The ornamental composition of the tiles is what conveys the importance in this other small bathroom, transforming it into one with good taste.

The green tiles with that vintage pattern, the wooden suspended cabinet and the gold accents give it a style that many of the much more sumptuous bathrooms that I have seen would love. You can see the before and after this bath on the Old Brand New blog.

Wood is a material that previously seemed to be prohibited in bathrooms, but at this time, thanks to the new treatments to which this material is subjected, we have the possibility of covering the bathroom completely if we wish with it.

If you are looking for a warm and pleasant bath, you need to put wood in it.

If you enjoy this combination, here you can see much more white and wood bathrooms.

Add a particular look.

It is a way of providing a very attractive ornamental point to the bathroom. It is still possible that it will suit you better, since if the speculum is large and the ceiling is small, you will not be able to hang it on the wall.

By choosing wisely the different elements that make up the bathroom, as well as the toilet, the sink, the cabinets, the shower or shower cabin, in a perfect but corresponding size for the dimensions of a small bathroom, we will optimize the free space.

Neutral and clear.

With the right elements and appropriate colors to make a clean and uncluttered space.

Take a look at this one above these lines. It is a very ordinary bathroom, but it is clean and uncluttered, all in white with red accents. Flirtatious and pretty. It is not required considerably more.

The very elegant non-embellished marble fits spectacularly into small spaces, transforming them into classy bathrooms.

If you add golden accents to the marble, which you can easily include in taps, towel racks and other accessories, you will achieve a delicate aesthetic.

The marble in white tones better than in dark so that the small bathroom is much more luminous.

No marble but very elegant.

It is not a solution that is usually seen a lot in Spain at least. But it is a great idea to give the bathroom warmth, even if the wood is painted white.

If you find the whole bathroom cold enough white, apart from the black accents for contrast and distinction, add some vegetable fiber accessories such as baskets, baskets and also some wood, and you will give warmth to the bathroom.

White and light.

A huge combination for a small bathroom: white.

Whether in ceramic or paint, white is the color that much more percentage of light reflects, so that as soon as it receives, the bathroom will be transformed into a much more luminous space.

If you find it quite bland, you can add decoration on the floor, leaving the walls free to project maximum light.
