What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Introduce transparent glass panelsThere should be a minimum of obstructions in order to maximise the available space. Don’t go for a bathtub if your bathroom is very small; instead, get a shower stall. Also, do not compartmentalise the bathroom by creating opaque walls for the shower area. Instead, demarcate it with transparent glass to allow a full view of the bathroom. This will also differentiate between the wet and dry areas. Tip: Avoid using a different colour for the flooring of the shower area, because it will visually break up the floor space and make it feel smaller.
1. In this small bathroom where the vanity, WC and shower are so close together, a glass divider creates an apparently recessed shower enclosure. It stretches between two walls at one end of the bathroom, giving the illusion that the shower is a sizeable area. The sleek glass panels do not visually eat into the space, so the room looks compact yet airy.
