RV Bathroom Design
An RV bathroom remodel you have to see to believe. Open shelving, copper accents and a luxury walk-in shower give this tiny RV bathroom a light and airy feel.
A special thanks to Signature Hardware, Sinkology and Cascade Iron Co. for providing products for this space!
I am so excited to share our RV bathroom makeover reveal with you today! It may be the tiniest room makeover you’ve ever seen, but trust me – it’s a good one!
You may have seen some of the behind the scenes of this transformation over on Instagram (and I’d love for you to follow along here if you don’t already!), but today I’m spilling all the details of our RV bathroom remodel. Note: all sources are listed at the bottom of the post!
My goal with this space was to keep it simple & functional, yet pretty at the same time.
Since we didn’t have a lot of room to work with in this RV bathroom shower combo, choosing an efficient layout was crucial! We chose to keep the original layout with one BIG change: that RV shower had to go.
(Affiliate links are provided below for convenience. For more information see my disclosure, here.)
By choosing the world’s tiniest vanity and moving the toilet over a few inches, we were able to make room for a spacious walk-in shower!
To live in an RV full-time, you have to make some sacrifices. But being that both Mike and I are over 5’10”, a cramped RV shower was not something we were willing to deal with for an extended amount of time.
So we did what we do best and DIY’d the shower of our dreams. (At least our RV dreams 😉 )
RV Walk-in Shower
A 40″ x 40″ shower pan fit perfectly for the shower floor. The shower walls are thin Formica laminate sheets that we adhered to the walls with a specialized construction adhesive designed for shower walls. We then caulked all of the seams and added trim pieces to give it a finished look.
Although I love the functionality of our new walk-in shower, hands down my favorite detail in this RV bathroom remodel is the beautiful oil-rubbed bronze shower hardware.
I was so excited to partner with Signature Hardware to give this bathroom some much needed love. The shower head and faucet handles, as well as the neo-angle curtain rod, are all from Signature Hardware and I couldn’t be happier with how they look in the space.
One of my goals with this RV makeover was to bring the comforts of a house into this tiny home on wheels. Adding beautiful, high quality hardware in the bathroom really helped accomplished this.
I love how the exposed piping is the first thing that catches your eye when you walk in. You almost forget that you’re in an RV! Almost. 😉
RV Bathroom Sink
Oh, and the Pfister faucet.
By choosing a vessel style sink we were able to have a large sink bowl without compromising any of the cabinet space in the small vanity. I love how the copper fixtures really pop against all of the white in this space.
I really wanted to warm up this space and keep it from feeling too sterile, and decided open shelving with a few of my favorite decor pieces was the best way to do that.
The shelves were an easy DIY. We simply cut down a 1″ x 6″ board to create two shelves that perfectly fit the narrow wall space. After applying my favorite Minwax wood stain and sealant, we hung them on the wall using these modern shelf brackets generously provided by Cascade Iron Co.

All of my shelf decor items were things I already owned. I love how they instantly add some life to our tiny bathroom.

I used the same wood crate from our farmhouse half bath in our old house to hold a few rolls of toilet paper on the back of the toilet. This actually worked out really well since this bathroom ended up being too small for any sort of toilet paper roll holder!
Even though this RV bathroom remodel gave us the biggest headache during this RV renovation, I am beyond happy with how it all turned out.
I really couldn’t have asked for a better RV remodel before and after…
