Small Bathroom Remodel on a budget | 14″ x 48″, Bathroom Door Mirror
Before: This bathroom is L-shaped, has a sloping ceiling over the bath and one tiny window – so getting any kind of character into the scheme, while adding storage space, was a real project.
After: This tiny room battled postage stamp size dimensions, a sloping ceiling and small window. So how did it succeed?
Build In Storage
There wasn’t much choice for the layout of this room, so the only space for storage was above the loo. Combining hidden storage with open shelving allows for both a tidy space that has an element of display – a must if you want to bring some character into a small room.

Find Adaptable Fittings
The tiny proportions of this room, exacerbated by the sloping ceiling above the bath meant that even a full-sized, fixed shower screen was out of the question. So, a folding screen that could be put flat back against the wall meant that the bath was accessible.
Create A Light Scheme
To enhance space, the scheme was basically all-white, with hints of blue in the tiles, towels, bottles and the pale blue of the wall behind the toilet and sink. A large mirror sitting above the sink also helps bounce light around the room. Good lighting is also key! See below our lighted bathroom mirror.
