Small Bathroom Design

I'm trying not to get to over excited over here but a friend of mine here in Altus has been slowly renovating their older 1940's- 50's home themselves (her husband is a contractor). They've done the kitchen and other projects and they are ready to tackle the bathroom. She said that she's stuck for ideas though and is looking for some help. Hooray for some real design work!!

I have yet to see it but from what she's told me it very pink and very small. We're hoping to get together this weekend to talk options. In the meantime I've been searching for ideas and inspiration of small bathroom solutions.

Storage is an issue in any size bathroom but especially in a small one. If it's an option building shelving into the wall between studs is a good way to add storage and save space as well.

Adding open shelving is a great storage solution:

Another way to add storage space is in the vanity:

One way to make a small space feel larger is using light colors and monchromatic materials:

Or sometimes drama is the way to go:

Clean and classic is always a safe bet when designing any space:

Though my friend is eager to get rid of her pink bathroom style there are a lot of people out there who want to preserve this piece of American history. Pink and other pastel colored bathrooms are being torn out left and right. Save The Pink Bathrooms is a website dedicated to try to preserve pink bathrooms everywhere

What is your opinion? If you had a pink bathroom would you work with it or work it out of your home? What small space solutions have you come up with?

One idea is to use high places as storage space, like the space up a door for things you don't need that often, that makes other parts of your bathroom more spacious :)
