How to Decorate a Minimalist Living Room

July 30, 2021

When it comes to learning how to decorate a minimalist living room, the phrase “less is more” is key. In this article, we’re going to walk you through the process of decorating your new minimalist living space. 

It can be overwhelming to know where to begin with minimalist decor ideas, but start by picking a few favorite furniture pieces and work from there. A foundational step for how to decorate minimalist spaces is to first cut down on the clutter– sometimes this means a deep clean where you actually get rid of things, but it could also mean taking advantage of the pieces in your living room that also work as storage (an ottoman, bookcases, stylish baskets) to keep your things well organized and give that minimalist feel. 

Once you’ve got your furniture staples in place and the clutter taken care of, it’s time to tackle the part of the room where your creativity really gets to shine: minimalist wall decor. With any modern minimalist decor design, the thing you’ll often lean on to fill any empty spaces and tie the room together is artwork. Luckily, TrueUp is here to help with that.

You can find a plethora of minimalist wall decor ideas on the internet, specifically websites like Pinterest, but ultimately your style is up to you. Pick a few of your favorite art pieces and let TrueUp make the hanging process simple, mess-free and quick. Careful curation is key to making your space look clean yet intentional, so choosing art pieces that fall in line with the same color scheme and overall aesthetic of the room will be the icing on your minimalist decor cake.

Some other minimalist wall decor ideas play on the use of greenery to liven up a space– try draping some over a mirror or even framing a few pieces with it. Speaking of frames! Another way to bring a pop of sophistication to your minimalist living room is by changing out your photo frames. You have a wide variety of options here, but a few of our favorites are transparent floating frames, the ever-popular modern metal frame and some wooden gallery frames.

One final thing we’d suggest adding to your living room is a minimalist picture wall. In addition to your favorite art pieces, of course you want to display those meaningful family photos. Again, experimenting with different frame choices can be the key to making those heart-warming photos fit the vibe of your new space, but you can also play around with small cluster galleries on the wall. Choose a few of your favorite snapshots, possibly printed in a variety of sizes and texture finishes, and arrange them in a collage to create a stunning focal point that brings what matters most to the forefront of your home.

When it comes to finding the minimalist look that’s right for your space, feel free to try out different styles and find what you like best! With TrueUp’s damage free picture hanging, adding and removing wall art is a breeze.
