    no much you can do unless the bathroom can be larger . The plumbing is best optimized , if revert the door to open outside you can have bigger vanity . By the style of the bathroom i would sayed never been renovated , probably need to upgrade plumbing and electrical .

    That toilet closet appears too small. Not sure the rest of the layout but consider knocking that room out in place of a pony wall.

    Strip wallpaper and paint, replace toilet with a white compact one, sink with a white wall-hung one. New tile if budget allows. Should look like a new place. Don't change plumbing or you'll end up with code issues...

    Obviously the first question is "Budget?"

    The simple solution would be to replace the toilet & refinish the sink. Replace the handles on the Faucets. Retile the floor add tile Base. Re texture the walls, if possible add some recessed shelves & Paint walls with a lighter color.

    Pocket door, strip wallpaper. Fresh paint, pedestal sink, trim around window and new trim on floor. Larger tile on the floor. Larger Framed mirror .

    We have that exact sink! And a very small powder room stuck in the 80s. Only difference is our door is on a side wall, and there is no window. We're no where near finished, but just ripping down the pink floral and stripey wall paper has made a huge difference (including revealing the toilet is in fact white, not pale pink). We're going to replace the rather unappealing plastic sink with a tiny ceramic one with new taps, and the old plastic cistern with a new colonial style ceramic one, and new seat (keeping the toilet base as it is in good condition, and classic style). Then new paint, and a good clean and regrout to the floor, new light shade, toilet roll holder, storage in one corner and art.

    I agree with other commentors - install a more compact toilet and updated sink, strip wallpaper and paint white or light color, new tile floor, etc. Two thoughts... Have you thought of a split door to maximize entry space into the bathroom? And/or enlarging the window for maximum light which will make the space feel larger.
