Visual Expansion Of Space In The Bathroom

Visual Expansion Of Bathroom

A bathroom is far more than just ‘functional’ today. It is a personal space, and most of us love to make it our own. Whether this means creating a relaxing spa, a sensual haven, ultra-modern simplicity, or a look of lavish luxury, having actual space is often an issue for most homeowners. However, you can give yourself the visual illusion of expansion with a few good suggestions that we are going to share with you.

Paint the ceiling the color of the walls

You can make those unusual shapes fade away by painting everything a unifying color. It cuts down on planes intersecting and the number of transitions. This leaves the room more expansive and cleaner.

Keep everything in the same value/color/tone

It will make your bathroom appear much smaller rather than larger. However, if you do want to create contrast, use it on an object rather than a space. For example, a light fixture or a low cabinet.

You will need to reframe the walls in that area, but that should not be a problem. Just having a few extra inches can make all the difference in appearance.

Use clear glass in your shower

It functions as a visual barrier within the room, even if you have some privacy and still manage to get some light in. By having clear glass, you are making the space feel far more open.

Get large mirrors

The importance of being prepared

This is why it is important that all installations or renovations in your bathroom be done by qualified staff. This is not just true when it comes to tiling or installing a sink, but it is especially important for anything plumbing related. Because if you have plumbing issues, your entire bathroom may need to be redone. Always be sure to opt for a quality provider like Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing for plumbing works.
