This was the fundamental premise of minimalism. A slogan shouted ad nauseam by lovers of this decorative trend that is characterized by simplicity in all aspects, for the cleanliness of forms, furniture and environments in which space was left empty before recharged.

As important as the minimalist decoration were the constructive elements and structures, these were used in interior design, giving greater prominence to floor materials, to the finishing of walls and other surfaces. Of course, always with smooth finishes, neutral colors and essential materials. The goal is the constant search for harmony.

Among the elements that define minimalist decoration, in addition to the aforementioned and well-known motto of "less is more", there are other guidelines that you can incorporate into your spaces, such as preeminence of straight lines and the simplicity that dominates everything. Choose very simple and straight furniture, which dispenses almost completely with the ornaments and without any frills.

The minimalist decoration always aims to highlight the beauty of the materials employees, over accessories or accessories that, really, shine by their absence. More than rich furniture or ornamental pieces, you bet on the appearance of a floor or the finish of a wall.

These decorative patterns extend to all rooms of the house. They are not limited to living rooms or kitchens, but also reach the bathroom, where minimalism is really, a growing trend. And it's not strange, since it looks great. Get a sense of order difficult to match (something that is appreciated throughout the house, but especially in the bathroom and kitchen).

How to choose textiles

This is one of the aspects that we must take care of when decorating minimalist environments, because if we decide on prints and colors too intense we will distort the essence of the space.

Opt for smooth and sober colors for textiles, in the same palette of gray, white, raw, black, etc. that you have used for the rest of decorative elements.

One of the resources that are used in the choice of textiles are the geometric designs. This trend is shared by other decorative currents such as the Nordic style, which is so popular now. The key to not overdoing geometry in minimalist environments is in the sobriety of the color palette.

And to bring warmth and that the environments do not go cold and soulless, play with textures to create sensations and transmit comfort and add a carpet that makes the space more cozy.
