Minimalism is in! While it’s easy for homes to become cluttered, minimalism helps you to avoid this by encouraging a lifestyle where you embrace the clear open spaces with as few belongings and items as possible. This helps to create a space where you’re happy to kick back and relax rather than being surrounded by mess which can induce feelings of claustrophobia and stress. However, there are certain aspects of home design that can’t be done away with. So how do you incorporate the essentials into your home without making things look overwhelming? Read on to find out!
Opt for Blinds Over Curtains
While natural light is brilliant and highly desirable in the day, you’re likely to going to want to block it out while you’re trying to sleep in the early hours of the morning. However, curtains can often prove bulky and space consuming. Instead, you should opt for blinds. These can be rolled up and out of the way when not in use and offer a sleek look when they are pulled down. Browse a range of different blinds to find the right color and material to fit in with the rest of your home design. While Venetian blinds tend to prove the most common in home design, there are other options out there, such as roller blinds, Roman blinds, panel glides, vertical blinds, and honeycomb shades.
Use Neutral Color Schemes
The color that you choose to paint your interiors can dramatically affect how spacious your interior design appears. Excessive use of contrasting, bright colors can make even an empty space feel small. So, attempt to keep your color scheme to two or three colors at most and, if possible, opt for neutral tones.
Invest in Clever Storage Solutions
We all have certain belongings that can’t be done away with, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that we should leave them sprawled out across our home or in a state of disarray. Instead, we should invest in clever storage solutions that will create the illusion of a minimalist property, even if you do have plenty of possessions. Everything will be kept out of the way, in its designated place, and will be simple to find when needed. Start with your clothing: a well-organized wardrobe can make all the difference to your bedroom. Consider options with sliding doors to save space and drawers or shelves as well as traditional rails. Invest in a divan bed with under bed storage. You can use this otherwise wasted space to store shoes or extra bedding. Convert unused cupboards into deep bookshelves by removing the doors and installing shelves. Alternatively, they could be storage space for coats. No more coat racks blocking hallways and landings! All you need to do is fix hangers or hooks onto the walls.
These are just a few sage pieces of advice when it comes to incorporating minimal design into your property. So try them out! Your space will feel like a tranquil and calming haven in next to no time!
