The Many Types of Construction Contractor

Yo! Welcome to this new blog. Last year, I decided to fix up my home. I had lived in this place for the past 20 years and since I moved in, I haven't really done a thing to it. I decided to do something about it when I arrived home one day and saw how terrible my house looked compared to my neighbour's places. I called in a range of different contractors to replace the roof, repair the walls and paint the interior. I was really pleased with the results and I picked up a lot useful tips which I would like to share with you.

Three Ways A Frameless Shower Makes Your Bathroom Seem Bigger

When remodelling a bathroom, your choice for the shower will have a significant impact on its aesthetics. Frameless showers offer many advantages, particularly when it comes to the spaciousness of a room. Here are several ways they seem to increase the dimensions of a bathroom.

How Transparency Helps

Without metal trim along the edges of each glass panel, frameless showers become almost invisible, extending how far the eye can see. Without solid barriers, the space within the room seems to continue further. On the other hand, more cumbersome and opaque screens function as walls of sorts, blocking off the shower from the main room area. This, in effect, shrinks the space by separating the room into two. With a frameless shower installation, the room functions as one vast expanse. A simple room divider produces this same effect. While it might split a room into two, the area will typically feel smaller no matter which side you stand on just because the expanse is divided. 

The Role Of Reflection

The reflectiveness of glass also helps to make a bathroom seem larger. By bouncing light around, the glass panels in frameless showers brighten up the whole area. This gives feelings of spaciousness because lighter rooms tend to look and feel larger than dimmer or darker ones. While the incoming amount of available natural and artificial light is crucial, a frameless shower will make the most of whatever is already there by passing it on to other surfaces.

MInimalist Design Benefits

The more detail and clutter in an area, the more crowded and confined it can feel. The opposite is also the case. Minimalist designs, with clean lines and open, uninterrupted surfaces, create feelings of extension and expansion. Streamlined frameless showers are the ultimate zen object; their glacier-like glass sheets are free of heavy metal framing, which can weigh down the design. These pure forms don't add much visual detail, and because of this, they help make a bathroom feel roomier.

Whether your bathroom is large or small, renovations that include a frameless shower will appear to increase its dimensions. Standing either inside or outside the enclosure, you will experience more spaciousness and pleasantness. The clean edges, reflective qualities and smooth surfaces all contribute to this effect. Additionally, because a frameless shower achieves all this by being almost invisible, it allows other design features, such as decorative tiling, to take centre stage.
