There's no avoiding the issue – small bathrooms can be horribly annoying. The severely limited space in tiny apartment bathrooms is often dark, narrow, and lacking any kind of storage space. In some cases, there isn't even room for a sink!
However, a lot of the small bathroom problems aren't a matter of space at all. Often, a little reworking can reveal big potential in the tiniest rooms. All it takes is a little creativity… and a lot of tiles! Check out how the designers of these eight tiny bathrooms managed to overcome the space limitations to create rooms that are both stylish AND functional. You'll be amazed…
Alcoves were built into the wall, creating much needed storage for toiletries. How clever!
Those tribal-style tiles brighten up what might otherwise be a bog-standard bathroom, while the glass sliding door and shelves keep it looking sleek and modern.
… this minuscule bathroom uses neutral marble and polished concrete to create a compact contemporary wonderland.
Your small bathroom deserves more than a catch-all colour, and it can certainly handle a vibrant pattern mash-up. Ditch the neutrals and go bold with intricate tile decals and Bauhaus-style concrete walls.
Helpful hint: Choose whatever kind of pattern you like the most – but try to find one with a light or neutral background colour, as seen here.
And look! The room looks twice the size thanks to the inclusion of a frameless wall-size mirror.
Check out that smart under-sink storage, too – very nice!
