It feels like the biggest thing in home design right now is a very small thing: tiny houses. Tiny homes seem to be the result of today’s wellness trend. A tiny home lifestyle subscribes to simplicity, sustainability and cleverness. However, learning to live in a small space is certainly nothing new. Apartments, RVs, studios, cottages, trailers, just simply having too many folks in the family have been inspiring the tiny home lifestyle for generations. One of the most frustrating elements of a modest home is the bathroom, which tends be the smallest room in the house, susceptible to the use of all family members and guests. When your husband needs the sink to shave, your daughter needs the toilet, and you haven’t even brushed your teeth yet, a small bathroom can turn into a disaster. But with a bit of clever design, a tiny bathroom can be practical and lovely.
In order to maintain an attractive small bathroom, designers must make the most of awkward tiny spaces that are normally unused in larger rooms. Corners might become sinks, walls might become shelves, doors–towel racks.
