The minimalist trend is all about reducing clutter for a more peaceful place, perfect for small bathrooms.
The family bathroom might just be the universal repository of household clutter. Empty shampoo bottles, toilet rolls and old cosmetics fill every surface, making tight spaces feel even smaller. When it comes time for a bathroom refresh, a minimalist look can take your space from tiny and cramped to a slice of serenity. Make your bathroom your sanctuary with these tips.
Use colour effectively
Using lighter shades will help make small spaces seem larger. White and cream colours are a great choice for keeping it simple, but if you’re keen to lessen your cleaning commitment pale grey and ashier tones can work beautifully. Avoid bright, loud colours and keep the amount of different colours used to a minimum to suffuse your space with a peaceful feeling.
2. Tile for a spacious feel
Even the smallest bathrooms can benefit from the use of large tiles. Large tiles means less grout lines; ensuring the eye isn’t interrupted and making the space look expansive. Using the same tiles between the wall and floors is another tip for making smaller areas seem more spacious.
3. Use an eye-catching feature
Simple doesn’t have to mean boring! The minimalist style is about making sure different designs aren’t competing for attention so that the area looks clean and functional. A great way to add visual interest without compromising on a clean look is by using a feature splash back. Subway tiles are perfect for this. Styled in a classic running bond, the close grouting creates a pattern of angles that will look stunning against a simple bathroom backdrop.
Add some white fluffy towels, bubbles and calming music and your oasis awaits! To keep clutter to a minimum in small bathrooms, consider storing toiletries in bedrooms so that you can keep your bathroom clear and comfortable.
