Most modern homes have a minimalist design for a sleek and sophisticated look. For this trend, remodelers, follow the K.I.S.S. rule, which stands for “keep it simple and sustainable” in designing the floor plan.
In this post, your local custom home builders, Artistic Design Build Inc. share factors you should consider in working with a minimalist floor plan.
Minimalist homes are more in touch with nature. They break away from traditional closed-off walls and dark exterior. It’s all about open spaces and letting natural light in. Instead of walls, glass panels are used. This look fares best on private properties where privacy can still be maintained by installing bamboo screens.
Minimalist floor plans for rooms are also open and airy. There is a sense of unity within the spaces. They can still have walls that may be cut off for light to enter. You may also consider skylights to enjoy a view of the night sky or to let in natural light. Built-in shelving or functional push-to-open cabinets can contribute to the home’s cohesive look.
Neutral colors are used for flooring, furnishings, lighting and textiles. Your interior colors don’t have to be boring. You can get creative and use patterns and textures. Bare floors like hardwood, ceramic and porcelain tiles are a must for a modern and crisp look.
Decorations for minimalist modern homes are relatively eccentric, with striking colors and geometric designs. Energy-efficient and sustainable materials are preferred like bamboo or glass used in vintage furniture. Furniture in rooms except in the kitchen don’t have to match but they have to be cohesive. At Artistic Design Build Inc, we specialize in custom kitchen remodel projects and we can help you achieve a uniform look in your space.
Utilize natural elements in outdoor areas like wood, slate and rock. The exterior shouldn’t have heavy ornamentation and materials should blend in with the nature around the property. You may consider having tropical plants or shrubs with geometric cuts for the garden.
