Creating the perfect bathroom requires not only a marriage of form and function but space and aesthetics as well. One broadly appealing look which strikes that happy balance is modern minimalism. Its slimline baths and basins and simple, fuss-free storage solutions not only make efficient use of available space but create an incredibly clean and calming feel.

Bath, Shower and surrounds
Modern minimalism calls for a squared-off bath with thin sides. When choosing a shower, think about the dynamics of the space and consider
what kind of door or entry system is required. Frameless showers create a sense of space and simplicity against a tiled wall. Be sure to go for a
high tray lip to provide a good water seal. As for tiles, choose a crisp, minimal range in black, white or grey. Square shapes (eg the Adesso Degree
Bath) and thin sanitaryware (eg Adesso Urban Basins) help to create a refined, minimal feel, especially in monochromatic colour schemes.
Built-in storage or clean white or black cabinetry is recommended to avoid clutter. Couple this with a thin-sided basin to echo the look of the bath tub.
Showerheads and Tapware
When selecting showerheads and tapware, opt for black or gunmetal with minimal detailing – wall-mounted for the ultimate seamless look. For those seeking a contemporary bathroom, Mico’s Adesso range offers edgy, minimal design as well as functionality. Mico’s bathroom products are
manufactured by world leaders in the industry and bring sought-after European styling to New Zealand within an affordable price range. Also
exclusive to Mico is the Raymor range. This collection is distinguished by its simple, modern design, fine engineering and value for money.
A matching slimline toilet seat, or wall faced toilet and flush plate or button will help complete the look, along with snowy white towels. Be sure to hide toilet brushes and roll holders. Soften the hard edges and materials with a plant or two and set it all off with invisible recessed lighting.
