Design ideas for very small bathrooms from Saul St Ledger

Add a Trough Sink

Large families understand that twin sinks come in handy. Just envision using this workhorse right before bedtime. The large trough sink in a boys' toilet can adapt three children at the same time, with step stools to coincide.


Try a Trendy Oval Sink

In a Lake Martin, Alabama, lake house toilet designed by Bill Ingram, an oval- shaped sink by Toto is softer — more like a bowl — and gives you more counter space than a square.


Never Block Precious Windows

Natural light is too important for cramped spaces to obstruct with a shower curtain that is dingy. Instead, choose clear glass doors (and a trusty lock in your door)


Stash Bottles in Niches

You can add a bulky shower caddy, but small cubbies seem so much more adorable. In Justina Blakeney's "Jungalow," a trio of alcoves keep soaps and sponges within arm's reach.


Try to Curve the Corners

We're not advocating for cutting corners, only arch them. By making the edge of your dressing table softer and rounded, like designer Frank Hodge did here, you will gain back space and also you're not as likely to slam into the edge when you're in a rush (win-win!).

Don't Underestimate a Well-Placed Ledge

If your bathroom doesn't have a built in dressing table, elect for a knowledgeable ledge right above the sink. This will hold all your daily essentials (toothpaste, soap) but won't take up as much floor space as a large piece of furniture.


Continue Floor Tile Into the Shower

In a Nyc toilet, zig-zag tile ran into the shower stall. "It makes the room feel larger," she says. "If I'd changed materials, it'd have interrupted the space."

Angle It

Not everything has to line up flush. While clutter can hide behind the cloth skirt, a corner sink optimizes every inch.

Know Where to Save on Space

If you'll need a big bathtub (it's the only way you can unwind) then be sure you're saving space elsewhere. Here, designer Amanda Reilly incorporated built in ledges into the wall supporting the tub for merchandises and towels.


The More Mirrors the Better

It turns out mirrors are useful for more than merely touching up your make-up: Light bounces off the reflective surfaces and helps make rooms seem larger. So even in the event you can only fit in a miniature mirror (such as the one on the hanging shelf in this toilet) it makes a huge difference.
