Powder Room Pizazz A small bath is a great place to experiment with bold colors, but be careful to find the right balance by not overdoing it with too many accessories. From: Brian Patrick Flynn Free Up Floor Space Choose a pedestal sink to add more floor space. These sinks are perfect for small half baths and powder rooms where a desire for space prevails over storage requirements. Climb the Walls The key to getting the most out of your small bath is to embrace vertical space. Adding open shelving is a great way to improve storage, and a few baskets or decorative boxes are great for storing extra necessities. Add-On Storage Are you missing a medicine cabinet and needing a place to store all of your bathroom amenities? Consider adding a cabinet above the toilet or on any free wall for the perfect accessory to contain and conceal. Venture Outside If you find that your powder room is simply too small to work with, consider utilizing the area directly outside the door. Add a bookshelf or armoire to store towels, extra toothpaste and whatever else you may find that you need. Everything Right For a small bath, this room has plenty of storage and exceptional lighting. Built-in shelves make a huge difference, as they are both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Basin legs keep the room from looking too busy, while the natural light and white walls brighten the entire space. Look Down One of the most overlooked areas of the bathroom is understandably below the counter. But what’s stopping you from adding an extra shelf or two to store makeup, hair products or extra toilet tissue? Suit Your Storage Needs When choosing what type of cabinetry will work in your half bath, consider everything you will need to contain. Wash cloths, hand towels and extra guest supplies all find a home in this hardworking cupboard. Clutter Control Do you love knickknacks? Although they are fun and add personality to any space, too many baubles can overpower a small room. Corral your favorite accessories with a vanity tray for a sweet display that is under control. Trick of the Eye In this bathroom, the subway tile was installed vertically rather than horizontally. This small change draws the eye upward, making the ceiling appear higher. Sleek Design Glass shelves, a wall-mounted faucet and clean lines all come together in this small bath for a sleek look, maximizing storage while also minimizing unnecessary design distractions. Quality Investment One great aspect of small bathrooms is the fact that a smaller room requires fewer furnishings. For this reason, half baths and powder rooms are the perfect places to splurge on high-end pieces, like the copper vessel sink featured here. Slide Aside Pocket doors and barn doors are great options for small bathrooms, particularly those that open into a hallway or other narrow space. Paint the room a bright color for a fun, surprising look. Mirror, Mirror Mirrors are always a great way to add depth to a room, but a mirrored wall can actually double visual space. Classic Storage Basin and pedestal sinks are great options for visually expanding your space, but a traditional sink with included storage is often essential. Keep a light-colored counter clutter free in order to keep a larger cabinet from overwhelming the small space. Float On To get a look that feels both light and delicate, try a floating basin and vanity. Extra space underneath is ideal for a vanity stool or extra storage baskets. Appliance Science The easiest way to make a small bathroom feel even smaller is by filling it with regular-sized appliances. Opt for smaller appliances for a room that feels just right.

Another common size you can find in small bathrooms is 6’ x 6’. Although this square floor plan meets the minimum requirement of a full bathroom, I’d recommend using it as a third-quarter bathroom. Here are a few reasons. A bathtub will take up too much space in your tiny bathroom, not to mention its bulky look will make your bathroom feel even more cramped. On the contrary, a third-quarter bathroom only comes with a sink, toilet and shower, helping declutter your tiny space.

A full bathroom usually requires a minimum of 36 to 40 square feet. A 5’ x 8’ is the most common dimensions of a guest bathroom or a master bathroom in a small house. If you happen to have this standard-sized small bathroom, there are two different layouts you can consider. Based on your bathing habits, you can either go with a modest tub-shower combo or opt for a fancy shower with multiple shower heads. No matter what you choose, you should be able to towel off comfortably without hitting your door or toilet.

Having a separate tub and shower in a small bathroom sounds like an impossible dream. However, like I mentioned before, with a well-planed layout, nothing is impossible. Of course, to fit both fixtures into your bathroom and leave enough space to get in/out of your tub and shower, the ideal size of your bathroom should be no less than 45 square feet. As you can see from this 5’ x 9’ bathroom plan, there is little room left for dressing and undressing, even if you already use a space-saving corner shower.
