Less is more – the benefits of minimalism in bathroom design

Minimalism as a design concept is growing in popularity, especially when it comes to bathrooms – where simple, clean and uncluttered spaces inspired by nature can help to create a relaxing, calm and welcoming refuge.

In this post, we look at minimalism and bathroom design, and the benefits it has for you, your family and your home.

What is minimalism?

The idea behind minimalist design is to strip everything down, and to create a simple, functional space, without any unnecessary features.

In bathrooms, this generally means clean, simple lines, with understated fixtures and fittings, and a general lack of clutter, with the only accessories in the room being functional pieces, like towels.

The benefits

Maximising space
Keeping things simple, minimising clutter, and simplifying the design of your bathroom will help you to maximise available space, and make your bathroom feel much bigger, which is why it’s a great idea for small bathrooms and ensuites.

Timeless design
Whilst most design trends come and go, there’s a timeless quality about minimalism, which helps it to ensure that it never goes out of style.

If you’re looking for a bathroom that will still look just as contemporary in 10 years time as it does today, then a minimalist design scheme is a very safe bet.

Adaptable
Minimalist design is very adaptable, and you can easily add character to a minimalist bathroom with a few, well thought out accessories.

By adding small, inexpensive accents like rugs, mirrors, or simple ornaments, you can quickly change your minimalist bathroom into a zen inspired Asian bathroom or professional looking spa.

Relaxation and harmony
The clean, simple lines and natural materials used in Minimalism, along with a lack of clutter will help to create a calming space, perfect for de-stressing and enjoying a relaxing bath after a stressful day.

Low upkeep
The lack of clutter and unnecessary furniture and accessories in a minimalist bathroom will make it much easier to maintain. As an added bonus, you won’t have to worry about moving clutter or furniture when it comes to cleaning!

Selling your home
If you’re looking to sell your home in the near future, then a minimal bathroom can help to improve the desirability and value of your property.

When selling a home, its important to help potential buyers to envisage their possessions in your home.

Bold bathroom designs, bright colour schemes, and personal knickknacks will divide opinion, and can put off potential buyers, so go for minimal and simple to appeal to a broader range of tastes.
