What will you do if your perfect bathroom design plan is
bigger than the space you actually have? Instead of
tearing down the wall to make up for that much needed
space, why not use these simple yet effective ideas to
make your bathroom design look bigger…
Multi-purpose cabinet and display shelf
One cabinet with display shelf that is both functional and
decorative is enough for your bathroom design plan. Use
thin and long cabinet to create an illusion of open space.
Maximize the wall by going long instead of going wide.
Better floor management
Open up your space even more by showing as much floor as
your can. A floating bathroom vanity creates an illusion
of additional floor space. Also, use lighter color
flooring materials to make the room appear larger.
Use proper materials
One of the better ways to create a spacious bathroom is to
install simple yet elegant bathroom wall tiles. It could
be made of glass, marble, limestone, or ceramic. Use a
minimalist wall treatment approach so that it can achieve
a clear and spacious look. Another tip is to make your
bathroom cohesive to the entire house. Install in your
bathroom the same wall material you use on the room next
to it. But do not limit yourself to these options alone.
Be creative. Employ some elements such as bathroom window,
glass wall, or mirrors to generate a more open feel.
Use clear glass dividers
Designing a bathroom plan requires you to allocate
sections of the bathroom for different functions. This may
be a bit tricky if the space is very limited. But using
glass dividers or curtains creates an open-spaced bathroom
design. Do not forget the privacy issues when thinking of
installing clear glass dividers.
Work on the ceiling.
If you are stuck with a limited bathroom floor plan area,
think above your head. Let the natural light to come in by
constructing clear glass ceiling on one area of the
bathroom, for example the bathtub. If the budget permits,
set the bathroom ceiling higher than your original design
plan. A 10ft. by 10ft. bathroom constructed with an
additional foot of ceiling is equivalent to 100cu.ft. of
free space. A high bathroom ceiling will definitely give
you the feel of open space.
Lighten up the bathroom
Lights can set a mood to any room, including your
bathroom. A well-lighted bathroom promotes the feeling of
open space. This is why you are encouraged to build
windows and glass ceilings that will allow the natural
light to come in. But these treatments are only functional
during the day. At nighttime, make the bathroom by
installing bathroom light fixture on important areas such
as the ceiling, walls, countertops, and vanity.
Use appropriate bathroom equipment, fittings, and
Sink, bathtub, toilet, basin, vanities, shower, faucets,
knots, and bots should not overwhelm one another. The
perfect bathroom design plan is the one that give
attention to both big and small details. If you can’t find
commercially available bathroom equipment, fittings, and
fixtures that will fit to your bathroom design plan,
hiring a contractor or customizing them yourself is a
It is good to have a spacious bathroom but often times a
perfect bathroom design plan can be achieved even if you
have a limited space.
