Bathrooms can be small, but can be made to look larger through certain bathroom renovations. Adding mirrors on walls will not take up any floor space, but a large one on a wall that is free of other fittings can make the space look larger and give you the illusion of a big bathroom. Put mirrors or glass on any cabinets that you have as this can also add to the feeling of extra space. See that the tiles that you have in such small bathrooms are light colored. Improving the lighting as part of the bathroom renovation can also help to make small bathrooms less gloomy. Pay attention to ventilation and improve on it, if necessary.
