7. The More Mirrors, The Better
Most bathrooms have at least one mirror, but if your small bathroom does not have one, install one now! Mirrors are pivotal in making any room appear larger. They will reflect more light which will make the room seem brighter, and thus larger. They also trick the eye into thinking that there is more space beyond the mirror. It almost makes the eye think there there is a window there. If you can hang more than one mirror, then by all means hang more! You can also use mirrored decorative pieces like vases and trays to reflect more light. Like I said, the more mirrors, the better.

8. Less Is More With Decorations
When it comes to decorating your small bathroom, less is certainly more. You don’t want to clutter the space with lots of decorations. The more clutter there is, the more the room will feel like it is closing in on itself. Keep decorations at a minimum. You can actually decorate with functional items such as putting cotton swabs and cotton balls in pretty jars and vases or putting hand soap in beautiful containers.

9. Use a Floating Vanity
Every inch counts in a small bathroom, including the space to squeeze your tootsies under the sink. When you absoultely need the storage that comes with a vanity, thinking floating style. The space underneath gives the feeling of a larger bathroom while providing all the function that comes with enclosed cabinets.
10. Get rid of small accessories and clutter
Give the appearance of more space by cutting back on small accessories that tend to look more cluttered than design-savvy. Focus on one larger piece of artwork, just the basics on the counters and store the rest away.
