How to Create a Minimalist Home

October 4th, 2021 | Renovation | Suitable Floor Finishes

The trend towards minimalist design with clean, clutter-free style and open plan living areas has long been featured across interior design magazines, blogs, Instagram accounts and Pinterest boards. If you’re thinking about introducing a more minimalist style in your home, here’s a look at some of the key elements that will help create modern look 

Smart storage 

Creating a clean look with a “less is more” approach is easy. Minimalist design is all about being organised, so you’ll need good storage to be able to declutter and only have a minimal number of objects visible in a room.  

 Pale walls 

White matt emulsion paint will make the walls blend in seamlessly to any minimalist look. Colour is not something to be avoided, but it’s usually best to stick to white on the walls as it gives a clean look. Be mindful with artwork and go for statement pieces as opposed to lots of separate works to make a strong impact in one or two specific areas of the home.  

Good lighting 

When thinking about lighting solutions, impactful and modern floor lamps, statement lighting with architectural touches and dramatic lamp shades work well in spacious, airy rooms.  

Clean floors  

Choose hard floor finishes such as engineered timber; any width floor-boards will look good so choose a width that pleases you. Pale carpeting or bright white or grey ceramic tiles also look fantastic in modern, minimalist homes. Needless to say, you should keep the floors clutter-free so any radiators or other visual obstructions should be removed. 

Underfloor heating 

Underfloor heating is an “invisible” heating system and is perfect for enhancing a minimalist style in your home. Many of Warmup’s floor heaters are perfect for installation as part of a renovation project with little-to-no impact on the existing floor heights. Underfloor heating is easy to install and will give you complete design freedom when creating your new minimalist look. Get a quick online quote today to find out how much an underfloor heating system will cost for your home.
