If you are under the impression that minimalism means a dull space and a total lack of elegance or style, then get ready to eat those words – we are about to teach you a few fabulous lessons about this fantastic trend.

The minimalist style focuses on empty space instead of busy elements, opting for clean and simple lines and tones to enhance a room’s potential. No wonder so many interior designers worldwide opt for this style time after time. 

Still not convinced? Then allow us to prove it to you with these 36 amazingly designed spaces—from kitchens to living rooms and from bathrooms to bedrooms – which will most definitely inspire a love (perhaps even an obsession) for minimalism.

1. Clean, open, and very functional. Could this be the perfect kitchen?

6. Slim lines and soft colours are ideal for minimalist homes.

7. Integrated spaces are achieved much easier with minimalism.

8. See how strong and striking lines and angles become when paired with a clean background.

9. Whites and woods? So ideal for a warm minimalist space.

10. A polished concrete surface adds such terrific pattern and texture into an otherwise quiet space.

11. Muted tones help achieve a visually spacious look.

12. Too many off-white tones in one room? There’s no such thing!

13. Symmetrical elements make the most of your space without cluttering it.

14. Don’t underestimate a strong dose of texture, such as a feature wall.

15. Opt for sleek and clean storage cabinetry in your minimalist kitchen.

16. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean you can’t splash about a colour or two.

17. Notice how powerful sleek and slim additions become when the design scheme is clean, like these wall mirrors.

18. Low-level furniture is vital for minimalism…

19. … and so are glass surfaces!

20. We also recommend modular furniture to really enhance that clean and quiet style.

21. Be creative with shapes in a minimalist room – just like colour, they attract attention.

22. Doesn’t this living room just ooze tranquillity?

23. Feel free to add geometric patterns to minimalist rooms for a touch of detail.

24. Thanks to the clean colours and quiet design, this kitchen looks like it’s permanently perfect.

25. Faced with a tight or unusually shaped space? Minimalism is your answer.

26. By all means, add open shelves to a minimalist space – just remember breathing room and a clean layout.

27. Monochrome styling in a minimalist room? Now you’re talking!

28. Both slate and concrete have the perfect texture and pattern (and colour) for minimalism.

29. Don’t be shy to add glossy surfaces to a pared-back space, as long as you don’t overdo it.

30. This clean-styled en-suite has us applauding!

31. Minimalism and natural lighting go hand in hand, so no need to resort to heavy window treatment.

32. And don’t go overboard with artificial lighting either – keep it clean and simple.

33. We love these sleek and calm cupboards – who would have guessed they hide an entire world of storage compartments?

34. Storage equals an uncluttered look, which is vital if you want a successfully designed minimalist room.

35. Of course you may take that minimalist style outside!

36. A terrace looks much more spacious when treated to a clean and open design.

On the other hand, there is so much more we can achieve with a terrace; see these: 10 terrace ideas you'll love!
