Creating A Small Minimalist Living Room
A minimalist living room has an overall look that’s understated, serene and free of clutter. If you have a small living room, you still can create a minimalist living room. Here are several ways that you can do. In a small living room, space is always an issue. For a minimalist feel, you’ve got to get rid of any pieces of furniture that aren’t crucial. No half-empty bookcases or unused seating areas. Keep accessories, if any, to a minimum for a true minimalist feel. Any piece that hangs on the wall or sits on a table should be a simple statement piece that speaks for itself. Don’t build yourself into elaborate style motifs that will clutter your smaller room and make it feel even smaller. Minimalism is all about simplicity, not complications. Properly storing items you might not use every day is important; you’ve got to keep them out of sight to maintain your minimalist look. Move things you don’t use often to the attic or off-site storage to keep your room as empty as possible.
Any items that you feel you must have should be cleverly concealed under other furniture or in hidden storage spaces. Add ambient lighting from recessed fixtures such as cans, and indirect lighting in your minimalist living room. You won’t see ornate chandeliers and fussy shades over faux-candle lights in minimalism.
