Do you dream of a bathroom that looks amazing and doesn’t take you what seems like all weekend to clean? You need a minimalist bathroom.
Minimalist bathrooms are much more relaxing than cluttered ones and far easier to maintain, which is why more of us should aspire to going minimalist in that particular room at least. If you’re interested in doing so, check out these simple tips to help you create your dream minimalist bathroom right now…
Take on the Clutter
The first step to creating the minimalist look in any room is obviously to tackle the clutter that has already taken over the space. If you have 50 different shampoo bottles, several bars of soap, more towels that you could hope to use in a week and a family of rubber ducks taking up space, it’s time to sort through them, see which ones you really need and get rid of the rest.
When it comes to products like shampoo, if you have multiples of the same brand, decanting them all into one big decorative bottle is a great way to minimise the clutter without getting rid. Otherwise, hiding them away in a cabinet or building some under sink storage is an option if you really can’t get rid – and get rid of anything unnecessary you should.
Wall Mount Everything
If you want your bathroom to feel more spacious, mounting as much stuff as you can on the wall, to increase floor space is essential. So, work out exactly what bathroom furniture you do and do not need, remove the unnecessary and then consider calling a bathroom fitter in to mount your vanity and toilet. Then, consider replacing any free standing cabinets with wall mounted versions too, but remember, less is more so if you can do without them, that would be ideal.
Switch to Mixer Taps
This might seem like a very small thing, but heading over to Tap Warehouse and purchasing mixer taps for the sink and bath is a great way to make your bathroom more minimalist. After all, why have two when you can have one? There are some really pretty single taps that not only look good but which make it easier for you to control the temperature of the water too. It’ll mean a little less cleaning on your part also.
Alternatively, of course, you could also wall mount your tap(s) so that they are out of your way when you’re enjoying a bath.
Walk Into the Shower
If you have the budget for it, a walk-in shower, like the ones at UK Bathrooms is good because you don’t have to bother with shower curtains and rods etc., and they tend to look much more open and minimalist anyway – especially if you’re going for a semi-frameless model that looks practically invisible in most bathrooms.
Keep it Clean
Reducing the amount of cleaning you do might be the biggest motivator for going minimalist, but once you’ve renovated the place, take the time to give it the best cleaning up it’s ever had and from then on it should be much easier to keep it in pristine condition.
Oh, and you don’t have to paint it all white if you don’t want to!
