5 Simple Ways To Spruce Up A Small Bathroom

Is your small bathroom getting on your last nerve? We get it. Keeping things presentable and organized in a small bathroom can be a challenge, and a constant annoyance. Sometimes you probably want to pick up a hammer and just knock down that wall once and for all. But don’t. That’s definitely one project you want to leave to the professionals. Rest assured, there are better bathroom vanities out there, and a linen cabinet can be the shining star in the world of storage. Skip the DIY bathroom demo and try these simple ways to spruce up a small bathroom instead.  


1. Fresh Coat Of Paint


Probably the most cost effective way to make a room feel new again is a fresh coat of paint. Why not even go wild and choose a trendy color rather than a standard white or gray? Sherwin William’s 2017 Color of the Year is Poised Taupe, and we’re kind of obsessed. Just imagine how pretty this lovely neutral would look with some cornflower blue towels and an off-white shower curtain.

Swap out your rusty shower curtain rod for a new curved rod. The Elements by Hardware Resource shower rod collection from The RTA Store comes in either shiny polished chrome or a subtle satin nickel finish. This style is much more fashion forward than the traditional straight shower rod, and is an awesome addition when updating a small bathroom with an equally small shower.


3. New Bath Hardware


Bathroom hardware is another simple, inexpensive way to upgrade your space. We’re not just referring to your showerhead and faucets either. Switch your current towel bar, towel rings, toilet paper holder, and robe hooks with new bath hardware. Everything, including your freshly painted walls, will look so much better.


4. New Linens And Shower Curtain


When was the last time you replaced your towels or shower curtain? Swap out your current bath towels for some luxurious upgrades in colors that complement your bathroom’s new vibe. Lock down a color scheme and then find a shower curtain that will match your walls and towels. You have a new shower rod after all, and we think it deserves a pretty shower curtain to go with it.

Look for bathroom vanities that offer functional storage. You’ll find a wide variety of ready to assemble and pre-assembled bathroom vanities on You’ll want a vanity with a good mix of drawers and cabinets so you can accommodate your toiletries accordingly.


We also suggest adding a linen cabinet so that you are able to store some of your towels and washcloths in the bathroom. Most small bathrooms don’t have a closet inside, and you’re probably forced to keep these items in a hallway closet. That’s stressful in itself. There are also linen cabinet styles that arch over the toilet, so you don’t even have to sacrifice any additional space for this storage solution.


Do these five simple things and your small bathroom will no longer be your arch nemesis. Hey, it might even become your new favorite room.
