Living room is the most important area in a house since it is always in view and it is where we used to host guests, thus it has to be comfy and elegant. In case you are a fan of clean lines and chic shapes, a living room in a minimalist style is a way to go.
How to Design Living Room in Minimalist Style
In fact, we used to associate a minimalist style with classy shades like black, white and grey, however, it is not necessarily sticking to these subdued shades – nowadays it is acceptable introducing splashes of bold hues like orange, red and green. Diluting living room in classy white with pale grey allows brining depth.
As for furniture, it is preferable to use furniture with geometric shapes and clean silhouettes to keep up with the overall style. For instance, team a round coffee table with a rectangular game of sofa and square-shaped floor lamp. Consider materials like natural wood, acrylic, leather and metal.
For a storage space, think of using cabinets with hidden doors in order not to disturb an interior with extra details.
When it comes to the color palette, the best choice are neutral whites, browns, blacks and greys with hints of bold greens, reds and blues. These splashes of color can appear in decorative elements such as art pieces, vases, lamps, rugs, window treatments, plants, etc. Besides you can opt for furniture in bold hues. Splashes of bright color will help visually reduce a large living room. Try to use maximum 3 different colors in an interior design of your living room. Also keep in mind that a minimalist style excludes prints and patterns.
Proper lighting is an essential element of a living room in minimalist style. Bay windows will provide a lot of light, what will make your living room appear bigger.
In case there is no a lot of natural light in your living room, think of plain table lamps with minimalist design.
Paint the floor in white with a glossy effect for a modern and stylish look. Cushions with various textures like velvet, silk and plush in pale beige, grey and cream will bring a glam feel, without breaking an overall effect.
