Small bathroom design tips

Create a mood board of your inspirations to help narrow down your choices.

White tile bathroom with a skylight that has sun shining through it.

Bathrooms can be tricky spaces to design, especially if they are small. One of the best ways to make a statement in the small room is to choose one design element that will speak louder than everything else.

In this mood board the home décor blogger UnexpectedElegance.com chose a bold geometric patterned floor tile to define the space. Because she’s working with a small bathroom, she included skylights to add natural light and fresh air that will help the room feel bigger. Everything else on the board is subtle – white subway tile, a grey, marble-topped vanity and hardware with clean lines.

Combining natural light with tonal white décor is sure to help the space feel open and airy. But if you still crave a pop of color, add a skylight shade like in the bathroom pictured below.
