8. Light-Wood-and-Black BeautyDesigner: Eneia WhiteLocation: Upper East Side of Manhattan, New YorkSize: 35 square feet (3.3 square metres); 5 by 7 feetHomeowners’ request. A fresh yet classic bathroom that would include matte black fixtures and penny tiles. Space saver. “After accounting for door clearances and switch locations, the standard-size towel bar wasn’t an option,” designer Eneia White says. “We opted for bath towel hooks to free up wall space and keep the walls feeling clean and uncluttered.”Special features. A walnut vanity with a lacquer finish to protect from moisture. White penny tile and white grout on the wall. Wood-look shower tiles. Wall-mounted faucet. Recessed medicine cabinet. Designer tip. “Without any natural light from windows, bathrooms can get a little gloomy and heavy depending on tile selection,” White says. “Generally, your darkest tile should go on the floor, personality tiles should be used as accents and your classic tile should be used as your main tile. This combination leaves room for balanced personality.”“Uh-oh” moment. “When the wood shower tiles arrived, we were expecting grey tones,” White says. “Some of the tiles looked grey; others looked much more brown. We opened every box and sorted through each tile to review the colours and veining. After creating piles of tile that matched our vanity finish, we designated those for installation and opted to use the brown stash for waste.” Find a bathroom designer near youRead more:5 Small, Clever Bathroom DesignsSolutions to 9 Big Problems in Small BathroomsTell us:What are your tips for maximising space in a small bathroom?

I like the tile used in this shower. It's simple and clean looking but has some warmth in the color. I like the fixtures as well

Vanity (I don’t like the faucets out of the wall)
