Small Bathrooms Worth Copying

Designing small spaces is always a challenge. Especially a bathroom. Since many things are fixed, (such as the sink, tub and toilet) it is more difficult to come up with designs that are unique. 

So, whenever I come across small spaces that are stylish, I take note. The trick to designing spaces like these, is choosing colors that enhance the size of the room and clever accessories to make the room shine. Take a page from one of these well designed spaces.

Gray walls and accents of white and black give this bathroom dimension and style. The black shelving and frames, contrast with the dark brown vanity and keep the room from looking flat. The small does of green from the grasses and candle add a hint of color to the monochromatic space.

The shower done completely in sea glass colored mosaic tile add a dose of color in this all white space. The paneled wall, shaped mirror and furniture like vanity add depth and interest.

When your bathroom is short on space, the right vanity can help you live larger than your square footage. These small-bathroom vanities offer big style without overtaking the room.

For those who feel subway tile is boring try pairing it with an interesting mosaic or pencil tile (or both like this space). Pull a color from the mosaic tile to paint the walls. An arched opening to the shower is a small detail that enhances the space.

Avoid bouts of claustrophobia by giving a shower an airy appeal. Here, a wainscot tile job continues to the shower and stops short to squeeze in a glass shower door. The glass enclosure allows for more admiration for a band of mosaic tile work. | Photo: Jason Varney

This farmhouse style bathroom hits all the right notes. Different types of paneling adorn the walls. The gorgeous reclaimed wood floor provides a perfect backdrop to the victorian style sink. A pair of ornate sconces dress up the space.

Like a more into rustic style? Selecting a stone tile for the shower and accented with a pebble tile set the stage for a more casual style. A rustic style vanity topped with travertine with an uneven edge and a reclaimed framed mirror and trim create the rustic feel.

If coastal style is more your cup of tea, choose accent colors that mimic the ocean. Paneled walls, light blue paint and a vintage style light fixture give it a beachy vibe. The thick wood countertop and decor that are reminiscent of the beach round out the design. 


Want a little glamour? Walls covered in wood look tile, a decorative mirror and a leggy sink create a dressed up space. The gray and yellow palette, paired with shiny chrome are the perfect combination for an elegant space.

Industrial chic is a hot trend right now. Get the look by foregoing an all glass shower door for one with a factory vibe. Reclaimed wood and a mix of metals create a one of a kind space.
