Minimalism, the art of having less, is becoming a popular modern trend due to its tidiness and cleanness. While many people think minimalist style is only for perfectionists and super tidy people, the truth is completely different. Having a minimalist home is actually helping lazy people to tidy up their place fast and easily by a systematic method of organising home stuff. By combining this effective way with a clean and simple layout, the design can bring both functional and aesthetic features along with an exceptional comfortability.
To optimize the functionality of this 800 sq. ft apartment, 5DS design team cleverly hides home stuff by adding plenty of “invisible” storages. Beside the dining table is a floor-to-ceiling cupboard with a curved-edge design. Its wooden design perfectly matches the home style and turns into an accent wall to create a focal point in the whole space. Similar tricks are also applied in the corridor and living room. The cupboards are stick to the ceilings and floors with an empty middle space to put some frequent used objects or decors. In the bedroom, the design team also adds an extra level on the floor to create more storages and allow rarely used stuff to hide under the floors.
To keep the whole design simple and further reduce visual clutter, black and white colours are mainly used, and wooden texture is added to create a peaceful feel. The walls are painted in white to make the room looks bright and clean. With a contrast to the black edges of different furniture, the home presents a modern interior by its clean lines. By combining all simple elements together, the concept “less is more” is highlighted in the whole design.
