If you consider yourself a minimalist, it can sometimes be a little difficult to find home decor that suits your taste and fits into your house without making it feel cluttered. Keeping a minimalist design style within your home can be very calming, but it can be challenging to make everything flow together.
You may know you want your home to have a minimalist style, but might not know how to execute that. Luckily there are tons of helpful tips and tricks out there! Here are 3 interior design tips for minimalists.
Use Plants As Decor
Instead of putting up knick-knacks and other decor that serves no other function other than looking nice, use live plants as decor to add a beautiful neutral green to any room. House plants are also great because they help to make the air quality better in your home, so you really can’t go wrong. Just be sure that if you own pets, you choose plants that are not toxic to them.
One of the most notable qualities of minimalist decor is that everything serves a function. This way you will know that you don’t have any extra clutter that doesn’t need to be there because everything in your home has a purpose and nothing is just there taking up space.
For example, if one of your children wants to learn a new instrument and you decide to buy a piano for them, the piano can also serve as a beautiful form of home decor if you put it in your living room, dining area, or another common space. Considering functionality whenever placing any objects in your home and you will be able to keep your space neutral and calm.
Utilize Storage Space
Keeping a minimalist decor style can sometimes be difficult when you think about all of the things you need in your home but don’t want to have lying around all the time. Storage areas are the perfect solution for this, because you can just put unsightly items or things that don’t fit into your decor style away whenever you aren’t using them.
Use closets, drawers, and cupboards as much as you can but make sure to keep them nice and organized.
If you don’t have much room in your home for storage, you can use wooden boxes painted a neutral color that matches your style to store things that you don’t want sitting out all the time. Making sure things are put away and tidy will really give your home the minimalistic feel you crave.
Interior design isn’t always easy, especially when you have a very specific way you like things to look. But if a minimalist look is what you are going for, hopefully these tips can help! Thanks to the organizations linked above for consulting.
