage into the bathroom to maximize space in the small area. Such as custom floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves.

     

    Up the Color

    Sometimes bold color is all you need to make a big statement. The bathroom below has no natural light, therefore the bold green gives it a fresh personality. The green intensity gets a counterbalance from the ultra-white floor.

     

    Use Glass as an Illusion

    A glass shower gives the illusion of space in a small bathroom by allowing you to see from one end of the room to the other.

     

    Small-Scale Fixtures

    Select compact, sculptural fixtures to maximize floor space.

     

    Make Organizing Fun

    Add an unexpected splash of color to the inside of your vanity using paint or just a brightly colored adhesive paper. This will make stashing stuff a little more fun!

     

    Declutter Countertops

    Stores makeup, prescription items, or any personal grooming tools out of sight. Instead, style the counter top with fresh flowers and sweet-smelling lotion or hand soap.

     

    Add Color with Accessories

    Even a minimal splash of color in small spaces adds a big dose of fun. Use a soft neutral or white color palette for the walls and fixtures to maximize light then add just the right amount of color with a shower curtain, towels, or accessories.

     

    Style the Underfoot

    Lack of square footage is a good thing when it comes to purchasing new flooring! Don’t be afraid to pick a more pricey style, such as this black, gray and white marble hexagonal tile.

     

    Try Open Shelving

    Floating shelves provide storage space for style-boosting accessories and bath necessities, while also making the room appear bigger.
