With bathtub .
If you do not want to do without the bathtub, this is an example of how in a very small bathroom you can have one and with a lot of style.
Measure well, distribute better and enjoy a bathtub in your bathroom if that is what you really want.
Very current .
The decorative composition of the tiles is the one that takes center stage in this other small bathroom, turning it into one with good taste.
The green tiles with that vintage pattern, the wood suspended cabinet and the gold accents give it a look that many of the most luxurious bathrooms I have seen would love. You can see the before and after of this bath on the Old Brand New blog .
Warm and welcoming .
Wood is a material that previously seems to have been prohibited in bathrooms, but now thanks to the new treatments that this material is subjected to, we can completely cover the bathroom if we want with it.
If you are looking for a warm and cozy bathroom, you need to introduce wood into it.
Add a special detail.
Photography and design Estibaliz Martín
Find the right furniture and the perfect tiles, and then add a special detail that stands out, such as a raw stone sink to gain style and personality in the bathroom no matter how small.
If you don’t want to do it with the sink, you can do it with the countertop. Choosing a striking one that presides over the bathroom decoration, like this one made of raw natural wood that we see above.
Practical and bright .
A perfect example of how to distribute and take advantage of a small bathroom that does not lack anything for our toilet, without reloading the space. The black metal and glass paneled bath screen adds style to this small bathroom.
Put the mirror on the furniture or counter .
Design and photography Just a Touch of Gray
It is a way of providing a very attractive decorative point to the bathroom. It may even be better for you, since if the mirror is large and the ceiling is small, you cannot hang it on the wall.
Optimizing the space .
Photography @ apto704
By choosing wisely the different elements that make up the bathroom, such as the toilet, the sink, the cabinets, the shower or shower cabin, in an optimal but appropriate size for the dimensions of a small bathroom, we will optimize the available space.
Neutral and clear .
With the right elements and appropriate colors to create a clean and uncluttered space.
Tip : In small bathrooms avoid overloading the space and try to keep order. A messy bathroom whether large or small will always seem smaller because of its chaos.
Look at this one above these lines. It is a very ordinary bathroom, but it is clean and uncluttered, all in white with red accents. Flirtatious and pretty. It doesn’t take much more.
Elegant marble and gold.
Design and photography Love Tear Sand Teepees
The sturdy elegant marble fits wonderfully into small spaces, turning them into classy bathrooms.
If you add golden accents to the marble, which you can easily include in faucets, towel racks and other accessories, you will achieve a sophisticated aesthetic.
The marble in white tones better than in dark ones so that the small bathroom is more luminous.
No marble but elegant .
Decor Aid project
There is no reason to resort to marble if you do not want, even if you are looking for an elegant bathroom. There are sophisticated ceramics that can get a very elegant finish as we see in the small bathroom above these lines.
All covered with wood .

It is not a solution that is usually seen a lot in Spain at least. But it is a good idea to give the bathroom warmth, even if the wood is painted white.
Create visual continuity.
If you eliminate all architectural barriers and choose the shower screen without profiles, you will create visual continuity in the bathroom, and it will appear larger and clearer.
Modern white .
Design and photography Nathalie Verbeeck
All in white, with shades of black to break up the dominant monotony of white and add contrast. This bathroom is a good example to see how the correct tiles work for small bathrooms.
If you find the whole bathroom too white cold, in addition to the black accents to achieve contrast and elegance, add some vegetable fiber accessories such as baskets, baskets and also some wood, and you will give warmth to the bathroom.
White and bright .
Design and photography Meinfeinesheim
A great combination for a small bathroom: white.
Whether in ceramic or paint, white is the color that reflects the highest percentage of light, so that as soon as it receives it, the bathroom will become a more luminous space.
If it seems too bland, you can add decoration on the floor, leaving the walls free to project the maximum light.
With a dramatic touch, all in black .
Photography and Design Dear Lillie
It is not the first recommendation I would give you to paint a small bathroom, far from it, but it must be recognized that black is beautiful and elegant even in small spaces.
Elegant green and gold.
It will not be the first small bathroom that we see like this in this article.
And that is so because green and gold details are one of the couples of the moment.
You just have to look at how well they look together in the bathroom above these lines.
Warm with adequate furniture.

Simple, comfortable and bright. A modern bathroom.
The winning palette in white and wood has been used, using a small suspended furniture, so as not to saturate the space, and as you can see, the bathroom is the most charming and modern.

Backlit mirrors are another way to achieve spot lighting in a bathroom, as well as giving it a very modern touch.
You have them available in a round format or in other geometric shapes to find the one that suits your bathroom and your tastes.
Play with the tiles.
Design and photography Chezdhillon
The tiles are versatile because they come in a wide range of finishes, but to those finishes, we must also add the placement of the tile itself, which multiplies the decorative options.
In the small bathroom that we see above these lines, wide herringbone tiles have been placed, giving a modern pattern to the entire bathroom.
Explore the different options in terms of tile placement to give your bathroom a certain style.
Chic, with pink details.
Design and photography Jaccikelly
Everything in white except the hexagonal geometric tile floor, a bathroom screen without profiles to avoid saturating the space and charming touches of pink to give the bathroom personality.
Create an accent wall.

Create an accent wall, the main one, where the bathroom cabinet is located to guide the eye to it and hide the size of the bathroom.
The rest in white to gain light and amplitude.
Put the spotlight on the ground.
Photography and project by Petite Harmonie
If you put the spotlight on the floor with a nice pavement, you will guide the eye to the floor, making the bathroom not seem so small.
It is an effective way to disguise your size.
With details that make a difference.
Project Ar Home
The shower enclosures or bath with matte black perfilería are currently a whole decorative trend.
Its more sophisticated and elegant finish gives bathrooms a subtle touch of design that can make a difference.
Modern black and white .
There are many environments that can be achieved with the black and white couple: elegant, sophisticated or casual, like the one we see above these lines.
If you also add accents in gold or gold you will enhance this effect.

Take a look at all the details in this small bathroom. It has no waste.
A mini washbasin, but with a white design with a black tap under the window.
And where the sink is supposed to go, on the large wall, it has been chosen to put a freestanding bathtub, and above it in a round mirror with a black frame.
And everything to match, in black and white.
A wonderful bathroom.
Modern little checkerboard .
Photography and Design Little Miss Party Planner
Combine tiles and wood to give the bathroom texture and contrast. Even if it is in white, the resulting contrast will fill the bathroom with style.
Naturally, it must be done with grace and with the correct finishes, not everything goes.
Sophisticated black and white .
As I said before, there are many ways to add black and white to a space. The one we see above this paragraph is elegant and sophisticated, but with a hint of warmth, not as cold as other such minimalist bathrooms.
Sumptuous coral .
Design and photography Artem Tafy
Coral is one of the most elegant and bold colors out there. If you like this color, here you can see colors that combine with the coral color to combine it properly.
Regarding the spectacular bathroom, the walls have been left smooth to be painted in a strong coral, and a white tile grid with the black joint for the floor and one wall.
Traditional warmth .

Everything in white, and then you put color accents in textiles and so on, creating a very interesting palette, and easy to apply, don’t you think?
Vintage industrial cut with a touch of pink.
Design and photography Roses and Rolltops
This is a very personal option, but you will not deny me that the bathroom cabinet in pink with the vast and beautiful finishes of the industrial and vintage design does not create a contrast of the most current.
Following in the line that we have been seeing in black and white, another detail that you can add in black is the countertop.
Neat and clear .

Keeping everything in order is essential for comfort in the bathroom.
Relaxing and delicate .

There are colors that work wonderfully together. An example is grayish earth tones and pastel blues, as we see in the bathroom above.
In pink and black .
Design and photography Inside Her Home
Another combination of colors that you can adopt for your bathroom is pink and black, also very modern and sophisticated.
This pretty pink bathroom shows off its walls in a serene and contemporary powdery tone, with black details, such as the faucets and the mirror frame, and the front of the washbasin has been covered with Moroccan zellige in white. Quite a success.
Taking advantage of the space .
Infarrantly Creative Photography
If the architecture and floor plan of the bathroom is irregular, each hole will have to be cleverly exploited.
Luckily today finding toilets, sinks, furniture and other items for the bathroom in a multitude of sizes is not a problem.
Keep it simple and add plants .
Design and photography Sugar and Charm
If you keep the bathroom with a simple and collected design, no matter how small it is, it will look good. To add a very inexpensive decorative touch that always looks good in any space, use plants. You don’t need more.
Minimalist countertops .
Design and photography The Merry Thought
If you already have enough storage space, you can choose to install a minimalist countertop, in the material you want, without a cupboard below, creating an unobstructed and simple view that is always appreciated in small bathrooms.
With wallpaper .
Design and photography With Kendra
Add a beautiful wallpaper that adds style and character to the whole space. If all the walls seem excessive, cover only the one with the mirror, the main one, and the rest in plain white, which you already have enough color with the paper.
Design and photography Dear Lillie Studio
Or, if you don’t mind, you can perfectly cover all the walls, from floor to ceiling with wallpaper.

If the bathroom has good natural lighting, the better. Maybe you can take more risks with a wallpaper.
Add accents of color .

Forget about size and think about its decoration. Add a nice pink wallpaper with gold accents and warm wood and you will have a very chic and modern bathroom. Isn’t this bathroom the best for you? It seems most joyful to me.
In neutral tones .
Photography Charlotte Duck Worth
Unlike the previous bathroom, full of color, you can also opt for a more neutral palette, which is always more serene and recharges the bathroom less.
To give it personality, use different textures, finishes and materials, such as paint, tile, wood, ceramic, metal, etc.
Warm and welcoming .
Design and photography Prosto W Szarosci
If you are looking for a warm and cozy feeling when you enter the bathroom, add wood, whether on the floor, in the form of a platform, imitation of wood, on the countertop, accessories or even on the walls, as we have already seen.
What do you think of these small bathrooms? As you can see, regardless of their size you can get a great use out of them.
It takes a bit more ingenuity, but it’s worth it. If you want to play it safe
