Keeping clean lines is great way to create the illusion of space in a smaller bathroom. Say no to anything fussy. And maximising natural light will always help. While you don’t have to stick to white, lighter colours will definitely work better. Take advantage of the many smaller and narrower vanities, sinks and toilets on the market which are designed with small spaces in mind.
Here’s a word of warning, though. It’s going to take more time than you think. Why? Your bathroom may be the smallest room in the house, but you’re going to have to paint slowly and gently around the window, the tub or shower, the sink, the mirror, the toilet, the switchplates, the wall corners, and the floor. This takes time and patience (and a good supply of painter’s tape), so make sure you keep this in mind when planning your renovation.
Multiple electrical outlets make a bath efficient and functional. Any located near water must be grounded. Your local codes may put additional restrictions on placement of outlets in terms of distance off the floor and proximity to the tub or shower.
For powder rooms, balance the need for privacy with the need for easy access to the half bath from any public space in the home (e.g., down a short hall instead of adjacent to a dining room or living room). If you enjoy outdoor activities like gardening or have children at home, consider placing the powder room close to an outdoor entrance to limit the amount of mud and dirt tracked indoors.
