Spa-like 'Tiny-Bathroom' Reveal


This 1920's Bathroom needed an upgrade in appearance, functionality and storage.

The clients have two growing children who also use the bathroom, so having enough sink space when getting ready for school in the morning was important.

Our second goal was to maximize storage while keeping it feeling spacious in such a small room. We accomplished this by building a hickory vanity that holds one large sink and double wall faucets with drawers below, then elevated it off the ground to appear smaller and installed under-mount cabinet lighting under the vanity to create a mood-glow in the evenings. We created a matching bench with drawers next to the tub and floating shelves on the back wall of the shower.

We rotated the toilet to better serve the bathroom and fit the storage bench and then replaced the window for increased light.

The clients liked the idea of tiling the whole bathroom floor and installing a freestanding soaker tub to make the room appear larger, but with the two kids, they decided the function of a built-in would be easier to keep up with.


The clients wanted a spa-like feel so we kept the mood light and neutral with white subway tiles, San Felipe Floor tiles, wood accents, and lime wash walls. The original bathroom is shown below followed by a gallery of the finished project. Scroll through and let us know what you think at the bottom. Are you team free standing or built in? What would you have done different and what do you like most? We'd love to hear your thoughts and thanks for looking!
