Minimalism As A Design Concept

Minimalism is a style or technique characterised by simplicity, the idea that “Small is beautiful”. The idea occurs most often in art, music, literature, and design, and often involves balancing functionality (use) with aesthetics (beauty).

Singapore, with its space constraints, is the perfect place to practise minimalism when it come to the interior design of your home or office. This can be done through the use of colours and textures, having in-built cabinets, using dual-purpose or space-saving furniture, going for the uncluttered look, etc.

The use of colour is a great way to illustrate the technique of minimalism. Using colours consistently, whether within a room or within the entire home, and perhaps broken by textures, provides a pleasing continuity to a room, area, or home. You also want to match the colours used for walls, floors, and cabinets. Textures provide a way of distinguishing spaces using similar colours. The use of hues (primary colours), tints (hues with white added), or shades (hues with black added) can be a complicated subject, so these will be covered in a separate article dedicated to colour.

Sometimes, every square foot of space counts. When space is a premium, going for in-built cabinets or using dual-purpose furniture helps you both use your space more efficiently and achieve that uncluttered look. There has been an explosion of ideas here (for instance, dual-purpose furniture that completely avoids using any floor space); again, we cover some of the more interesting ideas and possibilities in separate articles.

It’s important to note that being minimalistic does not mean being plain, boring, or restricted to just a few ideas. As the projects and designs on VEHS show, the sky is the limit. You are often bound only by your own imagination. If you’re not sure where to start, begin with the projects highlighted on our Website. We are confident the interesting designs that other interior designers or owners have come up with will spur your own creative juices.

Minimalism is the new trend, and for good reason. Singaporeans are always trying to do more with less; environmental consciousness, especially conserving resources, is growing; and there is always the question of cost. Going for the minimalist look is the time-tested answer to being both trendy and thrifty.
