Your bathroom doesn’t have to be large to be big in style. There are plenty of easy ways to transform this tiny room that will maximize on space and design. Keep the room beautiful, functional and sophisticated with these bathroom decorating ideas:

Think Simple

If you have too many design elements in a small bathroom, it can become overwhelming. Instead, stick to the idea of simplicity. The space should feature one or two focal points, like a piece of artwork, a trendy rug or a vase of brightly colored flowers. As for your color palette, choose a few shades that you will consistently incorporate throughout the design.

Simple, however, doesn’t have to mean boring. You can still choose to some statement pieces–just keep in mind that the rest of your bathroom will have to be understated with neutral, solid colors. However, as a general rule, it’s best to stick to pale, cool colors that reflect light, such as whites and pastels. They help open up the room and make it appear more spacious.

Creatively Store Essentials

One of the keys to maintaining a sophisticated bathroom is keeping all clutter off the countertops. Take advantage of wall space by creating your own DIY decor using items like mason jars and cookie sheets. The mason jars are perfect for storing things like cotton balls, Q-tips and toothbrushes, while the cookie sheet can be covered in decorative paper and used as a magnetized board. Stick magnets onto the back of your makeup for an easy, convenient and visually pleasing way to store your cosmetics.

Decorate with Mirrors

The mirror above your vanity doesn’t have to be the only reflective surface in your bathroom. One of the most effective small bathroom decorating ideas is filling the space with mirrors. Mirrors are a creative way to style your bathroom and help bounce light around the area to produce the illusion of a much larger space. Just make sure that the mirrors you’re getting for your bathroom are proportionate to the space of the room. Opt for smaller mirrors for a tiny bathroom. Hang mirrors opposite windows so that the natural light can easily bounce off of its surface.

Choose Appropriate Curtains

Curtains a great for filling your bathroom with color and texture. However, you don’t want your curtains to completely shut out all of the light coming in through the windows, as that light helps create the illusion of more space. Instead, opt for a sheer fabric that will let light shine through while still providing you with ample privacy.
