Even the smallest room in the house can exude a spa-like serenity with these great decorating ideas.

Slight and Slender

A lean, graceful pedestal sink flanked by sconces makes a modest bathroom feel more expansive. A freestanding table functions as a highly edited medicine cabinet.

Sink-side Seating

Tucked beneath a basin, a pair of low stools stand at the ready (and serve as out-of-the-way storage spots in the meantime).

Reflecting Tools

Pearlescent tiles and a decorative mirror bounce limited light around a room that often needs it.


Store towels and toiletries neatly on elegant shelves (an especially useful strategy when there’s no spare closet). A hamper with handles stowed beneath an open sink goes directly from bathroom to laundry room.
