Bathrooms are usually small areas with tight angles and can present a design challenge, so consider using these minimalist design techniques in your bathroom!

Minimalist bathroom design

Japanese designers have become experts at minimalism, as they have been designing living spaces for a plot no larger than 30 square meters for years. Under these circumstances it`s vital to implement the essential aspects of minimalist design: functionality and space.

In the West, the minimalist movement was originally an art movement, which started in the 1960s. As with minimalist art, minimalist interior designers were required to strip down features to their simplest form -- and then for good measure, strip them down even more.
The minimalist look

Today, a smooth, architectural, minimalist bathroom presents an uncluttered look which stresses the importance of cutting edge design and materials. The minimalist scheme allows the eye to move freely around the space, making every single item in the bathroom stand out in its own right as an individual piece.

A successful minimalist room contains only what is necessary and no more. In fact, no single item apart from the carefully coordinated items should be visible, which means that unique storage is essential to this scheme, to avoid clutter and maximize any available space. Minimalism demands perfectionism, because everything in a minimalist space is totally open plan and visible.
Minimalist, not necessarily modernist

The minimalist look doesn't always have to be contemporary, though. An eclectic-minimalist look, allows you to mix styles together for a more personal touch. An elegant chandelier or traditional console can add some character to your clinically pure minimalist scheme. However, it is always essential that your room reflects the illusion of space.
