Minimalism brings all you want to the bathroom. What’s that? Less. The whole principle of minimalism is about getting rid of the redundant to focus on the necessary. Exactly what you need in the bathroom. Exactly what you must consider if you plan a bathroom remodel or like to tidy up things to make the room more functional.
Have you noticed how relaxed you feel when you walk into a room, which is not cluttered and colored with neutrals? In a room, where you can hardly see many objects and its aesthetic vibe is smooth? This happens because our eyes rest, the brain rests and there’s nothing to cause stress – the exact opposite of everyday life. And it is for this very reason why you may want to embrace minimalism in the bathroom.
Decluttered bathrooms, decluttered souls
While not all minimalist bathrooms are the same, they all have one thing in common. No clutter. The clean lines and complete absence of clutter are the signatures of minimalism. This doesn’t mean that you won’t have some storage room in the bathroom. On the contrary. You need space to store the endless things everyone keeps and needs in the bathroom. The only difference is that the bathroom vanities and the cabinets go unnoticed. They are blended in the whole so that they won’t stand out, while they will offer the storage space you need.
Now, when you walk in and out of a decluttered bathroom, your mind stays decluttered and calm too. Your thoughts are better organized. It’s easier to unwind when you return home after a difficult day at work. That’s because the surroundings don’t add extra burden or evoke negativity as messy environments would do.
Positive bathrooms, positive life
Neutral colors and neat spaces help us relax. They don’t aggravate or add stress. The absence of heavy geometric patterns, dark colors, and mess promotes positivity. No wonder minimalist spaces are often white with some splashes of colors here and there – often black. The intention is to create a sense of positiveness. Thanks to the absence of things, the room becomes positive.
A significant element of minimalism is simplicity – that’s why all colors are neutral. The world of minimalism focuses on simplicity and that’s why all minimalistic objects are high design. And so, you can still decorate your bathroom with the hardware you like, get the faucet you prefer, go for bathroom cabinets, vanities, and accessories that will speak to your soul but they will all be minimal.
With that, you get two positive things: first, you have all the amenities you need in the bathroom without making the space busy. And second, you will have the things you want. And so, you will get some extra positive feelings.
Relaxing bathrooms, energetic people
Minimalist bathroom designs embrace natural materials and neutral colors. Walk-in showers with transparent glass and often chrome or black elements prevail. A freestanding bathtub may also feature as a focal point, especially if there’s enough space. There’s often a complete absence of cabinet handles and so nothing protrudes to disturb the eye’s journey. Such environments are relaxing. And when you feel relaxed in your own bathroom and manage to unwind, you gain energy – the very one that helps you with everything else.
Minimal bathrooms, larger spaces
In a minimalist bathroom, everything is in place. Nothing is in your way. That’s good for your peace of mind but also for the space itself. The clean lines of minimalism create the illusion that even a small bathroom appears to be larger, while you actually create more traffic space since there’s no object on the floor and the lines are clean and straightforward. Opening up spaces, especially if they are particularly tight, and making them look big, even if they are small, are both good for the eye, the soul, and the room’s appearance. Plus, minimalist bathrooms are much easier to clean. And that’s important when it comes to bathrooms.
