small bathroom
sallygobleJuly 4, 2013
I have seen photos of small bathrooms with the toilet and/or sink in the shower space all as one with no separation. How do the toilet and sink fixtures hold up with that level of moisture over time? Do they have to be wiped down after each shower?

Toilets and sinks are made of materials that hold up to water. There is a drain in the floor. You wouldn't put a wood cabinet in a small bath in such a situation, but a pedestal sink would be fine.

However, if the bathroom is big enough that a wood cabinet is not near the shower spray, then it could be used. Or a wood such as teak could also be used. In the second bathroom below, you'll find not only a wood vanity but wood framed windows.

The fixtures would need to be wiped down especially if your area has hard water.
