Minimalism in interior design: maximum of comfort with minimum of things

Styles of interior which came to our house from time immemorial or “lived” with us side by side for at least 100 years are very individual and easily recognizable. But the style of modern design of the space is not always recognizable. Very often, hi-tech, minimalism and modern are confused. Furniture, decor and accessories from different directions are placed in the same room, so that style gets lost and, as a result, the room becomes impersonal and tasteless. Yes, modern design is quite complex, but there is nothing impossible. For example, even a layman can easily arrange a room in the spirit of “minimalism”, following a few basic rules.

All the surfaces of the room in minimalistic style are simple and concise, without any decor, decorations and finishes. For the decoration of premises are used both natural and industrial materials, but without creating additional volume. Clean lines and simple colors dominate in minimalism.


Distinctive features of this style are:

  • minimum number of pieces of furniture in the room,
  • multi-level room lighting,
  • bright color palette, “diluted” with contrasting lines only where necessary for room zoning,
  • natural colors are used as the color supplements – living tree, clean metal or glass, brick without painting,
  • absence of decor on the ceiling, walls and windows,
  • textiles is hardly ever used,
  • clear geometry of the lines – rectangle, circle, with no spirals or blurry outlines,
  • lots of sunlight, windows without drapes or with curtains, forming only straight lines.

Very often, minimalist in interior design is confused with asceticism. People get rid of the things that emphasize and form style. Minimalism differs from asceticism due to the comfort, beauty and a unique, subtle coziness.
