  3. Going Bold

    Tiny-bathroom-momspark

    Who says a tiny bath can't make a large statement? Despite its tight quarters, this small loo is given a decidedly decorative lift with its two-toned whale-patterned wallpaper. While you might think that dark colors make a room appear smaller, they actually can take the focus off its size and onto far more interesting design elements.

    Slide4

    This bathroom is mostly unadorned, apart from one striking design element—the tile. The black linear tile ascends from the floor up the back wall of the shower, creating a streamlined, modern look.

  5. Nooks and Crannies

    Slide5

    Tiny bathrooms need an extra dose of creative planning, and dead wall space beside—or above—the toilet should not go to waste. Add several narrow shelves to maximize your storage options. Secure wall brackets to mount traditional shelves or consider floating shelves for a sleeker look.

    For a very narrow bathroom, add a mirror to the tub's built-in side panel to make it appear larger. Keep other décor to a minimum to avoid muddling the effect.

  10. Framed!

    Slide9

    One creative and easy way to make a cozy bathroom feel bigger is to add a dramatic built-in shelf unit next to—or around—the door. This does more than maximize storage space in an area that’s usually left untouched; it also draws your eyes upward to make the room feel larger.

  11. Put a Lid on It

    Slide10

    Toilets often can look like a clunky eyesore in a small bathroom. Building a simple custom shelf over the top of the toilet adds an eye-catching design element, lessening the focus on the porcelain throne while adding an extra spot to showcase crafts or collectibles.
