Several homeowners design a bathroom that they hope will sparkle and shine. They want a room that is crisp, clean, and glistens. The reasons most strive for this look is because of the glamorous and luxurious feel that sparkling bathrooms give off. What people may not realize is that the shine comes from the bathroom surfaces reflecting light. Some of the best materials that do this are shower glass doors, mirrors, chrome and porcelain, as well as highly polished stone. Here are some ways to incorporate these materials into your fixtures:

Fixtures That Sparkle

  • Mirrors: Large mirrors, preferably with beveled edges, reflect light from the other surfaces in your home. If you find that your bathroom mirror glass is old or damaged, consider replacement mirror glass for your next home improvement project to really brighten up the space. You can even design a custom mirror to add a bit of personality to the room.
  • Countertops: There are several countertop options for homeowners to choose from. Beautifully polished marble is one high-end option, but you could also choose a quartz counter with flecks, glass, or mirror in it. A more affordable option may be a tempered glass countertop in white or spa blue-green.
  • Showers: If you’re looking for a shower or bath that really shines, consider installing a shower made from tile, glass tile, or polished stone. White is inherently sparkly and crisp, so choose one of these materials in a bright white color. Another way to add shine to your shower is by installing a glass shower door. In terms of elegance, a frameless shower door is the best choice. It is more expensive than other options, but it typically lasts longer and increases the value of a home.
  • Lighting: If you want these surfaces to really shine, know that lighting is key. You will need plenty of bright light – both natural and installed. Additionally, you can use chandeliers or other fixtures made of chrome and crystals for extra sparkle.
