Having a large, spacious home is the dream of many, and most of us dream of having a large, spacious, and airy bathroom as well. The bathroom isn’t just a place where we perform our various hygienic functions, and it’s definitely one of the most useful rooms in any home. Imagine having a bathroom that’s light, bright, and airy, and with great elements and fixtures to boot. But if you would like to transform your bathroom into a brighter and airier space, you don’t have to break the bank. There are simple tips and tricks to make your bathroom look airier and more spacious. Want to find out what they are? Read on.
- Think of white, white, and more white
One of the best – and easiest – ways you can give your bathroom a more spacious feel is with the use of white. Think of white, white, and more white, whether it’s white tiling, white wall paint, a white basin and vanity, a white freestanding bath, and so on. The colour white has a calm, soothing effect, but it also has a naturally receding quality, which makes your bathroom space look larger and more spacious. Also, white reflects light instead of absorbing it, which contributes to your bathroom’s airier and brighter look. With white finishing for surface worktops and vanities, your bathroom will also look more seamless, since most fixtures are already in white (the basin, the bath, the toilet, etc.). But here’s a tip: if you don’t want your bathroom to look too staid and utilitarian, you can still make use of texture in certain elements, such as accents with a brightly-coloured fabric, the occasional wood or metal, and more.
- Replace your old and worn out vanity with a floating one
Here’s another brilliant thing you can do to make your bathroom appear larger and airier: change your vanity. If you feel that your old vanity needs to be replaced, then why not replace it with a floating one? Floating vanities are aesthetically pleasing and attractive, and they are great space-savers as well. Your floating vanity can serve as additional storage for your bathroom items, but since the floor is visible underneath, your bathroom won’t look cramped.
If you have an extra small bathroom, you can even go for a smaller vanity which takes up less space. With a bit more space between various fixtures such as the vanity and toilet, your bathroom will look roomier.
- Install a large mirror
Large mirrors can undoubtedly transform your bathroom space and make it look a lot bigger than it really is, as it offers the visual illusion of space. And whilst mirrors can be expensive, especially if you are planning to install one on an entire wall, just think about the price of installing tile on that same wall – it will almost be the same price as installing a mirror, but a bathroom mirror will give your bathroom a more stunning and dramatic ambiance. It gives you better value for your money. On the other hand, if you don’t want to go with a custom mirror job on an entire wall, you can simply opt to buy a big mirror with a striking and gorgeous frame.
Making your bathroom look airier and more spacious isn’t too difficult. There are other ways through which you can enhance the spaciousness of your bathroom – you can use transparent glass panelling instead of shower curtains for your shower area, and you can even have an inset cupboard or cabinet installed. With these simple but innovative changes, you can have that spacious, airy, and bright bathroom you’ve always wanted.
