Full bathroom ideas for small spaces

Small Space Savvy

In a small windowless space, replace solid doors with glass ones to let in extra light. This master bathroom keeps the space simple with off-white walls but splurges on river rock floors with radiant heat for added coziness.

Pretty Storage Ideas

Make the most of a small bathroom with creative storage ideas. Repurpose an accordion coat hanger to organize appliances, cosmetic bags, and jewelry. If you have a pedestal sink, add a skirt and use the extra hidden space to store cleaning supplies underneath. Even a narrow shelf under the vanity mirror can provide space for holding toiletries.

Use Bold Color in a Small Space

Wallpapering the entire room, including the ceiling, really makes a strong statement. This treatment accentuates, rather than hides, this bath's unique features. An attractive, colorful, and functional curtain replaced the fixed shower door. A matching Roman shade shares the same gathered valance. Dual shower rods―one for the liner and one for the curtain--are hidden behind the valance. The brightly painted chest of drawers, enhanced with wallpaper, provides storage and style without the expense of built-ins.

Material Comforts

This bath is a masterful mix of textures and materials, a combination of subtle colors and bold ideas. His-and-hers vanities are tiled with elegant Italian marble in a warm, copper hue, and stainless steel is tacked along the edge of the countertops for a contemporary look. Stained concrete adds an aged appearance to the floors, while mirrors make the small room live large.

Bringing Home the Spa

Celadon-colored plaster provides a soothing backdrop for this all-natural bath. The tub is a modern version of the furo, a classic Japanese soaking tub. The floor is paved with radiant-heated flagstones. 

Shower Revolution

Integrally colored plaster walls, a concrete counter in a similar hue, and a gray concrete floor with a central drain create a distinctive showering sanctuary.

Bright White

The lack of a window treatment on a small window gives this bathroom an open, airy feel.

Shell Game

Framed shell prints decorate a wall in this powder room.

Luxurious Bath

In this expansive master bath, soft blue walls blend with the pale browns of the marble floor and countertops. A shower is outfitted with handheld and rain-style shower heads in a satin-nickel finish. Lever-handled fixtures dress matching lavatories and a corner-set bathtub. 

Pink Bath

This guest bath sports pink walls and a floral shower curtain. A framed mirror hangs above the sink.

Bath Reproductions

A bath features reproductions with turn-of-the-century designs.

Small Spaces

In a tiny cottage, an upstairs bath the size you'd find on a boat separates the small master bedroom from the kids' bunkroom.
