Three Tips to Make a Small Bathroom Look and Feel Bigger

Make your bathroom appear twice as large with these three clever visual tricks

Poor lighting will make a small bathroom feel even more cramped than it already is.

Luckily, with glare-free, balanced natural light and creative visual placements, you can quickly and easily transform your dark and dreary bathroom.


Tip #1: Take the Tile in the Shower up to the Ceiling

Again, the key to making any small bathroom look bigger is to eliminate as many visual obstructions as you can. For a seamless look, always take the shower tile all the way up to the ceiling.

Tip #2: Use Frameless Glass for Your Shower

Frameless glass shower doors are superior to shower curtains for many reasons. They’re splash proof, they have great ROI and they remove the visual obstruction of the curtain and make the bathroom feel large, open and airy.

But remember, this only applies to clear glass shower doors – textured glass can make a bathroom feel like it has an extra wall.
