Clean lines and a quiet palette can help create a more relaxing space
A soothing color palette contributes to the Zen-like feeling of a minimalist bathroom. Choosing one base hue and using different shades of it is restful to the eye.
To put the focus on one or two stunning elements in a bathroom (whether a wooden vanity, mosaic tile or sculptural tub), try the minimalist move of sticking to one metallic finish. Matching the finish on the faucets, shower head, vanity hardware, lighting, door knobs, toilet paper holder and towel bars will keep them from being a distraction.
The practically invisible quality of clear glass can make the smallest of bathrooms and shower stalls feel much larger than they are. There’s no frame to catch the eye, and as a bonus, you won’t have to dig gunk out of it when cleaning.
A wall-mounted vanity floats, allowing flooring to extend completely underneath it and thereby making a bathroom feel larger. It also provides the opportunity to install LED strip lights beneath it for a soft glow during midnight trips to the bathroom.
Like a wall-mounted vanity, a wall-mounted toilet allows the flooring to extend beneath it. It also hides the clunky, clutter-catching tank inside the wall. For those wondering about how to repair such a toilet, the tank is accessible through the flushing panel.
