In today’s world, we want bigger and better. We want more than last year with the newest and hottest items. When it comes to our living areas, we practice those same habits. Over time we clutter and cramp our spaces without even realizing it.
There is something beautiful about a minimalistic design. It whispers simple and clean without being boring or dull. Minimalism calls for thoughtful curation and clutter-free spaces, which results in a more calming, livable, and nurturing environment.
Here are four minimalistic design ideas to clean up and enhance your living space.
Try choosing a specific type of metal or wood and match it throughout the entire room, from table legs and upholstery studs to wall frames and plant pots. This will create a cohesive look in a minimalistic space that naturally has fewer items to weave in repeating colors, patterns, or themes.
Minimalist design requires maximum free space. Furniture that does more than one job, like a daybed or a couch that has custom-built drawers or storage cabinets within it, is a great option for a space-saving design for a multifunctional living space.
Decorative Statement Piece
A bold statement piece like a table or console allows you to tie your décor together. Choose a piece that matches the rest of your décor in shape, style, material, pattern, or color. A statement coffee table with a lift-up surface or extra-built shelving is another great way to include storage without compromising the look and feel of your living room design.
Modern Light Fixtures
Minimalism goes hand-in-hand with modern design style. Choose a light fixture that is understated yet sleek and visually interesting. Add enough light fixtures to have the room well-lit but not too many, or you will overcrowd the space defeating the purpose of a minimalistic aesthetic.
A minimalistic design is great for your living room space because that is where you generally spend the most time. You want to bind your space together with the most necessary items while still making it breathable.
