The contemporary minimalist life style is becoming a popular choice amongst millennial’s who want their homes to depict how they live. Here are 5 ways on how you can translate this concept in spaces:
1. Going for multipurpose spaces
Contemporary spaces are mostly dual-purposed, and as a person who lives in this era and appreciates minimalism, using dichotomy is probably a go-to by now. The living room come gym in this image is an excellent example. Featuring the best of both worlds, you can make the most of your space by taking inspiration from the expert duology articulated in this space.
2. Patterning with minimal textures
Do you know what makes a space ‘maximalist?’ It’s the use to too much tactile texture and warm colours. However, if you do the complete opposite – such as picking simple visual textures and cool, achromatic colours – then you can have a very contemporary minimalist room. The living room in this image is a classic example of how you can translate this technique in your homes.
3. Accessories: tiny but impactful
The accessories that litter a contemporary minimalist life style have to be the perfect balance of functional and aesthetically pleasant. They should not be frou-frou and elaborate at all. The two tiny planters featured in this image are an excellent example of how you can go about choosing the décor of your home without being out of context and overwhelming in the least.
4. Out of sight
Part of living like a contemporary minimalist is keeping everything carefully organized. Your home is supposed to be sleek but not completely devoid of a soul. The kitchen featured in this image is a great example. The combination of glossy materials and reflective surfaces makes an instant impact that is both glam, minimalist, and appealing to contemporary sensibilities at the same time.
5. Never overestimating your space
One common mistake that many homeowners make while translating their minimalist contemporary outlook is that they overestimate the size of their space. You have to avoid that at all costs. Understand that you can make a bold statement without going overboard. The stylishly dark tiles and chrome accessories in this bathroom are a great example on how to do this right.
