In the large majority of modern Australian family homes, the bathroom often has the smallest footprint in the home, as space is almost always sacrificed for the main bedrooms and living areas.
Now as odd as this seems, bathrooms are some of the most commonly used rooms in a busy family home and as such have encouraged the design and development of clever space saving solutions.
Bathroom renovation companies such as Milan Bathrooms, utilise clever techniques to maximise and squeeze the most out of your bathroom space.
During your bathroom renovation the tiles on your walls and floors, the colours chosen, the fittings, and fixtures are all selected on purpose to create as much space as possible.
There are many different ways in which you can optimise the space in your home bathroom and create the illusion of a much larger area. The following are a few ways in which you can make better use of your available space.
Use wall mounting
Mounting your fixtures, cabinets, vanities, basins and even your toilet to the walls of your bathroom, help you to free up much needed space and provide you with the illusion of a much larger room.
Draw your eyes
The mirrors on your bathroom wall can be paired with beautiful low hanging lights, which act to draw your eyes directly into them. This has the benefit of keeping your eyes away from the corners of your bathroom and provides your guests with a stunning wow factor.
At every opportunity you should go bigger rather than smaller when it comes to the size of your bathroom windows or skylight. Natural sunlight coming into your bathroom makes the room feel much bigger than it actually is.
Use existing structures
When it comes to renovating your bathroom, a clever way to keep your costs down is to use existing plumbing and to retrofit where possible. This option enables you to make significant changes to the look and style of your bathroom all while sticking to your budget.
Saving space in your bathroom can be as simple as being innovative during your bathroom renovation. Instead of using larger items which make your room look bigger, use smaller ones to create the illusion of space and simplicity. Installing freestanding or swivel towel rails as an example, enables you to save space while giving off a touch of class in your bathroom.
