Fool-the-eye-bath ... it's small.

Visual tricks make this remodeled bathroom seem larger than it is. First, Oakland architect Bonnie Blake-Drucker covered an end wall in mirrors, visually doubling the size of the room. Next, she painted the existing ceiling dark grey, added 1-by-1 nailer strips to ceiling joists, and then tacked on 1-by-2 pine slats at 1/4-inch intervals, using galvanized finishing nails. The slats create strong horizontal lines running into the mirror.

The shower curtain hangs from a standard hospital cubicle track built behind the slats, giving the illusion that the curtain also continues through the mirror.
