Minimalism vs maximalism

Minimalism in interior design is stripping down space to bare essentials. Minimalist spaces are devoid of anything unnecessary, you have just the items you really use and need. The main idea is that less is more, that way the items you own stand out with their clean lines, neutral colors, and basic textures. On the other hand, maximalism is a complete opposite to minimalism. In maximalism more is more, everything is over the top, textures, colors, shapes, everything goes, every space gets filled, all knickknacks and collections displayed. Although maximalism is something that most people lean toward, minimalism is getting more and more popular as a way of living – getting rid of anything unused or excess. As total opposites, both are hard to maintain and mostly depend on the amount of storage space, so most homes are somewhere in between minimalist and maximalist.
