An over the toilet shelf is a good design option when the toilet is adjacent to the sink and the space directly above them features a wall-mounted mirror or some other element. In these cases, the sink vanity extends into a shelf.
Freestanding tubs were particularly popular among the wealthy population, writes Bathtubsplus. Not only could they be placed anywhere, but their style allowed servants to access all sides of the tub to assist the individual with bathing. This continues with the popularity of the victorian age claw foot tub.
Research has shown that using more of dark colors in a small bathroom makes it look and feel smaller but the reverse is the case when you add lighter colors. If the cabinetry in the bathroom is brown, you can visually enlarge the space by going for tiles that are of light color, may be the same as the bathtub and also have brown designs. Ensure that the tiles you opt for are larger in size as this helps to make the space look larger.
