When you are planning to remodel or renovate your bathroom and maximize its feel and over-all look, here are some suggestions in maximizing your whole bathroom layout.
Install frameless shower doors if your budget includes a new shower. A pivot hinge will minimize the shower door swing, which also eliminates the need for a larger clearance.
Think about putting in a pocket door. This will do away with the call for any door clearance, which is usually a thirty degree wide arc. Get rid of linen closets if those are not useful. You can substitute the shelf space with hanging wall cabinets. Get rid of the partition walls. These partition walls are commonly seen in much older homes, and they are just space eating items that originated from a design era where the partition were used to separate rooms and create smaller areas. The recessed lights should be positioned next to the vanity mirror in order to illuminate the room brightly. Get rid of all the clutter. Uncluttered rooms make a space appear more open and larger. Go for cool paint palette, like the neutrals, pastels or variants of whites to provide the delusion of open space; put in more color by adding accessories, like the fixtures and towels. Make sure they go with the color scheme of the bathroom. Add mirrors, it can make the room seems bigger. Prefer wall mounted vanities than custom made cabinets since the latter will cost more. Plus, wall mounted sinks or corner vanity cabinets are space savers but very stylish as well.
