Keep your ceilings bright to enhance the illusion of space, opt for a sky light in the bathroom for ultimate sunshine throughout the day, or brilliant artificial lighting for the evening. Go for an all-white ceiling with walls in a similar shade, and your bathroom will look perfect.

3. A vibrant touch of colour

It’s amazing what a touch of vibrant colour can make to a small bathroom décor. This could be just the right attractive décor to create an interesting space that is elegant and chic. Keep the colour simple by pairing with all-white fixtures and furnishings, and your bathroom colour scheme can be changed as often as you’d like.

4. Walls of effort

Add something interesting to your home by opting for walls that are different, friendly and elegant. A stylish mosaic pattern could be the unique décor element that you require to get your home looking amazing!

5. Tile choice

Tile selection is a major part of getting your bathroom looking perfect. Consider the possibilities of ceramic, perhaps some marble or even porcelain for a shiny and luxurious effect that enhances style and taste.

6. Sleek minimalist

This small bathroom emphasises the space by going for a look of less is more, getting rid of the shower door was effective in this case, allowing the décor to look modern and minimalist.

7. Large mirror

A small bathroom with a large mirror, now that’s one quick and easy way to get your home looking great again. And when decorated with gorgeous illumination, this bathroom will look spacious, elegant and attractive.

8. Don't over do the white
