A minimalist living room creates a relaxing atmosphere for the entire family to enjoy and unwind. Do you notice how a clutter-free room instantly brings our stress levels down? Or the opposite how easily we get worked up when we are surrounded by too many things especially things that we don’t really need at the moment?
A minimalist design is ideal when you want to open up space and make it look bigger. This type of design is appealing to most people. It makes use of simple functional pieces, clean lines, classic colors, and keeps you organized with various storage options.
Just because the design is minimal, that doesn’t mean space has to look sparse and empty or devoid of personality. On the contrary, a minimalist design guides you towards a lifestyle that is essentially you and totally functional. The first step in planning a minimalist living room is defining how you intend to use the room. One of the keys to a relaxing minimalist living room is clean and airy colors. Choose 2 to 3 colors, with 1 dominant color and 2 accent colors.
Use a single neutral color for your walls and floors. Not only will this create an open space, but it also creates a serene mood for your room. In terms of texture, plain, and patterns in the same color can be used. When choosing furniture, choose only the furniture that you need. Choose furniture with simple and clean construction. Avoid excesses like ornate carvings, fringe, and other embellishments. You can opt to leave the windows bare. If you really need curtains, opt for roman shades or blinds made of bamboo or other similar material. In a minimalist living room, pin lights are the best way to maintain that clean look while providing sufficient lighting to your room.
