This will visually stretch the room, which will then appear longer. As for accessories, bet everything on mirrors! Small, round, square, large, with storage or without ... Mirrors are the easiest way to visually enlarge a small area. If you are lucky enough to have a window in your bathroom, place one right in front. Light is also a key factor in enlarging a small space: place spotlights around your mirror and don't forget to also light your shower space. For maximum brightness, decorate your bathroom in light colors and prefer plain coverings to those with patterns.
