How to Make Your Bathroom Look Bigger

Do you have a cramped and hard-to-navigate bathroom?

If so, chances are you’ve learned to live with it, even if you’d rather not. And yet, what if you could work with that very same space and make it feel and look more spacious? It sure beats “blowing it up” and starting all over again, especially when budget is a concern.

Here are a few suggestions that might just appeal to you:


Use the same – or mostly the same – color throughout

Replace dark paint color with something lighter and brighter for an immediate feeling of added space. If, however, you’re a fan of contrasts, consider a new object, like a low cabinet or new light fixture. Whatever it happens to be, it will stand out against a background of neutrality.

Let Light In

Windows are great ways to make a room look bigger, so don’t cover them with dark, opaque shades. Instead, invest in frosted windows or sheer curtains.


Mirrors reflect light on bathroom surfaces and can create the illusion of more space. Instead of hanging a tiny mirror above the sink, use multiple mirrors or cover one whole wall to add depth in a narrow bathroom.

Floating Furniture

If you absolutely rely on drawers to hide your clutter, consider a floating vanity – one with no legs. Floating vanities attach to the wall and keep your floors clear.

Pedestal Sinks

These take up very little room and look fantastic. Once in place, install an open glass-door cabinet beside it for storage. You’ll get more storage than you would in a low-profile vanity.
