Color Choices Affect Feeling of Size
Remember when you are choosing your colors, including that of your stone, that you have to work with the space you have available. If your space is large, this is not a worry. Dark or light colors will do well in a large space. However, if you have a small bathroom, too much dark will leave your room feeling smaller yet. Light colors and shiny surfaces tend to help a room feel larger. The smaller the room, the more important color becomes. By choosing light colors for a small bathroom, you can still achieve the relaxing effect you want in a spa bathroom.
