Building a new home, having an older one renovated, or are just plain wondering why your current home’s interior seems so mismatched and chaotic, requires taking a closer look at its design.
Many different styles are out there and it could be a tough choice. Just stick to one if you want your home to look better. To truly go for something clean and simple, a minimalist design is the way to go.
What is Minimalism?
Simplicity defines minimalism. In any kind of art, it’s always very clean, ordered, and extremely sparse. In literature, minimalism involves simple, direct to the point, and sparse writing. Readers often read between the lines to understand the story. In the visual arts, a hallmark of minimalism is in geometric shapes as well as basic colours.
Minimalism in Interior Design
A minimalist interior design makes use of a very clean and simple design to your house. Clutter is the enemy here, and you don’t want to make any part look messy.
Such designs usually utilise black or white colours, but some also have bright shades used to accent the monochrome. Either way, the importance is that it would not look chaotic to the eye.
Less Clutter, More Space
There is less dependence on textile materials, and more of steel, concrete, glass, leather and a perhaps a bit of wood. The effect of this design makes your home seem much more spacious.
With less clutter of furniture, your living room will look bigger. The usage of glass and stainless steel on your balustrades can free up your vision of the interior that stairways would have otherwise blocked.
While it may seem very pretty, this design is not quite for everyone. It requires a very organised person to avoid any clutter. For some, it may be relaxing and even meditative but it could also be unnerving for others.
In the end, it depends on you. Choose wisely and remember that the most important thing is that you like what you see in your home.
