How to Make a Minimalist Room With 8 Easy Tips – Have you been in a bad mood lately? Continue to be less comfortable when resting at home? Before packing your things and moving house, it’s better to look at the area around the room first! Starting from the items tucked in there to the hanging wall decorations, is that what makes you feel uncomfortable to be at home?
If so, then it’s time to immediately switch to a minimalist room design. No need to change the house and its design, just start from a private room first. After your mood is back up, then another room can follow.
Minimalist style always prioritizes simplicity. That means, our homes should be filled with items to a minimum.
The interior is not just furniture to decorate the room, but also must have a very high use value.
By having versatile furniture, it will be far from being redundant, whether in terms of the rest of the room or money.
If there are some items that are no longer used, then you can move them to another room, sell them, or just donate them to people in need.
But this stage is only the beginning of the tips and ways to make our room minimalist.
There are still other important things that you must think about and do, which we have described below in full.
Change Walls With Base Colors
Bright colors like white along with other types of earthy neutrals – including grayish whites and pastels – are the hallmark of a minimalist room.
Although you are allowed to choose other bright colors as a complement, it must be limited to only 1 type of color, for example green, blue, yellow, and so on.
Avoid using dark paint colors because they can reduce light reflections so that you won’t get a minimalist impression.
Even these bright colors can improve your mood that has been damaged. In the long run, you can avoid stress. The more your mood improves, the easier it will be to design another room thanks to the inspiration that keeps coming.
Add Focus Point
In your room, make sure there is an empty area so that the main point can be seen more clearly.
For example, for a bedroom, the main point is usually a bed. As for the living room, usually a sofa chair.
The empty area is considered an important element in minimalist home decor because it is able to interact with objects and determine the overall appearance.
Simply put, the empty area will increase the beauty of the main furniture in the room.
So, don’t necessarily fill the empty area with other furniture – just because there’s still extra space.
But in the world of minimalist architecture itself, this empty area is deliberately applied.
If you can’t do this part, then the empty area as written above will never reach you.
So, make sure you first choose the types of furniture that you use the most. Then, get rid of the ones you don’t need.
After that, start rearranging your room. Remember, always provide an empty area so that the furniture you always use gets your full attention.
This greatly affects our psychology of course! Imagine when you enter the room to sleep, but there are unused items scattered there, then your focus and intentions may be diverted.
On the other hand, the main furniture that gets your full attention will keep you focused on your goals, whether it’s for resting in bed, or working from home at your desk.
Designing a minimalist home does not mean we have to avoid decorations with bright colors in it.
The rule is that we must use decorative elements as accents while not overloading the house with various kinds of furniture and additional toys.
In other words, this decorative accent should help make the focal point stronger, and not be a distraction.
You can add paintings on the walls, pillows on the sofa, patch lamps, and so on. As long as it still provides high use and artistic value, why not?
Cleanliness and Flat Surface
Most of the furniture and objects in a minimalist home display clear, clean lines and curves, and have a flat surface.
Be careful playing with white tiles, because they can leave stains that are difficult to remove.
Especially in the kitchen area, there will be many stains that are difficult to clean, so they need more attention when cleaning every time.
All furniture such as cabinets, drawers, and windows must be well defined. All of that of course can be supported with a flat floor surface with neat lines.
This element will make the light more clearly blend with the room, so it can improve our mood from time to time.
Play With Textures
If for example, just one type of color makes you feel bored, then you can add interesting things such as different textures.
An example of this texture is in the form of upholstered headboards on the bed. The headboard can use a different color (eg black). Because our wall paint has used neutral colors, it tends to blend with almost any type of color.
Another example is a mint green textured wallpaper that can complement each other with the headboard of the bed you have.
This texture also applies to the floor of the room you live in. Look for tiles other than white, or better yet, use wood floors in natural colors.
Let the Light In
An empty window is our friend when playing with a minimalist room design. For example, a window that is not filled with decoration can let in maximum light.
The only decoration that must be pinned on the window is the curtains. Also make sure the color blends with the main furniture embedded in your room.
If you don’t want to take the risk of choosing a color combination, then just match the color of the curtains with the main interior, for example with a bed or sofa.
Supporting Small Items
Remember, these small items must have a high use value, so that your minimalist room is not wasted.
One of the small items that are always embedded and needed in any type of home room are sofa cushions, glasses in the living room, and sitting lamps.
When set against a white background or neutral tone, even simple objects stand out.
As a result, these small objects will become ‘helpers’ for the center of attention to the main furniture in the room we are designing.
If you have done the tips above, then it is certain that your room now looks minimalist. Not excessive, looks neat, and with a variety of furniture and items that we need and use everyday.tags: minimalist house
