Makeover solutions for really small bathrooms

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a spacious bathroom big enough for a double bathroom vanity or even a bathtub. For many, a bathroom means having nothing more than the essentials: a toilet, a shower and a lavatory. However, having a super tight space doesn't mean that the room can't be visually appealing - you just need to know the right things to do on your next bathroom makeover.

Making a room appear larger than it is can be especially difficult if there's no window for natural illumination. As a solution, Better Homes and Gardens suggests using light colors like creams and sage greens in the space to brighten things up. For the bathroom vanity, opt for a piece with a cream or off-white countertop for a light feel.

Additionally, mirrors can prove to be the perfect bathroom accessories when it comes to making space. Look for an oversized piece that will multiply the light and provide the illusion of extra space. Place one over your bathroom vanity - and the area is bound to look larger than what it is.
