Keeping clutter at bay is key in a small bathroom. These cabinets don’t intrude into the room and allow you to stash everything you’ll need at the sink within easy reach. This particular bathroom has three cabinets so that the three people who share the bathroom each have their own.
A low-profile toilet and extended counter combination. Interior designer Bridget McMullin deems this a hotel trick, a clever move she picked up from hotel bathrooms. The low-profile toilet leaves enough space to extend the counter into a shelf above it.
More popular in European countries, these rooms maximize a small bathroom footprint. If you’ve ever had a sleeper car on a train, you know how this works. A separate shower stall is not required and everything in the room can stand up to the water.
The tanks from these toilets are stored behind the wall, saving all that space they usually take up in a room. These inches play an important role because there are requirements for how much space there should be in front of and around the commode.
