Borrowing Ideas From A Well-Designed Small Bathroom

I was on the hunt for ideas for an upcoming remodel of the small guest bathroom in our home when I found this picture at Houzz.com. Two things here jumped out at me:

One primary objective of my remodeling my tiny bathroom will be to maintain what storage we have, a large part of which can be found in a mirrored medicine cabinet mounted above the sink.

I think the hinged mirror and stylish frame in the image above is perfect. It looks like a straightforward woodworking project, and I really love the way it protrudes from the wall a bit. That extra depth adds storage in the cabinet, brings the mirror a little closer to the user, and creates an element of dimension and interest on the wall. I may build mine wider and add double−doors.

The thing with small spaces is that lighter colors make them look bigger and darker colors make them look smaller. Βut all−white can be too much.

I like the way this bathroom uses soft white subway tile about two−thirds up the wall and all the way to the ceiling in the shower. Installing 1x4 wood trim above the wall tile instead of a tile cap is also a nice touch. Then, to offset the white tile but still keep the room bright and airy, light blue paint is applied to the ceiling as well as the upper portion of the walls. Finish it all off with great−looking hardware and fixtures, and you've got a small bathroom that looks like a space I would want to be in.
