Does your bathroom only feel a tiny bit more spacious than the last time you had the ‘pleasure’ (sarcasm intended) of ‘taking care of business’ in an airplane bathroom? Instead of enjoying your shower you’re used to banging your elbows against the shower doors. Bumping into the sides of the vanity cabinet is also something you’re all too familiar with. And we’re not even talking about the lack of storage and the risky proposition of climbing over the tub rail to take a shower. This small bathroom and tub/shower combo unit is an accident waiting to happen.

Bottom-line – your small cramped bathroom is dangerous, not stylish and a place you’d rather not have to use.

Moaning about small bathroom frustrations is simple. Figuring out what you can do about it is tough.

The question becomes, how can you fix/reinvent a small bathroom to not only be functional, but fashionable? As crazy as this may sound I believe this is not only possible, but easier than you think.

In this article I’m going to dish up 11 proven ideas to fix what today you may think is un-fixable – your tiny bath and shower. Some of these changes will involve more extensive bathroom remodeling. Others are cosmetic and lower cost. Pick and choose the ideas which make sense for you, but whatever you do, don’t ‘settle’ for your current space which is only a tiny bit better than an airport bathroom (at least in the airplane you still get one free drink and a small bag of pretzels!).

5 Design Tips for a small bathroom remodel

In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s home building was about supersizing everything. McMansions with large rooms, vaulted ceilings in foyers, big living rooms and dining rooms were all the rage. The average size home in the 1950’s of 983 square feet had become bloated to 2,434 square feet by 2005.

As we get ready to celebrate the new year in 2015 trends have changed significantly. The average size of the home is now decreasing (this can be seen in the popularity of the book The Not So Big Home by Sarah Susanka). Features which have contributed to homes becoming smaller include tighter access to financing, improved design, and the desire for more green and sustainable spaces.

As homes are shrinking bathrooms are getting smaller as well – but this is not to imply style and function are becoming victims of this down-sizing process – quite the contrary actually. Learn below 5 fun and intriguing design tips to make a smaller bathroom more stylish and better performing!
