Tips for Making a Shower Look Bigger Using a Bathroom Remodel

Homeowners love taking inspiration from bathroom design trends to renovate their bathrooms and showers. However, they sometimes need their bathroom remodel in Darnestown MD to tackle particular challenges, such as making a shower look bigger than it is! Whereas enlarging a shower is a great project to take on during a bathroom remodel in Darnestown MD, it’s not always feasible given budgetary constraints, limited space, etc. At Signature Kitchens, Additions, and Baths, we’ve faced a few of these project dilemmas in the past, so here are a few tips and solutions that could transform your bathroom.


Homeowners need their bathroom remodel in Darnestown MD to tackle particular challenges, such as making a shower look bigger than it is!

Use a Light Tile Color

A tried and true tactic that always looks great, using light-colored shower tiles and an overall light color scheme for your bathroom remodel in Darnestown MD, creates the perfect foundation for a bigger shower. Lighter colors reflect light and present a more open and spacious feel. Even though darker color palettes can be a trendy addition to a bathroom design, using light and pale tiles is a timeless solution that promises tons of style.

Big Tiles and Small Grout Lines

When trying to enlarge the look of the shower for your bathroom remodel in Darnestown MD, be mindful of not creating any visual distractions that could break up the appearance of a seamless shower. Therefore, large unpatterned tiles are the way to go. With big tiles, you can also choose to use fewer and smaller grout lines. You won’t need to worry about the grout lines drawing attention to a small shower space. Plus, there are fewer grout lines to clean.

Install Glass Shower Enclosure

Like how you would choose a light color tile to reflect light in order to create the illusion of a more sizable shower, you can achieve a similar effect by installing a glass shower enclosure. Glass itself is a luxurious and stylish material to use in a bathroom remodel in Darnestown MD. Specifically, opt for a frameless glass shower enclosure, so there are even fewer visual distractions. A glass enclosure works well for separate showers and as a sleeker alternative to a shower curtain for a tub and shower combo.
