Minimalism was designed with small spaces in mind, and less decorative elements allow a home to stand out by itself. This style of décor doesn’t incorporate many accents, accessories, or even furniture items. Colors are monochrome, simple, and in small quantities. It is based around the idea of white as a way to maximize space.

Minimalism generally manifests its décor style in modern, contemporary ways, even though it is possible to find minimalist designs that are retro and more outdated.

The minimalist style appeals to organization and order. But it does so in a more casual, relaxed way that is not present in the case of formal styles of home décor, for example.

This type of décor follows the principles of functional decorating, where a decorative piece is also a usable resource. The design highlight is placed in the building structure itself, and efforts are made to preserve a maximization of space in an open layout as much as possible.

The common concept of colors in home décor do not apply to the minimalist style. Like a blank canvas, a minimalist room uses light and bright colors to increase the perception of space and establish a neutral palette for other elements of design.

While white is the color of choice, off-whites, teals, pale greens, and blues are other possible options that appeal to this type of home décor.

Minimalist furniture appeals to clean lines and geometric shapes, generally of dark colors to make full contrast of the brightly colored walls. In this way, light affects a minimalist room in a special way, increasing perception of its size and placing our attention on the functional furniture – the only decorative elements used in this style.

Just like furniture follows clean lines, smooth textures, and glossy materials, fabric from the minimalist style is also plain, with no prominent textures to distract the eye.

If you are a “less is more” kind of person, the minimalist style may appeal to you. Visit our Pinterest Board and get inspired.
