If your bathroom is too small for you, you can make it look larger without having to spend a lot of money. Below are some ways you can do this so you can get started. You will be surprised to see how much of a difference this makes when you are finished.


You can use something as simple as a mirror to make your bathroom appear larger. The trick is where you place the mirror on the wall. You do not want the mirror to reflect something like the shower or toilet but instead something beautiful. You should make the mirror the focal point when someone walks into the bathroom. Mirrors stretch things out in your bathroom making the room appear longer or wider.

Find mirrors at thrift stores to save money with unique fames or shapes. You could purchase several smaller mirrors instead of one large mirror, and arrange them together to make them noticeable.


If you currently have old cabinets in your bathroom, you should purchase new ones. There are types of cabinets that can make your room appear larger. For example, if you currently have darker cabinets, purchase lighter ones to make the room more open.

If you have a lot of cabinets in the bathroom they take up a lot of space. Consider removing all of them and install only one or two new cabinets.

Suspended cabinets, which hang from the ceiling, can work well. This allows you to have even more storage space underneath them so you can get things out of the way and unseen.

If you need all the cabinet space, choose longer cabinets instead of wider ones so they do not take up as space.


Let some natural light into the bathroom to make it appear more open. If the bathroom has a window with a shutter or curtains remove them. You can still have some privacy by covering the window with a translucent window shade. This lets light in but people would not be able to see through the window.

If you do not have a window in your bathroom, you can install solotubes or a type of skylight to bring in natural light into the bathroom.  There is lighting that you can put in the shower. This works great if you have a shower that has glass doors.
