Lovely Little Loos: Small Bathrooms with Big Style

Many of the bathrooms we see profiled in magazines and websites are downright cavernous. Double sinks, walk-in showers, the odd chair in the corner. It's fun to dream. But what if your bathroom is small. Don't fret. It is possible to have a lovely, inviting and stylish bathroom without a mansion. With a little strategic space planning, built-in cabinets, smaller sinks, lots of mirrors, and a few other tricks, you can make your small bathroom feel less claustrophobic.

7 A small 5x7 bathroom was renovated to make better use of the space. A new rounded sink occupies less space and the entire wall above the sink was made into one big mirror. The medicine cabinet, which once jutted out, was built into what had been a jog in the wall to the right of the sink. Sunset.
