As we enter the new year, most of us want to take on a new home project that will reflect our new resolve and outlook. If your next project is to renovate your bathroom, the first thing that you must decide on is which style to go for. Do you want to unclutter your bathroom so it will be more inviting? If that is so, then opt for a minimalist design.
A typical feature of a modern, contemporary home, a minimalist bathroom design is characterized by clean lines, and strong and simple shapes. One key element to achieve this is to remove any unwanted bathroom accessories and furniture to open up the space in your bathroom. Going for bathroom fixtures with streamlined designs, such as geometric or swirl models are perfect for a minimalist décor.
Store away any beauty and grooming accessories that are cluttering your bathroom vanity. You can purchase a small bathroom closet to store towels and your accessories. If you have limited bathroom space and you simply don’t have any space for the closet, then opt to store it just right outside your bathroom door so that your towels and accessories are still within your reach when you need it.
For a minimalist design, a rectangular bathtub just like Purescape 624 from Aquatica will fit to a tee. This new 2012 design is a freestanding rectangular bathtub made of resin which can be made as your bathroom centerpiece. This way, the tub will be visually appealing and very accessible to use.
Choose a streamlined base sink and opting for a shower curtain with geometric design will complete your minimalist look.
Simple doesn’t have to mean characterless, by any means. Consider the warm elegance of a Scandinavian sauna, the Zen simplicity of an Asian bath, or the elemental beauty of an adobe sweat lodge. You can infuse your minimalist bath with any of these influences by choosing appropriate materials and accents such as candles, rugs, shelving, mirrors and other accessories--kept to a minimum, of course.
Even if you don’t embrace the minimalist style entirely, you’ll likely find that simply de-cluttering your bath can be the first step in clearing your head. By creating an at-home spa that celebrates the beauty of simplicity, you’ll be rewarded with an elegant escape--one where you can relax your body and quiet your mind.
