I love our new bathroom.  Although it’s not really a bath-room, as we don’t have a tub, just a glorious, tiled shower with a rain head.

(Pictures?  Not yet.  Although the bathroom is nearly finished, we still have a couple of things that have to be fixed, and I won’t take pictures until it’s perfect.  Just take my word on this for now).

And we have surprising amounts of storage in the bathroom.  Our designer gave us, not only a Godmorgen sink and drawers

You don’t need to have a small house to have a need of a small bathroom.  Who amongst you has ever wondered if you could get a shower into the same footprint as a powder room?  Have you never thought “it would be so handy to have a full bath right there?”

Well, there are ways of doing this. Houzz has 9 tips for fitting more into less space in the bath/shower room.

My favourite is the European style Wet Room.  The whole room is the shower.  All the surfaces will need to be wiped down after your shower, but if it’s a teeny room that’s not a big deal.

When inches count a wall-mounted toilet can really save space.

We couldn’t do it because our toilet is set against an outside wall (full of insulation, etc.) And we have a regular sink, not this eensy weensy one.

But that’s another way to save some space.  Apartment Therapy has some great little sinks — handsome, too!

ATBathroomSink1This one allows you to put a powder room under the stairs — great space saver.


No room for a toilet and a sink?  That’s what you think.

ATBathroomSink3Small space solutions.  Because small is the new black. (I just made that up but will be using it mercilessly in the future).
