So many great things you could add to a bathroom and so little space you can use for it. This is the major issue with most small bathrooms. But, when you think about it, even if you had a bigger bathroom, you’d still use the same solutions and ideas. The only difference is you’d just have more empty space left after you’re done decorating. At the end of the day, the storage solutions are the same ones regardless of the size of the bathroom. The space over the toilet, for example, is almost always used the same way. There’s usually either a cabinet or a shelf in this area.
A large piece of artwork hung on the wall might be a possibility, even in your small bathroom. But it might not be, either. Just because you don’t have a free wall, though, doesn’t mean art should be absent from your bathroom. Think outside the box, as does this swirling gem of artistry on the toilet bowl itself.
It’s worth pointing out that bathtubs were originally free standing because they had no connected plumbing. Someone had to heat buckets of water and haul them to the tub to fill it, so you were more likely to be bathing in the kitchen near the hearth, according to Thisoldhouse. In fact,t the aggregation of sanitary and bathroom fixtures into one room didn’t come about until the early 1900s, when the current concept of our “bathroom” emerged.
