It’s easy for master bathrooms to get neglected because they are used so often. It doesn’t really make sense when you say it out loud but if you think about it, it’s true. Because a master bathroom is a personal space rarely seen by guests, on top of the fact that it’s used frequently by EVERYONE, it often gets used and abused and doesn’t end up looking so hot. But a master bathroom should be calming space. Even if it does need to be functional, it doesn’t mean that it should be ugly or cluttered. So today we’re talking about ways to try to lighten up and declutter a master bath so that it doesn’t feel like it’s closing in on you when you walk into it.
The first very simple way to streamline the look of your master bathroom is by keeping the color scheme neutral and monochromatic. Tone on tone works for a functional space like this and is actually best for color when it comes to make up. So don’t worry about figuring out ways to add pops of color or crazy pattern, just keep it chill. It will function best that way in the end.
Even though there are like a million fun shower curtains out there, glass is always better in a master bath. More specifically, frameless glass. In the evolution of glass, you’re not pigeonholed with your glass options anymore. Glass can work in a shower and in a tub/shower combo. You can also make it pretty without all the hardware and do the frameless glass for either scenario. This will make a huge impact on the look over your bathroom. Not only does it elevate the style but it will immediately open up the space to make it feel more airy.
While this next tip can go more modern, there are definite ways to keep it within the transitional style. It won’t hold up in a traditional style bathroom but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t look good! Wall mounted vanities immediately open up a bathroom and will instantly give the illusion of more space. We’ll admit that it’s not the simplest swap since it does involve plumbing changes, but if it fits into your style, it really is a cool look that will work for you.
This next little tidbit relates to mirrors but gives you options! We are huge fans of countertop to ceiling frameless mirrors that have the lighting inset. It adds a ton of reflection in your space and is visually much cleaner than a framed mirror (no matter how pretty!) However, if that look or even the cost of that look doesn’t work for you, selecting a mirror with integrated LED lighting is another way to visually declutter your master bath by eliminating the visual noise extra layers can create.
Final tip: Chill out, folks! We all need some chill time. :)
