Although many think a minimalist look is not practical for daily life, this is not true! Having a modern and minimalist living room can really instill an atmosphere of calm and tranquillity into your home. A minimalist home design looks simple and easy, but when it’s not done right, it may turn out boring or uninviting. There are ways and tips to achieve that minimalist look without it looking dull. Here are ideas on how to attain the essence of minimalism combined with stylish day-to-day practicality.
How to Get Started
It is time to Marie Kondo your living room! Start by getting rid of all the unnecessary things that are taking up space in the living room. The goal here is to declutter your living room, as well as your life, because a minimalist lifestyle leads to a more minimal living space. Once you’ve decluttered your living room, you’re ready to move on to achieve the functional yet modern and minimalist living room look.
1. Go for a Neutral Shade
While white is the most used colour to achieve a clean and minimal look, there are other ways to keep your living room walls clean and clear. Explore other neutral shades like soft peach, muted blues such as light blue or try the modern yet sophisticated light grey for the perfect fresh canvas.
