Designing A Minimalist Living Room
Living rooms are spaces that should feel most comfortable in the house, coming second to your bedroom. These spaces ideally dictate the kind of air and vibe your house brings, not only to you but to any guest who may come around at any time. It is important to have this room looking as lively as possible, even from the name living room, it should be the place where people rest and feel full of life. After a long day hustling out in the real world, this place should be good enough to make you feel relaxed just by entering it. The room should be equated to a kingdom, where everything around is in good condition, fit for a king or queen.
People are different, carrying different personalities. This creates a broad range of ideas when suggesting how someone could do their living room since at the end of the day it depends on what that customer wants and what fits her liking. Decoration of interior housing is mainly left to be done by the females unless a man lives alone, or he prefers to do them.
One of the simplest changes you can make is to start by moving your couch further back, probably backing them up against the walls. They shouldn’t touch the walls but should be close enough to a wall. This gives you enough space to work around in the middle, making it look spacier, allowing for more breathing space. Natural light reflects on more surfaces making this room look bigger than it was.
Put away any objects in the living room that serve no purpose there. Some of these things fill up our spaces for no reason, making them look tight and small, doing away with them will make a huge difference even on how fresh the room will feel. If you cannot get rid of them, it is recommended that you paint those that can be painted to a neutral color. Those which cannot be painted, you can have them in little storages or boxes, so that it keeps the room neat, and where you can access them only when it’s really necessary.
Keep the colors in the room neutral and try to have everything match. From the couch to the walls, the floor, and the decoration around all the walls. If they aren’t of the same color, then going for color choices that blend would be the best option. In the room, you could add plants which often bring a certain breath of good vibes and relaxation into the room. If you are working with a small room, small hanging plants would be ideal, but if working with a fairly large area, big plants that can fit are highly recommended. Ensure that the pot is painted to match the color system in the room.
The basic concept of designing a minimalist room is not being afraid of the emptiness it seems to come with. This space it gives will have you feeling at peace, more relaxed, where you won’t have to be stressed thinking of decluttering a certain section or looking at it and your mind can’t easily fathom what is going on in that section. Ideas to achieve this look can be found on Pinterest, where you’ll browse through a variety and pick what works best for you.
