How to Build a Bathroom With Very Limited Space?

It's always nice to have a personal space where you can relax. It's even more important when there is only one room in your home and you want it to be used for a specific purpose. This is the case for many homeowners with small bathroom spaces that are not large enough for an outside bathtub or shower. So how do you maximize your room? The space needs to be used efficiently and effectively, which means making smart design decisions from the ground up. In this article, we will teach you how to build a bathroom in a limited space and make some of the best use of your time and budget.

Maximizing your space

When you are trying to maximize your space, it's best to focus on the few things that your room needs. If your bathroom has a limited amount of square footage, you'll need to identify what you want to be used for and how much space you have for each purpose. The first step is deciding if there will be a shower or bathtub in the bathroom. Generally speaking, bathroom spaces work better with a shower cabinet rather than a tub. The second step is deciding if you want to use your space as primarily a bath or as primarily a shower. It is important to consider this because it will help determine how much space you might need for both the bathtub and the shower.

Once that decision is made, decide what type of sink and toilet are needed. Then consider whether or not you want to share your bathroom with another room or have an alcove in the room for storage like a linen closet (and where do you want that closet). Once these decisions are made, it's time to start designing!

Creating a functional layout

The key to a successful design is having a functional layout. When you're limited on space, it's very important that you don't create an overcrowded and cluttered bathroom. Instead of packing in every single feature, try your best to keep the room organized and efficient.

One way to organize your space is by putting the amenities where they need to be. For instance, if you are trying to use your bathroom for relaxing after a long day, your sink should be close by so that you can place your hands on it while washing them when you need to. You also want the toilet and shower in the same area so that everything stays within reach.

Installing the sink and toilet

A very important part of the design is the sink and toilet. Placing them in the corner will give you more room for other things. You should also consider installing a walk-in shower rather than a tub because it takes up less space and is easier to clean. If you want to include a bathtub, please make sure that it doesn't take up any space in your limited bathroom layout. By limiting your bathroom's size, you can ensure that everything functions properly and efficiently.

Building the vanity cabinet

A big part of building a bathroom is the vanity cabinet. In this step, you will build the vanity and attach it to your wall. The space can be used for just about anything from storing toiletries to extra towels and cleaners. The most important part of this is making sure the cabinet you build is wide enough for two people to sit comfortably at once. This way, you won't have to spend time waiting for a seat in front of the mirror every morning.

Adding storage options

It's not just about the space that you have to worry about. Depending on the amount of storage you need, there are different options available to you. For example, if you're living in a small house and want to build a bathroom with limited storage, then it will be difficult for you to find a way to store your toiletries neatly. However, if you can't fit everything in your limited space, then consider adding a cupboard or some kind of shelving unit.

Another option is buying an item that can double as functional furniture and storage. A great example of this is a shower caddy . This type of product is designed specifically for holding shampoo bottles and other bathroom supplies so they're within reach but don't take up too much space. You'll also get extra time-saving benefits from this item since it's sturdy enough to hold other items like towels.


I am often asked how to build a bathroom with very limited space. I believe the key to designing a functional bathroom is to focus on maximizing your space and creating a functional layout. Here are some of the things I did to create a functional layout with a minimum of space.

First, I decided on the size of the sink and toilet. I chose a round sink with a 60-inch depth and a standard toilet size of 20 inches in depth. Next, I built the vanity cabinet out of two super cheap cabinets from Home Depot. I used the cabinets as a platform for the sink, toilet, and toilet paper dispenser. I then installed a bar across the top of the cabinets for more storage options and drilled holes in the back for towel hooks. Lastly, I built shelving for towels and toiletries that fit inside the cabinets. And you know what? It looks great!
