Design Tips for a Minimalist Bathroom

January 3, 2018

If you are considering a bathroom remodel in 2018, you may want to look into minimalist design trends that are so popular right now. Clean and simple designs are the way to go, but minimalist doesn’t have to mean boring. Let’s look at some popular minimalist trends that can be incorporated into your current bathroom, or used in the design of a new bathroom renovation.

Design Tips for a Minimalist Bathroom

Minimalist Showers

Glass showers have the potential to make the biggest impact on your minimalist bathroom. Glass showers are clean, open, and simple, making your bathroom feel the same way. Curbless showers take it a step further and make your shower seamless in your bathroom, creating the illusion of a larger space. By replacing a traditional shower with a curbless glass shower, you eliminate a shower curtain, a break in the flooring, and the feeling of clutter and limited space.

If you are replacing a bathtub however, you may want to consider a tub to shower conversion using a custom fit insert. This insert can transform your tub into a shower and make your bathroom more open, while also making cleaning easier. Liners are especially great in bathrooms with dated tubs or showers, such as colored bathtubs.

Minimalist Shelving and Vanities

Clean, simple, light colored vanities help make a bathroom feel minimalistic by not drawing attention to themselves. Vanities with good storage can also help your bathroom feel more minimal and organized as they provide space for toiletries, keeping your counters clear. When selecting a vanity for a minimalist bathroom, choose a vanity that is an appropriate size for your bathroom that also offers great storage space for organization. By having ample storage space you can prevent clutter on your counters and in your tub/shower.

Clean Colors

Paint and tile colors also play a huge roll in how clean and minimal your bathroom feels. Dark colors tend to make spaces feel smaller, while lighter colors open up a space. Tile that coordinates and blends into the surrounding walls can also make the space feel more open, such as white tiles and white walls. Similarly, a brightly colored vanity will take away from the minimalist feel in your bathroom, so you may want to keep that a neutral gray, white, or whitewashed wood.

To simplify the look and functionality of your bathroom there are several things you can do to make it more minimalistic. By making some minor (and some major) changes to your vanity, shower/tub, and storage you can create a space that feels clean and simple, while also saving yourself time on cleaning.
