6 Interior Design Tips for a Hardcore Minimalist
Since minimalism is slowly becoming all the rage in terms of a successful trend, today we will focus on 6 interior design tips for a hardcore minimalist.
- Lay on a texture
While minimalist design may reinforce a genre of simple customization to complicated designs, which does not mean that we cannot add a bit of a flair in the simplicity itself. If you take a look at the image below, you will notice the minimal vibe of this design has been expertly retained and presented within the context of the concept with the help of a material come texture application. While the majority of the interior is white and unornamented, it is the simple cladding of an exposed brick wall that adds that certain flair and keeps this interior from being a minimal train wreck.
While modern and contemporary styles of design can break out of that metaphorical box by designing outside the conventional boundaries, minimalism has to tread the lip of this critical balance to retain its integrity. In the interior below, you would see a bedroom designed in the image of a minimal concept, where the only design element is the wooden headboard come ceiling above the bed. The design is nothing complicated, but it does showcase the earnest design and integrity of the minimal design concept.
- Go easy on the accessories
The very essence of a minimal design dictates the counterfeit of all unnecessary accessories that are set up as a premise for the design within the context of a room. These may or may not include physical aspects of vanity – the dressing table, side table, etc. so in the end your space is striped off all the things that are not needed for day to day conveniences. The image below sows the perfect representation of such an interior, where the only aspects of physical décor include a bed, and a simply designed book shelf.
For the concept of minimalism to actually work, there needs to be a simple but holistic integration within all aspects of the interior. This includes the walls, the furniture, the ceiling and of course the floor. Only when each individual element of design works in tandem with the rest can we get the true minimal experience.
Most of the modern minimalistic interior design themes make use of high glass materials and lighter color palates. This may result in a bit of a starkness within the ambience, so make sure to parry that out with appropriate but subtle design interventions.
While minimalism is all about focusing on the decontamination of uselessness, it is also very much about focusing on the pragmatic aspect of design in a completely earnest and unadorned way.
