Have you ever noticed how relaxed you become after entering an aesthetically pleasing room that’s tidy and devoid of clutter? There’s good reason for that. However subliminal it may be felt, bathroom interior design has a direct influence on our psychological state of mind and our ability to stay focused and mindful.
A tastefully designed bathroom that embraces the principles of minimalism can provide an instantly soothing contrast to our often-hectic daily lives. This is one of the reasons why it can be such a haven for positivity.
Simply put: the beauty of minimalist bathroom interior design is that it helps to declutter our minds too. It provides clarity that can encourage us to kick-start the day with a positive mindset and offload the stresses that have accumulated throughout. Less is indeed more. Let’s take a closer look at those plus points.
Messy spaces usually evoke negativity in the mind. If you come home stressed after a long day an untidy place will undoubtedly lead to more internal aggravation.
This is why out of all the rooms in the house, bathrooms are a timeless sanctuary. That meaningful, pleasingly aesthetic space can relieve stress, soothe your mind and put a positive spin on a sometimes less than productive day, particularly when adapting a minimalist design concept.
Tastefully chosen fixtures and fittings, surrounded by clean surfaces that are devoid of clutter can truly open the mind to a world of therapeutic possibility. The positive psychological impact of bathroom minimalism will easily evoke inspiration.
Choosing neutral colours and combining that with clean lines and stylish fixtures and fittings encourage clear thinking to declutter the brain and ultimately settle and inspire the mind.
RELAXING YET ENERGISING
It goes without saying how therapeutic a minimalist bathroom can be. You can temporally close yourself off to the outside world to bathe in instant relaxation. This mellow psychological impact cannot be overstated.
Yet the smooth consistency of minimalist décor can be energising too. We can be immediately energised by that toned down façade, while tastefully selected fixtures and fittings can truly strengthen your bathroom space.
SMALLER SPACES WILL APPEAR LARGER
Perhaps unsurprisingly, smaller spaces will appear larger with a bit of bathroom minimalism too. The beauty of bathroom minimalism, (or any other kind of interior home minimalism) is that you’re actually creating more space to breathe and ultimately feel free.
In this age of social distancing, creating more room should serve as a real eye-opener. Lack of space is stressful enough but opening up the interior spaces that we do have to the idyllic aesthetics of minimalism can help us focus so that we can breathe more easily, all of which has a positive impact on our wellbeing.
EASIER TO CLEAN AND KEEP TIDY
Modern bathrooms by design are easier to keep clean and tidy compared to many other rooms of the home. Therefore, it goes without saying that keeping things tidy and maintaining the cleanliness of your bathroom will become simpler too – particularly when those edges and surfaces are easily exposed.
So, throw out, donate or hideaway any unnecessary, long underused products to expose those shiny surfaces and invest in some high-quality fixtures and fittings to strengthen your space. It’ll add character and a touch of elegance to your beautiful bathroom.
