Bathrooms are the only rooms in the home that can be sterile without conveying unfriendly feelings. In fact, most bathroom remodeling projects include layouts and designs that aim to make this part of the home particularly crisp and sharp.
It’s often a matter of personal aesthetics. It’s mostly a matter of feeling the purity only architectural clean lines can bring to the bathroom. Clean lines – often to the point where the bathroom has a clinical look, help people feel clean. They are also mood boosters since bathrooms with clean lines have a tendency to relax.
While nobody likes sterilized spaces in the home, remodeling projects in the bathroom are a category of their own. And it’s easy if you think that you can combine materials and ideas to get that so sought-after crispy look without making the space unfriendly. Let’s see how you can keep balances and enjoy clean lines in the bathroom, without feeling the room hostile.
One of the secrets to have clean lines in the bathroom without making the space cold is to bring in some natural materials. Wood is, surely, one of the top choices due to it elegance, charm, and warmth. Since the fixtures are made of porcelain, you only need to worry about the accessories, like the towel holder, the walls, the flooring, the bath cabinets. Prefer acrylic, metal, timber – nothing too intense.
Put some limits to the color schemes
Choosing the right colors for the space will either make or break your bathroom renovation. Once again, prefer neutrals. Natural things, colors included, have a tendency of making rooms feel soothing. Whites, blacks, wood colors, greys are excellent choices. Monochromatic schemes are ideal when you try to create clean lines. Of course, greens and blues – other colors too, can still make a bathroom modern. But if you like clean lines, prefer neutrals, focusing mostly on whites with a splash of wood and black to make the room more interesting.
Choose the right fixtures
To get clean lines in the bathroom, choose fixtures with clean lines. Avoid ornaments and dated styles, like baroque, that totally contradict the style you want to introduce to your bathroom. The fixtures may be rounded or have corners, and it’s best if they are white to give this crispy look.
Get simple furniture
Keep things simple when it comes to the bathroom furniture too. Forget ornate. Incorporate the less is more architectural norm to achieve your goal. Your storage space may be as simple as a long open shelf under the countertop. Or, a minimal closet. Don’t fill the space with furniture. Prefer modern towel hooks or, even better, get a towel ladder. Place a wooden stool next to the tub to keep folded towels or shampoos. If you prefer a shower cabinet, prefer an all-glass one, perhaps with black elements – or a grid style.
Pay attention to the bathroom layout
The bathroom design must be simple too. There must be some symmetry and not counters that travel around corners or in other odd shapes. The lines of all fixtures must be sharp and the layout must be functional. The latter is necessary for all bathrooms. What will make a bathroom crispy clean is an approach to minimalism. Keep only the things you need in the bathroom. If the room is small, settle for small fixtures and give them some breathing space. If the room is big, you can ask your bathroom renovation contractor to place a large counter but don’t overcrowd the space.
