Minimalist bathroom styling: Modern, chic and effortless

Minimalist bathroom styling: Modern, chic and effortless

Posted by Rebecca Doody in Inspiration | 1 year ago 5 min read

These days, it’s all about the clean, serene look when it comes to enhancing and updating your bathroom. Rather than filling the space you have with clutter and added extras, many homeowners are opting to do the opposite and are choosing to create a more simple setting.

A minimalistic bathroom gives the illusion of more space, which is perfect if you are working with a compact floor area. Despite a bathroom with not a toiletry in sight seeming out of reach, there are many easy ways to create this effortless, chic look in your home without breaking the bank.

Create storage

Without ample storage in your bathroom, creating that decluttered, simplistic look may prove difficult. It is important to have places to keep your bathroom items hidden away in, such as cupboards with mirrored or frosted doors, or a designated cabinet. Each essential should have a place so that your storage is more organised. Without items such as toothbrushes, sponges, moisturisers on display, your area will feel clean and spacious.

The Mode Ellis white wall hung cabinet offers a high gloss finish, with your floor space remaining clear.

Blended walls and flooring

For that gorgeous, seamless look, choose matching wall and floor tiles. This creates the illusion of a cohesive and continual flow, which oozes minimalism and sleek styling. Adding pops of colour with towels and other bathroom accessories creates a contrast and adds to the look. If you want a more decorative approach, you could match your accessories to the tile colour or pattern. Tiles can be crafted from a range of materials, such as porcelain and ceramic, with different textures including bevelled or flat.

Easy decorating ideas for white bathrooms

Choose marble

Marble styling is the epitome of serene tranquillity. Offering that fresh, clean look, the marble look is minimalistic in the way that it captures the light and shows off a simple pattern. You can opt for marble accessories such as toothbrush holders and soap dishes, or go for a more creative approach with a marble cabinet or tiling.

The Mode Hale white and grey marble countertop basin is a stunning focal point for your basin area.

Bring nature inside

Adding greenery to your bathroom sets a truly relaxing scene. Spruce up your space with a couple of neatly placed faux plants to bring colour and a fresh appearance to the bathroom or ensuite. Minimalist bathrooms don’t need to be stark and plain, so adding different types of greenery can enhance the look and feel without over cluttering the shelves or cabinets. You could also match the plant pots with your colour scheme and pair with any accessories that depict a certain theme.

Plants for the bathroom

Opt for a walk in shower enclosure

A minimalistic bathroom often works best when the space is not broken up by bulky furniture, so a walk in shower is the ideal choice. The walk in element allows for light to flow easily around the space, which in turn makes the room feel bigger and brighter. Pop a mirror up on the wall to maximise this effect and your minimalist design will come to life. The walk in enclosure can also either contrast with the rest of the bathroom, or match with accessories and purposefully placed pieces, such as candles and artwork. This creates a statement look.
