Who says minimal needs to be boring? In fact, minimalism can have quite a stunning overall appeal when you carry it right in your interior designs. There are small things that can help you add an understated dazzle to the simplicity of this style, and today, we’re here to tell you just how you can go about it. Let’s take a look:
1. Tinkering with window treatments
Going about it a little literally, you can add a dazzling quality to your minimalistic interior designs by selecting the right window treatments. Yes, they have to be on the simpler side, but you can tinker with the opacity. The roller blinds in this image have a bright opacity that stunningly filters the natural light, and becomes a decorative feature in its own right. You can do the same to your own minimal interiors.
2. Lush it up with greens
Since minimalistic interior designs are so neat, uncomplicated and understated, it’s always a challenge to add a little bit of contrast to make them interesting. However, since this aesthetic is such a pioneer of natural objects, going for fresh, bright green planters is an obvious way to add dazzle to its visuals. You don’t have to go overboard – just a small green planter in an obvious space is going to do the trick.
3. Impressing with furniture
These days, trendy minimal and Scandinavian style furniture is on a whole other level of stylish. From chair and consoles to light fixtures and even couches, you’ll find a wide variety of beautiful furnishings to choose from. The best part is that they are all very simple in designs, but their bold alignment and design features make them totally interesting. You can use these as focal points in your minimal interior designs to dazzle!
4. Getting creative with decorative items
There is literally no room for useless items in a minimal interior design. You can take this particular notion to a whole new level by creating décor out of items that you do use every day. It can be your coffee bean collection featured in a place of honor, or it can be any other thing that you use in your daily lives.
5. Use creative lighting
The best way to add an understated dazzle to your minimal interior designs is to use clever lighting tricks to emphasize the visual quality of the space. It can be LEDs, under-cabinet lights or anything that complements the lack of excess.
