Tips for Making a Small Bathroom Look LargerThe shower is a great place to add more storage and give the illusion of greater space. Recessed shelving can be added in between the wall studs, or try adding a built in bench seating. Overhead lighting is also important, as the more light you have, the larger the shower will appear. Notice how the floor to ceiling glass shower doors help add reflective light as well. I like the door opening in so that water doesn't drip on the floor.
