While the trendy minimalist style may look fun, it isn’t as simple as it looks. With pared-down aesthetics, it becomes even more important to get all the pieces looking like they belong together, as well as capable of standing out. Here are some easy ways to integrate minimalism into your home:
Light shades and Monochromatic palettes
Select a colour palette that is either white or pale monochromatic colours. Crisp white walls can be soothing. Add beautiful plants and furniture pieces in warm colours to prevent the room from looking cold and stark.
Shop the latest style trends for sofa colours that can help you achieve the minimalist style for your living room. Buy a sofa with lighter shades and monochromatic palettes to achieve the look. Try a sectional. L-shaped sectionals can maximize seating in small spaces, ensuring that there is no wasted space, which could otherwise be utilized functionally. An ottoman to match the sectional can not only serve as seating but also a coffee table.
Go for Drama and Go for Texture
Small, textured furniture pieces and décor can create a cozy feel. White walls are also a great background for bright, textured canvases that make a space feel colourful and bold. Likewise, bold accent furniture can become an interesting centrepiece of an otherwise simple aesthetic. And adding a few statement pieces can give a minimalist room character.
Play with Scale and Colour but Find a Middle Ground
Cool blues and grays can add serene vibes to a white room, while pops of dark colour can add more drama. To set a mood, try rich textured sofas with matching drapes in your otherwise minimalist room.
However, you don’t have to throw away any furniture that doesn’t look minimalist simply because you are restyling your home. Paring down artwork, removing some excess décor, and getting rid of non-essentials can do the trick.
Focus on the View and Lighten Up
Leave the space around windows with a view clean and clear. Minimal interiors highlight any greenery outside the living space and turn windows into art. Make sure that your minimalist rooms have adequate light that keeps them warm, cheerful and bright. Invest in some well-placed floor lamps for further cheerfulness.
Large, bright plants can have plenty of room to grow in open, minimalist layouts with extra lighting from floor lamps. Set against white or monochromatic walls, they can look stunning and bring nature into your home.
Try Some Unique Patterns
Minimalism doesn’t have to mean that you give up on styles or aspects of home furnishings that you love. However, its best to select a handful and combine them with the minimalist aesthetic. There’s no need to ditch visible piping or wooden scaffolding. Interesting lines and geometric patterns can add pops of colour and texture in minimalist spaces. With little else to distract the eye, they can attract attention without becoming overwhelming.
These are a few ways you can make your room look simple but stylish this winter. The minimalist aesthetic will certainly suit the monochromatic hues of this cold season.
