  • A Coat of Paint: A new coat of paint can really enhance the look of your bathroom. It’s best to keep paint shades light as bathrooms tend to be small. Light-colored paint will make the room look larger and it will serve as a reflective surface so you will be able to see what you’re doing.
  • Storage: The right storage can also make your space look larger. Think of storing items vertically rather than horizontally. A tall, thin shelving unit can make all the difference.
  • Mirrors: Mirrors are a great addition to the bathroom as they bring in light and give the illusion of spaciousness. They also allow you to see yourself from multiple angles making self-care easy.
