The main features that distinguish any minimalist design are the clean lines, sleek furniture and simple decoration. Applying these features to your living room’s design will help you to achieve the wanted look. In this regard, you should always buy only the things that you will need and I mean only the essential things for sure, the things that you can’t live without to avoid any clutter and if you are redecorating, make sure to get rid of all the things that you don’t use.
When you choose the furniture pieces, make sure to pick the ones that fit your living room’s size, make the simple colors your basic choice and go for the pieces that don’t have many patterns. Don’t forget to include some pillows in your design; living rooms aren’t complete without comfy and stuffed pillows.
If you want to double the minimalist ambience of your living room, make sure to choose the appropriate marble floor and don’t forget the importance of choosing the right lighting fixtures to the ceiling. If you plan to cover the floor with a carpet, avoid putting many pieces of rugs or carpets and use only one carpet instead and remember that the bare surface will emphasizes the beauty of the few pieces that you will place in your living room.
Most of the colors that are used to achieve the minimalist designs are white, grey, creamy or black and white; these colors are so cool, relaxing and give the feeling of peace and quietness. Some people think that adding any cheerful color to the minimalist designs would be a problem, but in fact adding a simple accessory piece with cheerful color like red for example could break the boring that you may feel from the quite colors as time passes.
For example, you can add a colorful carpet, curtain or any other accent or accessory with cheerful color. To achieve the best minimalist design in your living room, use few decor pieces, two or three at maximum will be more than enough and since the number isn’t so big, you should choose meaningful pieces that speak for your personal taste.
For example, you can put a simple green plant to add a warm feeling to your living room’s minimalist design. You can also hang one or two art works on the walls and pay attention to choose the ones that look so special for you.
