Use a monochromatic color scheme in a small bathroom: Depending on the color you choose and how much natural light illuminates your space one color can make your bathroom feel larger. Remember one color doesn’t mean you can’t use hues of one color. A bathroom with varying shades of one color will accomplish the same goal. Soft neutral tones are perfect for this eye fooling trick. If you are able to keep it clean white will make your bathroom feel the largest!
Use cabinetry with open storage: Storage under the sink is a plus and if it has open storage it can serve decorative purposes at the same time. Open storage shelves allow towels baskets and other decorative items to be stored without using up room in a closet. If you decide on open storage for your bathroom be mindful of clutter and adding too many items on the shelves.

However the one factor to consider before taking the plunge with brass is that it does require some regular maintenance to keep it looking great. It’s always best to adhere to the manufacturer’s specific upkeep instructions so routine wipe downs should be done with an approved cleaner.
Maximize vertical space: If your bathroom offers you the luxury of adding vertical storage and display then go for it! Your walls above 7 feet are usually wasted with empty area. This is a gold mine for storage of toiletries and bathroom cleaners and sprays. Consider having cabinetry built to extend up to the ceiling. If you would prefer decorations and splashes of color can also be added above mirrors and cabinetry. Adding color at a vertical height will cause the eye to go up and therefore enlarge the bathroom space and feel.
