Minimalist Home Design Ideas for 2018
Leave the clutter behind. This is probably the best mantra you can bring with you in the coming year. We’re pretty sure most of us wants to have that clutter-free life, with no baggage and no non-essentials except those that are necessary to make your life happy.
The challenge really lies not on desiring to live simply, but in choosing which ones to sacrifice, which ones to reject, and which ones to say no to. Some things are meant to be jettisoned if you want a balanced and healthy life.
As they say, “Less is more,” and you can only live life to the fullest if your schedule is not too full, of your activities are not overflowing, and when 24 hours seem to be enough for your daily activities. Otherwise, you’ll have a stressful life, filled with irrelevant things and people that do you more harm than good.
Before we go too far, we’re going to score in on one of the most essential aspects of our lives where everything begins and ends – our homes. Studies have shown that the condition of your house affects your life as a whole, mainly because clutter affects the way you think. Thus, it’s best to have a minimalist and clutter-free home in 2018. Here are the different tips about this kind of house.
Remove the clutter
Let this sink in. Do yourself a favor and don’t be overly sentimental with stuff. Clear your head and think carefully about which items, pieces of furniture, clothes, and home fabrics are of use to you regularly. Those that you have not used for years should definitely go out of the house and into your donation box.
Don’t go for loud colors
Going minimalist means letting go of your funky self or at least not bringing it to your home interior. If you’re telling yourself you want a minimalist and elegant home interior this 2018, for a change, then stop picking the brightest and loudest colors of tiles, sofa, or carpet.
Go for black, white, beige, muted, or pastel tone. Make the colors in your home uniform or at least complementary. For a more minimalist appeal, reduce your home interior design into only two color motifs.
Promote a multi-texture home
Since we’re suggesting a two-toned or bi-color home interior, we’re going to tell you a secret to creating a diverse and lively look for your interiors even when there are only two colors therein.
How? Create multiple textures by putting in thick carpets, smooth satin curtains, cotton sheets, and velvet sofa, among others so you can be sure that your house does not look bland even with only a few dominating it. You can also add some smart home appliances and gadgets that will even raise your property a notch higher even when its design is minimalist.
Have a few expensive
Spend a little too much on quality items as long as you only have a few of them. One set of furniture in the living room is enough, so choose a durable one. You can even install water features and other luxurious home fixtures as long as there are only a handful of them. We’re not asking you to choose these things for the sake of looking rich, but because quality comes with a price. The most durable and reliable come with a price tag.
