Try our design tips for bathrooms. The right design is the key to making your bathroom larger.
Use lighter, cooler colours. They feel airy and create an illusion of space. Some colours will make it appear smaller though so be careful in your choice. If you have long, narrow bathroom, paint the short walls a darker colour to give them more weight.
The size of the tiles you use for your bathroom floor and walls matter a great deal. As a general rule, large cut tiles give your room a larger effect than tiles that are smaller in size. You can give your bathroom an illusion of space by extending the bathroom tiles from the floor to the wall. Try installing tiles with a subtle pattern that repeats on the floor. Emphasize the horizontal. A tile border will do just that.
The size of the bathroom looks bigger if the appropriate cabinets are put up carefully. Along with giving you extra storing space, cabinets also give your bathroom a much neater and cleaner look. Rather than hanging cabinets that ‘eat’ up space, opt for small floor cabinets.
Go heavy on the lighting. A skylight, a bay window or a glass block wall could do wonders. Keep this rule in mind – more light equals the perception of more space. If natural light is available see if you can increase the size of the source. Replacing the current window with a larger one will add light and also give you an opportunity to add a more energy efficient window. Maybe you can add a skylight, this is an excellent way to bring in more light and increase the feeling of spaciousness. Choose reflective surfaces, such as a shiny marble vanity. By the same principle, put up the biggest mirror you can. Try a glass shower enclosure.
One of the most important element which enhances the beauty of a bathroom is mirror. A bathroom mirror reflects both natural and artificial light in your bathroom and makes it look more spacious. A bathroom mirror is available in different sizes, styles and covers. If you want to give a modern and stylish look to your bathroom you need to choose a right mirror.
In place of normal doors, go in for sliding doors to make your bathroom appear bigger in size. You will find that slide doors also make your bathroom more spacious.
