The Guide To Modern Minimal Living
January 19, 2016
There are tons of benefits in living in a minimally styled home. It’s visually pleasing, easy-to-maintain and it gives your mind a well-deserved peace after a long day at work.
The minimalist theme is one of the hardest themes to abide to as it takes a lot of skills, restraint and a whole lot of discipline to keep things simple and minimal. This style may not go well with homeowners who have many items to store at home, or you’ll risk spending a sum of carpentry for storage solutions.
If you’re ready to live in a room that oozes sophistication and elegance, this how you can increase the appeal of your home:
1. Go for Clean Surfaces and Neutral Colours
Light, neutral colours lend an airy, open feel. Do away with confusing knick-knacks or bright accents.
2. Have Essential Pieces of Furniture
Muted colours when paired with little furniture creates an almost zen atmosphere of simplicity.
3. Let Natural Light Seep In
Bright, airy homes are popular among homeowners and it’s not hard to see why. It’s moodlifting, breathes life and lights up corners of the house.
4. Have Open Spaces
Open spaces make the floor plan look visually spacious. If you need to demarcate spaces, opt for subtler options such as with foldable panels or a rug.
5. A Quirky Piece Is Fine
Going minimal doesn’t mean you do away with art or décor pieces. For wall art, keep it simple and make sure its size is less than 20% of the wall area. Objects such as vases or floor lamps are fine as well.
