When you're remodeling a teeny bathroom, you often don't have the choice to move the walls. So even though you can change pretty much everything else, the tininess stays. With that in mind, I've rounded up a few clever ideas worth considering for your tiny bathroom renovation, ways to squeeze a lot of style into a very small footprint.

In this Hamptons beach house, a walk-in shower, outfitted with a frameless door and clad in the same tile as the rest of the bathroom, feels like an extension of the space.

The narrow bathroom of this Brooklyn apartment has a glass divider in place of a shower curtain, which takes up less space both physically and visually.

Back in Brooklyn, here's another walk-in shower whose minimal detailing helps it to meld seamlessly with the rest of the room, visually enlarging the space. The recessed shower shelf is a particularly good choice for a small bathroom, since it provides a place for shampoo and other necessities without cluttering up the shower with a hanging caddy.

Sometimes little fixtures are the perfect choice for little spaces. Case in point: this petite brass sink in a London apartment. The wall-mounted taps save even more space, and the floating, custom-made Corian vanity helps to open up the space.

The house where this tiny bathroom is located is only 196 square feet, so space is definitely at a premium. The little sink by Barclay is only 12.6 inches square, and the telescoping IKEA mirror serves its purpose neatly without blocking the window.

In this Austin home, designed with a very strict budget in mind, a tiny sink sits on hairpin legs, making a stylish statement in a small footprint.

As the bathroom of this Brooklyn townhouse demonstrates, a clawfoot tub can be a surprisingly good choice for a small bathroom, adding a touch of elegance while visually opening up the space.
