2. Keep the floor bare as much as possible

Consider a freestanding basin and use wall-mounted taps and shelves rather than cabinets or drawers.Bathroom with small bath and wall-mounted sink

3. Install floor tiles on a diagonal

4. Use hooks in lieu of towel racks

5. Carve out niches into the walls

This will create extra storage and the space will feel larger if you carve into the walls as opposed to using shelves and cabinets.

6. Skip the shower door or curtain

A glass panel that covers half the shower space instead of a glass door or a shower curtain will keep the water in the shower and will also free up much needed elbow room.Two niches over toilet

7. Install a ledge over furniture

A ledge right above the sink will hold all your daily essentials (toothbrush, toothpaste, glasses, soap). Another one above the toilet can be a space to store extra toilet paper rolls a decorative piece.Small Bathroom with ledge over sink and toilet

8. Consider a corner sink

10. Install a Skylight

Proper lighting will make any small room look bigger, and natural light is best.Small bathroom with corner sink and vanity
