I’ve shared a couple of small bathrooms with a number of people over the years. Growing up, my sister and I shared a small bathroom. In college, I shared a small bathroom with 3 other roommates. And our first year of marriage, I shared a VERY small bathroom with my husband. The struggle is real.

And here’s where I say that God really does have a sense of humor: the home we purchased actually had double sinks in the master bathroom AND the guest bathroom!

People who live in small flats should definitely not go throwing in random accessories, especially not in their tiny loos. If your bathroom feels like a matchbox and you cannot afford to move to a bigger home, check out these six simple tips on how to organize your miniature toilet area and make its modest dimensions work to your advantage.
Keep only the essentials
A common problem with bathrooms, both large and small, is that homeowners tend to get carried away with the quantity of belongings they keep there. Just like the rest of your home, your bathing area should be free of clutter and equipped with functional essentials.
