Embracing Simplicity

Clean and simple designs are all the rage these days. People are trading in elaborate and lavish furniture pieces for raw materials and items that focus on simplicity. And bathrooms are no exception. Traditional bathroom vanities with their ornate and excessive features are becoming less and less popular. Sleeker and more modern designs are taking over, making minimalist vanities the next installment in our bathroom trends series.

Minimalist design got its start way back in the early 60s as a rejection to the growing commercialization of society. Designers wanted to break away from the traditional sense of style and eliminate excessive and overly decorative details to focus more on simplicity and functionality. The phrase “less is more” is often times attributed to this design style; taking away unnecessary element that serve no real purpose to the design and instead only adding things that are needed. This style is still very much alive and taking over just about every room in the house.
