Most of us are bound to find ourselves living in a space with a small bathroom at some point in time. It’s easy for these small spaces to feel uncomfortably cramped, which is especially unfortunate given all the time we tend to spend in them. The good news is that there are things that can be done to make even the smallest bathrooms look bigger.
The right lighting can make a huge difference in the ambience of any room, but especially in the bathroom. Poor lighting that casts too many shadows is a great way to make it feel even smaller and more cramped. On the other hand, combining task lighting and ambient lighting can help reduce or even eliminate shadows, brighten the room, and make it look bigger. Pay special attention to the way the light casts shadows and where. If it creates shadows on the face when standing in front of the mirror, or if the lighting is poor in the shower, those are problems you’ll need to address.
A Large Mirror
Want an easy way to create an illusion of having twice the space in your bathroom? A large mirror is just the thing to pull that trick off. If your vanity has two sinks, you might be tempted to have two smaller mirrors, one for each sink, but that won’t have nearly the same effect as one large mirror. Not only does it reflect the space, providing the illusion of a bigger room, but it also reflects more light, which can help the room look bigger as well.
Frameless Shower Glass
Few things make a room look smaller than it is than dividers. While you may not think about your shower enclosure acting as a room divider, that’s exactly what it’s doing. It doesn’t really matter if the enclosure is a curtain or textured glass – it’s still creating a visual divide and cutting off a good portion of the space. Frameless shower glass, on the other hand, provides no visual barrier, allowing you to see the entirety of the space that would otherwise be blocked off. It may not change the amount of space you use for any given task, but it can sure make a visual difference.
Carefully thought out interior design choices can be a good way to make a small bathroom appear bigger than it is. Good lighting, larger mirrors, and frameless shower glass are just some of the options you have at your disposal. While they won’t do anything to actually make the space bigger, even the illusion of more space can be enough to make it a more comfortable room to be in.
Making your smaller bathroom look bigger is just one of the benefits of frameless shower glass. If you’re ready for your Glass Shower Door or Enclosure Installation, reach out to us today!
