Organization is Key
Small spaces require organization. Too many toiletries, cleaning products and hair dryers can make a small space feel smaller. Clear off the sink, clean out the medicine cabinet and remove products from under the sink. Take stock of what you own and what you use on a daily basis. Pare down the excess and keep only what you need. Baskets and bins will provide order to the items you plan on keeping.
It's all about creating more room and carving out your own space. One such example is installing a glass shelf. This easy project is perfect for the DIYer, doesn't take up counter space and gives both of you more room to store smaller toiletry items as well as keep them easily accessible.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Mirrors have the ability to visually double the size of your bathroom. By reflecting natural light, they can give your bathroom the appearance of being more open and bright. Full sink to ceiling mirrors create the most significant illusion of increased space. But if that isn't an option, consider a single mirror in a unique shape to create a point of visual interest.
Two sinks can make sharing a bath much easier - provided you have the space. Many newer vanities can accommodate two sinks. You'll need to allow at least five feet when adding a vanity for double sinks. No room? Consider side-by-side, small pedestal sinks instead. No budget for new sinks? Change your faucet with one of today's newer high arc styles. The longer neck and spout of these faucets make it easier for both of you to have the room to brush your teeth, wash your face or even shave - at the same time.
