How to make the most of a small bathroom that's actually small

I don't know about you, but as the proud owner of a teeny tiny bathroom, I get so tired of seeing so called "small bathrooms" that you could ballroom dance in. Our set up is sink, toilet, shower. Everything you need, but no room to necessarily move. Lucky for us, somewhere on our home's journey, someone thought it important to add built-in shelving next to our shower (thank you kind stranger!). If you haven't been blessed with the power of built-ins, there are plenty other ways to make the most of a small bathroom.

MINIMALISM

Sometimes less is more, and in the case of a teeny bathroom, this stark white bathroom feels more open.

SHELVING

Every inch of space is necessary in a small bathroom, so take advantage of that prime area above the toilet!

pocket doors

If you can't even afford the amount of space a door swing would take, opt for a pocket door. Get the DIY here!

mirrors

Add several mirrors to reflect light and give the illusion of a larger room.

plants

Plants make everything better. In the lucky case of a small bathroom with a window, you can hang them to alleviate floor and shelf space. I can't wait to hang a fern in our shower!

pattern

Sure less is more, but let's be real, pattern is awesome. A fun wallpaper can make a small room feel more special, and it's less overwhelming than pattern all over a large space. Take advantage of the teeny-ness!
