From creative storage options, smart finishes and some detailing, there is a basketful of ideas to make a small bathroom look extravagant. Here are a few of our top tricks to make your small bathroom look glamorous.
Mirrors Can Do Wonders
Mirrors in a small bathroom elevate the style quotient threefolds and create the illusion of space. This is an age-old secret used by most interior designers. Double the look and feel of your bathroom with a mirror. It is especially useful if you have a narrow bathroom. Mirrors also reflect light and make your small bathroom nice and bright. See how this square shaped mirror framed in wood automatically gives you a feeling of space? Yes, that’s what we are talking about!
Wall Mounted Toilets Save Floor Space
If you have enough wall space in your bathroom a wall-mounted toilet tank can save both the floor space and legroom. This type of toilet hides plumbing related hardware because of the absence of a flush tank. Wall-mounted toilets instantly bring in sleek, clean aesthetics to small bathrooms. Also a floating commode leaves you room below to show off patterned tiles seamlessly.
Why Only The Toilet, Your Sink Can Float Too
As with wall-mounted toilets, wall-mounted washbasins are an excellent way to save floor space to make your small bathroom look larger. If you need extra storage space, then a floating vanity trolley like the one in this image gives you a dedicated place to stack all your essential toiletries. A sink atop uses this side of the wall judiciously. It is easy for a small bathroom to look cluttered. Opt for flat panelled cabinets for its sleek and streamlined design.
Small Bathroom Cabinets For Extra Storage
Since the bathroom is where you clean and wash up, it only makes sense to make it the freshest space in your home. By this we mean clutter-free basins, neatly hung towels, and no water stains. Give everything a dedicated space — makeup, toiletries, dry towels, and more — with cabinets like this that are just right for a small bathroom. Choose a cabinet design built with multiple drawers, and cupboards to organise your things that are otherwise displayed on countertops.
Rip Of The Shower Curtain, Add A Glass Panel
Let’s be honest here – nobody likes the idea of a shower curtain. Not only does it stick to your body during a shower they also lose their colour and sheen over time. Shower curtains also make bathrooms look smaller as it closes off one-third of the area visually. Swap your shower curtain with a lustrous glass panel to open up your bathroom and allow more light into your shower. Just make sure you avoid sliding glass panels that require bottom and top racks as they are hard to clean.
- Remove the bathtub as they take up twice the amount of space compared to standing showers

- If you need a bathtub for your kids then go for a low one as it makes getting in and out easier
