Niche Décor Concepts Minimalists Love
Being a minimalist changes your perspective on interior décor. Instead of feeling the pressure to add more all the time, you become comfortable with taking stuff away if it makes you feel good.
However, finding niche minimalist décor concepts can be challenging. Pretty much everyone in the movement opts for white walls with backdrops displaying the odd painting or photo here and there. You don’t see much originality in the space.
Fortunately, this blog is here to help. We explore some niche minimalist design concepts that you can start using right now. You won’t find these anywhere else.
One option is to infuse your interiors with attractive geometric shapes. These can provide some people with a sense of order and avoid making the room look merely contemporary.
Fortunately, there’s no shortage of people creating geometric artwork out there, so you can always find something good. Circles, trapezoids, and rectangles complement most minimalist styles well.
Another option is to add piped furniture fitted with square clamp fittings to your interiors. These give your interiors an industrial or even brutalist feel that you don’t get with plain old vanilla minimalism.
The piping on furniture provides the structure, while reclaimed wood or recycled elements complete pieces. For example, you might have a shelving unit with two pipework supports connected to wooden shelves. Or you could have a pipework table with a wooden top.
Adding piping is unusual but it can make your minimalist interiors more distinct. It’s something that prevents your property from looking just like anyone else’s.
Minimalist interiors can wind up looking clinical and sterile without proper texture layering. Everything winds up looking flat and uninteresting.
Fortunately, you can improve visual interest by adding various blankets, pillows, and throws. These elements combine to give rooms more depth, even if you keep the décor to the bare minimum.
Layering textures is also considerably more straightforward than most other niche improvements you could make to your minimalist interior. All it requires is finding a combination of neutral accessories and adding them to your rooms.
- Bring In Vases And Pottery
Adding vases and pottery to minimalist interiors is another little-known concept that can make them feel less Spartan but just as orderly. However, you need to be careful. Including too many smaller items may create an imbalance that makes the scene look cluttered, which isn’t the look you want.
You might also want to include more natural-looking wood in your minimalist interiors to offset all the white emulsion everywhere. While it is nice to have clean-looking interiors, they can become a little overwhelming if there’s nothing to break them up.
You could add wood elements in the form of a sideboard, coffee table, or countertop. Wood also works as a backsplash material, flooring option, and decorative strips around the home if it has a beautiful grain.
When you add wood, you’ll notice it makes minimalist interiors feel warmer and more inviting. However, it doesn’t change the fundamental aesthetic.
