Most of us would like to make our small bathrooms look bigger. After all, bathrooms are often the smallest rooms in the house. Yet it's vital they functions well and, because we go there to relax, we want them to look great, too.

If you're wondering how to make a small bathroom look bigger, these small bathroom ideas will help you add both style and function.

1. Keep Your Colours Light

One of the easiest ways to give your room a spacious look is to use lots of white — white tile, white paint, a white vanity and so on. This noncolor-color naturally recedes, making the space look bigger. It also reflects any available light, rather than absorbing it.

2. Use a Floating Vanity

A floating vanity is a good option. It gives you lots of room to store daily essentials, but the peek of flooring underneath makes the area feel a notch more open. In a very small bathroom, having a little bit more room to plant your feet can make a big difference.


Using large mirrors above the vanity can produce a lofty effect by filling the space and creating an optical illusion with its reflections. But make sure that there is an adequate background to be reflected in the mirror.

Also you can install a decorative pendant light in front of a mirror, because by placing a light source close to the mirror, it will reflect the light back into the room. This intensifies the overall brightness of your space, making it feel more spacious.

4. Use a Glass Panel

Another great way to expand the look of your bathroom is by replacing a shower curtain with a glass panel or door. The entire square footage of the room will be visible at once for a bigger look, especially when you’re in the shower.

If you prefer more privacy, you can use a frosted or tinted glass panel, which will still allow a lot of light to filter through so your shower experience feels less cramped.

5. Backlight the Mirror

Backlight is important to making any space look big and open. In bathrooms, which often don’t have much natural light available, so it’s especially important. Plus, in a bathroom, you need good lighting to do things such as shave or apply makeup effectively, so its importance can’t be overstated.

6. Add a Shower Niche

Another major space saver is adding a shower niche. If you’re designing a small bathroom, make sure to include a shower niche.

7. Hide Storage behind Mirrors

Wall cabinets are often necessary when it comes to bathroom storage ideas, but to keep the space feeling streamlined, why not double up with a mirrored wall cabinet?

8. Play with Tile Styles

Clever tile ideas can be used to create an interesting scheme whilst keeping things light, you can mix and match tile designs successfully.
