7 ways to make your home brighter
How to make your small bathroom feel bigger
Are you looking for a way to make your bathroom feel bigger? The bathroom can be one of the most difficult spaces to design, but done with the right tools, your bathroom can go from looking like a tiny closet to a bright, beautiful bathroom that looks like it’s come straight out of a magazine - without spending a million dollars!
Here we have compiled 3 clever visual tricks to help you achieve a big spacious bathroom!
Floor to ceiling tiles
Tiling the walls in your shower from floor to ceiling will create a sense of height in your bathroom. Your eyes will glide upwards along with the tiles, eliminating any jarring visual breaks that shrink the perception of space. Floor to ceiling tiles is an easy and modern way to make your bathroom appear larger.
When choosing tiles, opt for white. White tiles will reflect any lights rather than absorb it. This helps make the room look bigger and brighter. As most fixtures in the bathroom are already white like the sink, bath, and toilet, choosing white tiles and amenities will create a seamless look.
Use frameless glass
Does your bathroom have shower curtains or doors? If so, this makes the already small space feel smaller because it creates another wall and obstructs your line of vision. To make the space feel bigger, you can either remove the curtain or door entirely or replace it with frameless glass.
Frameless glass is a great option as it makes the space open and airy. When choosing your frameless glass, go for clear glass rather than a textured or frosted frame as this will have the opposite effect and will construct another wall.
Install bright, natural lighting
If your bathroom is dark and dim, it will make your bathroom feel a lot smaller than it actually is. One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to brighten your bathroom is by bringing in more light. Adding more natural light to a room brighten the space and will make your bathroom feel open.
Installing a Solatube skylight will solve all your lighting problems, and make things like shaving or putting on makeup a lot easier! You will notice the difference immediately and is a great investment for your bathroom.
A Solatube skylight works by capturing daylight through a rooftop dome and transfers it through a tube lined with the most reflective material in the world; Spectralight Infinity. The light is then delivered to a specially designed fixture that disperses natural sunshine throughout the entire bathroom.
This solution only takes a couple of hours to install, and doesn't use any electricity so will help reduce your power bill and your carbon footprint.
