Even though you have a small bathroom it doesn’t mean it can’t have a big style. No matter your budget you can still make an impact.
In this small bathroom, this was done by keeping the space light and bright. The walls are painted in BM Chantilly Lace OC-65 which is a pure white that is said to have no warm or cool undertones.
The subway tile is classic polished white and the floor is a timeless black and white hex pattern design. The mixed metal used in the fixtures and decor add interest to another wise simple and clean bathroom design.
To add more interest to this neutral bathroom design any color could be added for that extra pop. that is the beauty of designing neutral rooms you can accent with any color. If you get bored just change out the pop color.

Small Bathroom Makeover
Today we will share all the key components of this bathroom remodel minus any labor costs. This was part of a larger project but a typical price range (in long island NY) would be between $6000-$8000 for the contractor fees alone.
Finish material costs are where things can really get out of hand if you are not careful. We will share the cost that we paid for a general idea but your costs will depend on the products and materials you choose.
Hope this helps as you plan out your next bathroom remodel project.
The look and feel of this design were kept classic and timeless. The Black and white hexagon floor has been around FOREVER. The possibilities you can create with this floor tile are endless.
You can even design a pattern with verbiage in the floor like this design.

We chose chrome in the fixtures to keep the cost down. The lines of this collection are modern and stylish which we love.
Love the lines of this simple toilet paper holder. No need to go fancy here in our opinion but of course your could.
Not every bathroom needs a hand towel hook but this one called for it. Since it’s a small bathroom makeover with limited counter space the extra holder is helpful.
This can be used inside the shower area or right outside to help with the steam from your hot water. The beauty of this one is it has a built-in light that serves double duty.
If there is one area to splurge this is it. This large medicine cabinet is great for extra storage in a small bathroom. The gold trim colorway adds that touch of glam but it also comes in other colors if that’s not your jam.
One of the cutest vanities in the 30″ size range and trust me we searched. It will ship with silver handles but those can be changed for gold or black if you prefer.
We love the lines of this faucet but to keep the cost as lost as possible we chose the chrome finish. Gold and black faucets are trending but they cost more so keep that in mind.
We bought the set of four because the style of the hexagon handles was the perfect complement to the hex tile. The extra two can be used in another project or if the finish wears down. Obviously, we hope that won’t happen but just in case we have a backup set.
Our tile was from my trade account with Tilebar but this is the same style that we have. Make sure you read this post before purchasing your subway tile!
Between two and three rows of the solid white pattern were used as the border in the floor and shower areas. Our hex tile was purchased from Floor & Decor so we could return the extra but this is the same thing.
The solid black was used in between the solid white and black and white main tile pattern. This project was time-consuming for the installer (two days) but it was worth it!
Where it all started. So this tile was bought first and then we stalked Pinterest for ideas on how to jazz it up. The end result is beautiful and Pinterest worthy!
This grout is great because it is in a premixed tub. No need to worry about touch-ups since it will last in the container pre-mixed.
We got this at the outlet which is why the cost was super low. If you are interested it’s still available at Pottery Barn. Not sure how it wound up at the outlet but grateful it did!
15. Bath Hook
Perfect inexpensive hooks to hold your robe or towels as they dry. From Magnolia Home which is a super cute home decor collection at Target.
A simple white shower bar will do the trick in a budget-friendly bathroom makeover. Nothing fancy here.
One of the best rings to buy because they close completely. There are other rings that have open ends but we find those do not stay on. If you don’t want to fuss with your shower curtain rings these are perfect.
We love that this shower curtain has the touch of black going through so it ties back the black in the floor tile.
Add a shower liner to protect your decorative curtain so it lasts longer and does not stain.
One of the best handheld shower head options because the power will be the same if not better than the standard showerhead. That is according to my rep I spoke to when deciding which to buy.
Not an area to splurge in a budget bathroom but awesome for a luxury remodel. If you have no budget we are obsessed with the wall mount versions. Sadly that style was way out of our budget.
22. Shower Drain
This style is for the tile floor, not the pan shower floor.
In conclusion, just because your budget is low you can still have fun with your small bathroom remodel. I hope this gave you ideas and inspirations to get started today!
Have an amazing night full of Unicorns & Rainbows!
