Help with a tiny ensuite?
Stephanie HockettJune 24, 2014
Our master bath is tiny with just a shower, toilet and porcelain sink! We are trying to figure out how to maximize the space and what updates we could make that would help make it feel a bit bigger? Any ideas are welcome!

This is literally the entire bathroom...

Space can be maximised with some simple photography. Digital printing is an excellent method to use a selected image. Usually printed on wallpapers, but as this is in the bathroom, an image can be printed on ceramic tiles.

The image attached is one you could use as inspiration. The 'ocean panels' really maximises the corner shower as you can see.

Good luck! Hope my advice has been of some help..

If you were to change the floor to something with "no grout lines" that would visually make the bathroom look larger.

Great job with the creams and whites - that also helps a great deal. The Zebra stripped towel looks out of place. White towels on the cream wall would be lovely or soft pastel color of your choosing.

The two pics below give you an idea of how much storage and unification you can achieve by replacing the pedestal sink with one mounted in cabinetry. A larger mirror would make the space seem larger as well. [houzz=

Not sure the size of this 'tiny' ensuite.

I saw a design show years ago that dealt with this problem.

One thing they did that had a huge impact: the tiny window was enlarged. Same width but almost full length. Then there was a small secret garden created outside the window. Just a bamboo fenced enclosure of about three or four foot square with a fountain in the middle.

The space seemed huge.

Can't see the pedestal being very functional for counter top space and storage. A floating vanity will still give a light look. And a larger mirror will reflect the space:
