Changing the flooring in a small bathroom can change the look of the entire room. A small floor area is cheaper to remodel and takes much less time to complete. Ceramic tile, laminate flooring, linoleum and vinyl flooring are all good options for a small bathroom; each one is durable and resists moisture better than other flooring options.
A small bathroom needs color on the walls to make it appear larger. Since the bathroom is a unique area, it's easy to choose bright colors and work with themes; for example, yellow, adobe and blue all work well in a small bathroom. Adding bright pictures and paintings also helps make the room appear larger. Using themes such as flowers or animals helps to bring a small bathroom together. Avoid using a border around the top of the ceiling, because this makes the ceiling appear lower and the room smaller. Using mirrors in a small area also makes the room appear larger, and you may want to play with the placement of the mirrors to control the lighting.
Space and Storage
Since space is limited in a small bathroom, adding storage can be tricky. For example, a sink that's on a large vanity takes up a great deal of space, but you can eliminate this problem by adding a pedestal sink, which consists of a bowl on top of a pedestal. Also, storage may be added by placing a storage unit or cabinets over the toilet, and by placing hooks on the back of the door for hanging towels or bathrobes.
