Comfort and modernity are the two terms that characterize a minimalist interior. These come into their own especially in the living room. Simplicity, elegance and reduced design are further characteristic elements of the minimalist living room. Although minimalistly furnished rooms seem somehow empty, it does not mean that one should completely forego a personalized interior design. Quite the opposite: If you want to furnish your living room in a minimalist way, then give the room its own character, which comes out through its elegant simplicity. How exactly? We try to illustrate this for you in the following picture gallery!

What are the basic principles of a minimalist living room decor?
Many free surfaces can be seen in a minimalist living room. The sofa is seen as the centerpiece of the living area and the other large pieces of furniture are also placed in the center of the room. The renouncement of unnecessary objects makes a rich room decoration impossible.
Only a few accessories are specifically set as inconspicuous eye-catchers. There is a lack of beautiful decorative items on chests of drawers and shelves that captivate the eye. Closed cabinet fronts are typical for the minimalist living area, because a tidy look is the goal. The walls are also empty and typically painted in light colors, creating a bright, inviting atmosphere in the room.

How do you give the minimalist living room its own charisma??
But the minimalist living room can also get its own room atmosphere through the clever use of elements with a high visual value. You can add curtains to the entire living room look, but they should be monochrome. If you really want to have a carpet in the room, otherwise the floor will seem too empty, consider one! But choose a carpet in a neutral color such as white or gray. However, the interior design should be dynamic and lively! You could also spice up the monotony with fancy lighting fixtures and plants in large plant containers.
