Small bathroom color palettes don’t have be limited to grays and whites. Small spaces can use rich, bright colors and patterns that might be overwhelming in a larger space.

The blue tiles and brown wooden work give a subtle refreshing atmosphere.
In larger powder rooms and bathrooms, small patterns can look cluttered whereas, in tiny powder rooms, small, medium and large wallpaper patterns work well. Amanda Barnes Interiors design a tiny bathroom with small floral geometry patterned beige tiles.
Another example of small wall design is shown in the design by AMP Design.co. Different geometrical tiles are composed together to create a single patterned wall, as to not over do the design. Keeping it simple and stylish altogether. The rest of the bathroom is white along with the fixtures, allowing visual light and openness.

Patterns look great in small bathrooms. Here we have a patterned floor bathroom. You see how the small square footage actually works in your favor. The bathroom interior space designed by Linie W Przestrzeni uses patterned floor with simplistic tiles. It is put to balance by adding gold fixtures in a very subtle manner. Keeping it minimal and eye-catching at the same time.
Another decor trick that adds class to your bathroom without taking up space, are the gold and brass fixtures instead of common chrome. In a bathroom interior design by Linie W Przestrzeni, we see a use of brass fixtures, suspension lights, as well as a round brass framed mirror that add elegance to the bathroom. This bathroom design idea is an artistic mix of textures, and finishes.
Furthermore, to create a sense of openness, the walls of small bathrooms are covered with plain, bright white tiles. This results in additions among the fixtures, floor patterns and other intricate details. To give a touch of glamour and style, brass and gold fixtures can be incorporated, as mentioned earlier.
Floor tiles with small patterns create an interesting mood. Shelvings and cabinets can be used in different materials and colors that enhance the white tiles, adding a hint of freshness. Instead of adding mass partitions, glass partitions can be added to maximize the look, allowing an open and breathable space.
