How to apply the minimalist decor at home?

Very popular with many homes, minimalism is a practical and refined style that consists of offering a certain sobriety to its interior. The advantage of this type of decoration is that it can be suitable for any room and any type of home. In fact, minimalism is mainly based on functionality by emphasizing space and light. In short, eccentricities have no place at all in a minimalist decor. But then, how to adopt it at home?


What are the basics of minimalist decor?

Minimalism is based on the theory of “Less is More”, which means: less is better. This style thus pushes the one who applies it to return to the source and to the simple things of life. The principle of minimalism is to declutter its interior. To do this, it will be necessary to organize tidy and orderly spaces, getting rid of all the decorative elements and all the furniture that are useless to us.

The materials and colors to adopt for a minimalist decoration

As mentioned above, the minimalist decoration advocates sobriety. In this sense, the colors and materials used in this style should also be sober and raw. Therefore, concrete, metal, wood, glass as well as stone are the interesting materials to use. As for the color, we also favor plain and sober colors (white, gray, beige, midnight blue, etc.) and we avoid patterned colors.

What furniture to install to emphasize a minimalist style?

To emphasize the minimalist style in your home, it is absolutely necessary to give preference to modern furniture of simple shape and with clean lines. When installing your furniture, you should consider it both as decorative elements and as useful and practical accessories in everyday life. So, prefer light furniture or even built-in furniture that can be discreet.

Play on the light

In order to play with minimalist decoration, you must also know how to play with light. In fact, you have to consider the light as a decorative element that brings out the aesthetics of the room in question. Also, it is important to favor natural light and therefore to filter it with curtains, canopies or screens. This will then allow you to emphasize the structure as well as the shape of the different elements of the room: furniture, decoration, etc.
