Bathroom design and installation is a delicate balance between function and form. Often, any improvements have to be made with space limitations in mind. These limits can be seen as creative fuel. Here are specific tips that anyone can accomplish in their bathroom to leverage space and open things up.
A smaller bathroom needs to maximize storage. A vanity mirror with a cabinet behind it is a good start, but a sliding mirror is a classy upgrade too. Elevated cabinets above the mirror can keep the sink uncluttered, an easy problem to fall into that makes the bathroom feel more disorderly than it actually is. Open corner shelves are easy to access and can be used for toiletries, knick-knacks, and more.
Instead of generic art pictures, a live plant can make the bathroom a much more pleasant space. A flower can serve a dual purpose as scent-improver as well. A plant behind the toilet, lining the windowsill, or a small plant on the sink is a nice touch that guests will notice. Go for a green, leafy plant to foster a natural setting, or live flowers for a nice flair of color.
Bathroom design and installation isn’t always about adding, but rather about creating the appearance of spaciousness. Clear, bright lighting that is reflected with warm colors creates a friendly environment that distracts from lack of size. A small window can also project a larger room. A dark bathroom may suggest a closed, dirty space.
Glass and Mirrors
Upgrading existing mirrors can make the room feel centered. An oval mirror with gold trim gives any room a hint of regality, while a metallic frame matches darker tones well. Similarly, glass shower doors create a welcoming tone and can be easier to clean. Sharp, glass angles, such as a mirror with no trim that is framed by the wall color, are a strong start for a modern look.
