It's all about putting ideas on paper and then applying some clever design tricks, which we'll show you here.
Treating your bathroom styling as part of your bedroom makes the job of designing it a lot less complex.
The master suite featured here makes the bathroom an integral part of the design.
Although it is open plan, the blind separating the two areas can be rolled down if you prefer privacy during bath- or shower time and the toilet has it's own enclosed space.
The real beauty when you look into this bathroom, is seeing a magnificent stone tub which would've been totally dominating for a small bathroom.
The open shower functions the same as a wet room, so it has the added advantage of providing a very generous space.
Gorgeous stone tub + generous shower space ... what's not to like?

Design Tip: Two small bathroom remodel ideas to consider:
Most apartments have en-suite bathrooms now-a-days. Some excellent small bathroom remodel ideas such as the ones featured on this page, not just make your small bathrooms look big (which is really what most of us try to achieve), but warm, and exciting too.
So, if you are ready to make your bathroom the center of attraction read on...
Demarcated showers - even if frameless - can shrink down the already small bathroom making it look even smaller.
An exposed shower is a great way to open up the bathroom space and enjoy the resulting visual appeal.
An open shower is commonly used in Asian countries and the trick here is to floor the entire bathroom with the same style of ceramic tile.
Only the shower half of the floor should be gently sloped towards the drain. Have your ceramic tiles laser cut to a design to facilitate the slope.
Fix a low flow shower head and you've ensured that water won't splash everywhere when you shower.
You can even use a frosted or stained glass open partition with a height of 5 to 5.5 feet. This not only provides some privacy, but also allows for proper ventilation and a flow of natural light, without cramping the space.
A small space need not be small in impact. It's about being bold!
Providing adequate storage space in an en-suite bathroom is a challenging job.
There are many storage styles for smaller bathrooms: using multiple towel stands, space saving storage units under the vanity or the sink, recesses in external walls etc. are the common ways.
Design Tip: Use of glass shelves helps enhance the sense of space in a room. Since glass is transparent it gives the impression of being invisible and things stored on them seem to be suspended in air, lending an 'airy' effect!
Of Pearly-Whites and Neutrals - If you're worried that you may induce claustrophobia in your small bathroom, then stay away from too many dark and deep colored fittings, surface colors and accessories. Instead, work with shades of white, gray, light pastels, and earthy tones to set the mood for a serene space.
Note the use of dark splashes in the mirror and floor and behind the toilet and how they immediately draw your eye and become the focal point in this bathroom.
Having said that, don't be afraid to use dark colours in your bathroom - it's a balancing act!
By using dark colours on floors and sparingly on accent walls and fixtures, you can create a sophisticated space without feeling like you're in a dark cave.
Ultimately, the whole purpose of our small bathroom ideas is to create a space that is warm, relaxing, and welcoming. And that's what these designs for small bathrooms can help you achieve!
