The New Minimalist Home Trend

If you have bought or sold a home in the past five years, then the odds are you have heard of the minimalist trend. Minimalist homes are on the rise, and that trend shows no sign of stopping, thanks to millennials. While previous generations placed a premium on their properties having a cozy, warm, feeling, newer generations are attracted to open air designs that lack clutter. Let’s talk a little bit more about what the minimalist trend is and how you can use it to maximize your property’s value. 

What Is A Minimalist Home?

A minimalist home is one that doesn’t have any clutter. The designs are nearly all open, with a bevy of available space. The rooms in the home aren’t excessively furnished. Instead, the interior design prioritizes function and airiness. The minimalist look is sometimes called “sleek” or “modern.” It is sometimes characterized as “futuristic” as well. These homes get rid of all of the unnecessary furniture and clutter to focus on what is most important. Not all properties are minimalist, of course. These types of homes are most likely to be found in and around major metro areas. That’s where millennials tend to cluster, and those are the demographics buying these homes and driving these trends.

Minimalist Homes Are A Favorite Of Millennials

Millennials are entering the home buying market in huge numbers, so the trends that they prioritize are important. If you are selling your property, you need to be aware of what millennials like. Millennials are more likely to be purchasing homes in major cities and the extended suburbs. Cities like Washington, DC, San Francisco, and New York City are all millennial hot spots. If your property is in any of those metro areas, then you may need to start considering how you can apply the minimalist look to your home. 

How To Give Your Property The Minimalist Look Before Putting It On The Market

The first step to giving your property a minimalist makeover is to declutter all of your spaces. Get rid of unnecessary furniture and even limit the artwork on display. Minimalist homes often use neutral colorways, such as grey, white, and beige. Make sure that the furniture fits with the shape of each room.
