Installing mirrors helps create the deception that there is ample amount of room and it’s also quite cost effective. By setting mirrors horizontally or vertically on the full length of the walls or opposite a window, you will allow the outside light to be cast more evenly across the area. This will give the appearance of wider and higher spaces.
Go from Cluttered to Clean
Giving your bathroom a spring clean, by removing all unnecessary items and clutter, will create more space and be much more pleasing to the eye. Having your sink and vanity filled with beauty articles, which could be stored away, will add to the messy and cramped feeling. Try to stow as much as possible to keep things absent from view, to create the feeling of more room.
If you have the finances to do so, remodelling your bathroom is obviously the ideal project to give you the space you desire. Proper planning and research, as well as assistance from your local plumber, will help you transform your area with creative new ideas. Many of today’s new homes and remodelled residences are incorporating a number of innovative options to maximise capacity and capability, such as installing the toilet cistern behind the wall.
Use Your WallsAnother creative method of adding more room is by attaching your cabinets, vanity and sink to your bathrooms walls, instead of originally fastening it to the floor. This method produces a lot of extra ground space, and is visually attractive and very popular in modern building. Rather than large floor cupboards, wall hung storage is a simple and economical way of freeing up space in your bathroom, while also giving you excess room to store your toiletries and other essentials. This contributes to the “less is more” theory by removing excess clutter.
Using Brighter Lights
A brighter room seems to add to the illusion of a bigger area, generally opening up the bathroom by lightening darker spots. Whether it be as simple and inexpensive as installing higher watt bulbs or adding extra fixtures, illuminating your restroom is a straightforward, relatively cheap and a helpful solution to small spaces. Alternatively, if your budget permits, adding a skylight or more windows is an excellent option too.
Lighter Paint Colours
As with bright lights, selecting the right paint colour is crucial in creating the appearance of a bigger bathroom, with light colours, pastels and off whites the obvious choice.
So if you want to enhance your bathroom, the above pointers are all great considerations when trying to make your space larger and more attractive.
