Many people have certain concerns if a minimalist living room will be comfortable to meet their needs.

The basic techniques of living room decor in minimalist style are aimed at a visual expansion of space, and this is especially important for small rooms.
Minimalist home designs 2015 – open floor plan interiors
Minimalist home designs 2015 feature open floor plan spaces and very often the living room is combined with the kitchen or dining room area which are also designed in the same style. The design is concentrated on plain finishing materials. The flooring is wood, parquet but without fanciful patterns. Concrete floors and high gloss floor tiles are also popular as they comply with the principle of monochrome.
As for the furniture, the rule less the better is in full force. Multi-functional furniture, designed to perform more than one function perfectly helps to save space. Modular cabinets with a number of open shelves, glass or mirrored doors expand the space. Sofas are with geometric shapes, solid and low.
Minimalist home designs 2015 – colors and accents
Minimalist home designs 2015 are based on a limited choice of colors which is typical for the minimalist style. White is the most preferred color, but we see some muted natural shades – ivory, brown, beige, gray, black. As a rule, neutral colors are the base and the interiors feature one or two basic colors, and bright colors are introduced as accents – blue, red, olive, black, yellow and so on. For example, the main bright accent can be a sofa or a coffee table. Modern minimalist house design and architecture do not tolerate pretentious lighting like a central chandelier. The lighting concept features natural light, hidden light sources, floor and table lamps with modern straight lines. Decoration and accessories are not in excess, and their design fits into the environment. Wall decoration, if any, is often limited to a photograph in black and white, placed in a thin wooden frame or is used to add the color accent in the monochrome interior.
