Creating an Illusion of Space in the Bathroom

November 5th, 2012 by steph

Unless you live in a custom built home with a luxurious walk-in wardrobe, balcony and games room you probably wish your bathroom was bigger. Without knocking down a wall or adding any additional square footage, you can feel a little less cramped with our top Tapshop tips, which will make your bathroom feel a little less claustrophobic.

Adding the Right Coat of Paint

This is where most people go wrong. Pale, light colour schemes tend to give the illusion of a larger area of space. We’re not saying that the whole room has to be pristine white, with white fixtures and fittings, especially to you trend followers. Add a little ‘zing’ to your bathroom by adding bright accessories or a bright feature wall. Try a lime green that will create a fresh, airy atmosphere, or a pastel green to create a cool serene sanctuary. These colours and designs will create the illusion of space with only a paintbrush and a pot of paint.

Cutting Back on Things which Stick Out                     

You would be surprised at how the smallest piece of furniture or accessory can suddenly make your room seem to shrink. Removing wall shelves and replacing them with a streamlined cabinet will dramatically transform the size and feel of the room in a matter of seconds. Of course, you may need some of the pieces for comfort or uses, but if your bathroom looks a lot bigger without them, try and think of some other ways to supply the space you need.

Say Goodbye to Visual Obstructions

It may have seemed a good idea at the time, but without you even knowing, a frosted glass style will have made your room look a lot smaller, by obstructing your view of the room. Replacing frosted glass or shower curtains with clear glass will create a continuous streamlined look, making your bathroom look a lot larger. Eliminating shower doors altogether and replacing them with clear glass which can be pushed back would be the easiest and most effective option for this design.

A neat, tidy and clean bathroom will always look larger and more spacious than a cluttered, dirty one! Spend a little time organising storage areas and make the most of what you have. Just because your bathroom is small doesn’t means it has to look small. Show off your sense of colour and style in a bathroom which makes the most of its limited space.
