Minimalist Interior Design: 4 Top Tips


Minimalism Interior Design continues to be a leader in design decor. The design lends itself to creating a clean uncluttered space. But, like all interior styles, minimalism can also go too far making the space feel cold and unwelcoming. 


By following these tips, you can create a space that feels sophisticated and feels curated all while maintaining warmth. From monochromatic minimalism to clean lines, here’s how to keep your minimalist space warm and welcoming. 

Clear clutter

Functional sleek storage and clean surfaces are where room curating begins. 

Follow the one in one out rule to avoid clutter and maintain a minimalist lifestyle, not just interior design. Attractive storage can make a space functional for living, while still looking chic.

Minimalist furniture

Minimalist furniture follows the look of flat, smooth, and clean lines. Make a statement furniture piece with the simplicity of a shape. It’s important to remember to avoid high colorized colors. Minimalism furniture is where you create a neutral base.

Incorporate Textiles

Using different textiles but in similar tones is where you can bring warmth and interest to the interior. Focusing on quality over quantity and natural fabrics is the best way to contrast the simplicity of furniture with textural interest.

Bring everyday comfort with knitted throws, sheepskin rugs, woven baskets, or textured pillows, just to name a few. Again, functional pieces avoid clutter.

Natural light/ outdoors

Let the outdoors and nature that surrounds you be statement art and the brighter colors come into your space. Take advantage of natural light as it avoids the room looking clinical. It warms up the space while avoiding clutter. If architecturally, you don’t have enough windows using wall mirrors bounces light making the room appear bigger and brighter.

Lastly, remember to keep it simple, less is more when it comes to minimalist interior design!
