These 5 Tiny Bathroom Makeovers Show Clever Space Solutions
  • Bathrooms are often an afterthought—after all, most condo and apartment bathrooms are usually the smallest rooms in the unit. Homeowners would think: what else can you do to improve it? And then the next thing you know, tiles become dirty, fixtures are broken, and the bathroom ends up looking unsightly.

    But what use is a beautiful house if you have an ugly bathroom? Get loads of renovation ideas (from budget to break-the-bank) from these dramatic bathroom makeovers by Real Living’s interior designers:

    Safety first, plus top-of-the-line fixtures

    Interior designer Nikki Audine not only had to make Mommy Purita's bathroom beautiful, she also had to make it safe for the homeowner. Nikki's primary concern was the slippery tiles, so she replaced these with slip-resistant porcelain tiles from Cerim Italy courtesy of Sanitec. She also added Lavo grab bars in the shower area, and a Yatin L-shaped handle (both from Sanitec) for ease in the toilet area.
