How to master the minimalist luxury look in your bathroom
Bathrooms tend to be small areas with tight angles and can present a real design challenge for even the most skilled of interior designers. The bathroom is also meant to be a space where you can unwind and luxuriate in the bath or during a long shower, so having a stripped-back, minimal style can help to add to this sense of escape.
If you’re looking to give your bathroom that much needed makeover this autumn, it may be time to transform it into the oasis that you deserve and enjoy some much-needed minimalism.
With this in mind we spoke to the experts at Matter Designs for their advice on the changes you can make to de-clutter your bathroom and ensure it remains a space of relaxation and tranquillity for years to come.
Keep colours neutral and simple
A neutral colour base, from white to grey and other pastel tones will keep your bathroom looking and feeling open and spacious. Enhance natural light as much as possible and keep window sill ornaments to a minimum.
Make use of storage and keep your items hidden away
The key to achieving true minimalism is to reduce the amount of ‘stuff’ you have in your bathroom. If that feels near enough impossible, try making use of clever storage options such as towel shelves above the door and storage bathroom panels.
Just because you have the storage however, doesn’t mean you need to fill it completely. You will need to go through your products and think about what you really need to keep in your bathroom and what can be moved elsewhere or better still, thrown out/given away.
Stick to simple patterns and textures
Think of simple materials, simple patterns and simple textures. Ensuring you keep things simple will ensure not only a pleasing aesthetic but a minimal one too. Avoid too many busy patterns and perhaps opt for one contrast wall or one simple tiled pattern around your sink.
Ensure functionality and accessibility
Anything you bring into your bathroom should be not only beautiful but functional too. In a minimalist bathroom, there simply isn’t room for things that do not serve a purpose.
Keeping your bathroom a calm place
The bathroom is a room that finds itself enduring heavy traffic yet is expected to remain a place of calm and serenity, a place where we get ready before work, get ready before a night out, relax and unwind to rid ourselves of the daily stresses. Ensuring you have a minimal space to do that in is vital and having experts on hand to help is nothing short of priceless.
