Do you have a small bathroom and would you like to make it feel and appear bigger? Here are some handy tips to create a more spacious bathroom.

Choosing the right bathroom furniture can provide a well-organized bathroom. For this reason, be sure to choose bathroom furniture that may be shallow and long. Make sure that the bathroom furniture is between 38 centimeters and 45 centimeters deep.
Tip 3: Create transparency
It is logical that you would want privacy when you are showering. However, this has a big disadvantage when you have a small bathroom.

The bigger your mirror, the larger your bathroom will appear. If you really want to create a lot of space, you can opt for a mirror from the ceiling to floor. A square mirror creates a clean look and a round mirror provides a playful effect.
Tip 6: Keep it calm
Keeping the bathroom clutter-free and organized is very important, to maximize available space. The less junk in sight, the fresher and more luxurious your bathroom will seem. Therefore, try to store your belongings in cupboards and opt for a closed laundry basket.
Tip 7: Proper use of floor tiles
