Small bathrooms ideas worth thinking about

Hypothetically, you may be interested in putting in a small bathroom.  Maybe you are designing a laneway home for yourself, maybe you have an attic bedroom you’d like to link to a teeny ensuite, maybe you’re trying to fit a powder room or shower into a basement corner.  I’ve told you how we solved the space problem in our laneway bath — now for some other ideas to get the most out of your restricted space.

If you just can’t say good-bye to the tub, you could try a tiny one. This one lets you keep the shower and tub combo.

This one is loaded with luxury, and can be snuck underneath a sloping ceiling.

And this one puts the bath and shower into a “wet zone” at one end of the room behind glass doors. Not as compact, but still a good solution when you need both a bath and a shower:

Another solution is to put the shower into the corner of the room, like this:

TinyShower1

The sliding doors mean it could be snugged up tight to the toilet if you have to — no space needed for your out-swinging glass doors.

Or, in this corner shower, the entire shower is put into a corner, in a nice, triangular shape:

Good use of space putting the sink beneath an eave (or even a staircase) with a sloping roof. And the floating vanity makes the whole room look bigger.

And here’s something I wish we could have put into our bathroom:

Tinytoilet1

A toilet where the tank is placed inside the wall.  It’s so clean and contemporary looking, and of course doesn’t take up as much interior space.  But you have to place the tank space within an interior wall, and we just couldn’t make it work.

Of course a tiny sink can also save you precious inches.

Even IKEA sells a tiny sink.

This Tiny-House architect installed a stylish sink in her shower room. the whole home is just 196 square feet, and the IKEA mirror on the retractable arm is their only mirror.

Keep it sleek, clean, and simple.  And any bath can look larger.

    I love reading your blog and followed the building of your new home. We lived in a motorhome for 14 years and had storage under our bed, it’s amazing what you can get in there! I even carried my serger and sewing machine with me. I do have a question though: where did you put the kitty litter box? Sharon paisleysplace99@gmail.com

    • Sharon, that’s where I put my sewing machine, too! The litter box was definitely a problem, we have two cats and two litter boxes. One box goes in the storage space under the stairs, during the day we leave the door from the bedroom open for the boys. The other is tucked at one end of the studio. But we have also looked into getting benches with the litter box hidden inside.
