Don’t ignore small spaces! A shelf is the perfect solution to storage scarcity in smaller bathrooms. Place one over the tub for towels, candles or shower gel or near the toilet for spare toilet paper and hand towels. Designer Karina Bryant of K_Souki Design Studio has a set of shelves wired for music or a TV hookup for bath time relaxation in her home, built by Imery Group.
Black and white is a great choice for a small bathroom because these colors can serve to enlarge the space. Here, Pure Interiors Design kept the black tones to a minimum by employing it solely in the shower curtain as the focal point in the room. White tiles walls, simple fixtures and a large mirror with a beveled inset complete this pristine look.
Sometimes, a storage unit can play more than one role in a space, as in this contemporary master bath designed by Alisha Hillary. “The towel caddy was installed between the vanity and the toilet primarily to stop the view straight to the toilet when walking into the bathroom,” says Hillary. “It also serves as a great spot to store hand towels or candles and other small decorative items. The small stone feature tile running up behind the caddy references back to the travertine on the floor.”
White hexagonal tile provides texture on the walls of this contemporary bathroom, while patterned black-and-white floor tile brings the space visual punch. The rich wood tone of the floating vanity helps ground the room and warm up the palette of cool neutrals.
Out of the way but not forgotten, this small white bathroom with a black and white chevron shower curtain is merry and bright. Keeping a pristine look to the approach, Pure Interiors Design enlarged the space without sacrificing its attractiveness. It's fun, playful and inviting.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, Jillian's beach inspired design continues into the bathroom. The flamingo wallpaper gives the space a vacation feel, while the white mirror and vanity and contemporary lighting gives the space the contemporary design of the rest of the house.
As this 6-foot-by-7-foot Atlanta bathroom demonstrates, sometimes bold color is all you need to make a big statement. Although this space receives no natural light, the bold Kelly green walls give it fresh personality. The ultra-white floor and wainscoting counterbalance the green's intensity.
This quaint bathroom space features mostly neutral colors except for a bright orange waste basket and a blue shower curtain. The wooden shelf under the sink with exposed pipe adds an industrial feel to the space.
