Minimalism is characterized by:
- Simplicity & clean lines
- “Less is more”
- Clutter-free, yet functional workspaces
WHY YOU SHOULD GO FOR IT: Minimalist office design can create a clean, organized, and professional look. Promoting a clutter-free environment can help employees stay more focused and organized. Industries where a formal appearance is important lean towards minimalism because of the sophisticated vibe that goes along with it.
A WORD OF CAUTION: Some believe that minimalism can be bland or lack personality. Also, limiting visual clutter can be restrictive for employees who need to utilize equipment, supplies, and other materials regularly.
THE FURNITURE TAKE: Minimalist furniture can be versatile and adapted into various office layouts and sizes. The minimalist aesthetic can work with a limited color pallet when fewer finish options are available. Add plenty of storage to reduce visual clutter yet remain functional. You can create visual interest with pops of color or texture.
