The designer set out to create perceived scale in a small space -- the open niche below the vanity serves to expand the bath area's visual footprint. Using multiple materials in similar tones gives additional depth and richness to this little bathroom.
This small laundry room has everything you need to fold, fluff and iron. Custom shelving, pretty countertops and a small utility sink work together to bring some measure of luxury to the common household chore. A stackable washer and dryer frees up valuable counter space.
For a budget bathroom update, Patti Wagner and her husband replaced the damaged green floor tiles with inexpensive hexagon-shaped white tiles in their Minneapolis home. “The white floor really makes the room look bigger,” says Wagner, a senior product designer for Target. They also maximized the small space by keeping the existing pedestal sink and large medicine cabinet. Towel hooks also are great for small bathrooms, because they don't take up much space and you can place them anywhere, she says.
The powder room’s sink features a round basin with a subtly textured shagreen design with a muddy green finish for a serious style statement. A marbleized soap dispenser and small glass vases with fresh cuttings on each side of the sink decorate the uncluttered top of the vanity.

Combination planters let you add color to even the smallest space, and succulents grow slowly enough that they won’t overtake the tight quarters. An eye-catching mix of succulents grows well together, needing the same care regime: little water, high light and a coarse, cactus-type soil mix. When you create an indoor container garden, make sure plants have similar light and water needs.
Small white tile covers this bathroom floor and continues up the wall for a texturized and cohesive design. A glass room dividing wall separates the large, open shower space. A floating sink and floating toilet fit the modern look and leave maximum space available for moving through the room.
This late 1980s kitchen is updated by painting the oak cabinets a soft warm gray, refinishing the hardwood floors and installing granite countertops, a new apron-front sink, a bridge faucet, wire pendant lights and stainless steel appliances. For a distinct look, an unconventional size of subway tile (2x8) with dark gray grout is used for the backsplash.
