The fast-paced world in which we live has left us longing to create a clean and serene space in the home, inviting us to step inside and let the stresses of everyday life melt away. Yet, the bathroom is a predominately functional space, with several people – and all their toiletries – using it everyday.

Here are a few tips to create that perfect practical yet minimalist haven in the bathroom.

Minimalism is all about keeping things simple and clutter-free.

In a space which is used daily by numerous people, bathrooms can easily become overflowing with toiletries and towels. Keeping surfaces clear by stowing away everyday items is a crucial step to creating a clean, minimalist space, and the easiest way to achieve this is by incorporating smart storage solutions.

Opting for a bathroom collection, such as Geberit’s Acanto range, which can provide a variety of furniture combinations from vanity units and tall cabinets to shelving and multi-functional mirrors, will allow additional storage to be brought into the room – even when space is at a premium.


Keep it clean

Minimalist interiors offer the ideal scenario to de-stress in, thanks to its focus on a contemporary, clean design. Use simple, streamlined edges and geometric shapes to create crisp lines throughout, from the suite itself to those all-important finishing touches. Geberit’s Sigma50 flush plate, for example, features a modern, minimalist design thanks to its slim flush buttons.


Wall-hung furniture

Minimalist décor often focuses on modern furnishings, and wall-hung fixing is most certainly the future of bathroom design.

Wall-hung toilets and furniture transform your space from traditional to contemporary by hiding unsightly pipework behind the wall. They also make a room feel significantly more spacious, giving the illusion of floating ceramics.

For instance, the AquaClean Sela shower toilet, created by renowned London-based designer, Christoph Behling, offers an elegant, sleek silhouette with its wall-hung design and contemporary Chrome or White Alpine panel, perfectly bringing a touch of minimalism to any bathroom.


Subtle shades

Keeping colour simple is key to achieving a minimalist bathroom. Avoid garish, bold shades or busy patterns and tiles. Instead, stick with a neutral palette. If you’re after a light and bright bathroom consider a clean all-white scheme, or if you’d prefer to make more of a style statement opt for stylish dark greys or striking black. Geberit’s Xeno² bathroom collection is available in both Sculptura Grey and Classic White, with handle-free push-to-open drawers and LED strip lighting between the basin and units, offering the height of minimalist bathroom design.

Tip: To ensure your bathroom design remains timeless, consider investing in a suite in subtle shades, but adding in a pop of colour with accessories if desired – but remember that less is certainly more.
