Use mirrors to reflect light and add space: Vanity mirrors can take up the entire wall or hang in decorative frames to resemble artwork. When using mirrors in bathrooms consider the subject that will be reflected. Mirrors across from a window will reflect light and scenery while a mirror across from a bathroom linen closet may not give you the impact you were looking for. Mirrors also come in etched versions to add visual interest.
You don’t have to be as bold in your designs to go as far as the hypnotic mosaic pattern pictured below but patterned tiles are in for 2014 especially mosaics. If you can add a retro flare that’ll be an added bonus but make sure it’s done right so it doesn’t look tacky or quickly dated as is the tendency for many of these designs to fall victim to.
Use a minimum amount of accessories on the floor: Ensure floor space is kept clear and uncluttered. If you choose to use a rug use 1 large one as opposed to several small ones. The more separate pieces you have the more the floor space is broken up visually. One rug will unify the floor as one large whole and maximize your bathroom area.
Opt for larger floor tile in a small bathroom: When selecting floor tile choose larger units and patterns that are subtle rather than busy. Less breaking up of the floor lines equates to less visual chopping with your eyes. Flooring should compliment your bathroom and by using small floor tile you will detract from your goal of enlarging the space.
