You love them, so here we are with another roundup of what we loved the most in 2016 and today we're looking at small but impactful bathrooms

Proving that a small space is nothing to sniff at, bathroom designers went above and beyond over the last 12 months and created some of the loveliest and most inspiring bathrooms we've ever seen. So much so in fact, that had we been in possession of large bathrooms, we would have wished we weren't! 

If you missed any of these the first time around, enjoy all the inspiration they have to offer and think about how you might like to change up your bathroom next year.

1. Space-age florals

This water closet had us going crazy for metallic wallpaper, floral patterns and upcycled furniture, as the sink plinth is an old sewing machine treadle table. 

Small but beautiful, this really stayed with us!

2. Rustic heaven

Everything about this small bathroom appealed to us, from the sheepskin rug to the freestanding tub and those shabby chic clad walls.

What a way to make a whole lot more of not a lot.

3. Bright and beautiful

We loved how the natural light in this bathroom made a seriously big impact on the space and how well the materials had been chosen. 

The marble floor simply reflects the light and clever additions, like a heated towel rail, maximised the room.

4. Simple and quaint

This bathroom showed us that you don't need a big space to have a glamorous one, with a copper freestanding tub and ornate mirror making the room come alive! 

5. Pared back simplicity

Polished concrete came into its own in 2016 and this small bathroom shows exactly why! Simple yet full of charm and character, it made light work of finishing this space perfectly. 

Love all those diving walls!

6. Mosaic marvel

Some people would have you believe that you can't experiment with some fabulous patterns in a small bathroom, but then we saw this one. 

The mosaic tiles are amazing and make a real feature of the tub, while simple furnishings and a delicious wall colour keep the rest of the space uncluttered.

7. Monochrome on our mind

Now we see it again, we remember why we loved this bathroom so much. It borders on industrial but then, out of nowhere, the monochrome patterned tiles give it a new direction and take it straight to style city.

8. A lot in a small space

We loved the inspiring use of space in this bathroom that showed you really can have a bathtub in a small room, if you rethink your angles. 

A diagonal bath makes for a far more usable layout, then add a simple wall finish and nothing looks too busy.

9. Perfectly pretty

Small it may be, but this bathroom, with its simple layout and easy fee,l really touched our hearts. The inset shelving, single mirror and use of natural materials here did it for us!

10. With a view

This bathroom is by no means huge but we really loved the idea of a large window with frosted glass for privacy. The wall-mounted sink and long but narrow shower was a revelation.

11. A sunny spot

Who could forget this zingy little bathroom, with its bold use of colour and simple fixtures? It made us smile every time we saw it and that definitely earned it a place in our best of the year.

Also, it's bang on trend for next year as yellow looks set to be huge!

12. Tactile and terrific

Our final choice is this sweet little pebbled room, as the thought of stepping out of the tub onto the naturally massaging floor made us go weak at the knees. 

Rustic and pretty, the use of wood, white and natural stone made it a clear winner!
