Small Bathroom Inspire You

Small bathroom design has to be smart bathroom design because there is possibly no other room that needs to function as well as a bathroom. After all, one isn’t required to cook or entertain, but one certainly needs to bathe!


There are certain rules to decorating a small bath, but in the right space, rules can be broken. May these inspirational small bathroom photos, along with decorating ideas and tips for small baths, help you create a bathroom that functions and looks as grand as a large one.

When I tour a home, I often hear, “Oh, we wanted a bathroom [over there, on this floor, off this bedroom, etc] but the area was just too small.” Never underestimate the power of a good floor plan. It may be to your advantage to hire a designer who knows how much space a person needs for legroom, door swing, etc, and can coordinate a fully functional bath to fit your space. Oftentimes, if you can get plumbing and wiring to it, you can fit a bath.
