Get the Look: Classic Small Bathroom

Just because you have a small bathroom it doesn’t mean you can’t still get that classic spa look that is so popular in today’s homes. This bathroom has a tiny footprint, but we were still able to add some hotel-style elements that give it a restful and relaxing atmosphere.

One of my favourite things about this small bathroom is that we were able to include a built in shelving unit in the awkward nook. In a perfect world I would have been able to use a wider vanity, but space was limited due to the bump out. Getting enough storage in a bathroom is a challenge at the best of times, and in small bathrooms you’re often limited to the vanity, a towel bar, and maybe some over-the-toilet shelving. But here we were able to use the awkward bump out to our advantage.

Creating a classic, spa inspired look is all about keeping things clean and crisp. We went with a very simple white and gray color scheme and then used a dark vanity to create a grounding effect. Chrome accents add a little sparkle and the light plays off of all the reflective surfaces to make it feel open and bright.
