Minimalism gets a bad rap primarily for one reason, colour. Modern monochromatic colour tones, while beautiful to look at, can make rooms look impersonal and bland. The popularity of black and white colours in recent years in a lot of homes make them feel like me too copycats. This is lists exciting colour pallets that shake things up. Earthy neutral colours are a fantastic alternative to black and white schemes. If, however, you prefer white walls or are living in an apartment then opt for practical furnishings and items in colourful, wild hues. This includes pillows, rugs or placemats, towels and upholstery. You can even buy vintage light stands and vases to add special flavour to white wall rooms.
Think furnishings. What furniture and appliances do you already own? How will various furniture pieces work together and fulfill your intended use of the room? Start with an accurate floor plan and take both measurements and clearance into account.
When you have a tiny space, it is tempting to lean towards buying smaller furniture to conserve space. Do not buy things that are too big for your room, but do not be afraid to buy full sized pieces either. Just because your room is small, does not mean you or your life are. You still need seating that works for the people who will be sitting there. Also, if you ever move to a bigger place, your furniture would not look super tiny in your new pad.
Light is as vital in minimal spaces as larger furniture, least of all for making rooms feel more spacious. Use window treatments to accentuate natural and make your space feel wider. When you are decorating your light fixtures, always go LED. It is been proven that led bulbs are leaps and bounds more efficient than fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. LEDs require less watts, meaning they use less power, saving you money. Have a longer lifetime, some last 40,000 hours. Contain no toxic mercury. Are more durable and less inclined to accidentally break
