These 8 Small Bathrooms Prove Size Doesn't Matter

These petite and pretty spaces are sure to inspire a bathroom refresh.

There's no denying small bathrooms present unique challenges. From feeling cramped in a tiny shower to a lack of storage, a petite space can feel anything but luxurious. However, they also require less cleaning and offer opportunities to make every square inch count!

When it comes to elevating small bathrooms, it's all in the detail. Given the lack of square footage, opting for high-quality fittings and surfaces, as well as luxe bath products can help make a major design impact and create a special, spa-like space.

Whether you're dealing with a teensy powder room or a cosy ensuite, you're about to renovate or you simply want to swoon over some chic design, take inspiration from these eight small bathrooms that are big on style.

1. Cosy corner

This inviting space within fashion designer Ariane Leondaridis' home has been swathed in warm tones of turmeric and peach. The recessed shelf is a great space-saving design feature that offers a handy place to prop products.

2. Luxe details

Being a beauty blogger, the way skinfluencer Emma Hoareau's bathroom is styled and laid out is of the utmost importance. The space features pearlescent square tiles and gold hardware which make it feel luxe, albeit small. It’s easy to see how you could end up spending hours getting ready here.

3. Rustic charm

Stylist Natalie Walton has conceived this wabi-sabi space with exposed timber beams, ceramics, and linen. The double doors make for a charming entrance while the industrial-style pendant makes a stunning statement. Opting for a vanity like this or a floating design is a smart move in smaller bathrooms as it creates the illusion of more space.

4. Pretty in pink

Photographer Sam Riles' bathroom is the perfect example of making a small space special. It features a beautiful vanity made from Calcutta viola marble, brass tapware, and a mix of burgundy, grey, and pink terrazzo tiles.

5. Desert beauty

This organic space within a Joshua Tree Airbnb uses the same stucco for the walls, inset bath, and vanity, creating a seamless aesthetic. The bath doubles as a shower – a great space-saving option when there's limited square footage but you don't want to sacrifice a bath.

6. Mid-century marvel

Vertical tiles in a seafoam tone bring calm to this mid-century-inspired space within artist Ashleigh Holmes' wabi-sabi home. The pair of sconces perfectly match the dark walnut joinery while the gold fixtures add a touch of glam.

7. Green oasis

Got a bit of a green thumb? Take inspiration from Plant Kween's leafy oasis in Brooklyn. This indoor jungle includes monstera and devil's ivy, which he has perfectly paired with our Olive towels. It's enough to make anyone green with envy.

8. Checker charm

Cool tones prevail in this eye-catching bathroom that features deep blue tiles in a checker pattern paired with Sage bath towels. The built-in seat makes it a luxurious space to unwind at the end of the day.
