A minimal look in interior design can feel clinical and have a lack of depth, however, with these tips, you can create an intriguing minimal interior like a pro.
Adding different textures to your minimal interior designs can help to create layers of warmth to a cold, static room. Choosing different fabrics that match the colour pallet of the room or melamine wooden pallets for walls and worktops, which have been designed with a textured design or finish, create clear layers of texture while keeping them free of clutter.
Pull in Depth:
A cornerstone of minimalistic design is sticking to a specific colour pallet and designing with different shades and hues to create depth and contrast. Choosing a particular material to work into the design as a focal point gives you the opportunity to use different colours of that material and create depth. This technique has been used to decorate "The Glass Pavilion" which has been called the most minimal house ever design.

Make use of the architecture at your disposal to create drama with geometric lines and clearly defined angles. Look at the lines created by staircases, fireplaces, walls, flooring, shelving, and windows, then accentuate these to carry the eye around the room. Long hanging pendant light fixtures and low shelving can help to add to the geometry and drama of a room.
Bring in Life:
Add a highly textured and bushy plant to create a contrast in the room‘s minimal design.. Not only will this highlight the room‘s simplicity and functionality, but will also add a variety of health benefits including cleaning the air and brightening the atmosphere.
Adding a large mirror to an open wall instead of an art piece will create the illusion of space and add more depth to the room, while also giving more dimensions to space with its silvery reflective surface. Cutting a mirror into an interesting but simple geometric shape such as a circle, diamond, or oblong rectangle with rounded corners will have a big impact on your room.
Minimalism no longer needs to be solely based on static functionality but can incorporate elements of modern design for a sophisticated and stylish interior.
