Having a vast and spacious bathroom with lots of natural light is the dream of many, but the reality is often very different. A bathroom is usually the smallest room in many Indian homes, and you have to be a lot cleverer when designing it.
At Ashwin Sheth Group, we understand the challenges faced by people with small bathrooms.
Install a Pocket Door
Once very popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s, pocket doors are now making a comeback. A pocket door is a space-saving solution and perfect for a small bathroom where the wall space isn’t there to accommodate a full swinging door. This sliding door is typically thin, lightweight, and glides on a track.
Use Wall-Hung Units
Whatever the size of your bathroom, wall-hung units are a great way to create the illusion of space. Being able to see your flooring beneath them makes your bathroom look bigger. You can also use wall-mounted fixtures and fittings to add some personality to your bathroom.
Use Bigger Tiles
A wide variety of dissimilar elements in the bathroom can be chaotic, making it appear cramped and busy. Therefore, have the same tiles throughout your bathroom, all the way up to the ceiling. This way, there won’t be more dividing lines on your walls, which will help to open the space by giving the impression of your ceiling being higher. If you want to make a bold and attractive statement, go for tiles with patterns and stripes that cast an expansive effect.
Use Large Windows
When revamping the bathroom, ensure large windows are part of your plan. Installing a large window can bring more natural light to your bathroom. The size of the window will have the greatest impact on the amount of natural light that the bathroom receives. Moreover, natural lights will visually expand the space and add a little luxury at the same time. Consider opting for one-way or frosted glass or blinds to ensure privacy.
Use Glass Shower Partition
Installing glass shower partitions is one of the best ways to modernize the look of your bathroom. The major advantage of using glass shower partitions is that they help keep the shower splashes away from the rest of your bathroom.
Hang a large mirror to bounce the natural light around the bathroom and make the whole space feel bigger, brighter, and better. It is the number one trick used by interior stylists to make a room feel larger.
So, now you know these bathroom ideas, don’t let small space stop you from living large. From a pocket door to using a large mirror, all these ideas mentioned above can significantly make any bathroom appear spacious and inviting.
