small bathroom

jamiesharp76December 2, 2012
I have a very small bathroom: shower over tub takes up one wall directly across from the door, directly beside that is the sink then toilet. directly beside the toilet is the cabinet. There are only upper cabinets in the bathroom and the lower part is accessed outside the bathroom in the hallway. I want to move all access into the bathroom but because of the toilet and door and feel that my only option is a corner cabinet.

Are you able to cut into the drywall, and do open shelving with baskets? The toilet and door will not be a problem then.

I have thought about that but the idea of having my bathroom supplies just in baskets bothers me a little bit. I am worried I'd be self conscious about my threadbare towels, toilet paper, etc.

we had a very similar bathroom. just remodeled (completed 4 weeks ago). that corner bump out in our bathroom was an old oil furnace flue, so we had no storage at all for the bathroom. we removed that, switched the toilet and sink location and were able to get a 36 inch vanity in. I love that space now. not sure how much you want to put into the space, but everyone comments on how much more open that bathroom feels with that corner flue gone. I'll try and post before and afters later tonight after work.

I think I would replace the sink with a small vanity that has a little storage. There are tons of small vanitiies to choose from. Then add some open shelves over the towel bar. You could also add a wall cabinet that matches the vanity over the toilet but be careful because It might start to look too crowded.

Get a new framed mirror. It looks like yours is hung too high.
