Updated: Oct 14

We get it, we can’t all afford to have those large, luxurious bathrooms we see on people’s Instagram or YouTube accounts. But it doesn’t matter, we’re going to show you how you can effectively use the space in your small bathroom to ensure no space is wasted.

  • Install shelves at eye-level or lower above the sink. This will help prevent a claustrophobic atmosphere and it provides the perfect space to place your everyday items.

  • Install narrow, open shelves.

  • For higher cabinets, you can place items that aren’t used often, like extra toothpaste or simply add decorative items like a flower pot or candle.
