How to Style a Minimalist Bathroom: 5 Tips for Creating a Serene Space


In a world that seems like it’s constantly invading our mind space, there’s been rising interest in the benefits of a minimalist lifestyle.

Minimalism is not only a design trend linked to the visual; rather, it’s about simplifying all things. It encourages us to make more conscious habits as a consumer and purchase less by creating more sustainable choices. This can be translated into choosing things with meaning, matter to us and enhance our well-being, physically and mentally.

Minimalism is a mindset and we’re all for it in interiors. When renovating, a minimalist approach starts with the choice of finishes and materials, with an extension to design.

In this blog post, we will discuss five tips for styling a minimalist bathroom. We promise it’ll be your favourite room in the house after this!

1. Choose Simply Designed Fixtures

Maximising space is key to creating a minimalist bathroom. When creating your minimalist bathroom, try to choose simple, clean-lined fixtures, whether it be the sink, toilet or vanity. Intelligent design will maximise space for storage and movement.

Some minimal bathroom design tips include using an oval basin sink for more counter space, a wall-mounted tap to accommodate a narrower sink or vanity, and a wall-mounted vanity to maximise floor space.

2. Install a backlit mirror

Another way to make a minimalist bathroom is by installing a backlit mirror. It’s the perfect way to add ambient lighting without overpowering the space. The eclipse bathroom mirror has a 3000k warm light that’s controlled with an on/off touch sensor near the base and has a built dimming.

If you have a particular shape in mind that’s not available with a backlight, such as an arch mirror, you can install the mirror and add ambient LED lighting strips for that unique effect.

Offering versatility and simplicity, a stunning mirror can turn this everyday item into a hero piece.

3. Use neutral colours for the walls and floor

When it comes to creating a minimalist bathroom, using neutral colours is key. This will help to create a serene and relaxing space. Stick to shades like white, beige or light grey for the walls and flooring as these will help to maximise the illusion of space. Pure white or off-white walls are also reflective and will brighten small spaces.

4. Stay clutter-free with creative storage

In a small bathroom, it’s important to use storage solutions that are both effective and space-saving. This can be done by opting for recessed niches in the shower, wall-hung storage or a mirror fronted medicine cabinet. Mounting your towel rail on the shower screen can also allow for more movement throughout a tight space. By keeping the bathroom products out of sight and using neutral colours, you can create a minimalist bathroom that’s both stylish and relaxing.

5. Use large floor tiles

Although it may seem subtle, large format tiles can create the illusion of space and make smaller bathrooms seem larger. Furthermore, by reducing the tiling grout, the final surface is more clean and uniform, working to create a simple minimalist look.

In terms of material, porcelain slabs have captivated the world of architecture and design for decades. But we can’t forget to mention concrete. Concrete has become synonymous with minimalism, with critics praising the stark and industrial look it evokes. To balance the coldness of concrete, add some elements in a warm wood finish such as natural wood.
