This is probably one of the most important steps if not the most important steps in making  your bathroom feel bigger than it actually is. You do not want to make your bathroom cluttered with unnecesarry things. If you have an absurdly tiny bathroom consider taking anything out of it that you don’t absolutely need in there. For instance don’t keep your makeup in your bathroom. Although this may sound reductive it can actually help. Makeup can pile up quickly on a bathroom counter and make even big counters look cluttered and small. Instead put your makeup in your room so that way you can get ready outside of your bathroom.

7. Light Colors

Do not pick dark colors for a small bathroom. Dark decor will only eat up light in the bathroom and make it appear smaller than it actually is. Go for light bathtowels, rugs and light shower curtains.

9. Bright Lighting

Make sure that you aren’t using soft lighting, go for vibrant white lights. Or you can even invest in a pair of smart bulbs that you can control. Just make sure they are white.

10. Keep Windows Open

If you have a bathroom that has access to natural light do not overlook it. If you’re afraid to expose it all in front of an open window, which is mostly everyone, consider putting a frosting coat on the window that people would be able to see it through. There are piece of papaer you can apply to windows or you can even spray it a little. It may warp the way that light comes in a little but it’s still better than light struggling to get through a pair of blinds.
