When it comes to designing a small bathroom, especially if you’re renovating, you’d be forgiven for wanting to take the bath out of the equation. I’m a big believer in bathing so this doesn’t sit well with me, but I know I’m probably in the minority.
You don’t have to incorporate every shade of the monochromatic rainbow. It’s possible to focus on creating an ultra-clean white space or to experiment with various hues of gray. Just mix up the space with a few different prints and patterns to keep the room from seeming too one-note.
If a low-maintenance bath is high on your list of priorities, choose easy-to-clean finishes and fixtures, such as undermounted sinks, flat-front cabinet doors that won’t collect dust and vanities that mount to the wall, leaving the floor accessible underneath for easy sweeping and mopping.
Your local building code will dictate certain minimum clearances. For instance, it may call for 21 inches of clear space in front of the toilet or 4 inches between a sink basin and the wall. Local codes may differ from national codes, so be sure you or your designer is aware of your municipality’s requirements at the start of the design process.
