A minimalist space does not need to feel cold and sparse...using texture and natural materials can give a minimalist room a cosy comfort.
Benefits of Minimalist Decorating:
CALMING, LESS STRESSFUL
Leaving empty spaces on the walls, in the corners of the room and on surfaces around your home naturally brings a sense of calm. Visual clutter is stressful to the mind and soul.
EASIER TO CLEAN
Choosing to decorate with fewer furniture pieces and accessories covering every space in the house, makes it so much easier to keep a clean home. Knick knacks and extra furniture pieces collect dust, which affects our health....and lets be honest, the thought of dusting and vacuuming around a room full of stuff can be overwhelming.
Minimalist spaces often feel larger and more open because the focus is on the important design aspects of the room rather than overwhelming with clutter. A simple artistic vase on a coffee table vs stacks of books, magazines and trinkets speaks to the design of the overall space. Less stuff makes a space more inviting.
