No matter how cramped or spacious your bathroom is, there's still room to turn this space into your own personal spa. The trick is to choose small bathroom decorating ideas and organizers that are specifically designed to make the most of limited square footage. Before you start decorating, begin with a purge of everything that shouldn't be in your bathroom. By the time you're done decluttering, you'll likely discover that your bathroom has more space than you thought. Next, choose a bathroom color scheme that fits the vibe you're going for, whether that's the relaxing combo of white and blue or a glamorous mix of black and gold. After all, switching up the wall color is the most dramatic change you can make without taking up an inch of space. Once you've decluttered and picked a palette, it's time to invest in decor, organizers, and little accents that have the power to turn an ordinary bathroom into an oasis.
