Expand your space

If your bathroom does not have a window to the outside, you can however enlarge it with a mirror. Indeed, adding a large mirror in a small room will allow you to play with the proportions, its reflection will visually enlarge the room, create a perspective, multiply the light and bring a feeling of openness. Besides, your lighting is also very important. Choose it functional (to allow you to make up, to shave) and warm with bulbs of medium intensity, you can also multiply the light sources. A ceiling light for general lighting, LEDs around your mirror. Similarly, rather than a shower curtain that obstructs your view, we strongly recommend that you install a shower screen today very easily. This splash-proof glass will not break up the space in your room and will certainly widen it. Besides, unlike shower curtains, a window is very easy to clean and has a much longer lifespan. To bring a feeling of space to this small room, it is very important to be able to move around it easily. Clearly, do not leave anything lying on the ground and prefer tall storage. The floor must be accessible and clean. You can for this use all your height under the ceiling to arrange narrow but high storage. Let’s talk about furniture or shelves that you will have yourself. You'll quickly get into the habit of putting what you need close at hand and the things you use less frequently, at height.
