Bathroom Organization In Narrow Spaces-The Linear Method
Well yes, I do agree that there are basic spacial parameters that need to be followed while designing a space but in case you bring in some ingenuity you can be given room to cheat. The WC and the washbasin can easily be accommodated on the smaller wall of the bathroom. One can choose to use a slightly smaller vanity and place the mirror in the center for a more symmetrical look. And who says that it will lead to a cluttered look. Just have a look at the image below:)

Storage Above The Bathtub
The area opposite the shower installation in the bathtub space can provide some precious storage space too. Since the plumbing requirements in that part of the wall are nonexistent one can think of making the walls thinner in some parts so as to give rise to shallow niches that can store bathroom essentials.
