Don’t forget the ceiling: Many bathrooms have gorgeous tray or vaulted ceilings that add volume and depth to a small bathroom. If you are one of these fortunate people add lighting above to bring emphasis to this architectural feature. If your ceiling is low you still have great color options. Consider painting it a light complimentary color to the rest of the bathroom to bring the walls visually higher. Are you talented with a painting a mural? A light blue background and subtle clouds will give the illusion that the sky is above… very serene when executed properly. There isn’t any bathroom that will feel small when the sky is open above them!
Use a minimum amount of accessories on the floor: Ensure floor space is kept clear and uncluttered. If you choose to use a rug use 1 large one as opposed to several small ones. The more separate pieces you have the more the floor space is broken up visually. One rug will unify the floor as one large whole and maximize your bathroom area.

Window treatments can add height: Bathrooms that have windows shouldn’t forget these important features when giving the illusion of space. Windows not only allow natural light but give the eye a place to wander outside of the small room. To add height consider adding valances or cornices that make the window feel dramatically adorned. This illusion will draw the eye upward and away from the floor. Use coordinating colors to the palette of the bathroom and stay away from heavy and dark materials which will give the eye an abrupt place to stop.
