Owning a tiny home comes with its fair share of challenges, but with a little creativity, it’s easy to maximize any space…even the bathroom! Let Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling help you design a tiny home bathroom that makes the most of its square footage while maintaining a gorgeous aesthetic.
A tiny house is considered anything under 100 square feet. This means that every room in the house is going to be considerably smaller than an average residential home, and the bathroom is no exception. In a typical home, residential bathrooms are usually 5’x9’ or larger, but a tiny home’s bathroom can measure just 3’x3’!
Therefore, it’s extremely important to find ways to utilize every inch of bathroom area! Here are some of our best ideas:
Take any or all of these suggestions to make your tiny home bathroom seem bigger! If you’re at a loss for what will work best for your floor plan, consult a pro like Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling to get an idea of what will make your small bathroom feel bigger and more useful.
Tiny homes are incredibly popular these days, and for many good reasons:
They are eco-friendly. Residents of tiny homes are more mindful about how much water they use, especially in homes that are mobile. These homes make less of a carbon footprint because they do not use as much gas or electricity to heat or cool.
They provide financial freedom. A smaller home means a smaller house payment, freeing owners up to do more of what they love or save a substantial amount of money for the future.
They support a minimalistic lifestyle. Living in a small space helps you determine what’s really important. Being free from clutter and unnecessary junk is an appealing way of life in today’s busy world!
Whatever your reason for tiny home living, Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling can help you design the perfect small house for your family, including a bathroom that is fully functional and beautiful!

If you’re not up on the latest residential bathroom trends, let us enlighten you!
1) A shallow middle cabinet
Such a simple idea, but so much usefulness! Similar to a medicine cabinet, this slim storage space would sit directly between your double sinks in the area where you usually keep shared items like toothpaste, lotions, or medicines.
Everything you need is still conveniently located nearby, but you avoid the clutter. Plus, it’s great to be able to replicate the design of your lower cabinets with something that’s at eye level.
These cabinets are no more than 4 inches deep, but they are plenty big enough to store just about anything that you would typically leave out on the counter.
2) An all-black bathroom
This bold design is sleek and modern. To keep it from being pitch black, we recommend marbled black tile or actual black marble for your countertops. You can highlight with white, silver or gold accents for an ultra-luxe finish.
Besides being extremely stylish, your black floors and countertops will be much easier to keep clean than white, and they won’t stain.
If all-black is just too much, you can talk to a contractor or designer about how to use more black in your bathroom to mimic this look without going all the way. A black floor, for example, would make a huge statement without having to do much else to the room.
3) The vanity in front of a window
Yes, usually there’s a mirror there, but we have many customers who tell us that they do their grooming in front of a dressing table, either in the bathroom or in the bedroom, due to lighting or just a desire to sit down while doing makeup, hair and other tasks.
For these people, a window behind the sink is an interesting idea, especially if it looks out on a beautiful landscape. Rather than watching yourself brush your teeth every morning, you could be taking in a sunset or gazing on fresh dew.
You can still place a mirror somewhere else in the bathroom without sacrificing your view, or you can opt for no mirror if you have one in an adjacent room, such as a full-length mirror or a dressing table with a magnifying mirror in the bedroom.
While simple, all three of these ideas incorporate things we haven’t seen before in Overland Park home trends. It’s likely that these styles will transition into other areas of the home such as the kitchen because of their high style and usefulness.
