What's Your Style? Small Spaces.

Small bathrooms can still be BIG on style. How can you make your space feel bigger and maximize every inch of space?

Key features:

  • Vanity with open shelving below plus integrated organizers in doors and drawers
  • Glass shower enclosure
  • Alcove bathtub/shower combo
  • Minimalist wall-mounted faucets
  • Streamlined and/or integrated lighting
  • Frameless large mirrors
  • Recessed medicine cabinets
  • Neutral, minimalist color palette
  • Large-scale patterns
  • Repetition of finishes and materials for a cohesive look: The combination of too many materials and textures feels too busy and can make the room feel smaller than it is

Color palette:

  • Think beyond white for small bathroom colors: A crisp, clean white is a favorite bathroom color choice for its bright, clean look and ability to make a small bathroom appear larger. All-white spaces aren't your style? Small bathrooms are an excellent place to play with bolder hues and patterns that you might shy away from in larger living spaces.
  • Balance bright colors with a neutral: Choosing a bright color is a great way to liven up a small bathroom. Try applying a vivid hue, such as turquoise or coral, as an accent color on a single wall, with a vanity paint job, or through a colorful tile backsplash. Then balance the brightness with neutral color choices elsewhere.
  • Mix neutral bathroom colors: If you're worried about adding too much color in a small bathroom, applying a neutral color scheme is a safe bet. To keep the palette from looking flat or boring, play with them a little. Mix and match textures or use off-white on a ceiling or on trim, instead.

Things you WILL find:

Floating Vanity: A wall-mounted vanity appears to “float” above the ground, creating a light, streamlined look that works well in a small bathroom.

Wall hung toilet

Glass Shower Enclosure: Skip the shower curtain and use clear glass doors and panels to help open the space.

Compact vanity or pedestal sink

Ingenious storage options like:

Recessed mirrored medicine cabinet

  • Lighted mirrors – backlit mirrors are a chic way to amplify light. And, if you don’t have room for sconces, this might be the perfect solution!
  • Wall Niches: Small bathrooms demand efficiency and organization, so keep products neat and within reach with well-designed niches. You may want to measure your most frequently used products before committing to a design to ensure the finished product will work for your daily life.
  • Wall hung soap dishes, soap dispensers, and shelving

Robe hooks in lieu of towel bars if you’re short on wall space

Excellent ventilation:  A good quality exhaust fan in the bathroom is as important as any other essential feature, such as the lighting and flooring. Without proper ventilation, humidity can get trapped and damage your cabinets and other features.

Things You Won’t Find:

  • Clutter
  • Fussy Details
  • Unused space
