Minimalism refers to a clutter-free, no frills, design concept. Minimalist interior design is actually very similar to modern interior design. Making use of the bare essentials to create a simple and uncluttered space is vital in minimalist design styles. Simplicity, clean lines, and a monochromatic palette with colour used as an accent all are aesthetics of minimalist style. This is often particularly appealing for a living room since it's where you spend a lot of time and also tend to have some bulky items such as a couch and an entertainment area. 

4 ideas for minimalist living room with glass

Glass has also become popular along with its minimalistic style. Bringing versatility and a unique look to any space where it's used, it can be a welcome addition to minimalist designs. Below are some ideas for using glass in a minimalist living room. 

  1. Shelving with glass. When you're decluttering and transforming a space to reach the desired minimalist effect, you still want it to be functional. Shelving is a nice addition to any room, but especially a living room where you may want to display a few framed pictures or prized books. Adding a glass shelf or adding glass accents to an existing display shelf can keep it looking sleek and modern without the bulky look of solid wood. 
  2. Entertainment center with glass. Minimalist or not, living rooms are where there's surely going to be some electronics for entertainment. A tv, record player, or any other entertainment items will look more organized and “put-together” if they are in one designated area. You can make that area unique with glass.
  3. Glass (partition) wall. Transforming your interior spaces doesn't have to mean a solid doorway or solid wall. Glass partitions or (glass partition walls) are high-quality, non load-bearing panes of glass that function as room dividers. They allow a room to be divided, without sacrificing floor space and light diffusion. Glass has many uses and installing a glass partition or wall can keep the space open and light while also adding the desired “separation” effect. 
  4. Coffee table or accent table. Even a minimalist living room can benefit from a little table space. A coffee table or accent table with glass is wonderful for adding a little something extra to the space. Glass tables can help keep the minimalist look light and fresh compared to solid wood which can sometimes seem heavy and bulkier. Glass is durable and easy to clean too. 

Whether you're in the process of bringing your minimalist living room to life or you've already done so and are looking to add that little extra something, glass is a wonderful option.
