  • Given that the bathroom is the smallest room in the house, we need to double our efforts to make sure it’s clean, safe, and relaxing, especially if you're a family who shares one bathroom at home. You don’t need to spend thousands to achieve a pretty bathroom. Sometimes, you just need to be creative, use the right organizers, and invest in the right pieces.

    Here are photos of pretty bathrooms that will motivate you to transform a compact space into an organized and Pinterest-worthy private space

    Maximize every nook and cranny

    Another easy way to spruce up a bathroom? Bringing in a new mirror! A round mirror looks elegant and unique compared to the rectangular ones we often see.

    When it comes to storage, you don’t always have to depend on boxes, baskets, and plastic organizers. Turn empty walls and unused corners into instant storage stations by installing shelves. Slim shelves are available at home and hardware stores. If the available space is too tight, you can ask the neighborhood carpenter to customize it for you.

    We can’t stress it enough – plants are wonderful additions to any space. Liven up a tired T&B by decorating it with small or medium-sized indoor plants. If your bathroom is too tight, you can always hang your potted plants to make the most of vertical space.

    Don’t be afraid to work with dark colors

    Take your cue from the bathroom in the photo. Instead of going all-black, pair it with neutral finishes to maintain the airy and open feel.

    It’s easy to assume that dark colors can make your bathroom look uninviting. But as you can see in the photo above, however, it can add an edgy touch to your T&B. A bathroom with a mix of patterned tiles and subway tiles in black can help you achieve an industrial-inspired space that’s reminiscent of hotels.
