Very Tiny Powder Room

Posted on Sunday, March 22nd, 2009 at 1:51 am

The size of this tiny powder room is only 5′x3′. This is one of the addition that we did to our house. With this tiny powder room we have 2.5 bathroom in total in our house.  Because of the small size of this powder room, I had to look for compact fixtures.  Unfortunately, regular American brands that we often find in Home Depot and Lowe’s are all too big for my tiny powder room.  Because American like things to be big and super-sized.  On the contrary, the European like things to be small and compact, which is perfect for my powder room.  The only downside is just, their products are so darn expensive.
After I did my research, I decided to go with Duravit Starck wall hung toilet and sink.  I figured since I only have limited space, it is best to keep everything above the floor to prevent the room feeling cramped.


The toilet tank is hidden behind the wall. Therefore, the wall above the toilet is the perfect space for storage.  I put recessed shelving instead of regular shelving to gain more space in the room.

I like the idea of using touchless soap dispenser.  However, the downside is that the battery runs out very fast.  So, before you consider buying something like that, you have to keep in mind that you have to change the battery very often and it might just stop working when you did not expect it.

    I like this design very much! It appears very comfy. Everythings seems to be in harmony.
    There is one thing that might interest me, it’s the water tap (faucet), it seems to be very high in the picture. My experiences with high taps are, that the water will splash when it hits the basin.

    Thank you for the comment. I really appreciate it. Regarding the faucet, it actually does not splash too much. It splash a little bit, however since the basin is very small sometimes water gets on the floor.

    We are going to be re-doing our powder room but have a similar size space and are finding it hard to work things out. We have been looking into a wall hung toilet as well… are you happy with it? I also love the floor!
