Small Bath Do's

Chances are if you have a small house you probably have a small bathroom. There are things you can do to make your bathroom feel larger. Use lots of white. Dark sinks can look great in a large bathroom, but if space is limited, go with white. Use lots of reflective and clear things. Glass shelves, large mirrors, all let light bounce around. If you have a window, let as much light in as possible. Lots of light always helps!

oooooh, I love that first one, Lulu! Gorgeous.... and that third one's ingenious in order to mesh practicality in a tiny, tiny space/ You always have the best inspiration photos....

I literally just finished scraping the popcorn ceiling (with glitter!) from my tiny, tiny bathroom. I'm 5'4" and can stand in the middle of the room and touch both sides! The first image is very close to how we are doing ours - but with greys and blues. First though, we need to deal with the floor to ceiling faux wood paneling...yep, you read that right.

I do have a small house and I just love the second picture with the dainty white vanity.

I have a very small master bath measuring 6ft by 10ft.I put all the bells and whistles that any larger bath would have and I love it.We call it a bathing experience not a "shower".Big isn't always better.If you go to Micasastyle.com on their blog they featured by small but spa-like bath.I think it can show your readers you don't have to be limited by space.

Love all three, but the second is so me. the third what a way to make space. amazing!

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Does that third one actually pull out, and close like a drawer??

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

The french provencial dresser with the 3 baskets is wonderful!

Millie said...

Perfect timing Lisa. We are just beginning to rip out our tiny 1.7m. x 3.1m. hideous excuse for a bathroom circa 1972! Complete with bizarre sloping ceiling, it is providing us with a real challenge. The ideas in this post have helped tremendously, thanks heaps.

My problem is I like both the 1st and 2nd designs. Love the first one, its so sleek so up to date. The 2nd one is so homie and pretty. Yep Linda that is a pull out drawer! Not crazy about the decor but the concept is outstanding!

Camilla @ Designalogue Blog said...

The pull out basin is genius! -Though I would be a little concerned with the practicalities & hygiene of it!

long on style said...

The second picture I remember from a magazine back in the day (meaning a few years ago). I remembered loving the alabaster lamps, the owner stated she found an old dresser and utilized it for the vanity. I have to look for my old magazine that links to the paint color, resources, etc.

captivateme said...

love the glass shelves and mirrored vanity idea--thanks for the inspiration!

Christine Oertel said...

the third one is really something. Who has designed it?

Lorrie said...

Thanks for the idea. My bathroom is 5 x 7 and I have a white on white theme. Every once in a while a bit of color will pop up...but it's white on white.
