Mirrors create an illusion of space in small bathrooms, and are one of the most cost-effective and simple methods of renovation. Add a make-up cabinet, and some focus lights for the women to have their own vanity corner. 2. Choose elegant bath fixtures. Opt for a claw-foot bath tub or a pedestal sink with clean lines, instead of choosing bulky cabinets. Simple additions, like these transform your simple bathroom into "glamour-rooms". 3. Choose durable and water-resistant flooring materials, such as stone, ceramic or marble. It is the perfect solution to have a low-maintenance bathroom, with attractive flooring as well. 4. Apart from renovating additions, it is highly essential to have a well-designed drainage system, and a high wall-mounted shower head so that it splashes less water outside the shower area. This simple addition helps to keep the bathroom dry and clean. 5. Make optimum use of space by adding storage space, with tall storage cabinets for towels, cosmetics and other toiletries.
