Minimalist vs Scandinavian – What`s the difference between Scandinavian & Minimalist design?
Navigating through the design terminology is not easy at all. But to plan an interior that fits your specific, original tastes and home, you need a language to talk about the nuances of some styles.
If all you know about minimalist and Scandinavian design is that IKEA sells a lot, that’s not enough. Let us give you our knowledge of these two aesthetic aspects.
Minimalist style interior design
“Minimalist design” refers to the use of industrial materials and geometric forms in a fluid, open conceptual space that favours white and black colour schemes. It emphasizes the simplicity and functionality of furniture, but contemporary minimalism has become lighter and less rigorous over time, with a wider range of textures and other cozy aspects.
Scandinavian interior design
The “Scandinavian design” refers to the use of natural materials, bright colours and minimalist shapes in open spaces that use the sunlight that the winter region actually receives.
Modern Scandinavian & Minimalist interior design
The modern style was created in the Nordic region – Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Norway – in the 1950s. Think of white wooden houses with monochromatic colours and works of art, and you will have a pretty good picture of this kind of project.
Minimalist vs Scandinavian – the essential difference
Something may be both Minimalistic and Scandinavian, but the main differences between them are the materials used. Minimalist design often includes stainless steel, chrome and lacquered plastics, while Scandinavian design focuses on organic materials – i.e. hemp rugs, curved wooden chairs and woven baskets.
