Just because your house has a small bathroom doesn’t mean they have to be boring. By using simple objects like mirrors and creative storage spaces, you can make the bathroom look bigger and fancier. While making a place look bigger might sound like a difficult task, you should make the most out of it.
Here are five tiny bathroom ideas for Indian homes:

1. Use mirrors

The easiest way to make your bathroom look bigger is by hanging a mirror on wall opposite to the window. It bounces a lot of light and opens up narrow spaces. You can add a chandelier or a light above it to give your bathroom a glamorous appeal.

2. Large windows

While building the house or during renovations, ensure that the interior designer makes big bathroom windows. You can opt for a one-way glass for privacy or frosted glass but it won’t welcome as much light.

3. Storage space

Install handle free cabinet units and floating shelves in the bathroom to store daily use objects. Place them in the corner, so that you get more space to move around. Keep small plants on top of the cabinets for a homely feel. You can also go for over the head storage if your bathroom has a high ceiling for storing toilet paper rolls.

4. Large tiles

Continue tile pattern from the walls to the flooring to give your bathroom a seamless elegant look. If you use small tiles or different ones for the walls and floor, the bathroom will look like a box and make you feel boxed in and suffocated.

5. Sleek bathroom fixtures

Sleek bathroom fixtures not only save space but they also give the bathroom a modern look. Chunky fixtures will make it look smaller. Use a glass wall to separate the shower and toilet area, so that it doesn’t divide the bathroom into two halves yet create two separate spaces.
