Decorating a small bathroom can seem very tedious and tricky, especially if you find yourself struggling for furniture and decor ideas. However, your bathroom can be designed to look and function just as well as the rest of the rooms in your house.

Every bathroom must fulfill its purpose, so you'll expect to find the essentials including a toilet, basin, faucets, storage and (if it's an en-suite) you may even have a small shower cubicle in there too. But whilst you plan how much space you're going to be taking up in your bathroom, it's extremely important to always have your wall space in mind.

A mirror has the ability to create the illusion of space, as well as enhancing the light in the room. You may be thinking that because you have a small bathroom, you will need a small mirror; but don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something out of the ordinary.

A larger sized mirror will double the appearance of size in one place and can give you a beautiful focal point, even in the smallest of bathrooms. The effect could be so powerful that you'll find yourself needing less decor to make the room look perfectly finished. This can be especially effective in slim, powder rooms and en-suites.
