Be Consistent With Patterns

Create Storage As a Focal Point

Filling a blank wall with open shelving maximizes storage and function while keeping the space feeling light. Make your space even more functional by adding baskets or other found objects you may have throughout your home.

Take Tile All the Way

Floor-to-ceiling tile can help a space feel larger by adding continuity, like in this design by Joseph Pubillones. The floating vanity gives a light feeling and frees up floor space visually, while keeping the colors neutral further expands the space. Photo by Daniel Newcomb

Be Bold Yet Simple With Color

Bold colors and textures can actually make a small space feel larger. Using one bold color, balanced with neutrals — like in this design by Gary Lee Partners — is one way to do it. Keeping the bold color glossy makes it feel brighter, visually stretching the space. Photo by Nathan Kirkman

Textures Add Interest

The textured tile used in this small bathroom by Amelie de Gaulle adds depth and impact to the space, while the reflective quality of it tricks your eye, making the space feel larger. Taking the tile floor to ceiling again unifies the room, creating even more visual space.

Use Vertical Space

Add function and style by utilizing wasted vertical space. Adding shelves above the toilet maximizes the space in this small-bathroom design by Erica Islas.

Mix Textures Within a Color Scheme

Mix and match tile choices to add visual interest to small spaces, but keep elements monochromatic like in this bathroom design by Erica Islas. Keeping the color consistent makes the space feel unified.

Add Reflective Surfaces

Use reflective materials such as mirrors and stainless steel to visually expand small bathrooms, like in this design by Belmont Freeman. Using frameless glass for the shower divider helps merge the areas and make it feel roomy.

Build Storage

Building shelving into the wall can add a charming detail, while adding ultimate functionality like in this design by Gail Drury. Using a reflective, textured wall treatment adds sparkle; moving light around the space tricks your eye into thinking it is larger.

Free Up Floor Space

Using a wall-mounted vanity and sink frees up floor space, making a small bathroom feel spacious while remaining functional. In this design by Marie Burgos, the frameless glass shower door again helps to make the space feel more continuous.

Mirror a Wall

Available in a wide variety of styles and materials, corner bathroom vanities can match just about any bathroom design. Whether your bath space is a hyper-modern affair full of sharp angles and simple, efficient surfaces or a romantic, elegant, Victorian-style bathroom featuring intricate details, there's a corner bathroom vanity to suit your style.

In addition to maximizing the bathroom space by utilizing an otherwise underused corner space, corner bathroom vanities can also provide an extra storage option that's extremely helpful if you're attempting to configure a small bathroom space in the most efficient way. Many corner bathroom vanities include drawer or cabinet storage, which can be used to store linens and bath accessories.
