Don't Miss a Beat

The more compact the space is, the more design forward it should be. Pay attention to every detail, from light fixtures, to color palette, mirror, and hardware, because everything is in close quarters.

Utilize Wall Space

If you don’t have enough storage, try a series of small open shelves on a bare wall. Use baskets and containers to organize the small things. Usually, the wall behind the toilet is bare, so go as high as you can and use a step ladder for easy access.

Plants and Flowers

Plants or a small vase of flowers makes a big impact in any small space. They bring in color, shapes, and life. Plants that requires low light and humidity are perfect for the bathroom.
