As an urban dweller living with three family members and one shower, I have a personal interest in tiny bathrooms. We plan to include one as part of an addition to the back of our garage, but we're going to have to go small. No spa tubs or loungers for us; just the basics: sink, shower and toilet. If we're lucky, we will figure out a way to get a tub in there.
But just because a room is small doesn't mean it can't be functional, comfortable and stylish. Here are 12 tiny bathrooms to inspire the small-space genius in all of us.
Zero-threshold showers are very common in Mexico, and they open up a tiny space. The lack of doors or dividers demands that the floor be angled toward the drain, but also lends a roomier feeling. Check out that flip-up wooden seat against the wall — perfect for shaving.
We have this exact Caroma toilet-sink combo in our powder room. You wash your hands with the clean water that refills the tank post-flush. It saves space where a sink just isn't possible, and it's an easy way to reuse and conserve water. Plus, it quickly becomes a dinner party conversation piece.
