You can turn your existing bathroom space into a room that is more aesthetically appealing and functional for far less money than a bathroom remodel would cost you. (According to Home Advisor, the average cost of a bathroom remodel is $9,640. Granted, that depends on bathroom size, materials used, and the extent of work to be done.)
Here are a few key tips that will have you on your way to proudly displaying every square foot of your bathroom:
- Remember that less is more. Decorate with just a few pieces so the area appears more spacious.
- Open up your space with a glass shower door or a shower enclosure. For smaller bathrooms, this may make your space appear 30-50% bigger by simply replacing a shower curtain with glass.
A shower enclosure (especially a frameless one) will help you minimize dividing lines that can make the space seem smaller than it is. Not to mention, it also creates a feeling of luxury and increases your home’s value. As an added bonus, glass is easy to clean!

- Install a wall-to-wall mirror to give the illusion of more space. Although a nice vanity mirror can go a long way, you may want to consider upgrading to a mirror that spans the width of the wall and reaches up to the ceiling. This can make your bathroom feel twice its size. Although a custom-cut mirror costs more than a prefab mirror, it’s still considerably less than running tile or stone behind a smaller mirror.
So, there you have it! Three easy fixes to make your space work for you. You and your guests will enjoy these bathroom updates while being budget-friendly at the same time.
