House Tour: Get some tips on creating minimalist spaces from this 5-room HDB
Going minimalist with your home décor doesn’t mean having to compromise on the practicality in the design. A well-designed minimalist home can be just as functional as it is easy on the eye. Here are some great tips on how to achieve the Minimalist look from this 5-room home project by The Minimalist Society.
Have a floating console
Instead of the chunky television consoles, opt for a customised one embedded on to the wall. This immediately makes the living room space feel bigger.
Create plenty of counter space in the kitchen
Long counters help to elongate the look of the kitchen, so invest in good quality countertop surfaces to give your cooking area a prominent feature.
Use mirrors for visual effect
Mirrors along a wall can create the impression of a larger space. It also helps to reflect light around the room, making the space feel brighter and airier.
Cabinetry should extend to the ceiling
Create extra storage spaces above your head by designing your cabinetry to extend all the way to the top. This draws the eye upwards, making a narrow space look larger.
Keep it white
Instead of cabinets with wood textures, go for laminates in solid colours. This helps to make the minimalist look feel modern and elegant.
Pair it with grey
The white and grey combi is a timeless look and will never go out of style. Best of all, it’s so easy to keep to the theme because the palette allows for various shades of gray to be used. This means you won’t have a hard time finding the right furniture in the right colour.
Glass doors and walls
If you want to convert a room into a study area, why not replace the walls with glass and match it with a glass door too. This is a functional solution to creating separate spaces that are visually linked together.
