If your bathroom is the kind of space that estate agents euphemistically refer to as ‘bijou’ - in other words, you’d really struggle to swing a cat in there - you might be looking for ways to make it look larger.
The good news is, you don’t have to start tearing walls down to create this effect. There are lots of relatively simple ways in which you can make the room appear more spacious.
Mirror mirror on the wall
For example, simply hanging mirrors on the walls can seem to add to the square footage. We’re not talking tiny shaving mirrors here, but larger items that have a more pronounced effect. Depending on the layout of your bathroom, you might be able to fit impressive versions that span virtually the width of a whole wall.
In effect, these products create an optical illusion. Because of the reflections they create, they make it seem as though the space in your bathroom extends beyond the mirror and this can give the impression that your bathroom is much bigger.
Also, they are great at reflecting any natural or artificial light, helping to give a more airy, bright feel to the space.
Position is crucial
To get maximum benefit from your mirrors, it’s important to think about where best to put them. For example, it can pay off to attach them to the more prominent walls that are most commonly in people’s line of sight.
Also, you might want to think about proximity to your bath and shower. Many bathrooms have large mirrors directly over baths and there is nothing wrong with this. However, if you’re planning to do this, bear in mind that the glass sheets will need cleaning more frequently because the water that splashes on them will leave unsightly marks.
Of course, mirrors aren’t the only products to consider. It might also be worth investing in new suites for your bathroom that make the very most of the space available. For example, there is a fabulous range of corner baths on offer these days that might catch your eye.
These items can be superb in awkwardly shaped or small rooms. They mean you can still enjoy the luxury of soaking in the tub without having to take up too much of your floor space.
