Where other types of surrounds can chop up a room and make it feel closed-in, clear glass keeps everything open and larger. While clear glass does not literally save space, it makes a tight room feel bigger, which is almost as important.
Countertop faucets require space on the countertop between the sink and the wall, while those mounted on the sink save you that precious surface area. It can mean the difference between being able to fit in a tight sink or not.
More popular in European countries, these rooms maximize a small bathroom footprint. If you’ve ever had a sleeper car on a train, you know how this works. A separate shower stall is not required and everything in the room can stand up to the water.
If your mirror is centered above the sink, mount fixtures just a few inches to the left and right of the mirror. It should be as close to your face as possible.
