You might have heard about a minimalistic lifestyle where someone lives with a minimum number of items such as furniture, toiletries, clothes and even choice of food. Sounds boring? You might think that way. But when it comes to the minimalist living room, it’s all about an organized, clean, clutter-free, calming, refreshing and spacious room that is perfect for socializing, dozing or relaxing. Here are some tips for setting up a clutter-free living room for you.

Less is more

The concept “less is more” must be visible in your so-called minimalist living room. Spare plenty of space by having less and small-sized furniture to get the most out of every inch. You can also choose multifunctional furniture, so that you don’t have to buy more than one furniture for multiple necessities. Keep your decor simple and pare down nonessential items.

Indoor greenery

Popping color doesn’t always come from furniture, but it can come from greenery. Not only beautiful, but indoor greenery is also beneficial for both your physical and mental health. It eliminates harmful toxins, improves your concentration, reduces stress levels, and livens up the mood. It is best to put it beside the window to produce more oxygen from the maximum exposure from the sun.

One popping color

Although the minimalist room is usually associated with white color, it doesn’t mean that everything in the room must be in white. You can choose one particular item to stand out by choosing the bright colored ones. For example, a striking brown sofa surrounded by all-white walls. When people walk into your living room, their eyes will immediately be fixed on the couch as the main star.

Highlight high-quality artworks

Expensive and high-quality painting or photograph hung on the neutral or muted color wall allows itself to stand out.
