Apartment renovation is quite common today, because for a modern person it is very important to create his/her own cozy "nest". Sometimes there is a desire to free an apartment from all superfluous things and make it as functional and comfortable as possible. Excessive and unnecessary trash, a heap of various things that always gather dust - you can and should even get rid of all this. With these problems, the Japanese traditional style - minimalism - will perfectly help to cope with all these problems.
Similar-style housing design involves a clear delineation of zones in which there are often no partitions and some small details, and the zones themselves smoothly pass one into another. Zoning can be done using translucent sliding partitions, different flooring, or even lighting. In such an apartment, the kitchen is quite possible to connect with the living room, fencing it with a bar counter. The bedroom is separated by a screen.
The decoration of windows plays an important role, as it emits in as much sunlight as possible. In this case, if the location of the apartment allows, you can completely abandon the curtains or use a loose material in pastel colors. The minimum amount of furniture should fulfill the maximum number of functions. So, the bed can be hidden in the chair, and the table can be folded into a closet, for this purpose. Furniture-transformers are available for this purpose.
Interior decoration is most often performed by such rough natural materials as wood, brick, cork, stone, etc. In the decoration of walls, preference is given to relief plasters or wallpapers for painting, which in no way overload the interior, but rather emphasize the competent interaction of zones. The color scheme in minimalism is usually two contrasting colors, which create the necessary harmony.
Also do not forget that cluttering up apartments with small decorative elements can nullify all efforts, because everything is good only in moderation. The rigor of minimalism will allow relaxing and forgetting about pressing problems.
