The Rise of Minimalist Design
Minimalism is a trend that continues to gain momentum. Why? Our homes are the place we should feel most free and at ease. Minimalism is a tool that can help us find that freedom, especially during this time.
Our homes have become a mixed-use space. We now work, educate, exercise, rest, and do so much more at home. Suddenly, the need for a more simplistic space has increased. Beyond the need to de-clutter is the visual appeal that comes with a more simplistic space. A simplified space has a positive effect on our moods and allows better opportunity for creativity.
So, how do we achieve this? Keep it uncomplicated.
Minimalism is versatile and depends entirely on what you are looking to achieve, you’ve just got to know what to focus on – be it a subtle monochromatic style or chic luxurious minimalism featuring statement pieces, the opportunities are endless.
Yes, there are obvious places to start, such as incorporating functional furniture, a refined material palette, neutral wall and décor tones, symmetrical lines and patterns that unify rather than clash – equally as important to achieving a minimalist home is selection flooring materials that help you accomplish a more streamlined and refined look and feel.
With that being said, we have listed a few of our favourite Creative Stone products that will set you on the right track to creating a simplified, yet equally impactful space.
Flamed Granite Flagstone
This contemporary flooring range features a flamed surface texture and sharply finished edges. Available in a variety of subtle earthy tones making it the ideal choice for those looking to adopt a more natural look while complementing a wide variety of décor and furniture. Perfect for patios, stairs, and alongside swimming pools, there’s no denying the beauty and elegance of these pavers.
Cotswold Flagstone Range
Minimalist designs often make use of different textures and patterns, and our Cotswold pavers with their riven surface texture, straight edges and natural sandstone look, are an amazing choice for both the interior and exterior of your home.
Chateaux Flagstone Range
Available in eight different size pavers that elegantly replicate old world flooring, our Chateaux Flagstone Range allows you to get creative with their layout depending on what you’re looking to achieve. Characterized by clean lines, subtle surface indentations, and a natural colour scheme – they are perfectly suited for French Provencal and farm style homes.
Classic Flagstone Range
Ideal for rustic courtyards, walkways and steppingstones– this charming range adds softness and character with their pronounced riven textured surface and gentle scalloped edges. Many homeowners turn to them to get that rustic, country style in its simplest form.
Manor Flagstone Range
Authentic old-style flooring is a popular choice for those looking to embrace rustic minimalist style. It invites designers to blend the old with the new for a truly unique look that does away with clutter and instead introduces interesting focal points. These flagstones are perfect for rustic patios, charming courtyards and landscaping applications as they highlight a property’s features in the most unassuming way.
Woodwave Flagstone Range
Many minimalist homes include the use of wood in their design mostly because of its natural earthy look and feel. This flagstone range, however, incorporates the grain of hand-crafted wood into the pavers for a timber floor look, but without the maintenance. The result? A simple sleek and chic flooring option that’s as conservative as it is impactful.
There is no denying the benefits that come with a minimalist home. Deciding on the best flooring option to suit your home isn’t something you need to do alone.
