Minimalism in the interior: 5 practical tips

Interest in minimalistic style is returning. Tired of noise, bustle, and an abundance of information and things, we pay special attention to laconic forms and a restrained palette.

The interior in the spirit of soft minimalism is the opposite of modern life, full of events and information. Returning home allows you to find a sense of calm, rest, and recuperate.

Functionality. Reduction to basics is one of the pillars of the style of minimalism. The principle of functionality is put at the forefront of the design. Having decided to create a minimalistic interior, it is worth starting with an analysis of each room: note what is really necessary, and remove all the superfluous. The result is the perfect basis for a concise design. The principle of “doing more with less effort” is a cornerstone of a minimalist design strategy.

Form. Simple shapes are another key component of minimalist design. For everything that has more than four sides, experts advise replacing it with squares and rectangles. This is especially important in the bedroom, where we need to feel as relaxed as possible. Ordinary curtains should be replaced with roller blinds, and also make sure that the frame and headboard are simple in shape, without extravagant patterns. In principle, since the main and most important part of the bed is the mattress, it is quite possible to have it without a headboard.​ ​

Color ​palette. Bright, clean, white – this is how we usually describe the colors that we associate with minimalism. In fact, the color scheme is more important than the real color. Minimalism in color is sticking to two or three shades in a palette. In addition, simple color schemes usually make people feel more comfortable.

That is ok. In the average house, chaos is created: the place is occupied by books and magazines that we do not read, clothes that we do not wear, donated things that we do not use, and unwashed dishes in the sink. But the less cluttered the space is, the easier it is to restore order and the calmer we feel. Throw away everything unnecessary and make sure that there are enough storage spaces for the remaining things.​

​Furniture. Furniture takes up most of the space and greatly affects its perception. In addition, it is often the most expensive element of the interior. Choose functional objects, simple shapes, and pure colors to create a comfortable space for the eye and habitat.
