Living Small- The Bathroom

One thing I have discovered with the Living Small Series is that it is going to be a pretty small series.
Due to the fact that when you Live Small there’s only so much you can talk about or show ha!
With that said I thought I’d show you our bathroom.
You’ve seen it before with other pictures I’ve posted here and there on the blog. 
It is tiny. Itty Bitty. 
You can sit on the toilet and lay your head on the bathroom sink tiny. πŸ™‚
So here’s a little peek at it.
As well as a few tips on making a small bathroom work.
I don’t keep a plethora of shampoos, lotions, bath supplies on hand.
I just store exactly what we need.
Our bathroom is so small that all we have is a tiny cabinet in there.
You can find similar cabinets like this from Target, Lowes or Walmart.
We have always had a little cabinet like this in the bathroom.
It gets moved around…sometimes behind the door and sometimes next to the tub and sink.
I store my makeup, blowdryer, flat iron, hair products, lotions and such in it.
I keep all of our towels in the laundry room on a shelving system I have in there.
And that’s the extent of the bathroom!
A few details…
+the shower curtain is from Urban Outfitters Online
+the white towels are from Ikea
+basket is from Target years ago
+curtain hooks are from Target years ago
I have people ask me more often than not,
“how do you make it work with one bathroom?!”
And honestly… it’s not that bad.
Travis is a typical male and doesn’t spend a lot of time in there.
And the babies all bathe in the evenings.
Which leaves the bathroom empty for me to get ready whenever I need to!
Now, as everyone gets older I’m sure it’ll become a bit trickier.
But for now it really is not an issue at ALL.
As usual, if you have any questions leave them in the comments! 
And you can find the rest of the Living Small Series HERE.
Hope your day was a good one friends!

  1. It can be hard having one bathroom…we do too and ours is even smaller. We have made it work but while potty training my daughter it has been a bit more difficult.

  2. Ashley-

    Love your blog! We have five boys and all seven of us share 1600 sq. ft. and one full bath. I have two teenagers, who spend quite a bit of time in the bathroom, so occasionally, I have to kick them out! This is our 11th year homeschooling and I am so thankful that God has allowed me to do it this long. I don't take it for granted and know it could change at anytime! Have a great school year! Laura

  3. I just found your blog and I love it. We just moved to England, where nearly all the homes are small. We found a home to rent and our bedrooms are really small, but we are making it work. Learning to live with less space has been a challenge, but at the same it's been a relief not to spend so much time cleaning. And I'm finding that I don't need as much room as I thought to be happy. You have a lovely home, I love your ideas, thanks for sharing.

  4. So adorable! I love the floors and the way the tile goes over 1/2 way up the wall – super cute!

    So did you all move within the same town or completely relocate?

    have a great week, lady!

  5. loooove your bathroom! i especially love all the black and white you use throughout your home! it's actually inspiring me for some plans we have to build a house hopefully here soon πŸ™‚ you might have already addressed my question, but i'm curious as to where you store things like christmas and other holiday decor. also, what about old kids clothing you've kept to use as hand me downs? i've got tubs of clothes, shoes, and other accessories (high chair, stroller, car seat, and so on) stored for if we were to have another baby and it takes up a lot of space πŸ™‚

  6. such a great series! my family and i are attempting to live small–recently becoming a stay-at-home mom and going from 2 incomes to 1. you make it look so good πŸ™‚
    thanks so much for sharing!

  7. I want to see your laundry room and the closet organization! Thank you for posting this. We live in a 2 bedroom apartment, so I often dream of a bigger space. Your outlook is inspiring.

  8. Hi! I just stumbled across your blog as a link from Kelly's Korner. πŸ™‚ I thought I'd leave a quick comment because I have a 1700 square foot house with four kids and a kitchen and bathroom the exact same set-up and size as yours. Then I saw your picture of your little ones home schooling. We are homeschooling, too (1st and K) and are using Handwriting Without Tears (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the picture of your daughter writing in her Handwriting Without Tears book). Needless to say, I'll probably drop by and check out your blog every now and again. I hope you have a good school year!

  9. Such a cute home you have. We have lived in two houses with only one bath, one house with two, and our current house has 3.5 bathrooms. Our family of four still only use our one master bathroom. I am sure it will change as the kids grow.

    I love how you are very practical. I can learn a lot from this. πŸ™‚

  10. I'm really enjoying your living small series! I think that a small space can be such a blessing am my family and I have experienced. I thought of a "living small" post idea for you. So many people think you need an actual dedicated space or room to homeschool. Even though you are just beginning your journey as a homeschooler, I'm sure you can see that you don't need such a room. Have a great day!

  11. So cute! I think it looks fabulous. We live in France and everything here is smaller & less practical, so I totally understand this series! You should see my kids bedroom, it's tiny!! Literally only room for the beds & 1 toy chest. And you should have seen some of the kitchens we've had!! Anyway, totally cute, now off to check out the rest of the series!

  12. ok seriously girl. cannot get over your adorable floors. so much cuteness!

    i love this series for the record. way to live outside of our culture's demands.


  13. Cute cute cute! My mom grew up in a house of 5 with one bathroom. At one point there were 3 teenagers in that house! I don't know how they did it, but they just did because that's how it was back then. You just make it work.
