Avoid Bulky Storage Cabinets: Over sized storage cabinets can add a lot of visual weight to a small bathroom. If storage space is a necessary element in your room consider built-in units. This can entail full height cabinets as well as open nooks or shelves. Determine where the wall studs lay in your room and you’ll find the perfect area (or areas) for adding built-in units.
Choose Small Items. If you live with average sized people, you really do not need big fixtures. Big toilets, tubs, faucets, showers and sinks would look terrible in a small bathroom. They will also eat much more space. The fixtures should be appropriate to your size but nothing more. You should choose the smallest size of all fixtures that will fit you and your needs. The visual impact and the actual effect would be a small bathroom that is roomy and unobstructed.

Put Only What You Need. Ask yourself if you really want a bathroom that doubles as a living room. Chances are you will only really be spending a limited time in your bathroom. You are also not likely to be doing a lot of things in it. If you use your bathroom as it is meant to be used, then you don’t need a lot of things in it. Get rid of extra fixtures and storage units. Keep only those that you can actually use for a little relaxation and for the essential functions of a bathroom.
Mirrors can also be great for your small bathroom. Adding a large mirror will give your bathroom a larger look and will reflect the colors from your walls and fixtures to give you more of an open space look. Decorative mirrors are very nice, but again pay attention to size and overall neatness of your bathroom. Try not to clutter your small bathroom up with too many decorations, especially smaller mirrors.
Size of Fixtures: Fixtures usually come in standard sizes but if you have a sink set in a large vanity unit or a full size bathtub, consider some alternate design solutions. Perhaps instead of the sink and vanity combo, remove the storage unit and replace the existing sink with a freestanding fixture. This will visually open up the space and is a popular solution being adopted by many professional designers. Another idea when remodeling small bathrooms is to remove the full size bathtub and replace it with a standing shower enclosure. These small bathroom ideas may not be an optimal solution if you use the bathtub regularly but in some households this may be a perfect solution to create more usable space.
