No one can point out where exactly the minimalist design idea originated, but most people speculate that it started in Japan. A huge chunk of Japanese millennials are known for having a simple set up in their houses, and this simplistic manner of living is now known as minimalism. It is believed that this manner of living promotes us to be happy with the simpler things in life, and allows us to move away from materialism, and live without excessive clutter.
The minimalist trend has now spread throughout the world, and people are now beginning to adopt it in multiple areas of their life, and this includes how they choose to design their house as well. The idea of having just the bare essentials, and to still pull it off elegantly is considered to be a tricky balance to acquire. This is why there are very few designers that are able to pull it off. So, if you happen to be interested, you can check out Marshall Erb Design and go through their portfolio and see if it suits your style.
Minimalist interior designs are also in because it allows people to open their living space as well. When you only have a few important pieces in your living space and are not cramping it, you end up making space appear even bigger than it actually is. Plus, there is not a lot of cluttering, and that means you do not end up constricting your living space, and another plus is that you do not have to clean as much either. Lastly, it is also not as expensive when you are opting for a minimalist look for your house or apartment’s interior. So, you should probably start looking through a few portfolios now and see if you have found anyone you want to work with.
