5 Bathroom Makeovers With an 8-by-5-Foot Bathroom

February 19, 2018

The most common bathroom size measures 8 by 5 feet — enough room for a single sink, a toilet and a shower or shower-bathtub combination. You may think there isn’t much you can do with an area of this size but you’d be wrong.


Here, five projects within these dimensions showcase clever ways to create virtual and literal space, and how to make big style statements on budgets small and large.


If someone else turned their dismal bath into a place of joy and pleasure, you can, too.


Before: Dark & Dreary


After: Bright & Cheery

With the help of quartz countertop it help to turned the bathroom into a charming, colorful, attention-worthy space. The walls are designed with wallpaper in turquoise.



Before: Bland & Boring


After: Modern Makeover


From an old 1950’s look to a modern rustic look. The makeover makes the bathroom looks more pleasant and cleaner.​ 


Before: Outdated Art Deco


After: Vintage-Inspired


A huge makeover from 1930s Art Deco era bathroom with a cat comfortably sitting on it : to a light-filled bathroom with vintage-inspired floor tiles, subway tile, a Caesarstone tub and countertops, frameless shower and tons of other fantastic touches. Simply amazing! 


Before: Functional but Dated


After: Lighter & More Open

Before, it was a fully functioning bathroom that basically had nothing wrong with it except for one thing: it felt drab and dated. What to do?


We turned it into a bathroom which feels airier and lighter by switching out the old pre-fabricated stall-style shower with a frameless glass shower.  Frameless showers allow a maximum of light to pass through–a bonus for small spaces.


Before: Seventies Style

After: Bright & White


A bathroom that was stylistically too busy, cramped and imposing. It was obvious that this room needed a style intervention and a total revamp from floor to ceiling, installing white subway tile and a frameless glass shower.


One unexpected but welcome spot of color is provided by the vintage stained glass window insert. A cheerful paint scheme completes the look.
