Tiny Guest Bath Makeover Packed with Style

Easy Tile Ideas for Your Shower
By moving elements within the same footprint, this powder room was upgraded to a beautiful guest bath. This small bathroom makeover infuses modern styling with a classic color palette to create a perfect combination.

Before: Plain Powder Room

Before the remodel, this main-floor powder room was drab and not at all functional for the nearby guest room. Inspired by a palette of calming hues and the need for a better layout and shower stall, this bathroom got a much-needed new look.


After: Shining Star

With the window shifted into the opposite corner, the bathroom now has room for a modern vanity, toilet, and new glass shower. To sneak in even more storage under the window, a second vanity was purchased and then cut in half to fit the tight space.


Petite baths need smart solutions, and this one is no exception. On-the-wall space savers include a frameless mirror, a single-handle faucet, and a towel hook instead of a bar. A pale blue-gray paint color keeps the room light, while bright accent colors bring energy.


Slim Solution

At just 12 inches deep, the second bathroom cabinet is the perfect place to store toilet paper and other bathroom essentials. The toilet paper holder doubles as a cabinet door handle, and the narrow ledge above is perfect for a curated group of accessories. 

New Addition

In the new shower stall, porcelain subway tiles and glass accent tiles team up for to-the-ceiling luxury with an easy-clean surface. A built-in niche adds storage for shower products and keeps them off of the floor.

Texture Underfoot

Pebble mosaic tile gives guests' feet a soothing massage just by stepping inside. A mix of materials creates a luxurious look for a small price -- perfect for a guest bath.

Mix and match tile to create a beautiful shower that won't bust your budget.
