More and more people are embracing the minimalist movement—doing away with clutter and only keeping the bare essentials. Minimalism provides many benefits; the main one being the elimination of mess which is great for any home looking to keep organized. In a space like the bathroom, which is usually compact and filled with essentials, getting rid of eyesores and distractions can improve your morning routine. Wondering how you can create a minimalist bathroom without sacrificing style? Here’s how:

Add texture.

Even if you’re going for an all-white look, the trick to adding life to a bare space is by incorporating texture. Try a wooden finish on your console, getting metallic fittings, or adding a high-pile bathroom mat. The right texture gives dimension to your space so it doesn’t look flat and boring.

Switch up your tiles.

Working with tiles can help you showcase your creativity. Begin by checking out different patterns and styles of tiles you can work with. How about working with machuca tiles? You can also try using tinted grout, installing tiles in a herringbone pattern, or mixing and matching these squares. The trick to keeping it minimalist without going overboard is to keep the patterns and styles simple. 

Find tiles at Wilcon Depot.

Choose bold fixtures.

Give your eyes a visual feast when you’re in the space despite it being bare. You can do this by getting a striking tub (how about investing in a clawfoot tub?), opting for a unique sink with an interesting texture, or going for bronze fixtures. You don’t need to get big accessories all at once as little details can make all the difference.

Shop for quality fixtures at Sanitec.

Opt for subdued colors.

You can also make your space pop by contrasting with subdued colors. Neutrals are great for this look but colors in light shades also work. Shades of gray are your best bets, but you can also experiment with cream, off-white, and beige.
