Create a Modern Minimalist Home

A modern, minimal home design conveys the message of simplicity. Just imagine beautiful, subtle detailing, slender designs and muted pops of colour.

When it comes to modern, minimalist home finishes and accessories, we love light curtains and blinds, slimline tapware, subtle lighting, light timber flooring and simple tiles.

How to design a modern, minimalist home:

  • Use clean lines and geometric shapes
  • Don’t be afraid to mix and match curves and straight edges
  • Stick to a neutral colour palette – white, grey, silver, black, gold
  • Everything in the room should have a purpose – form follows function
  • Great storage is essential to keep clutter out of sight - bathroom storage cabinets that match your vanity are perfect!
  • Opt for cool, smooth finishes – like white tiles, light timber flooring and sheer curtains

Traps to avoid:

  • Getting too clinical – the style is cool and light, but soften it with gentle lighting and curves
  • Going green – this is one style that doesn’t love nature, so keep the plants out
  • Feature walls – avoid the temptation to tone the starkness down with a brightly coloured feature wall
