How do you make a little space look bigger?
Lining the walls of your bathroom with mirrors will certainly have your bathroom stretching out to infinity. However it is not the most orthodox choice and perhaps only suitable for the more narcissistic among us. Here are two key elements for attaining open space.
1. Jostling your bath and window
Jostling either does not sound easy, or in the latter case cheap, but the finer points of how these two are placed can dramatically change your perception of a bathroom. Invariably a bath should not be placed below a window, compare…
a) A bath jutting out from the window.
b) Seeing the floor all the way up to the window wall.
Our eye picks up the vertical plane of the front of the bath. If it sits below the window the room is perceived to be smaller. Not to mention not having to awkwardly reach over the bath to open the window (a more significant hassle if you are without an exhaust fan)
2. Knock down a wall or two
When you have exhausted the possibility of shifting the elements around it’s time to produce a sledge hammer. Many bathrooms are separated into two or three compartmentalized units (basin, toilet, bath/shower) each walled off from one another. At the obvious sacrifice of multiple people using the facilities at once (or as the children leave) you may join all these areas together and reclaim more open space so you can fit in a corner spa or a double bowl vanity.
Hollywood Bathrooms and Kitchens are licensed builders (only those with builder’s licenses rather than just renovation licences can knock down walls) and are therefore able to provide the convenience of not only a new bathroom Layout but an entirely new bathroom.
For any and all enquiries about these or other options for reclaiming some coveted open space do not hesitate to call us on (02) 99 675 675.
