5 Things Minimalist Apartments Make Room For

Going minimalist means doing away with anything unnecessary in your apartment – but it’s up to you to decide what counts as essential.  If you ask us (and thousands of pins on Pinterest), these are the 5 things minimalists apartments will always make room for, even though they may be seen as more of a luxury than a necessity.

Throw Blankets

You can only go so clean and minimalist without feeling a little sterile and cold.  Keep clutter to a minimum but leave room for added interest in the form of a richly textured throw.  Not only is this a great way to add some depth, it can make a space feel truly inviting – who doesn’t want to curl up under a blanket?

Something Living

Nothing breathes life into a space quite like living plants.  These breathing, growing elements add a layer of freshness and a pop of color to otherwise (often) monochrome or muted color schemes.

Coffee Table Books

Coffee table books add an interactive element to a space and, once again, creates an inviting environment.  Keep clutter to a minimum by investing in just one or two statement pieces that are beautiful to look at both sitting on your coffee table and while flipping through the pages.

A Candle Or Two

Create some ambiance and a warm, soft glow with a special candle or two.  One major benefit of going minimalist is learning to favor quality over quantity.  Whether it’s an irresistible scent or a unique candle holder, go ahead and treat yourself to something special that you’ll appreciate each time you light.

Statement Seating

Having additional seating available for guests is always a good idea.  Pick just one or two pieces that are both functional and beautiful and make them a mainstay in your living space.  These days, we’re loving everything from an oversized pouf to a statement chair.
