What are the basic elements in Minimalist Design


In minimalist design all elements must combine and form a unity.

Create a clean space for minimalist style

Clutter is one of the greatest sources of stress in a home space. Adopting a minimalist design will not only bring order to your home, it will give it a streamlined and organised appeal. Though you may need to first go through your home to discard items that you don't use or want anymore, the result is a stress-less home environment.

Stick to your minimalist colour story

Lots of colours and designs can appear busy and even give the feel that your walls and furniture are a cacophony rather than comfortable living space. Choose a single colour or colour theme to bring minimalist harmony to your home. If you have a monochromatic space and are using one dominant colour on all key pieces of furniture, it's important to alter textures within the colour for contrast and interest. If you have more than one colour, stick to your colour story and don't vary from it. Repeat it throughout the space to tie everything together for a cohesive, consistent palette.

Balance is key to minimalist design

Balance is very important to pay attention to in minimalist design. Arrange pillows, artwork or lamps in flanking pairs or asymmetrically to one side. This will make a big difference in how you perceive the space if the placement of items builds off each group through balance.

Gain minimalist control with a décor focal point

Always have a focal point, such as a centrally placed piece of furniture, from which every other element radiates out. To follow the minimalist principle, think of your room as a grid and be aware of the vertical and horizontal lines you are introducing within it with furniture, objects, art, colour, etc. The understated control of this element can be very powerful.

Group similar elements for a bold minimalist statement

Instead of having your home décor items scattered across your counters, shelves, and walls, consolidate like objects together in one designated area. For example, group picture frames or a collection of similar objects together in a designated area -- there is strength in numbers, and a series of items that are similar make a very bold, but edited statement.
