Maximalism might be the newest fad but nothing can ever beat the classy simplicity of the minimalistic style. It’s extremely captivating in its plainness. The straightforwardness of minimalism is what started the entire modern revolution, and to this day you can find small aspects of it everywhere. Today, we’ll be looking at 5 ways to get a perfectly clean-cut interior design.
1. Embrace the origins
The idea of minimalism was actually inspired by the Japanese Zen ideology. There was a lot of emphasis on whisking out the unnecessary aspects of your life in that original concept that were successfully interpreted in the western version of minimalism. So you can definitely take inspiration from this authentic side of this concept in your interior design. The shouji inspired door in this interior design is a great example.
2. Not completely berefet
There is a fine difference between too stark and too full when it comes to designing clean-cut minimal interior designs. So when you’re designing on this concept, you should always make sure to bring in a homely vibe so that your space doesn’t look too austere or un-livable. You can do that by strategically spreading out your daily essentials throughout the space.
3. The floor conundrum
Sleek contemporary tiled floors do not exactly match the minimal aesthetic. They’re slightly too modernized for that. However, warm wood textured floors in many alternative surfaces are a great way to imbue a sense of warmth in your minimal interiors while still keeping them perfectly clean-cut in the process.
4. Smooth surfaces
Just like too many cooks can spoil the broth, similarly too many textures can destroy your clean-cut minimal aesthetic. So it is always recommended that you use as little texture as possible in minimal interiors. Instead, invest in smooth surfaces that that can give you a modern look and complement the otherwise simple design of the surroundings.
5. White and wood
White and wood are a beloved color and material scheme for clean-cut minimal style interior designs. It is extremely simple and plain, but it is also very impactful at the same time. Moreover, the stark contrast between the two colors or surfaces is used to create an element of interest in the overall design.
