A windowless bathroom can end up looking not just tiny, but suffocating and constricting. Natural light and air make a space look and feel much nicer. But if you don't have the option of adding a window to your bathroom because of restrictions in your building, or because you live in a rented apartment, you needn't despair. Here are 5 ways to make a windowless bathroom look much better, with very little effort.

Add some colour

The best way to bring some life into your bathroom is to add colour to your bathroom, opt for a colourful wall, like the one in this bathroom designed by CARMELLO ARQUITETURA. Adding a wall in vibrant shade like yellow, orange, or turquoise will make your bathroom look bigger and better. You can add some prints or patterns to it to make an an even greater impact.

Add a plant

A windowless bathroom can be small and suffocating because of the lack of fresh air. A simple way to go about it is to add a plant to the bathroom. Opt for an indoor plant that purifies the air like Lavender, Snake plant, Pothos etc and you can breathe better and improve the look of your tiny bathroom by adding some vibrant colours of nature to it.

The right kind of lighting

Lighting can make a huge difference in the way any room looks, and the same applies for a windowless bathroom too. Adding lamps next to a mirror, or tiny spotlights on the wall, or in the shower area, can introduce efficient indirect lighting in your bathroom and make it look less small and cramped.

Opt for glass partitions

Partitions in any bathroom can eat away the space and make it look small, but in a windowless bathroom they can be particularly suffocating. If you can't do away with them entirely, and need a partition to separate the bathing area from the rest of the bathroom, so that it stays clean, opt for a glass partition. Whether it's a half partition like here, or a full one a glass partition will keep the sense of space intact.
