But remodeling a small bathroom can be especially tough. You want a shower-with-vanity set-up, but limited space doesn’t seem to allow for that without feeling cramped. Well. Here are some bathroom ideas that make everything work, and with great style.

If your bathroom is driving you nuts or just not working, use these pictures as inspiration:

1. Modern Small Bathroom Layout

small-bathroom-remodel-design With an elongated tub working alongside a shower corner that includes a spa-quality spout and narrow full-length mirror, this bathroom packs a lot of punch for its small square footage. A window even lets in fresh air, barred with bushes for privacy. Note the simplicity of the detailing, including the lighting above.

2. Space-Savvy Master Bathroom

Symmetry helps with the clean lines, and the low-contrast color scheme keeps everything light and fresh. Plus, glossy bathroom tile leads way to a beautifully showcased tub with a view.

3. Zen-Modern Small Bathroom

4. Japanese-Inspired Efficiency
