Tiny homes have to make efficient use of space and that includes the bathrooms. A tiny house bathroom has to accommodate a toilet, a bath and/or shower, and a sink in a very small amount of space. An exception to this is when a house will share a kitchen and bathroom sink. In average sized homes, bathrooms average about 45 square feet and that’s on the smaller end of the scale. 45 square feet, however, is way too big for a bathroom in a tiny house.
Despite the tiny size of a tiny house bathroom, they can still be beautifully designed as well as functional. Take a look at some tiny house bathroom designs below for some design inspiration for your own tiny home. These are not listed in any particular order; we think they’re all beautiful in their own unique and tiny way.

Tiny Bathroom Remodel in Portland, OR
This bathroom is a tiny 3 feet by 3 feet and the designers did an amazing job making the most out of a very small space. The toilet serves multiple functions; not only is it a toilet, but the top is a sink and it also functions as a shower seat. This style of bathroom is what’s known as a wet room because the shower is open to the toilet and sink. The wet room design is a great option when working with limited square footage and even though it’s small, the light coming through and the white tile floors and walls make the bathroom seem spacious.
