6 Ways to Achieve Great Minimalist Interior Design (Part II)
Yesterday, we waded into the topic of minimalist interior design with a brief overview and our <a title="6 Ways to Achieve Great Minimalist Interior Design (Part I)" href="https://www.atgstores.com/ourblog/6-ways-to-achieve-great-minimalist-interior-design-part-i" target="_blank">first three ideas about how you can approach the concept</a> – how understanding what it is can help you get to where you want to go.</br></br>Today, we’re going to look at three more practical steps you can take that will give your space a minimalist look that still feels filling.</br></br><strong>4. Think about white or light-toned walls.</strong></br></br>Color distracts the eye and makes us feel emotions, however subtle – two things we want to approach intentionally when we’re thinking about minimalist interior design. This isn’t a bad thing; it’s just something that needs to be considered.</br></br>Starting with a blank canvas makes it easier to steer your way toward the minimalist look; it’s a foundation that doesn’t need any throttling to get back to zero.</br></br><strong>5. ‘Minimalist’ often suggests modern furniture, but …</strong></br></br>Don’t be fooled. You can get a minimalist feel without dropping wads of dough on fancy modern furniture.</br></br>The key when it comes to furniture is sparseness, slimness and spacing. A puffy <a title="Sofas" href="https://www.atgstores.com/furniture/living-room-furniture/sofas/" target="_blank">couch</a> is a hard sell, admittedly, but if it’s paired with slim seating and well-considered accents you can still pull it off. Done right, you'll find you don't have to sacrifice comfort for style, which should always be the goal.</br></br><strong>6. Focus on open spaces and accents with solid pops of color.</strong></br></br>Minimalist interior design is frequently anchored by airy, open spaces, and that space is filled with fewer things when they stand out from the background.</br></br>Get more out of less by choosing art, décor and furniture that is eye-catching without being garish. This can be done eclectically, monochromatically or somewhere in between, so long as your focus is intentional.</br></br>Use these tips well, and you can achieve great minimalist interior design without a huge investment or deviation from a more traditional style.
