A minimal style can work in any room in the house, especially the bathroom. Sticking to a single colour scheme and using just one tile style will immediately trim out a fussy feel and steer towards a more pared-down aesthetic. We need to rethink minimalism as not just a plain white box or cool ultramodern space, but as a concept that simultaneously showcases exceptional functional design while artistically creating a simplified way to live.
Minimalist design started in the 20th century as a reaction to traditional and overly wrought classical details. In a nutshell, it’s design that’s stripped down to its essential purpose and identity by eliminating everything unnecessary. This pared-down aesthetic exemplifies simplicity at its best.
Designers from all fields started embracing simple, clean design. Cars, electronics and architecture became more streamlined, a trend that continues in almost everything we appreciate today. You can thank minimalism for your sleek, compact and uber-functional iPhone.
Even when they’re on the larger side, bathrooms aren’t always the biggest rooms and when you throw in a tub, a sink and a toilet, they get even smaller. Top that with busy patterns and ornate fixtures and it can be visual overload. The majority of minimalist bathrooms even do away with the smallest of touches, such as counter-top flowers and bottles of bubble bath. In fact, in most of them the tiles themselves become decorative statements. Below you will find a few images that will hopefully spark your imagination and persuade you to become a minimalist.
