Making Small Bathrooms Feel Larger
There are many tips and techniques you can use to help your small bathroom feel larger. This featured shower implements several of these ideas.
Large Shower, No Tub
Of course this has to work for you and your family. Either you guys don’t take baths or you have a soaking tub elsewhere in the house.
Your standard hall bathroom is five feet wide. When you install a large shower at the end (as in the image) you lose the height of the tub and exchange it for the height of the shower curb.
One Color Flooring
In this case I’m talking about the shower pan. Although I personally would prefer a tiled shower pan, the one piece all white pan is large, which helps the entire bathroom feel large.
In this featured bathroom only two things are recessed, the shower storage areas and the light fixtures, but what a difference they make. When less stuff intrudes into the rooms from the walls and ceiling, the room feels larger.
Lots of Lighting
This bathroom even has two recessed can fixtures in the shower stall area, which is excellent. A well lit area always feels larger than a dimly lit area. Always.
Avoid Visual Obstructions
One additional thing they could have done in this bathroom was to install a frameless shower door. The difference is the metal frame is replaced with a set of brackets and for the actual shower doors you have the glass of the panel and the door almost touch the tile. Because there is less stuff obscuring your view, you see more of what’s behind the shower doors. The more you see, the larger it feels.
