MINIMALISM – A NEW WAY TO DECLUTTER | MINIMALIST ART | JD INSTITUTEThere’s nothing quite like the feeling of an organized space. Each one of us agrees with that. But we can barely gather the motivation to do so for spaces that we live in. In our busy modern day lives, keeping our nests clean needs daily diligence. This is where minimalist interiors gather attention.
The concept of a minimalist design is from “less is more”. It is all about creating a simple, beautiful, calming space. The focus of this concept is towards shape, colour and texture.
The basic principles include:
- Reducing the number of objects in a room to the bare essentials.
- Eliminating clutter indefinitely – Covering up with crafty storage solutions.
- Simple color schemes – Using muted tones as the dominant colors.
- Clear floors – Simple flooring patterns without any complex shapes shouting for attention.
The benefits of a minimalist design:
Spacious and InvitingMinimalism will free up space in your home, making it appear larger and more inviting. You’ll love walking into your living room and taking a panoramic view across the wide-open space.’
Clutter-freeMore the clutter more the efforts needed to keep a space clean. Minimalism is quality over quantity. It will naturally be clutter-free, hidden by chunky cabinets and concealed closets.
Calming to our brainsThe space around us and the elements positioned across it immensely influence on our mood, behaviour and physical activity. When the principles of this style, if followed correctly, one can achieve a calm and peaceful ambience improving the emotional quality of life.
Finally, minimalism isn’t about getting rid of all your possessions for design. It has more to do with choosing order, clarity, calmness, and intention. By focusing on a handful of elements we are not living with less, but rather drawing attention to the colour, shape, and texture of the spaces, the things we inhabit.
