Small bathrooms don’t have to be dark and dank. Contrary to popular belief, making a small bathroom appear larger is not as hard as it seems. Here are 10 easy ways to quickly make a small bathroom look bigger. 


1. Mirrors – Add larger mirrors to reflect light and provide the illusion of space. 

2. Lighten Up – Lighting doesn’t have to be harsh, but adequate lighting is a must. 

3. Remove Barriers – Open up the room with clear glass shower doors or shelves. 

4. Monotone Decorating – Use the same light colors on walls, countertops, floors and cabinetry to allow for the eyes to flow through the space. 

5. Negative Space – Consider using a pedestal sink which takes less space than traditional cabinets. 

6. Declutter – Find locations out of sight for toiletry items. 

7. Heads Up – Use the vertical space in the room too, tall cabinets provide storage and add interest to the room. 8. Store Mats and Towels – Keep towels and floor mats out of sight unless in use. A simple hand towel in a complementary color tone is all most guests need. 9. Pocket Doors – Where you have room, use pocket doors                              or popular barn sliding doors to add extra space inside the bathroom. 

10. Glass – Clear glass shower doors is a great way to remove a visual barrier and make the room seem larger.
