Small baths can be changed radically while keeping the same footprint. All it takes is some creative redesign of the existing layout. Here are some tips for choosing the right lighting, showers, and sinks for your bathroom remodel when you don't have a lot of space.
Have you ever noticed how pulling the shower curtain back in a small bathroom gives the room a lift? It’s like turning on a light after a long blackout. More and more designers these days are ditching shower curtains and traditional shower doors in favor of wet areas with floor drains. It’s like leaving the light on without burning a bulb. Here are four of our favorites.

This article highlights the advantages of using stand-alone sinks, rather than one adjoined to a vanity cabinet, in small bathrooms.
