There’s nothing more relaxing than coming home to a spruced space. A lot of people these days are turning towards minimalist decor as we live a busy lifestyle and it requires a lot of time and effort keeping our homes neat and clean. This design style is all about less is more i.e. less stuff and more space.
Clean lines, uncluttered spaces and muted colours are all hallmarks of minimalism. Simplicity is the key by keeping it to the bare minimum. Minimalism does not have to be boring or all about neutrals, if implemented correctly it can look warm, rich and elegant. Here are some home decor ideas that you could use to create minimalist space.
Choose Monochromatic Colour Schemes
Monochromatic colour scheme refers to a one colour scheme that is created using different tones of that colour. You could choose neutrals for encouraging calm, soft blue hues that promises rest and relaxation, warm shades of caramel and cream, or can opt for a classic all white.
Take a look around your home. Look at the furniture, portraits, objects, bills, keys, empty cups, random objects on the kitchen counter. To truly embrace the minimalist design, all these stuff needs to be cleared. Start by listing what are the essential items, what can be eliminated, how to reduce storage and start by organizing it accordingly.
Dare To Go Bare
We don’t find bare walls in Indian homes. The house doesn’t look decorated if we leave the walls bare. However, there is slow thrust towards bare and clean walls. Keeping the walls bare can accentuate the design element of the room. Minimalist design is all about bare beauty, so don’t be afraid to go bare.
Use Different Texture
Playing with different texture is the key to a minimalist home decor, as a minimalist room can look bland and cold with less items and subdued colour tones. Fur throws, textured wallpaper, velvets, wooden floors can be used to make it look more welcoming instead of bare.
Flat Surfaces And Open Spaces
Open spaces, clean lines and flat surfaces are considered an important element in minimalist decor. Traditionally Indian homes had closed kitchens to keep out the smoke from the home. However millennials are now opting for open kitchen with clean lines. The kitchen is compact with well-defined cabinets, drawers and windows which is eye pleasing.
