Interior designer Carla Aston offers 11 tips for homeowners who want to make a small bathroom seem bigger. Mirrors and clear shower glass are among the products Carla recommends in her post at Ideas for visually expanding a bathroom include:

  •    - Shower tile that goes all the way up to the ceiling.

  •    - Making most of the bathroom the same color for visual continuity.

  •    - Wisely choosing a contrast color object.

  •    - Having ceilings and walls match.

  •    - In lieu of distinct transitions, striving for a flowing look.

  •    - Letting in natural light when possible.

  •    - Opting for recessed storage solutions.

  •    - Choosing clear shower door/enclosure glass.

  •    - Selecting large mirrors.

  •    - Making clever use of mirrors to trick the eye and make the dimensions seem bigger.

Let’s take a closer look at Carla’s Tip #6, which relates to the use of clear glass in the shower area. By eschewing privacy glass in favor of a fully transparent product, a home decorator can ensure that the shower remains visually a part of the room. Instead of a “walled off” shower stall, you can have space that is included in the overall impression made by the bathroom. Carla also gives a few different suggestions relating to how mirrors can give little bathrooms a boost. For one thing, it makes sense to choose a large vanity mirror, one that goes all the way to the ceiling. You can further enhance the effect by placing a light fixture above or in front of this mirror glass.

Mirrors can also be placed opposite each other to create the illusion of infinity. Another mirror tip involves hanging a mirror where it will reflect the room’s window, making it look like there are two outdoor views instead of one. Additionally, mirrors stationed high on the wall can contribute to the creation of a spacious atmosphere. Check out all 11 of Carla’s tips and find what will work best for the improvement of your compact bathroom.
