9 Big Ideas for Your Small Bathroom

There go the contents of your bathroom cabinet onto the floor.

As you attempt to function in a space that might as well be a closet, it can be tough to accept the size of your small bathroom.

It might not be your favorite room in the house, but your small bathroom can benefit from big ideas. You’ll be wanting to spend more time in your efficient, stylish space. Check out these tips:

  1. Light up the room

Choosing a lighter color in your bathroom will open up the space and make it appear bigger. Don’t worry about sacrificing color — you can still add your own design with towels or a shower curtain.

  1. Build in storage

Installing built-in storage under the sink, or adding shelves and niches in the shower, will give you a few extra places to set your things.

  1. Choose a glass door

Your shower takes up the bulk of your bathroom space to begin with. When you eliminate the dull shower door and opt for a glass door instead, you’ll make the room appear larger.

  1. Install a pocket door

While you’re thinking about doors, you might as well install a pocket door instead of a swinging door. Having an access point that slides into the wall will save you precious space.

  1. De-clutter your space

When you eliminate the clutter, you’ll make the space appear more welcoming and open, especially when there’s extra space to set things. Don’t overlook the importance of cleanliness and organization.

  1. Invest in a corner sink

Corner sinks are an excellent way to save space. When you place your sink in the corner, you no longer need to maneuver around it. Besides, it’ll add a unique touch to your space.

  1. Favor a shower curtain

Be sure you choose the right shower curtain or door. If your shower has a door that opens into the room, perhaps it’s time to switch to a curtain or sliding door to save space.

  1. Store things over the toilet

When it seems like you’ve run out of places to store your things, consider over-the-toilet storage. Many shelving options are available and will help you take advantage of every available inch.

  1. Expand with a mirror

Chances are you don’t have too much space to add flair to your walls. Why not incorporate a mirror? By placing a mirror on your small walls, you’ll make the space appear larger.
