Minimalism’s clean lines and thoughtful restraint has broad appeal. Not only is it intellectually and aesthetically pleasing, it’s a visual expression of serenity that’s tailor-made for a relaxing spa-style bathroom.
The minimalist approach to bathroom design is often expressed through smooth, uninterrupted surfaces, sculptural lines, and a purposeful lack of ornamentation and clutter. Fixtures are sleek and understated; the few accessories in the room often include cotton towels and soft, indirect lighting sources
The minimalist trend draws inspiration from nature. Colors are calm and neutral, in whites, beiges and grays reminiscent of clouds and sand, and the muted blue-blacks of smooth river rock.
Look for the following minimalist-style characteristics as you consider updating your bathroom:
The strength of minimalism lies in the impact of the few objects in the room. The Purist® collection of products, which includes faucets, sinks, vanities, baths and showers, are perfect for a minimalist-style bath, thanks to their simple lines and classic materials.
Minimalism in bathroom fixtures means simple architectural forms, geometric shapes, smooth, sculptural lines, and low profiles. Bath Tubs and showers should be visually appealing and a pleasure to use. Look for wall-mounted, space-saving sinks and streamlined, one-piece toilets. The Karess® toilet, for example, epitomizes minimalist design.
Look for sleek faucets and accessories with fluid lines with little decoration. Faucets and handles should be modern in design, straightforward and the smallest size they need to be to function.
Closed cabinets help hide necessary accessories, but you can further streamline your room’s look by installing touch latches or understated hardware on doors and drawers. Keep the style and finishes consistent throughout the room.
