10 Sliding Barn Door Simphome comIf you have a tiny bathroom and you think that it is a real dead-end, think again! You can still make it as appealing as possible, even appear to be visually larger. To begin with, you can replace your classic swinging door with a sliding door.

A sliding door is more efficient and practical than its counterpart – the swinging door – when it comes to a compact bathroom because it glides along the track rather than swinging open.
Besides being space saving, it is also stylish. It will make your small bathroom look either more elegant or rustic depending on the material you are going to use.

2. Marble Countertop

9 Marble Countertop Simphome comA countertop plays a crucial role in every bathroom. It is the spot that every homeowner always sees the most when they brush their teeth, shave off their beard, or even remove their make-up. Therefore, replacing an old counter-top will be your next advice.

One of the best countertops that you can rely on is a marble countertop. Comparing to a wooden countertop that is susceptible to water damage and a tile countertop that tends to trap gunk in its grout lines, marble countertop is way durable, clean, sleek, and long-lasting, not to mention the natural “vein” that will make your bathroom vanity look classy.
