1. Remove All Clutter
As a homeowner, clutter should be your number one enemy. It creates mess, stress and disorder in the home. If this is something you struggle with, then it’s time to make a change.
Every single thing in your small bath should have a place to live. Unless an item is in use or made to sit on the sink, it shouldn’t be taking up space on the counter. You have countless options for organizing and decluttering including; cabinets above the toilet, shelves, hooks, mirrors with storage and cute baskets. Decorating a small bath is a tough job. Don’t make it harder on yourself by refusing to get organized.
2. Add Natural Light
Natural light is a decorating tool that’s not only able to transform a room from drab to fab, but it’s also a free resource (once you’ve got the window in place)! Installing new windows is one way to open up your space and it’s a design upgrade worth the investment.
Many homeowners are opting to add a small, foggy window in their showers to draw in more light, or installing windows to fill bare walls. If you have a small budget then this may not be as practical of an option for you. Don’t worry, there are other tricks that’ll give you a similar result, which I’ll touch on in this article.
3. Be Choosy of Colors
Regardless of budget, a new paint job is a project we can all do. Whether you make it a DIY project or you hire a pro, it’s a task you should put at the top of your small bath decorating list.
Bright white, gray and leafy green paint are excellent choices for a tiny space. Your bathroom will appear more cheerful and look bigger with these hues. On the other hand, if you’re a fan of darker colors, then consider approaching your interior design with paint that creates a dramatic effect
4. Paint a Floral Mural
Paint not only comes in different colors, but also in various patterns and designs. I love the idea of adding an elegant stencil to your walls. Be daring and see how painting a floral mural brings new life to your bath.
If painting wall stencils isn’t your forte, then reach out and find a professional who can. You’ll not only be adding beauty to your bathroom, but you’ll be incorporating your own personal touch
5. Use Accents
The use of color or décor accents is a detail that’s often overlooked. Taking the time to carefully consider accent pieces and placement will have a great impact on the look of your bathroom.
For example, the bathroom pictured above is all about the accents. When you look at this bathroom, the first thing you probably think is how beautiful the décor flows, and not the size.
Small bathrooms are not going away. They’ll always exist and most of us will find ourselves dealing with how to make them look bigger and better at some point in our lives. Don’t let the size of your bathroom stop you from making your space look fabulous. All you have to do is recognize the potential.
