Since these mirrors appear to stretch upwards, they make ceilings feel taller and bathrooms feel bigger.

Sometimes that giant storage unit is just not worth the bulk. Here, a vintage table with open shelving feels slimmer and adds an airiness to the space.

Skip the foggy glass or dark curtain, and opt for glass doors. It’ll make the shower feel like livable square footage.

You could add a bulky shower caddy, but little cubbies look so much cuter. Alcoves keep soaps and sponges within arm’s reach.

Small bathrooms unfortunately call for smaller fixtures. Instead of overwhelming your bathroom with a large sink and bulky vanity, choose a smaller, vintage-inspired sink. This piece serves its purpose while allowing extra room underneath to stow two small step stools.

Your bathroom should feel simultaneously invigorating and relaxing. Designer Justina Blakeney’s jungalow bathroom is inspired by the baths she experienced on her travels to Turkey and Morocco. The blue color choice came from a family trip to Lake Tahoe.

An oval-shaped sink looks softer and gives you more counter space than a square. And if you’re lacking in drawer space, you need every inch of counter you can get.

30 Small and Functional Bathroom Design Ideas For Cozy Homes

A small space, like this powder room, can be a fun place to try out bold colors or patterns. Here, green leafy wallpaper gives the space jungle fever and is imaginatively contrasted by the reds and yellows of the rug.

Try a bold, dark ceiling color in your small bathroom, such as the black ceiling in this room from Sarah Gibson, designer and blogger at Room for Tuesday. The dramatic shade also helps expand the height of this small bathroom by drawing the eye upwards.

Choose a small table with an open base so it doesn’t close off space. It’ll give you a spot to set magazines, flowers, or candles.

The right lighting choices in a small bathroom can maximize the space and provide the adequate light you need for your daily bathroom routine. This bathroom combines recessed lighting with a retro fixture for task lighting over the vanity.

Instead of a door on a hinge that, when open, takes up space in your small room, opt for a door on a rail that stays parallel with the wall at all times.

While vertical stripes might make you look thinner, they can make your bathroom look bigger (and more dramatic!) Copy this nautical-inspired space from HGTV Dream Home 2018.

No matter how small your bath, gutting and replacing fixtures is an expensive undertaking. Save money by updating what you can yourself. For example, give a builder-basic vanity a trendy cottage-style update by stripping the paint or stain down to the natural wood, then adding a coat of whitewash.

When it’s time to paint, make sure you have planned your color palette. Keep in mind that painting a wall an accent color takes time. Use neutral colors to make your bathroom feel calm and aesthetically pleasing.

Sometimes bold color is all you need to make a big statement. Although this space is small, the bold salmon-pink walls give it fresh personality. A simple white vanity and sleek fixtures balance the vibrant color.

From the mesmerizing floor tile to the slanted ceiling, this bathroom is nothing but first-rate design inspiration. One of designer Emily Henderson’s tactics for decorating this small bathroom (photographed by Tessa Neustadt) was to match metals, from towel bars to faucets, for a more cohesive appearance.

Hang bold, vibrant towels or robes to add color and personality.Display stylish soap dishes and accessories for a designer touch.Paint your mirror frame an accent color.

If your bathroom doesn’t have a built-in vanity, opt for a ledge right above the sink. This will hold all your daily essentials (toothpaste, soap) but won’t take up as much floor space as a big piece of furniture.

Store cotton balls and swabs in glass jars on floating shelves.Install a hamper under the sink.Minimize counter space by storing (rather than displaying) personal products.Add stackable baskets underneath cabinets and above washer/dryer units.

If you need a big tub, then make sure you’re saving space elsewhere. Incorporate built-in shelves into the wall behind the bathtub for towels and products.

Sharing a bathroom is tough, but there’s an easy way around it. A large trough sink in a kids bathroom can accommodate three kids at once, with step stools to match.

“Powder rooms are usually where I really go all out, break all the rules and use materials that might look ‘over the top’ in larger spaces,” says interior designer Melissa Miranda. In tiny powder rooms like this one, small, medium and large wallpaper patterns work well. In larger powder rooms and bathrooms, wall coverings featuring small patterns can look cluttered.

Walk-in showers are far from your only option for high-style bathing. This bathroom features a subway-tiled tub married with a barely-there glass enclosure. The use of glass keeps the full expanse of the room visible for a spacious feel.

Instead of stuffing them in large cabinets, showcase your colorful, textured towels in open shelving. This will add warmth and playful colors to your space and eliminate unwanted large furniture pieces. Other ideas:

Add elements of surprise in a small space with a buddha statue, hot pink towels, and out-of-this-world geometric tile

Fish scale tile is a hot bathroom trend and using it on a small shower accent wall is a great way to elevate your bathroom in a very subtle way. Bonus: Having less wall space to cover also means you’ll spend less on this crave-able tile. Finish off the shower with a sleek glass door to strut your shower’s new style.

Don’t be afraid of large pieces in a small bathroom. A giant mirror over a tub creates the illusion of a larger space.

Brass shower accessories, like the door handle, knobs, and even drain, add decorative elements to the bathroom, which allows the room design as a whole to feel clean and open (but not overwhelming).

An advantage of small bathrooms? Smaller prices. “Since the space is usually so small, you can get away with using higher priced materials as you need so little of them,” says interior designer Melissa Miranda. Sparkling damask wallpaper creates a stunning setting for a pair of contemporary pendant lights and golden sunburst mirror in this ultra-glam bathroom.

Yes, you can make a tub work in a small bathroom! This otherwise cramped enclosure is the perfect spot for a small soaking tub. From bright, tribal pattern flooring to towel hooks that double as fun art, this is a great example of a small bathroom that gets everything right.

Adding long, uninterrupted horizontal planks to a small bathroom is also a great way to make it seem larger than it actually is. In this small bathroom, the shiplap walls maximize horizontal space and keep the room from feeling closed in.

The lack of square footage is a good thing when it comes to purchasing new flooring. Even a pricey pick, like this black, gray and white marble hexagonal tile, won’t set your budget back too much.  

Every design element in a small bathroom should have a purpose and be functional in some way or another to create a space-saving sanctuary. Before you dive in, if you are looking for space-saving furniture ideas, be sure to check out our top products for small bathrooms.

Lighten up a small space with white trim, white patterned wallpaper, white shower tile and a sweet, traditional vanity.

We love the intricate details of elaborate tiled floors, but it’s important to keep the rest of the tiny space simple, so the room doesn’t become overwhelmed with patterns and color.

An alternative to painting is to add pops of color by showcasing colorful hand towels, bathroom tile, rugs or even robes to create your own ambiance and flair.

A yellow, footed tub framed by yellow, floral curtains create a cozy, French country-inspired bath. A wood cabinet, antique door with glass handle and a blue, distressed footstool complete the aesthetic. Design by Sarah Richardson.

Make up for a nonexistent linen closet with a strategic configuration. The mirrored medicine cabinet in a New York apartment measures two feet deep to fit towels. Shelves inside are staggered around the pipes, while a custom vanity hides laundry bins.

Even petite bathrooms can benefit from an accent wall such as this forest green wall featuring a vintage map. Instead of making this small bathroom seem smaller, the accent wall adds much-needed color to an otherwise neutral space.

Run tile from the bathroom floor straight into the shower stall. It makes the room feel larger. If you change materials, it interrupts the space.

Quirky, colorful book cover wallpaper makes a major statement in this small bathroom. Simple decor, like thin brass wall sconces, a retro mirror and white marble vanity, balance the bold paperback pattern.

Try a curtain that looks more like a drape than your average plastic shower curtain. It not only makes the room feel more sophisticated, but it also makes the shower feel like more than just space reserved for later use — it feels like a bonus room!

Floating shelves provide storage space for style-boosting accesories and bath necessities while making the room appear bigger.

Whether it’s a tiny powder room or a shower stall with barely enough room to scrub, a small bathroom can make mornings even worse than they already are. But you don’t need to move, you just need some strategic styling. We’ve got 20+ easy storage and styling solutions that’ll make you forget how small your bathroom actually is.

Functionality is key for a small bathroom. Small rooms can easily lead to unwanted clutter, so make sure you’re adding only design elements that are functional. Don’t add knick-knacks or objects that don’t serve a purpose.

A repurposed wooden ladder adds instant charm above the toilet in this farmhouse-inspired bathroom, offering a place to hang a hand towel and a basket to store extra towels and any other bathroom necessities.

While you’d never want clothes lying all over the floor even in a palatial bathroom, it’s especially important to keep things neat and tidy in a small bathroom like this one from the HGTV Dream Home 2017. The rolling wire laundry basket shown here is a great design choice that blends function and style.

Besides a bath mat, small bathrooms don’t necessarily need rugs. Take a tip from this bathroom that’s not much bigger than a corner and decorate your floor with a cheeky tile design instead. The message adds spunk without taking up space.

Create a neutral color palette to form the base theme of your bathroom.Utilize textures and patterns in neutral tones to add creativity and depth.Remember that the color white is associated with cleanliness.

Coordinating your paint colors across your entire home can really help create a cohesive look.

Up the style ante and make your small bath look larger by installing a panorama of chic, colorful wall tile.

Mirrors are useful for more than just touching up your makeup: Light bounces off the reflective surfaces and helps make rooms appear bigger. So even if you can only fit in a mini mirror (like the one on the hanging shelf in this bathroom) it makes a big difference.

Careful attention to design ensured that this already-small bathroom would not feel closed in. Wine boxes add beautiful, warm color and create easy storage. A skirt for the sink provides extra storage underneath, and the pages of an old book are taped to the wall for inexpensive and effective decoration.

Make sure every piece has a purpose. Choose mirrors with drawers or shelves if you don’t want to go for a traditional medicine cabinet.

Patterns look great in small bathrooms. Try a quirky patterned floor and see how the small square footage actually works in your favor. For another decor trick that adds interest to your bathroom without taking up space, try brass or gold fixtures instead of more common chrome.

Small bathroom color palettes don’t have be limited to whites and grays. In a small space, you can use bright, bold colors and patterns that might be overwhelming in a larger room. This small bathroom from Dabito of Old Brand New is bursting with rich colors, quirky patterns and geometric shapes.

Towel bars = the best way to save surface space. If you can get a washstand with towel bars, it’ll look even sleeker.

Small bathrooms can’t afford to be cluttered. If your bathroom doesn’t have space for large amounts of storage, the storage you do have should pull double duty as an accent piece like these sleek natural wood shelves with well-placed essentials and decor pieces.

Small bathrooms may seem like a difficult design task to take on; however, these spaces may introduce a clever design challenge to add to your plate. Creating a functional and storage-friendly bathroom may be just what your home needs.

The vanity is often the largest piece of furniture in a bathroom and therefore has a big effect on how spacious the room feels. In this small WC designed by Marian Parsons, a floating vanity takes up less physical space without compromising style.

By making the edge of your vanity soft and rounded, you’ll gain back space and you’re less likely to bang into the edge when you’re in a rush (win-win!).

It’s a well-known design truth that mirrors can create the illusion of more space. The floor-to-ceiling mirror shown here is a perfect example of this tactic. The floating marble vanity and soft, clean color scheme further complete the posh, airy look of this bathroom.

Towel racks above the tub are both convenient (no more tip-toeing around when you’re soaking wet!) and save on wall space.

No walls to hang a mirror? No problem. Just hang it in front of the window, which creates privacy with a purpose.

Under-mounted twin sinks were a sleek choice for this modern master bath, but the lack of cabinetry cut down on storage space. Oversized bins do the trick instead, with plenty of room for fluffy towels.

Any kind of enclosure or barrier in a room can divide it up and make the space feel smaller. While that might be desirable in some spaces, it’s not what you want in a small bathroom. In this ultra-modern bathroom, the shower has no enclosure at all, which lends a roomier feel.

Luxury can be found even in a small space. This bathroom has just a standard-sized tub, but the black tile, glass shower and brass accessories turn it into a retreat.

Stack floating shelves to add storage in a fashionable way.Colorful storage ladders showcase personality and are a great place to store containers.Sink skirts add flair and hide cleaning products.Wooden crates can be stacked, drilled into the wall or placed on the ground for accessible storage.

Instead of a double sink vanity, a long design could save you serious space. The sink and countertop are all one piece and it’s long enough that two people can get ready at the same time.

Natural light is too important for cramped spaces to block with a dingy shower curtain. Instead, opt for clear glass doors instead.
