Unconscious consumption in the world is increasing day by day and people find themselves buying products they don’t need. In this world, the minimalist lifestyle (can be defined as valuing yourself rather than materials) is a rising trend for every part of life, which involves less consumption and fewer products. This new idea is applied in decoration as well. In this sense, many people trying to decorate their homes, gardens, and balconies in accordance with minimalism. So, today, I want to mention how this new lifestyle trend appears in the balconies.
Firstly, it will be better to clarify the minimalist balcony in a general sense. That is to say, you should decorate your balcony in terms of your need only (not means buying cheap products). In addition, all the accessories you use in your balcony should have equal importance and roles.
Minimalist Principles for Balcony Decoration
- The first principle is focusing on the functions of the decors, which means every material should have a function (do not use unnecessary accessories).
- The second principle is about coloring. In this regard, it is recommended to use unpretentious colors such as white, grey, beige.
- The third principle is about flooring. (It could be concrete or wooden runnen deck)
- Shapes or forms: vertical, horizontal and curved designs are most preferred.
