A minimal range of surfaces and a frameless shower stall both contribute to this bathroom's light, airy feel

One way to maximise light flow and a sense of space is to have design elements that you can literally look through and beyond.

In this seaside house, designed by architect Richard Szklarz, the traditional barriers between the master bedroom and bathroom were removed to create a flowing, resort-style suite.

A large, frameless glass shower stall borders the bedroom, enhancing the spacious look of the suite, and allowing plenty of natural light into both areas. A uniform material palette through both the bedroom and bathroom also furthers the sense of spaciousness.

"I chose a glass-faced cement render, with a steel trowel finish on the walls," says Szklarz. "This tough, water-resistant surface requires little upkeep."

Fully vitrified, non-slip floor tiles are also found throughout both areas, even running into the shower stalls.

"Wenge veneer contrasts these predominating materials, while swivel mirrors contribute to the light, airy feel," he says.
