One of the best things about a minimalist style bathroom is that it can work in any sized space. Minimalist bathrooms are popular because of the clean, simplistic and modern look they have. Creating a minimalist bathroom is the easiest way to achieve a stylish and up to date look that won’t burn a hole in your pocket, and will stand up to the ever changing design trends for years to come. Here are a few easy steps you can take to create the perfect minimalist style bathroom in your home.
Lose the clutter
The first thing you will want to do to create your minimalist bathroom is de-clutter. Hair brushes, tooth brushes, creams, hair products etc. should be completely out of view. You may want to buy a small cabinet to keep your bathroom items hidden, just make sure that the cabinet you choose is either a very basic design or can be hidden easily. Visible storage shelves are a big no-no when it comes to a minimalist style bathroom.
When choosing your new fixtures think modern and functional, try not to pick anything with too much detailing,a simple and streamlined stainless steel faucet will look fantastic in a minimalist surrounding.
Choose glass sliding doors for your tub and shower, if your shower is unable to accommodate glass sliding doors, or if this falls outside of your budget choose a clear or plain white shower curtain.
Minimalist bathrooms are normally done in whites or creams, however if you dislike white shades you can choose soft pale colours. Bright and bold colours rarely work in a minimalist décor unless they are being used for a small border or on the trim.Your floor should be a basic white or back tile, avoid tiles with any kind of pattern.
The same rule applies to your bath towels and washcloths, choose white billowy bath towels to give your bathroom a spa feel. Pale coloured bath towels or washcloths are fine as long as they do not have any patterns or detailing.
As far as accessories go less is more. Most designers will tell you that a minimalist bathroom should have no more than one or two very simple accessories (if any), like a candle, small bowel of pebbles, a single flower in a basic thin vase or a single framed black and white print on the wall. Or go traditionally minimalist and omit the accessories altogether.
