Small bathrooms aren’t the easiest to work with, especially if it’s your only bathroom and you’re sharing it with one or more people. They’re usually lacking natural lighting and the layout itself isn’t always the best.

Whether it’s your spare room (powder room) or your apartment bathroom that is cramping your style, there are ways to make it look bigger without having to do any type of demolition.

Brighten Up The Place
Try to bring in as much light and color as you can. A bright room always feels more spacious.
If you can, paint the walls a new color! Or maybe just the cabinets if that’s a bit easier. If you have a window in your bathroom, utilize it to provide natural lighting.

Choose a Light Floor
Even if your walls are light, having a dark floor will throw it all off. If you keep your floors light, it will create a bright, open atmosphere.

Mirror, Mirror on The Wall
This is one of my favorite ways to make a small space look more open. The larger the mirror, the bigger the room will look. The reflected light will open your small space and make it feel more spacious.

Say Goodbye to Clutter
We all have that one drawer in our bathroom that is filled with old products that we haven’t used in years, yet we feel the need to hold onto it…just in case. You know you’re never going to use it, so just toss it. You won’t be needing that razor from 2014.

Utilize Your Walls For Storage
Utilizing your walls for storage is one of the best things you can do for space. Installing floating shelves will help to break things up a bit and will give the illusion that your bathroom is bigger than it really is. You can also get creative and put up smaller wicker baskets that can hold towels.
