In this month’s article, we’re going to be taking a look at solving one of the most common household design problems – how to maximise the available space in your bathroom. With land and property values at an all-time high, space really is at a premium, particularly in newer builds and as a result bathroom space is often at a premium. In addition to the obvious steps of selecting space-saving fixtures and fittings wherever possible, and installing a compact shower cubicle, there is one simple yet often overlooked solution – making the most of large, light reflecting bathroom mirrors. The more the better.
This approach works best with mirrors which possess minimal framing, to maximise the amount of reflection. There is also a great deal of versatility on offer in terms of design and shape in order to complement the existing design features of your bathroom. Most people associate bathrooms with cleanliness and prefer a clutter-free look – specially designed bathroom mirrors can help to achieve a clean, sterile design theme. Simple accessories work best, such as a simple bathroom rug. Another common method utilised to create the illusion of addition space is to incorporate design elements that go from the floor all the way to the ceiling, thereby efficiently using all available space.
Consider using glass or other light-permeable materials when it comes to using shelves. Another common trick is to hang the shower curtain just a little bit higher than you normally would – this provides yet another aesthetic element to bring your focus from the floor all the way to the ceiling, making the space feel a whole lot taller and therefore helping to make a small space feel so much larger. If you use all of these space-saving, illuminating and eye-focus tips and tricks in combination, you will be able to make the very most of your available bathroom space.
