Everyone has their own idea of what a minimalist space looks like. Maybe for you it’s a room with monochromatic furnishings, to someone else, it’s a home that has very little furniture. However you want to interpret it, we’re sticking to these design principles when designing a minimalist space.

Strike a balance. A room that is balanced in design means that no particular element is shouting out for attention. Check that your eyes are not darting around to take in all sorta of visual stimulating elements. Have a focal point (could be the sofa, or the dining table), go with a muted colour palette, clean lines, and uncomplicated designs! 

Use light as decor. Maximise natural lighting, and go with day curtains. See how the sofa seem to glow as it basks in the sun, giving this space a soft aesthetic. At night, go with a mix of task and ambient lighting to create a cosy and relaxing feel.

It’s all about the details. Prints, patterns, texture. If you fancy an all-white space, work with texture to create a more unique look. 

Personalise your space. Displaying personal memorabilia is a powerful design tool. These items are significant to you, so they don’t get stale.  

Don’t forget about storage. You quickly lose the minimalist look once you let your home get messy. Try hidden shelving to keep clutter at bay! 


The two large lamps by the bedside make a strong statement without being overbearing.


Clever storage solutions like these make for uncluttered living spaces!


This white wall doesn’t look bland at all thanks to the brick-like patterns! Less is more!
