But by adding color to your small bathroom you can show your personality ánd it gives the bathroom a cheerful look.

Pink walls, green wallpaper and a colorful vainity. Combining colors in a small bathroom never looked so wonderful.
Blue and green tones are nice natural colors for a small bathroom. You can opt for a subway tile or herringbone patterns. Or you can turn you bathroom wall into a small artwork. In the first image they created a rose pattern with blue and pink bathroom tiles. So pretty!
Pink and green is a wondeful color combination. Add some black touches and your small bathroom gets a cool look.
While most people will chose a lighter color shade for a small room. The tiny bathroom below shows that you can also go a bit darker. This small bathroom has beautiful green tiles and a large mirror to make the small space look a little bit bigger.
Small bathrooms with a bathtub
Can you have a bathtub when you have a small bathroom? Yes of course! There are several ways how you can incorporate a bathtub into a small bathroom.
First of all, a huge bathtub is lovely but you can also buy a smaller bathtub so it fits into your small bathroom. And of course you can opt for a shower/bathtub combination if you want to have both.
The bathroom above is one of my favourite small bathrooms. The space belongs to blogger & stylist Kerry Lockwood who completely remodeled her rental bathroom into this beautiful space. The bathroom is small but it has a shower ánd a bathtub.

Influencer Kate Spiers transformed her outdated bathroom into a millenial pink dream space. By putting all appliances on one side the small bathroom feels larger. This way she could add a bathtub and a seperate shower. The pink tiles bring a cheerful tone to the space.

Oh boy.. do you have a bathroom that’s already small but also has a slanted roof? No worries! A slanted roof in your bathroom doesn’t have to be a problem. You just have to be a little more creative with your space. (photos: Susie Lowe, Boukari, Boukari, Daniella Witte)
how to make a bathroom feel bigger
Use a light color scheme
Light colors usually make a room feel bigger, however i’m always a big advocate for using any color you want without thinking too much about ‘design rules’. After all a room painted in colors you really love is always better than a room painted in colores you feel you ‘have to’ use.
Mirrors always make a room feel bigger, plus mirror reflect light so especially if your bathroom is not only small but also dark a mirror is going to do wonders.
Glass shower door
Ditch the shower curtain and add a glass shower door. A shower curtain will make the space smaller and stops the light from flooding into the room (depending of course on where your window is)
Walk in shower
A shower door needs space to open up, with a walk in shower you won’t have that problem. Just add a glass partition so you don’t soak the entire room
Floor to ceiling shower curtain
Anything that reaches from floor to ceiling makes a room feel higher, whether it’s bookshelves, windows or in the case of a bathroom your shower curtain or glass wall.
Sliding or pocket doors
I have a narrow hallway and opening a door uses up all the space, it’s simply inconvenient. If you have the option to make any structural changes you should think about adding a sliding door, this was you can also use the nook behind the door of your bathroom
One thing that clutters up your bathroom is all those products. A shower niche will store all your shower products and you won’t need a seperate storage solution for all your bottles.
A bathroom ledge
I love ledges, not just in a bathroom but also in a bedroom. They’re a great solution for small spaces. A wall-to-wall ledge looks clean and it adds a lot of storage to your small space.
Wall-mounted faucets is a space saver plus it looks extremely stylish.
Multifunctional & floating furniture
This seems like a no brainer but multifunctional furniture is always a must in small spaces. It pains me to see the space under the sink go to waste.
Get yourself a beautiful bathroom vanity that can store extra towels and products that you don’t always need. Buy some clear boxes to organize your drawers to keep them tidy (plus an organized drawer can hold more stuff than a cluttered drawer).
Floating furniture opens up the floor and will give a bathroom a more spacious feel.
Even more small bathroom ideas
Now you see, a small bathroom doesn’t mean you can’t have everything you want in a bathroom. Small bathrooms are stylish and you can create a relaxing spa in your own home.
