Make your bathroom feel bigger with these tips.
Making Your Bathroom Feel Bigger
Often times, you can be limited with space in your home when you want to expand, but your home won’t allow it. There are several ways to make your bathroom appear and physically be bigger than it was before. This can be done by moving fixtures around, utilizing windows and mirrors and including floating fixtures among others. A bigger bathroom promotes comfort and enjoyment so that you can fully appreciate your bathroom to the fullest extent. In this article, we will be going over a number of ways for you to increase the size of your bathroom using several different methods.
Review Your Current Floor Plan
Sometimes increasing the amount of space that you have available in your bathroom is as easy as reviewing your floor plan and seeing where you can move your fixtures in order to create more space. For example, if there are open corners in your bathroom, consider filling those corners with shelves to hold items that are otherwise taking up space. Corner shelves also add a unique design factor to your bathroom as well. Another way to fill that space is to move something larger into it. You are generally not using the corners of a room for walking space, so moving a fixture such as a vanity would benefit the promotion of increasing space in your room. Many people typically either have a vanity or toilet in a corner of their bathroom to create space. Keeping your fixtures out of the way of the middle of your room is a great and effective way to open up space in your bathroom. The general idea is to optimize the amount of space you have in your bathroom without having to move any fixtures that you want to include in your design. If executed properly, you could open up a significant amount of space in your bathroom.
Mirrors are a great way to simulate the idea that there is more space in your bathroom than there actually is. This method exists because of the great dual function of a wall mirror. A medium to large wall mirror can reflect the existing part of your bathroom, giving you the feeling of a bathroom that can be up to twice as large that it really is. Of course, this method won’t make your bathroom physically bigger and it won’t “create” space, but if you are looking to make your bathroom appear bigger, this is a very effective way in doing so. One important thing to note if you would like to go this route is where you are putting your mirror and some potential drawbacks it could have. For example, if you are going to include a mirror above your vanity, you want to make sure that the mirror is the same width as the vanity in order to ensure that the mirror doesn’t look out of place. At the same time, you do not want to over compensate for the size of your mirror, because if it is too big, it could just take up too much space or just look out of place in general.
