Not Layering Lighting
Layered lighting makes any space look larger as you see every single corner and nook, besides your space becomes very functional, which is essential in bathrooms, where you need to shave, wash, make your hair and so on. Layered lighting should include ambient, accent and task lighting. Ambient lighting is those lamps and lights that are overhead, they should be bright enough to illuminate all the corners. Accent lighting should be placed where you spend much time: next to the mirror, somewhere near the bathtub if you often take a bath or near the shower. You may also go for additional task lights, for example, in a beauty nook to make grooming or making up easier.
Not Enough Storage Space
A bathroom is a functional space and you should help it realize its functions foreseeing enough storage space from the very beginning, it shouldn’t be an afterthought, especially in a small space. Having enough storage space will make your bathroom more organized, less cluttered and consequently it will look larger.
