Embracing minimalism has its benefits in every room of the home, but none quite so much as the bathroom. Perhaps understandably, we're increasingly looking to create a spa-like space in our bathrooms (no matter the size), and following a minimalist palette is one of the easiest ways to tap into this movement. And nobody does it quite like Victoria Monét.
The Grammy-award-winning artist taught us all how accessible spa bathrooms can be via her space that exhibits statement veined marble and a neutral painted hue. These varying textures, subtle tones, and curated furnishings (that statement curved tub we're looking at you) ensure the space feels minimal and, in turn, therapeutic – and this look is refreshingly easy to replicate.
'A minimalist aesthetic is perfectly suited to the bathroom setting, where a crisp, functional design can help create a retreat where you can switch off from the world,' says bathroom expert Ashley Cooper. 'Simplicity is key with this look – and can be achieved in a number of ways,' – starting with our bathroom color palette.

'A minimalist aesthetic is often considered synonymous with neutral tones. However, I’d recommend avoiding picking brilliant whites, which can often make a space look clinical. Instead, opt for off-whites, surfaces with texture and finishes that mimic natural stone materials such as marble, concrete, and sandstone,' Ashley says.
'The key is to keep the core colors neutral while experimenting with different finishes and shapes.'
Colors aside, keeping our bathrooms uncluttered and furnishings minimalist is key. In Victoria's case, she has kept her countertops tidy with a transparent organizer and sleek liquid soap holders that maintain the minimalist bathroom aesthetic.
'An uncluttered scheme is integral when designing a minimalist bathroom, so adequate storage is a must,' Ashley notes. While we're inspired by Victoria's storage solutions, he also recommends installing under-sink storage and concealed shelving (behind a mirror) to maintain a clean aesthetic.
'Considering bathroom storage in the early planning stages will ensure all your lotions and potions have a designated place and don’t impede on the space,' Ashley says.
'I’d also recommend thinking about how best to store your shower products, as this can often be an afterthought which results in shampoo bottles being left sprawled across the shower tray. And, no matter what you’d choose, I’d recommend keeping items that aren’t used daily in a nearby cupboard or drawer to keep the shower area looking tidy.'
Ashley Cooper is the marketing director at Triton Showers, a market-leading bathroom company that merges style and functionality at an affordable price. The company is known for its comprehensive sustainability drive, on a quest to be carbon net-zero and provide customers with more efficient bathroom products.
