Alternate End Table

An upcycled end table is a smart solution for supporting a sink in a small space. If you choose one with a built-in magazine shelf, you can stack bath linens underneath. Here, the faucet is wall-mounted and spills into a Kohler Conical Bell vessel sink.

Light + Bright

This small bathroom has a hip modern feel thanks to light-colored tiles on the floor and wall and a metallic mirror to keep the room light and bright.

Graphic Black And White Wallpapered Powder Room

Graphic black and white wallpaper makes a big statement in this small powder room. A simple porcelain sink and slim mirror keep don't compete with the bold wallpaper, so as not to overwhelm the space.

Minimalist Bathroom

Keep bathroom decor minimal for easier cleaning. A simple flower arrangement or inexpensive moss arrangement, guest towels and guest soaps make this bathroom by designer Jonathan Savage a study in elegant simplicity.

Wallpaper Trick

Designer Jonathan Savage demonstrated a no-cost but high-impact touch in a bathroom by wallpapering the light switch in the same paper he used for the bathroom.

Powder Room Decor

Flowers and a ribbon-festooned ceramic dog lend a subtle holiday flair to this powder room.

Contemporary Floating Vanity in Magenta Bathroom

A funky, carrot-inspired art piece stands beside the small floating vanity in this magenta bathroom. A large mirror reflects the bathroom's patterned accent wall, making it the focal point of the space.

Round Mirror in Powder Room

This wallpaper completely transformed a small boring bath into an intimate space. The mirror was a play on the gold branches found in the wallpaper.

Glam Powder Room with Charcoal Wallpaper

An oversized, sculptural mirror gives this powder room dimension beyond its small footprint. Textured wallpaper in a rich, dark gray lends the space a sophisticated air, while a petite chandelier adds sparkle.

Airy Space

This small but comfortable guest bath is crisp and modern. All the fixtures and finishes have a slim, light profile to keep the space airy and comfortable

Wallpaper Counts

Make a bold statement in a small space with wallpaper. If you’re not sure about wallpaper, a small bathroom is a great place to try it out. 

Cute Storage

When faced with a tight bathroom, designers have to get creative when planning storage, as with these storage boxes hung from the wall as a space-saving device. 

Contempo Cool

Sometimes, a storage unit can play more than one role in a space, as in this contemporary master bath designed by Alisha Hillary featuring a multi-purpose towel caddy and storage space.
