Minimalist Home Decor – How To Revamp By Minimizing

Now that you know what are the characteristics of using minimalist interior design, it is time to give your own home the uplifting you think it needs. Here’s how you can get started with revamping your adobe to shine in all its minimalist glory. So let us get started on your very own home makeover.


Minimalist style is represented through clean, modern lines, sharply contrasting colors within a concise palette, silhouettes that fit snugly into the ambiance of the place and yet, make the place feel like a warm and welcoming gallery that you would feel at home in.

Going for this style does not mean that you would have to start with a blank canvas with modifying the original architecture of the place. Embracing the skeleton of the space, minimalist design looks to working around the architecture rather than hiding it.

Since simplicity and need of the inhabitants of the space are of main focus, the aesthetics of the design maintains a fair balance between both. Each element of the design is put in its place only after it satisfies the reason for its existence. This method continues even in the future to justify bringing in new items.

While minimalist design doesn’t require you to throw out all your worldly possessions, consider decluttering sensibly. Invest in smart storage solutions with quick cleaning routes for daily maintenance.



Choosing a color palette: Stick to a trio of hues per room that runs smooth room after room in a tight edit. Focusing on the vibe of the room, you can create a stark contrast just by using the basic neutral shades of whites, cream, blacks, and grays. The color palette can depend on the resident of the place but it is advisable to not go for more than three hues of the chosen color palette. 

Opt for smart furniture: A collection of smart and thoughtful furnishing will help in forging a well-balanced space that you will not want to leave. Investment in minimalist home decor that brings out the very best of the place. Go for pieces that stand out on its own without looking out of place due to its inferior construction or low-quality materials. Keep in mind to judge every piece of furniture that you bring into your abode based on its functionality and necessity within your home. 

Know your textiles: While we do not have anything against your favorite pair of sequinned pillow-covers meant for your minimalist sofa, buying textiles for a minimalist house should include an array of tonal textiles that play a subtle role in adding warmth and richness to an otherwise sparsely furnished room. Buying statement textile pieces that are of stark contrast yet, not too blinding to overshadow the style of the room is advisable. Textiles with complementary hues or graphics made out of the concise color scheme of the room are the best choices to start with.

Accessorize your space: From the smallest of potted plants to the biggest superhero poster you own, accessorizing one’s space with personalized items makes it even more livable and unique. Make that empty wall in your living room a personal gallery by putting up images in frames contrasting the wall color. The style of lighting can also accessorize the place to further elevate the mood. With the season, these accessories can be swapped out to avoid the feeling of overcrowding the space.



Living room: Set off the tone of this room with stunning pieces of furniture or with great designs on the wall. Big open windows or a dedicated small veranda make the living room look bigger and more importantly, lounge able. Marking the area with a statement wall or floor makes the space look spectacular. Placement of simplistic furniture makes the space complete in contrast to the bold colors on the wall or the floors. 

Kitchen: The mood maker of the house, the kitchen requires the most attention when designing. The catch of a simplistic kitchen lies in the complexity of its appliances. Once you’ve decided on those cabinets and hardware required for a functional kitchen space, the rest of the room can be made to emphasize the simplicity of the design. Keep the color palette toned down in the monochromatic shades and follow it even when buying utensils. With the smart cabinetry, keeping the kitchen counter clutter-free and organized will be no big deal.

Dining room: The mood of the kitchen can flow into the dining area. If its joined with the kitchen in smaller apartments or has a space of its own in a large house – the dining area’s designing can alleviate the quality of the meal and the atmosphere of large dinners. Kitchen and dining are the two spaces that require the most amount of light to fully open up and give off the aura of laid-back culture that will make it harder for your guests or yourself to find boring.

Bedroom: The only place where your mind will reside most of the time. So why not make this place a beautiful one, with classic pieces of decor and a little bit of personalized touch of nature and modern architecture? Similar to the living room, the bedroom can portray one whole offset wall or flooring that contrasts with the rest of the room. Minimalism can also be included in the bedding of the mattress with clean designs of the duvets with statement pillows arranged to give off that Tumblr vibe. Further personalization of the room can be done using one’s favorite kind of lighting, adding a bookshelf, hanging favorite pieces of art on the walls or by creating a reading corner.

Bathroom: Just like the kitchen the bathroom requires smart storage systems and a clean route of usage. Good lighting in the bathroom is obvious along with good ventilation. Sticking to only three hues in the color palette, the entire bathroom can complement the rest of the space even with its minimal design. The bathroom is one place where minimal functionality and design come together to form the perfect space.

Using the tactic of less is more is the key to getting the minimalist interior design right for your place. Keeping personal items that give the bare spaces warmth and the sense of individuality is what will set your abode apart from other minimalist homes. Choosing quality over quantity is the first step towards building that perfect space for your comfort.
