One of the most appealing things about the traditional bathroom is clutter gives it more of a lived-in effect, thus enhancing the traditional look. Dont be afraid to put plenty of pictures on the walls - black and white family portraits in gold frames are a good look. A chest of drawers or corner table with scented candles, aromatherapy oils or flowers will really bring the room to life. As a finishing touch an old style set of weighing scales, a large framed mirror or bulky traditional radiator will give the room that cozy old-fashioned feel.
It is true that using wood is a conventional style but it can strike well with certain modern bathroom interiors, giving the entire atmosphere an exotic look and feel. However, you should never use normal or mildly treated wood for flooring. They will be damaged due to water exposure. So I would recommend that you use well coated wood protected with lamination. Nevertheless, some people feel the entire idea of having wood is not a hygienic option. For them, designer tiles are the best alternative.
Full bathroom - includes toilet, sink, and combination tub/shower plumbed along one wall. Typical dimensions are 5x7 or 5x8 feet. Half bathroom - includes sink and toilet only. It can be placed on the main floor of your home to reduce the morning rush, and the family doesnt have to go upstairs to use the toilet. Common dimensions are between 3x6 and 4x5 feet, about the size of a smaller closet.
Having a window installed in your bathroom and allowing natural light inside will only make your room more spacious. This is free and you can freely use it to your advantage. But be sure to not make your window too big. It will only defeat the purpose of conserving wall space. Now that you have those things, you are now ready for small bathroom design. Now is the time to get your color scheme done and put up the accessories. Your room is bigger now and you can just choose a theme and implement it. With that, I wish you luck in your small bathroom remodeling endeavor.
You may also think of installing a wall mounted sink and floating cupboards. This will eliminate them from taking too much floor space. Also, you can utilize the floor for other purposes such as putting a trash can or a plant.
