When you’re selling your home on 30A but your bathroom is… cozy, use these tips and tricks to make it appear larger and become more appealing to a wider range of home buyers.
Clever Storage Solutions + Color = A Winning Combo in the Bathroom
First things first: Look at what makes your bathroom appear smaller than it is. Is there a huge, clunky vanity that’s too big for the space? Are the walls dark, making them appear closer than they really are? Are you doing what you can with mirrors to expand the space?
Here’s how you can make your bathroom appear larger:
- Invest in the right kind of vanity
- Use under-sink and wall storage
- Paint the walls a light color
- Brighten the room with mirrors
Vanities for Small Bathrooms
A stand-alone sink isn’t a bad idea in a small bathroom, but it does leave you lacking in storage space. If that’s what you choose, get wall storage to hang above the commode – you can pick cabinets or shelving, or a combination of both.

Under-Sink and Wall Storage
If you’ve chosen a small vanity rather than a stand-alone sink, it’s a good idea to invest in pull-outs so you can maximize your storage space. Here’s where wall storage comes in again, too; adding some shelves or a cabinet above the toilet can give you all the room you need for storage.

Light-colored walls make a space appear larger than it is. If the space is truly small, you want to steer clear of busy patterns – but you can choose a spectacular accent color to paint the walls or the trim.
Pro Tip: Paint the ceiling a shade lighter than the walls. Because your ceiling will catch shadows from the whole bathroom, a lighter shade will trick the eye into thinking the space is a tiny bit bigger than it is.
Strategic Mirror Placement
Mirrors reflect light, so naturally, they make a space seem bigger. Putting mirrors in places that reflect your ceiling or wall lights is a great idea – try opposing walls to get the maximum effect.
