Good news! Small bathrooms don’t have to be that dreaded room in the house. With a few quick tricks and smart tactics, that crowded space of your bathroom will feel extra luxurious! Also, a tiny bathroom means a smaller expense, so it is not such a hit on your wallet to renovate it every once in a while.
1. Install an Atypical Door
Not one that swings into the bathroom, taking up unnecessary space. Opt for an option like a sliding door on hinges. It’s a cute and unique way to add a bit of flair to the house!
2. Choose a vanity wisely
Built-in vanities often take up too much space. However, a vintage, leggy piece of furniture offers a spacious alternative to the standard bulky countertops.
3. Keep the whole bathroom the same color
And tone genre – even the ceiling! For splashes of color, pick accessories and sneaky storage spaces, like gluing colored paper to the bottom of a pullout drawer. For smooth transitions between tile, floor, and walls, use similar colors, maybe a shade or two off.
4. Plenty of natural light is a necessity!
Don’t block any windows, and strategically place mirrors (lots or mirrors!) around the room for an illusion of a giant space.
5. A transparent glass door to the shower
This is a great idea since a closed-off shower crams the room. However, a swinging door cramps the small room even further. Choose a shower curtain, a sliding door, or our favorite – a half-glass panel.

8. Install a magnetic strip
To keep bobby pins and other metal things off of the counter. Why didn’t we think of that sooner?
9. Towel bars don’t have to take over an entire wall
Instead, place them above the sink, on the door or above the toilet! Speaking of above the toilet, why not install a short floating shelf? It won’t get in your way, and is a convenient option for keeping things uncluttered.
10. Love bold prints?
Design an eye-catching floor with solid walls, or use the small bathroom space for a fun creation. Where else in the house can you pull off such bizarre art?
Whatever you choose, know that your small bathroom can be incredibly luxurious with the help of some hard work, loving care, and a few handy hints.
