4 Ways to Ease Into a Small Bathroom
Having a small bathroom can become a pain but it doesn’t have to be with these tips
If you’ve moved into a home with a tiny bathroom and have no budget for a renovation or mini makeover, you can try these simple tips to make it seem more spacious and functional.
We have a certain tendency to fill our bathrooms with unnecessary items such as different shampoo bottles, loads of beauty products, extra toilet paper, and what not.
To make your bathroom look less cluttered, keep everything at a minimum. Find a place where you can store your extra toiletries if you must have them. Consider installing wall mounted shelves where you can keep towels and other essentials.

If the space is limited, finding the right place for everything may be a challenge. Try out different storage techniques that will suit your space.
You may add baskets nearby where you can keep towels and bottles. While bending down may be hard—especially for the elderly, having a "supply station" will make it easier for everyone to get what they need.
Check the area behind your door or use the unused overhead space. The possibilities are quite limitless, you just have to look.

A lot of times, small bathrooms have terrible lighting. You’re lucky to find a compact bathroom with more than one light source—even luckier if you have a window that let’s in natural light.
But in any case, you’re going to want to set up ample lighting in the space to illuminate every nook and cranny. This is so your bathroom looks bright, clean, and spacious as opposed to dingy and cramped.

Even if you can’t actually make your bathroom bigger through renovation, you can give the illusion of a bigger space with a few simple tricks. One tip is to install your shower curtain rod higher up so your ceiling looks higher. Another is to make use of a clear plastic shower curtain so you’re not cutting off the space.
Larger mirrors can also make the space look bigger and it will spread light throughout as well. There are several small edits you can do, just find what’s right for your space.
