Use the Same Color for Your Walls and Ceiling
Create the illusion of more space by choosing the same color for your walls and ceiling. Avoid a white ceiling mismatched with a dark wall color, which will make the ceiling appear lower. Fewer transitions make the space appear bigger. Using extended light fixtures over medicine cabinets helps create a bigger bathroom look too, since overhead lighting in bathrooms with low ceilings shrinks the space.
