Embrace Empty Spaces
Empty spaces in any room of your house bring the temptation to fill up. At first, it will be awkward; you feel like there are so many pieces that are missing. Before you embrace minimalism, the spaces will feel cold and boring. However, with time, you will learn to appreciate the beauty in empty spaces and see simplicity and sleekness.
Irrespective of how you view it, a minimalist home interior design offers more than the emptiness most of us take it for. You need to think of this design, not as an empty white box, but as a stellar functional design that artistically showcases the beauty of your room and creates a simple way of living.
In essence, having empty spaces in your room is a simple way of removing all unnecessary items and stripping the room to its bare essentials. The design started in the 20th century as a replacement for overly-thought designs. The pared-down aesthetics amplifies simplicity and enhances function. Having empty spaces after a home design project inspires peace in a room.
Form and Function
Minimalists say less is more. Mies van der Rohe, one of the German designers, to embrace empty room spaces used glass and steel in wide open spaces to created unembellished visions of the present. He used clear lines and rectangular shapes to create a sense of order in rooms with living room furniture.
In a minimalist design, functional design elements need to be considered. For instance, a middle floating wall in a kitchen or bathroom, divides space and acts as a concealed storage piece. When you eliminate clutter and unnecessary items in a room, the focus shifts on the function of the room and the beauty of furnishings.
When great and simple color combinations are chosen, the room will look serene and balanced.
Why empty Spaces?
A minimalist design looks great; you will learn to see it that way with time. When your room is less cluttered with unnecessary items, you feel at peace, and this increases our happiness and health. Think of a situation where you cannot find something in your house; it will dampen your mood.
When you have enough space, you can streamline your designs for one purpose, and this will create a clean relaxing environment. When your furniture is streamlined, even the smallest of rooms will have enough space to spare. Your room will be looking less chaotic and will be easy to maintain. And again, when you have less of everything, you have more money to spare.
Even for a traditional person who loves to have their rooms with all the clutter, it is still easy to have a minimalist design. If you have items in your room that you do not use, consider giving them away. Also, give away old photo frames and other items that only fill up your room and serve no function. You can consolidate your photos into a single modern frame or create a gallery wall somewhere in your room.
Streamline your Living Room Furniture
Sometimes there is lonely furniture sitting in your room for decades, and no one sits on them for ages. Give them away or sell them. If your coffee table is unnecessarily large, consider having a smaller one.
When doing all that, consider the function of a room rather than its beauty. With good color schemes, a room with empty spaces will look great. Once you have removed all the clutter, choose a good color scheme, simple is the best, and arrange your furniture to look balanced. If you want to create an artistic look with a minimalist design, you will only need to add a single piece or two to bring that out.
