Having a minimalist home and incorporating minimalist home decor are great ways to take an otherwise hectic life and replace it with easy-to-organize, simple changes.
Let me walk you through the best ways to achieve this goal with seven (7) tips for creating a minimalist home.
1. Pick brighter colors
The key to minimalist houses is utilizing space. A good way to trick the eyes into thinking that a room has more space is painting the walls with brighter colors. Dark colors can seem claustrophobic at times, so adding a new, light coat of paint can really make a room feel spacious
2. Pick solid colors
Prints that are too busy or distracting to the eye can detract from your minimalist decor. Play it simple and choose solid colors that complement the entire room.
3. Pick out wall decorations that really pop
Because you are trying to reduce the number of items you hang on your walls, try to pick the decor that really speaks to you. Find pieces that showcase the best parts of your home and get rid of the things that don’t.
4. Choose smaller, nicer pieces of furniture
I touched on this a bit in my previous list, but finding the best pieces of furniture that really give your room some flair is a good starting point for minimalist home decor. Try to focus on sleek but comfortable furniture that gives you what you need but leaves you with more room to breathe.
5. Change up texture
Even though minimalist homes can be beautiful, they can get boring if you’re not careful. While keeping similar color patterns, try to mix up the textures of the furniture and decorations in the home to give the eye some pleasing contrasts.
6. Pick a good base color and build on it
The best way to make the colors in your room to flow nicely is to pick a nice base color to build off of. All of the colors in the room should complement this color.
7. Plan ahead
Study each area of your home and try to imagine what will look good and what won’t. Planning your decor ahead of time can save you a lot of hassle, and it will also keep you from impulse-buying.
