The pursuit of achieving minimalist living spaces has now become a trend. In a world driven by consumerism, freeing our spaces, both mental and physical, is the new goal. Of course, the bathroom is no exception. Here are some of the ways by which we can keep our bathrooms clean and pleasing to the eyes.
Limit your color palette
We all enjoy bold colors now and then but having a limited neutral palette for your interiors can make for a peaceful and calming space. Neutrals such as white and off-white are forever the go-to hue and for good reason: White reflects light and can give your bathroom a warm ambient glow. Splashes of color now and then can make for great accents, however, make sure to keep them from overpowering the space.
Choose your materials
Materials that can be found in nature are a good source of inspiration for the minimalist bathroom. Lots of light wood and stone can warmth and provide a lot of texture and visual interest to space. Unfinished concrete has been rising in popularity for bathrooms. However, do exercise caution. Concrete is a porous material and can develop mold and fungi given the humidity in the bathroom. Do your research on what kinds of concrete can be used and what treatments are available.
Silhouette is key
Minimalism is all about sleek, uncluttered, and calming silhouettes. Keeping your furniture and fixtures in geometric shapes can amp up the cleanliness in a given space. And while not everyone can appreciate the industrial look of minimalist furniture, softening these hard lines with rounded objects can elevate the look of the bathroom. Accessorize with smaller objects to break up space.
Consider the botanical bathroom
Nothing says Zen quite like communing with nature. And while it’s not always feasible to integrate an outdoor bathroom and toilet into your home, bringing some of the outdoors into your home can soften the look of the minimalist bathroom. Having that balance between natural and man-made is one of the most appealing facets of minimalist design after all.
