The last post was about a basement project of a 3200 sq. ft home, where space was definitely NOT an issue. This post is about a one week bathroom reno in which we had the opposite problem. The bathroom itself was only about 36 sq. ft.- almost half of which was taken up by a tub. The size itself was a challenge because it had to be fully functional for a growing family of 4 (it is the only bathroom on the floor of the bungalow). In addition, it was dated and lacked the fresh design the client wanted.

Dated & cramped!
(Above) View of the hexagon tile floors from The Tile Store. I like using smaller mosaic tiles in small bathrooms because it adds character and texture. The space wont end up feeling too busy since it's so small. You can really play around with colour and texture in small spaces in ways you couldnt in large bathrooms.
(Above): The client was given the brown accent tiles for free, so we incorporated it into the design. I chose a white matte 4x16" tile, which we did in a stacked pattern as the backdrop. The shower curtain, which incorporated shades of yellow, grey and brown is from West Elm. The shower kit with a rainfall showerhead and hand shower spray is from Tubs.
