5 small bathroom ideas you can use to transform your space

If having a small bathroom seems like a curse, don’t worry. You can make the most out of your space with just a few simple ideas.

Go vertical

If you’re running out of room, one of the last things you want to do is clutter up what little counterspace you do have.

That’s why you’ll want to go vertical.

Add in floating shelving to hold your bathroom trinkets, like makeup or small mirrors, so that you free up usable space below. To really add a chic touch, you can move your items into glass storage containers (even old candle jars).

Use paint to open the room up

Swap out your current paint for something that brightens up the room.

You can even c
hoose to have a fun “feature wall“, potentially the one where your sink is, to contrast with the rest of your bathroom and create an open focal point.

Colors like a very light gray, lavender, or powder blue can often make a space look bigger than it is.

Add in a large mirror

Swapping out a smaller mirror for one that’s large and framed can make your bathroom look bigger than it is.

Mirrors reflect light and give you the illusion of more space to get ready with, that way you’re not fighting for mirror space in the morning rush before school and work!

Improve your lighting

When your bathroom is already small and has bad lighting, it’s guaranteed to feel like a cave.

Avoid this by modernizing your bathroom lighting with recessed lights or updated fixtures.

A well-lit bathroom can open a space up and illuminate the available counter or floor space.

Avoid shower curtains

Making a small bathroom feel bigger means that you want to open things up as much as possible.

That’s why you choose colors that will brighten the room, mirrors to reflect more light and expand the space, and lighting to really bring everything together.

Shower curtains do the exact opposite of this. They’re bulky, out-dated, and take away your shower space from the rest of the bathroom.

In a bathroom that’s already small, swapping a shower curtain out for glass doors or frameless doors can make all the difference in opening up the space.
