Minimalist Interior Design

Minimalist interior design is related to modern interior design. Its principle is based around less is more and achieved by using the bare essentials to create a simple and uncluttered space. This interior design style typically combines an open plan space, lots of light and functional furniture. 

Key features of this design style are:

•    Crisp and clean with different textures to create interest
•    Organised space, well planned storage and clutter free
•    Simple, well defined colour scheme that is generally monochromatic  

Creating a calm and uncomplicated environment

The key principle of minimalism is simplicity. Everything in a minimalist room has its function. The lack of clutter can make spaces appear larger and cleaner, free from distractions. Creative storage solutions allow you to keep everything you need tucked away.

Free from trends, a minimalist room will never go out of style. It can be adapted to suit any budget – few items need to be bought, but you can choose how expensive they are. 

Minimalism also allows you to use your home's architecture to your advantage. Often perfect for open-plan spaces, it allows you to use subtle elements as focal points. The neutral colour scheme combined with the intentional use of space can make the most of a room's natural light.

Overall, this creates an environment that is restful and restrained, while still practical. As well as modern interior design, minimalist styling is similar to Scandinavian design, though the latter is more focused on natural materials, different textures and neutral colours.
