1. Install A Pedestal Sink

One of the largest pieces of “furniture” in a bathroom is the vanity where the sink is usually installed. To save square footage in your small bathroom, completely remove the whole vanity and install a pedestal sink. These types of sinks take up very little room and will drastically increase the square footage in your bathroom and will make your room look much larger.

2. Make Your Shower See-Through

Anything that will break up the eye as you look around your bathroom like a shower curtain or heavy shower door will make the room look much smaller. In order to avoid this, try installing a completely smooth glass shower door so it looks almost as if there’s nothing even there. If doing so is not in your budget, try putting up a clear shower curtain where people’s eyes will still be able to look through it as if it’s not even there. If you really don’t want to have a clear shower curtain, choose a very light color and leave it as open as possible so it looks like it’s not even there.

3. Hang Shower Curtains As High As Possible

A wonderful way to trick the eye into thinking your small bathroom is much bigger than it really is is to hang your shower curtain as high as possible. Many people have learned this valuable lesson in their home when it comes to curtains in other rooms. The higher they are hung, the taller and larger the room looks. The same will go for your shower curtain. If you hang it almost as high as the ceiling it will make a large impact and make the room look so much bigger. You may have to buy an extra long shower liner and shower curtain, but I assure you that the impact will be worth the extra money you have to spend.
