Tips from a Residential Renovation Contractor
Like many people, you’re probably want your home to have big, luxurious bathrooms that are reminiscent of those found in five-star hotels. One of the best ways to achieve this goal is to hire a residential renovation contractor to extend your bathroom’s floor area and make it physically bigger. However, there are scenarios when expanding a bathroom isn’t possible. In this case, the best thing you can do is to use design elements to create an illusion of space. Here are a few tips you can use:
Use light colors
Dark colors can make rooms look smaller, so you’ll want to avoid them in your bathroom. The best option is white, which reflects light instead of absorbing it, naturally recedes in the background, and makes your bathroom look bigger. If white seems too sterile, you can opt for other hues like soft beiges, light grays, and even pale greens and blues. A bathroom renovation expert can help you choose the right color.
Take advantage of mirrors
Mirrors reflect light and make your space visually larger than it really is. If you have plenty of time, you can scour garage sales to find big mirrors that can fill up most of your bathroom wall. It’s a great way to score elegant antique mirrors at a low price. But, if you don’t have the time to shop, ask your residential renovation contractor to source a custom wall-to-wall mirror for your bathroom.
Opt for a smaller vanity
You might not realize it, but your bathroom vanity might be taking up too much space and making the area look smaller. If this is the case, you’ll want to replace it with something with a smaller profile. A pedestal sink can be a good choice but, if you really need the storage space, you can opt for a floating vanity.
Replace your shower curtain with glass
Even when its drawn, a shower curtain can still create a visual wall that “divides” your bathroom into two. Replace it with a glass door or panel to make an uninterrupted visual plane and make the area appear more expansive.
