Small bathrooms appear more airy and spacious with light-colored walls, such as white, yellow or beige. To enhance the natural light in bathrooms, use translucent window treatments, such as sheer curtains, and a translucent shower curtain.
Decorative styles that lend themselves to sleek designs give small areas more space. With its clean lines and basic patterns, modern decor is minimalist enough for a small bathroom. Country and rustic styles also have elements that do not protrude into precious bathroom space.
Lighting is essential, but it can also be utilized to create a sense of openness in a small room. Illuminate the space over the sink to create an instant room opener. Lights placed over and under cabinets light up usually dark areas, creating depth in the area.
A shelf provides extra room for items that might clutter another area. Hanging cabinets offer even more space, with the ability to hide what is inside.
