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.

Testimonials

  • "Thank you to Ray and Andre for your patience and your professionalism. A special thank you to the office staff. It doesn't matter how many times I called her, she was always pleasant and helpful, would always return my calls ASAP and most of all have the answers for me."
    Vicki - Mascot

  • "I was very pleased that you handled everything. No problem was too hard, a welcome relief as renovation of a 1930s bathroom in a block of units is bound to be full of surprises."
    Jackie - Chatswood

  • "There was a high standard of workmanship by all trades people. The bathroom design and fittings selected well. I am very pleased with my bathroom and delighted that I organised the renovation with Hollywood."
    Margaret - Crows Nest

  • "My friends have been impressed and I am happy to recommend your service to your future customers. I know I'm a bit fussy and have a good eye for detail, I'm very happy with the finished product."
    Victoria - Camperdown

  • "The tradesmen were courteous and carried out their work professionally with a minimum of disruption to the household."
    Howard - Davison

  • "We liked the fact that we were able to continue at work full-time whilst the bathroom renovations were happening. If we were not happy with something, it was remedied with one phone call and no hassles."
    Kathryn - Cromer

  • "Tradesmen were brilliant. Everything was completed on time. We were never made to feel we were being a problem if we asked to have things corrected. We felt secure knowing Andre was attending our home frequently checking the work and progress."
    Tracey - Greystanes

  • "All jobs appear to have been completed in an efficient and professional manner."
    Tim - Normanhurst

  • "We were delighted with the courtesy and professionalism of every member of your team."
    Salvatore - Lane Cove

  • "My wife is especially grateful, with the prospect of a fantastic new kitchen early in the New Year. She is in a wheel chair and we plan to take most of the height out of the kickboard so that there is a double bonus for her replacement of the tired old kitchen with the beautiful new one, as well as it being much lower and therefore much easier for her to use."
    Rob and Judy - Merewether

  • "We were worried about the mess that would be caused by the demolition of the old bathroom. However, Darren handled this problem with great efficiency and strength and so the rubble problem was kept to a minimum."
    Ian - Darling Point

  • "The finished job is excellent. We cannot fault the professional finish. The advice from Ray all the way through the job was friendly, always available and professional. It was his manner that impressed us most."
    Bob - Wollstonecraft
