10 Ways To Make A Small Bathroom Look Bigger

Small bathrooms don’t have to be dark and contrary to popular belief, making a small bathroom appear larger is not as hard as it seems.

Here are 10 ways to make a small bathroom look bigger:

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

Lighten Up

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

Remove Barriers

Open up the room with shelves instead of cabinets to give the feeling of more space.

Monotone Decorating

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

Negative Space

Consider using a pedestal sink which takes less space than traditional cabinets.


Find locations out of sight for toiletry and personal items keeping the counter area as clear as possible.

Heads Up

Use the vertical space in the room too, tall cabinets provide storage and add interest to the room.

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.

Pocket Doors

Where you have room, use pocket doors or popular barn sliding doors to add extra space inside the bathroom.


Clear glass shower doors are a great way to remove a visual barrier and make the room seem larger.
