With tiny living on the rise, Americans are finding it difficult to function in small bathrooms that are a huge component of tiny living.
In fact, it seems the smaller the bathroom, the bigger the problems. However, there are some hacks you can try that can maximize your bathroom’s storage and functionality within the given space.
The Color Scheme Matters!
Closed spaces can become more claustrophobic if they’re painted with dark, striking colors. Avoid bright colors like red and blue and go for softer hues like beige or pastel mint green. Such colors create an illusion of a wider space rather than making you feel as if the walls are closing in on you.
A Class on Glass!
Glass is an excellent choice for your shower if you’re dealing with a small bathroom. Unlike shower curtains that separate the shower area from the rest of the bathroom, making it look smaller; glass can create that division without cutting down half of your space. The transparency of the glass helps your shower area become part of the rest of the bathroom, prompting the illusion of more space.
De-clutter the Floor
Try to open up your floor space. Remove additional storage units that take up extra space and replace them with wall-mounted cabinets. Clearing up space might not do much for the functionality of your bathroom but it’ll help you create the illusion of having more space than you do!
Light It Up!
If your bathroom is not lit up properly, no matter what the size; it’ll look small!
Try opening a large window or install some skylights to let some natural light in.
In case your bathroom sits in the center of your construction and doesn’t have much in the way of natural light, try recessed lighting. It’ll open up space and make it all around brighter!
Mirrors and their reflective properties are known for creating the illusion of a wider space! Placing a mirror right across from your vanity sink will make your bathroom look twice as big as it is!

Even after, going through the trouble of de-cluttering and lighting up the bathroom space, it’s possible that the bathroom still doesn’t function for you. That’s because it wasn’t built for you! Or maybe it was, but over time you’ve changed and so have your preferences in needs.
