Do the Unexpected Hang a mirror in front of your window? It’s not as crazy as it sounds — just look at this chic bathroom. Window film takes care of any privacy issues, and the round mirror (along with the painting in the corner) brings an element of surprise to this otherwise calm space. Going for something unconventional can sometimes be a result of having limited options — like having to put the sink under the window because of a lack of space or an inability to move the plumbing.

Tips on making bathroom easy to clean. Choose a water-spot-resistant glass coating for shower dividers. When I remodeled my own bathroom, the shower glass pros let me know about Clarvista, a protective coating for shower glass that resists water spots and is guaranteed for life. I still squeegee after every shower to keep things looking clean and use glass cleaner to give it a thorough cleaning about twice a month, but after eight months there are no signs of water spots. Note: Make sure to carefully review which types of cleaners the coating manufacturer recommends. Using certain products can void the warranty. (All of the products I ever dreamed of using were on the approved list.)
Tips on designing bathroom that’s easy to clean Use a shower base instead of tiling the floor. Architectural designer Alison Strickland was not a fan of having to clean grout lines in the shower. So she used a shower base for the floor of her shower stall and designed the space around it. The ledge and the base seen here are made from a material called Krion from Porcelanosa.
Because this is a demising wall (a wall that separates two condo units), Dyer could not recess the medicine cabinet. So she adds a bamboo plywood frame around a ready-made surface-mount unit to match the vanity and shelves. The frame also added extra storage at the bottom

Or go down the more expensive route of adding a skylight. Large or small, the glow from the skylight will bring another dimension to the tiny room, drawing the eye up and out and bringing in natural light.
Landlocked Bathroom With No Natural Light A tiny bathroom with no window: It’s a double whammy. And it can feel even smaller if the lighting scheme is dark and gloomy. Solution: LED downlights are an energy-efficient option for bathrooms and will safely light up the wet areas as well as provide task lighting over the basin. It’s also important to consider the ambience in windowless rooms that don’t benefit from soft, natural light. Having a couple of bathroom wall lights on either side of a mirror will balance out the bright overheads and offer a more flattering welcome first thing in the morning.

Add personality to bathroom Go a step more dramatic with your mirror and hang one with a chunky strap from an equally substantial hook. You can also layer this look by hanging a bold frame at eye level over a flat rectangular mirror slab as a quick upgrade to an existing mirror. Have nowhere to attach the frame because a tile or glass is in the way? Ask your contractor if a mirror or frame could be hung from your ceiling instead.
