If you are building a new home or planning a bathroom renovation in your current premises, you are most likely visiting bathroom displays and searching the internet for interior design options. Just keep in mind the dimensions of your bathroom and make sure the décor is size appropriate.
Use the Wall Space
Many bathroom spaces are small but clever tricks with light, colour and styling can make them look spacious. A good place to start is to decide where your wall cabinet and shelving will go. Instead of attaching them to the wall, which reduces the overall space, recess them into the wall. For extra trickery, paint the walls and the shelving the same colour for a seamless blend.
Think carefully about installing a bath. Many homes now use the space taken up by a bath to expand the size of their shower. You may not be able to soak in the tub at the end of the day, but a double shower with a frameless or semi-frameless sliding shower door adds a touch of luxury and creates the illusion of space.
At Budget Shower Screens we have a wide range of shower screens and bathroom mirrors that will suit most bathrooms. We work with three of Queensland’s largest shower screen and mirror suppliers. Best of all is that our products will suit budget-conscious clients and deliver excellent results.
The Right Tiling Makes a Difference
Getting the right tiling makes all the difference to the ambiance of the bathroom. Large tiles in soft tones make the space look larger than small tiles in bright colours. Also, do not confine the tiling just to the floor and shower. Tile one whole bathroom wall, and in the shower, continue the tiling right to the ceiling.
Keep the Floor Uncluttered
Because the floor space is limited, select a sink cabinet on legs. Just like tiling to the ceiling, being able to see under the cabinet to the wall creates an illusion of space. Anything on the floor reduces the room size, so if a toilet is to be installed, it should be wall hung.
The Finishing Touches
Now it is all down to paint and mirrors. Starting first with the paint, this is not the time to add extra colour. Of course the colour must suit the colour of the tiles, but white is a “go-to” choice that is almost never wrong. The alternative is to pick up on the soft tones of the tiles for the rest of the unpainted areas including the ceiling. Mirrors bounce light around the walls. One large mirror in a small room will make the final statement.
