Tips For Making Your Bathroom Feel More Spacious
If you are not able to actually knock down some walls to expand the square footage of your bathroom, you can still make the room feel much more spacious. Here are some of the things that you can do in order to achieve that goal:
Install A Frameless Glass Shower Door
Shower curtains and framed shower doors do not do much for adding more of an open feeling to the bathroom. Therefore, you will want to consider having a frameless glass shower door installed. Not only will the lack of a frame around the shower door make that area feel much more open, but it will be a lot easier to keep clean. You will not have to worry about grime building up along the ridge of the shower door. This is a simple job that you can do on your own, or you can hire a contractor to assist you with it.
Have A Large Window Installed
Many bathrooms are either windowless or they have small windows. The better option would be to have a large window in your bathroom if you have the space for it along an exterior wall. This way, you can pull back the curtains during the day to allow more natural sunlight in. The large window helps make the room feel a lot larger. If you are a little concerned about privacy, along with standard window treatments, you can have the window tinted, so those outside will not be able to see into your bathroom.
Hang Large Mirrors On The Wall
The larger the mirror the better, as it will give the illusion that the space is much larger than it truly is. Also, having large mirrors will help ensure that you are looking your best before you leave the house, as you will be able to see what you look like from head to toe instead of just getting a glimpse of a small portion of yourself in a smaller mirror. Of course, since large mirrors tend to be heavier, you will need to make sure that yours is securely attached to the wall. You do not want to risk injury should it fall and shatter on your bathroom floor. If you need help with this, you can hire a contractor to hang it for you.
As you can see, there are a few great ways to make your bathroom feel more spacious. For more information on how to do this, such as with glass shower enclosures, contact a company.
