Minimalism: harmony for your home in a few simple steps
1 Jul 2020
There are more and more followers of this trend that has already become a lifestyle. Minimalism is not an invention of this century, but it has re-emerged with more force than ever in response to excessive consumerism and the problems it causes in the environment.
The minimalist style is characterized by minimizing the elements we surround ourselves with, trying to preserve only what is necessary for us or brings us happiness. Here the well-known rule of "less is more" is applied, which has had great repercussion in some contemporary creative disciplines such as design and photography.
YouTube has received numerous videos from people who have decided to part with everything they did not need during the period of confinement due to covid-19. In many cases, the houses are full of useless objects that are accumulated systematically and make order and harmony in the home difficult.
What is the formula to bring minimalism to our homes? A good start is to reduce our decoration to the essentials. It is also important to find the functionality of each space and recognize which objects are used on a daily basis and therefore must be easily accessible.
Minimalism at home is an ally of an open concept space design, where it is intended to eliminate unnecessary walls to favor the spaciousness and communication of all the rooms in the house. In addition, minimalism is a trend very compatible with the Mediterranean style that we were already talking about in this post. The open spaces favor the necessary air currents in the hot summer months near the sea.
