How to Make a Bathroom Look Bigger

Posted by Arrow Glass on Jan 26, 2018 3:30:14 PM

You can turn your existing bathroom space into a room that is more aesthetically appealing and functional for far less money than a bathroom remodel would cost you. (According to Home Advisor, the average cost of a bathroom remodel is $9,640. Granted, that depends on bathroom size, materials used, and the extent of work to be done.)

Here are a few key tips that will have you on your way to proudly displaying every square foot of your bathroom:

  1. Remember that less is more. Decorate with just a few pieces so the area appears more spacious.
  2. Open up your space with a glass shower door or a shower enclosure. For smaller bathrooms, this may make your space appear 30-50% bigger by simply replacing a shower curtain with glass.glass shower door

    A shower enclosure (especially a frameless one) will help you minimize dividing lines that can make the space seem smaller than it is. Not to mention, it also creates a feeling of luxury and increases your home’s value. As an added bonus, glass is easy to clean!

  3. Install a wall-to-wall mirror to give the illusion of more space.  Although a nice vanity mirror can go a long way, you may want to consider upgrading to a mirror that spans the width of the wall and reaches up to the ceiling. This can make your bathroom feel twice its size. Although a custom-cut mirror costs more than a prefab mirror, it’s still considerably less than running tile or stone behind a smaller mirror.wall-to-wall bathroom mirror and shower

So, there you have it! Three easy fixes to make your space work for you. You and your guests will enjoy these bathroom updates while being budget-friendly at the same time.
