Home Tips

Minimalist

Minimalist interior design is one of the architectural centerpieces of the 20th century. Spare and streamlined while still being inviting, minimalism is charming in almost any space. With less clutter to wade through and mentally process, the innate beauty of each piece of furniture or art in the home really starts to stand out.

Colours

Plain or muted colours are best suited for this theme. Keeping to the same colour or not more than two colours is the key to successful execution. Choosing an accent colour for your furniture and other accessories will easily create a focal point for your home.

Furniture

The keyword here is ‘minimal’ so pick only furniture pieces you need, not want. Smaller items will also lessen the bulk so you can have more space for what’s truly important. Keeping all surfaces clutter free will make a difference to the overall presentation.

Floor

Tiles, marble, timber or laminate flooring work equally well for this concept but keep to clean and simple colours to uphold the essence of the theme.

Storage

Ideally, keep everything out of sight with clever storage systems or furniture such as storage beds.

Wall and Decor

The clean colours will make any wall decoration stand out so choose something less complicated but meaningful to make great conversation topics.
