A Guide for A Minimalist Bathroom

When someone is purchasing a house, buyers say that the bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house, something that does not need work done too and fits their needs. If you renovate your bathroom, it can increase your properties value. The minimalistic trend has become more popular over the years and is becoming a trend.

To have the perfect bathroom it needs a balance of practicality and aesthetics.  The space needs to be functional, but at the same time relaxing and an enjoyable space to be in. The space also needs to be clutter free with no chaos to create the luxury minimalistic space you dream of.

Below we will discuss the perfect design tips to create your minimalist bathroom, whether you are looking to sell or simply upgrade your home design, it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune.


Adding character and detailing to a minimalistic bathroom is easy and tiles is the best way to do this. You can add a personal touch to your bathroom without too much decorative accessories. You can keep it simple with colours such as, black, white, or grey tiling. You can lay them vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.

If you are wanting to add some pattern or pop of colour you can use tiles on feature walls or behind basins as a splashback. These come in a variety of different colours, styles, and patterns. Though, if you do prefer a clean wall look, they can be used on the floor instead.


You could add woven baskets in your bathroom which function as a storage feature to use for towels, handtowels, or bathroom utilities. Furthermore, you could add a wooden ladder into your bathroom which is a great way to hang towels. Adding rustic features into the bathroom is becoming popular, if you do not use too much if it, you can still create a minimalistic bathroom balanced with modern features.


If you are looking for a luxurious experience in your bathroom, adding marble is the perfect fit and homeowners are loving it! It is timeless and really showcases the bathroom, potential buyers go crazy over it. Glass and marble complement each other well, creating a simplistic nature in the bathroom.

Warm tones

Once you have established your basic bathroom, many people add features that provide a warmth balance. Sometimes all white and grey can feel cold. Which is why people like to add some colour to warm the space up. Using a desert inspired colour palette can still create the minimalistic feel to the bathroom and works well against white bathroom fittings.

Indoor plants

If you feel like your bathroom is missing an element of green, why not add some indoor plants into your decoration. The pop of colour can create a great interior space. Investing into indoor plants can breathe life and compliment the space. Plants pair well with almost any theme you choose for your bathroom whether it is minimalistic or not, it adds a rustic chic to a modern bathroom.

Sprucing up your bathroom is easy. You can either renovate your whole bathroom or just change the layout and colour scheme. Whatever you choose, a clean crisp clutter free bathroom is the perfect minimalistic feel.

I cannot fathom the amount of work put in by Virtu Homes over the time in securing the perfect home for my family. After the first initial meetings we are always skeptical that something would always put the spanner in the works in getting the home we wanted. Virtu Homes not only listened to everything we wanted in a home but also went far beyond with the final product. Absolutely wonderful people who have done everything we could have hoped for in providing our beautiful home.

Just genius. Everything that was provided to us by the team at Virtu Homes was 100% on the money and we are greatly satisfied with the results of our new home. We have a lot of guests usually and by taking into account our many family gatherings, they were able to provide a stylish and spacious home fit for a royal visit, let alone our own. Highly recommended.

I couldn’t be any happier with the work of Virtu Homes with the supply of my husband’s and my dream house. After talks with so many other firms who could not identify the right feel for our intended home, we were completely bowled over by the professional practice in providing the home Virtu has. Minimal fuss and we moved into an incredible house with ease. Virtu Homes we strongly recommend as the go-to business for the best living.
