Trendy Minimal Approach to Interior Design

Interior Design In Today”s Generation
Contributor: James Marie Kyle O. Colina

Interior design comes in a variety of formats and formulas, some completely unique and others with only minor variations.

Nonetheless, each has its own flavor, finish, and experience, allowing it to stand out in different chapters of inspiration, history, and creative endeavor. Knowing what distinguishes different interior design styles may be more useful than you think, ensuring you select the best style for your space and goals, and allowing you to attain visual perfection with less effort.

People are now invested in creating their spaces to have a more productive atmosphere and cozy at the same time. This has been a trend ever since the pandemic started. In lieu of this, people’s taste is now based on the social media platform called Pinterest. They rely on and follow these designs depending on their taste. Interior designers’ questions those approach because the designs are just based on aesthetics but lack functionality and purpose.

As an interior design student, we individually have our opinions and takes on a trendy design that only follows for aesthetic purposes. We take spaces as our canvas filled with elements that are followed by both science and design.

Minimal approaches in interior design do not only mean putting minimal features or furniture pieces in space but also reflect on the forms and shapes that are applied for all elements to go into place. Such elements are clean lines, reductive, uncluttered, monochromatic, and simplicity which also goes with “less is more”. A minimally designed space incorporates features that have an open floor plan enough for people and furniture to go through. With minimal furniture, lights are recommended to create sophistication and serenity in the space. Lastly is to pick the right furniture pieces that are well-built and comfortable.

Here are some keys that are to be considered in creating a minimal space:

Form, Focus & Functionality

For a place to operate, all of the elements in it must be present, but in
minimalist decor, ‘shape’ is paramount. A table and chairs, for
example, are required in a dining room. These parts must communicate with one another and relate to one another in terms of line, color, mass, and so on. In their basic shape, they must work well together.”

Light, Form, and Materials: Impeccable Construction Craft

“Minimalism is an approach to design where the elements of the structure are simplified to their essential components. Nothing is added for effect. The design thrives on the beauty of the forms and the materials used to create the forms,” Jennifer Tulley of Jennifer Tulley Architects explains. “The design must be straightforward and basic, but not dull; this is where the use of light, form and beautiful materials is so crucial; the craftsmanship of the building is incredibly important because misalignments cannot be covered with trim.”

“Minimalism for me is about keeping a space simple, uncluttered, and accentuating the attractive architectural features of a space. The palette is mostly monochromatic and the color is used as an accent,” Sharon Blaustein
