Small-Space Bathrooms with Style

Small-Space Bathrooms with Style

If you’re thinking of renovating your small-space bathroom or if you’re just a little curious how others have transformed theirs, well, we’ve got you covered. We’ve seen some fabulous bathrooms on our home tours and thought we’d share a few of our favs here. Bathrooms don’t have to be big to have that spa-like feel, as these beauties with surely attest.

After a long hard day at work, your feet will love the smooth and calming texture of this river rock floor. Wow.


Modern, sophisticated and oh so peaceful, this bathroom received the star treatment. The completely renovated room boasts a vanity modeled after Billy Joel’s bathroom, marble tile and extra storage. The chi is happy here.

Sometimes the best route is to embrace your vintage home. Built with quality materials, but just in need of some TLC, this bathroom has classic style and oodles of charm.


We LOVE how this handy homeowner created a recessed ledge shelf in this 1950s bathroom. Of course he had to remove the old tile and plaster and expose the studs, but he added stylish storage and that’s a job well done!

Glass tile is expensive, but here, a little definitely goes a long way. The color pops against the rest of the white wall tile and the blue-green hues coordinate with the room’s paint and towels.


Spruce up your bathroom with a sophisticated and handsome vanity. You could even take an old dresser or cabinet and make your own unique base.


If having a rental is giving you the blues, try adding removable shelving to store towels and other bathroom accessories. Functional, decorative, and you can take it with you to your next home.


Even your powder rooms deserve a little fun. Paired with a modern sink, a modest-sized mirror, and minimal accessories, this orange tiled accent wall is a show-stopper!

  1. The river rock floor rocks! I’m planning for a bathroom repair soon and Im thinking to do the floor exactly like that.

  2. You are right, the floor indeed rocks!
    The removable shelving is an excellent idea too.
