5 Unique Ways To Accessorize In A ‘Minimal’ Way

The minimal style is very soulful and neutral, but the lack of accessorizing can sometimes make the space feel bereft. The contemporary versions of the minimal style are much more up-to-date on the accessorizing front. Designers have come up with clever and simple ways to make the most of small decorative objects within the context of this theme. Further, we’ll take a look at 5 unique ways you can accessorize in a ‘minimal’ way.


1. Small gallery wall

The living area of any HDB has two major focal points – one is the media wall, and the other one is the back wall behind the sofa set. Leaving the latter completely empty is going to make your space seem incomplete and poorly designed. You can decorate it with a gallery wall that can match the inherent minimal aesthetic; i.e. bold, black frames, soothing landscape pictures and large white borders coupled with an asymmetric formation.


2. Into the narrows

Large, focused decorative objects tend to look weird and out of place in a minimalistic setting. So the best way to feature your small trinkets is by designing narrow shelves in a mostly empty wall and place all your baubles there. This technique allows you to accessorize to your heart’s content without actually diminishing the value and aesthetic of the minimalistic style.


3. Going in-built

While the minimalistic style of design is plain and simple from the offset, there are no hard and fast rules that dictate you cannot use a bit of simple geometry to spice things up. The most inherent way to accessorize a minimalistic style interior design is by using in-built techniques like etched designed on wardrobe leaves, shelves and more.


4. Lighting fixtures

There are tons of relevant lighting fixtures available in the market these days. Some of them are quite suitable for being the focal points of a minimalistic style interior design. However, you must make sure that the fixture you choose is not too elaborate or decorative. A sleek, simple design with understated beauty suits this kind of aesthetic the best.


5. Backsplash by design

When it comes to kitchen designs, backsplash matters a lot. But when your chosen aesthetic is minimalism, it can be challenging to choose the right design. You can use alternating backsplash surfaces if your kitchen is big enough. One side can feature a Peranakan style tiling while the other can be simple to add some contrast.
