Furnishing Your Home as a Minimalist

Younger generations are increasingly adopting minimalist design elements for their homes and apartments. These themes present a crisp, clean look that is difficult to match. For anybody looking to dip their toe into this style, here are our top tips for furnishing your home as a minimalist.

Creating a Base

The most important thing to remember about the minimalist design philosophy is that it avoids the tumult of color present in many modern themes. When creating a base, try to keep these principles in mind.

Free of Clutter

A minimalist home is free of clutter. There aren’t stacks of bills on the counter or shoes by the door. Everything has a proper storage place to help preserve the room’s clean lines and simple nature.

Neutral Base

Speaking of nature, it’s part of creating a neutral base. Minimalist design philosophy recommends using natural colors with subdued hues.

Furniture Selection

You should also abide by certain rules for furnishing your home as a minimalist. Here is a look at how some of these rules impact furniture selection.

One in, One Out

To keep things from becoming cluttered, you should remove one piece of furniture for each one you add. This rule supports the minimalist philosophy of having just enough for your needs.

Quality Is Essential

Always consider the quality. This piece will be a focus of the room and must stand up to scrutiny. Be selective, and your furniture pieces are likely to provide more value in the long term.


Use different textures with your pieces to create visual distinctions. These deviations help prevent anyone seeing the room from viewing it as dull or unwelcoming. In monochromatic rooms, minor variations in hue also help create separation for our eyes.

Style and Functionality

Furniture with storage is seen as a bonus, especially if it hides items. Prioritize ways to maximize your space, such as choosing the right size sofa and keeping accessories simple. Extras should incorporate natural elements that blend with the room and each piece should serve a purpose.
