What Houzz contributors are saying:
Con: Need to let goIn order to achieve a minimalist style, the homeowners have to master the art of letting go and only keep furniture which is necessary and select a few items which spark an element of joy.Verdict:Minimalism is a great style but it might not be practical for homeowners who find it challenging to get rid of possessions which have been collected over a period of time. Also, it is not suitable for homeowners who like to collect and display souvenirs from their travels or like to periodically add new items to the decor of their home.Read more:10 Interior Design Styles Explained9 Ways to Make Minimalism Work in Indian HomesTell us:Do you like the minimalist style and would you like to use it for your home?

7. Take it down a notch Want a seamless and open bathroom without barriers of glass or stone? Then a low-level shower space can be the solution. Dipen Gada and Associates does away with doors, completely integrating the shower area into the bathroom. Playing with gravity, the lower level of the shower stall prevents water from flowing into the rest of the bathroom floor. The skylight over the shower area adds to the feeling of openness.

4. Simplify Indian-style interiors are usually complex, with a variety of colours and finishes. For a more minimalist approach, pick one or two low-key colours for your walls, floor and ceiling like it has been done here by Dipen Gada & Associates. You can then accessorise with a careful selection of one or two decor elements like mirrors, paintings, wall hangings, decals, rugs, and so on.
8. Minimalist bathroomBy working with specialised labour from Auroville, Dipen Gada revived a dying practice by completely cladding this minimalist bathroom in IPS (Indian pattern stone). With the use of a skylight and a strategically placed picture window overlooking the outdoors, showering in this bathroom lets you feel like you’re out in the open. But it also gives you the privacy you need to take care of business. Committing to the outdoor theme, Gada brings in fluttering butterflies on one of the walls.See more of this holiday home
