While minimalism might sound easy, it might be one of the hardest interior looks to pull of. Yes, you have fewer things to find or placement, but because of that you must make the most of what you have.
Symmetry can add a lot to a minimalist space, but it is by no means necessary.
Lighting will be especially important in a space that lacks a lot of stuff. Use light to accentuate the furniture, and take advantage of the open space.
You’ll notice, in most minimalist spaces, that neutral tones lay heavily on the color palette. Wish splashes of color and strategically-placed plant life, you will have a nice, clean and relaxing space.
