From updated fixtures and smart paint colors to innovative storage solutions, there are plenty of ways to give your space a fresh, new look. Keep reading for our top picks! Sprucing up your small bathroom doesn’t have to be a big project – with these tips, you can easily make it feel brand new. Let’s get started!

Utilize storage to add functionality while keeping the space open

It seems we always need more storage in bathrooms, especially small bathrooms. Opt for a vanity with drawers or cabinetry to store items underneath your sink. Pedestal sinks create a lot of space that you can’t really use, but floating sinks allow you to add shelving underneath. You can place a large basket for towels underneath the floating sink or install built-in shelving.

The space around your toilet also offers the potential for more storage. Installing floating shelves above your toilet is a great way to use some of this “dead” space. Using a natural wood or light color for the shelves can also help make the room open and bright. Additionally, you can extend your vanity’s countertop over the back of the toilet to create more space for your products and must-haves.

Paint your walls a light color – white or cream will make the room look larger

If you want to make a small bathroom appear larger, consider painting your walls a light color. White or cream walls will fill the room with natural light, making it feel inviting and open. Moreover, when used as a background for darker furnishings and accessories, white or cream walls can cleverly highlight the beauty of small decorative details. The trick is to find the right balance between bright and bold colors that don’t overwhelm the small space yet still create an atmosphere of style and sophistication.

Add a large mirror to reflect light and create the illusion of more space

If you’re looking to give your small bathroom a remodel and want to create the illusion of more space, adding a large mirror is a great way to start. Mirrors can reflect light and make small spaces appear larger than they are. Choosing a stunning frame for the large mirror and incorporating other decorative accessories will help bring the small room together. 

Alternatively, you can make an entire wall a mirrored surface to really open up the space. You don’t need to install the mirror from floor to ceiling; you can install it above wainscoting or another type of molding, for example.

Use lighting to brighten up the small bathroom

Bringing natural light into your small bathroom through skylights or windows can help make the room feel bigger. But if you don’t have the ability to add natural exposures, you can still use lighting to your advantage. Choose recessed lighting or wall sconces over lights that hang from the ceiling. These can make the space feel smaller than it is. Additionally, match the metal of your lighting fixtures to the other hardware in your room to create a cohesive, top-of-the-line look.

Ensure doors don’t take up unwanted space

Small bathrooms can be hard to navigate, especially if you live with your family. Make sure that your doors don’t take up more space than they have to. If your bathroom door opens into the room, try installing it the other way, so you have more usable floor space. Or, install a sliding or barn door to save even more space.

Additionally, showers with sliding doors will work better in small spaces than those with hinged doors that open into the bathroom. Using a shower curtain is another option. Choose patterns and colors that help make the space feel brighter, such as light neutrals or big prints, rather than dark or busy designs. 

Install new fixtures – updated hardware can make a big difference in the overall look of your bathroom

If you’re considering a small bathroom remodel, installing new fixtures is one of the easiest ways to refresh the space. Updated hardware can perform a small miracle in your bathroom – bright brass or sleek chrome towel holders and toilet paper racks can add a modern touch while augmenting their functions. An interesting light fixture will add personality to the room, making it unique and personalized to your taste. Despite the small scale of such changes, they can make a big difference in the overall look of your bathroom quickly and cost-effectively.

Get rid of any clutter – clear off countertops and shelves, and put away any unnecessary items

Having clutter around can be an unwelcome sight and make it hard to keep the house tidy and well-organized. Removing unnecessary items, such as knick-knacks, extra appliances or tchotchkes that are taking up space on counters or shelves clears your environment and injects some freshness into the home. Taking just a few moments to clear away excess items can help achieve a sense of calm within your living space. 

In conclusion, 2023 is the perfect year to take the plunge on that small bathroom remodel. With a few creative solutions and ideas, you can make your space look bigger, brighter, and more stylish.
