Look around your home. Do you feel like there is just too much going on? Are the designs on your curtains or rugs screaming out "get rid of me"? Is your home décor making you cry inside? Take a deep breath! RE/MAX Masters has the solution for turning your home into a delight with minimalist décor trends.
What is minimalist décor?
A bold, functional, and highly memorable style, minimalist decorating allows for space, lighting, and lesser objects to play equally important roles in the look and feel of your home. Far from being a boring décor style, going minimalist demands that you cut down on your furnishings to the bare essentials. Along with having the bare essentials, having a set of curated objects will deliver the maximum impact you seek.
Here are tips of achieving a minimal interior:
Clear out the clutter
When it comes to clutter it is simple, let go of the items you no longer need and are just taking up space in your home. Many people tend to hoard and hold on to stuff because they "may need it in the future" or it can have sentimental value. However, the first step in having minimalist décor is to get rid of the clutter in your home. Throw away what you do not need, and perhaps donate the stuff that can be used by others.
How about a neutral base
Having the right colour is vital when trying to create a minimalist interior. It is advisable to use subdued hues as a base colour to give the room a clean and fresh look while inspiring a sense of calm. Also consider that yellow undertones tend to give white paint a warmer and creamier appearance, while blue undertones give a crisper look. Space with lots of natural light generally looks warmer, so using a cooler shade of white to balance the room will be a brilliant idea. Bear in mind that if the room has LED or fluorescent lighting it can appear to look cool, therefore you should think about going for a warmer tone. Earth-tone browns, blues, tans, and greens are great colours to compliment the interior.
Quality over quantity
Ever heard of the phrase 'less is more'? This is especially true when it comes to minimalist décor. Before you decide on putting a particular piece in the room you need to consider what the end result will be. Will this piece overpower the room? Will it stand out? Does the piece reflect a minimalist trend? The goal of each piece is to add to creating a space that anyone would want to spend time in. Your décor pieces should be an investment in classics that will last you for many years as current trendy items that become outdated within a few months does not really work with minimalist décor. Simplicity is key.
Invest in stylish storage to hide away the necessities you need but do not want to show off. An attractive piece of storage furniture allows for your hidden chaos to appear chic on the outside. Remember that you should not hoard your goods in your cupboards as eventually, they will turn into clutter. Be minimalist on the inside as much as you apply it to the outside appearance of your rooms.
