Small Baths That Live Large

Two remodeled bathrooms showcase strategies that make small spaces feel roomy, without big changes

Bathroom remodels are among the most expensive changes you can make to your house, especially when you start moving fixtures around. With that in mind, architect Russell Hamlet kept the floor plans intact for both the upstairs and downstairs baths in this house, concentrating instead on improving the fixtures, finishes, and lighting. Glass mosaic tiles splash brilliant color across the walls of each bath. Extensive listings include sources for vanity lighting, heaters, bathroom fans, and cork flooring selections.
