Not every home is able to fit a large bathroom, but there are ways to work around it! Here are 4 design tips to maximizing a small bathroom:

1. Build shelving in unexpected places. “Adding a large shelf in the shower provides a designated place to store products so they don’t end up cluttered on the floor or inside the tub,” says Alana. A small basket holds stray loofas, while a piece of framed artwork and a hanging planter adds a decorative touch.

2. Create the illusion of more space. A large mirror across one wall breathes new life into the compact quarters. To create a natural sense of flow, the design duo opted for bright white tiles all over the bathroom. Plus, a low standing tub maximizes square footage (and makes it easy for the homeowners to bathe their new baby).

3. Opt for a light color palette. Bright whites, cool-toned marble and brushed bronze give the bathroom a cohesive, yet sophisticated look. To keep the space from feeling too spare, Alana and Jordy added pops of personality in the decor, like this cheeky art print from Minted framed in a large mat for a more custom look.

4. Make storage a priority. “We were thoughtful about the details,” says Jordy. “For example, we chose drawers for the vanity instead of doors, because they allow for more storage, and are easier to keep organized.”
