Focus on furniture items that are low-slung — the closer to the floor that the seats, tables or fireplaces are sat, the more appropriate they are for a minimalist room. White is the most common colour for walls in minimalist design. This colour gives any room the appearance of being larger and enhances the effects of other design elements in the room. Neutral colours and natural stone colours are also appropriate. It is not advisable to use a varied colour scheme for a room as this can shrink the space and make a room feel more cluttered. Walls are often replaced with sliding or removable screens.
Uplighter’s are appropriate for rooms with a minimalist feel.
