5 practical tips on how to implement minimalism

By this time. Everyone already knows about minimalism and how it is literally defining lifestyles all over the world. On the surface, it seems like a very dry and boring way to live, but in reality, there’s a lot of thought that goes into creating a minimalist space. Anybody can take the unnecessary elements away, but it takes true vision to design a space with minimal to zero embellishments. If you’re intrigued, then here are 5 practical tips on how you can implement this aesthetic:

 

1. Being consistent works

So, when you’re working with a design concept that promotes simplicity at the level that minimalism does, you need to be consistent with how you implement it. Don’t just focus on a single nook and clutter away the rest of the space. You can translate this style successfully only when you can carry it through most of your space without succumbing to any temptation for extra-ness and décor.

 

2. Create visual relations

In terms of space, form, and design, the minimalist aesthetic is best expressed when you create visual connections between different surfaces. Since there is very little room to be creative with the décor, the only thing you can work with are the inherent design elements that are essential for the space to function. You can easily use those to your advantage. For example: using the same materials on the kitchen bar façade and floor, matching finishes for the ceiling and part of the accent wall, etc.

 

3. Better visual interaction

Once again, the main handicap of minimalism (i.e. lack of design elements) is also one of its biggest strengths. This is because you actually have a lot of room to explore all the different relationships between available elements. Therefore, you can experiment a lot with what you end up designing. You can actually look at how most of your spaces interact with each other before settling on the final outcome.

 

4. Focusing on communication

Visual and spatial connections are two of the most important elements of a minimalist interior design. What are you left with when you’ve stripped away all the unnecessary elements? How can you efficiently use what is left? And most important of all: how can you make something aesthetically appealing out of what little you’re actually given.

 

5. Bending the rules

When all is said and done, minimalism still allows you to be creative within the boundaries that it has already defined for you. Yes, you have a very rigid framework to work with in the first place, but you can use elements like harmonised asymmetry, shades of achromatic hues, and creative lighting to get excellent results.
