5 Tips to Achieve Simple, Minimal Design in your Bathroom
Possibly one of the most important rooms in your home—a sleek and simple bathroom can easily be aesthetically pleasing without sacrificing functionality. Whether you choose to install a statement bathtub, re-tile the space, or find a perfect mirror, the following tips can help you create the minimalist bathroom you’ve always dreamed of.
1. Stick To A Neutral Color Palette
Use neutral colours, like white or grey for the walls and scatter other neutral tones throughout the space as accents. This keeps the bathroom feeling open and bright even if you have no windows and enhances the natural light if you have some. It also ensures you pay attention to the details.
2. Be Clutter Free
Clutter is a minimalists worst nightmare. The key to achieving a minimalist bathroom is to eliminate the clutter and to eliminate clutter you need clever storage solutions. You want to keep everything tucked away out of sight to maintain the clean, crisp look of a minimalistic bathroom. Walk in showers and freestanding baths are also two ways to declutter as they don’t allow for the extra shelving where many of your day to day bathroom items end up.
3. Create Contrast
Even though the walls should be kept fairly light, bringing in contrasting elements like black hardware or chrome tap ware which can make a bold statement without bringing in unnecessary objects.
4. Bring in Simple Accents
Anything you bring into your minimalist bathroom should be both beautiful and functional. There’s no room for things that don’t serve a purpose. Make sure that even the simple things, like a towel rack or a soap bottle, perform their function beautifully.
5. Use Modern Designs
Floating cabinetry, walk in showers, freestanding baths and wall-mounted toilets are all modern bathroom trends that can instantly create a minimal design in your bathroom. And as an added bonus they make cleaning your bathroom significantly easier. Bonus!
