As I stated earlier, minimalism’s most prominent attributes are geometric shapes, light, natural materials, space. A successful minimalist design is a result of a good balance between these elements, but it comes at a higher cost that you may think.
Minimal is not poor, it is essential.
Essential is the planning in the concept phase, a necessary and expensive step. Because it is about concealing clutter, a minimalist design cannot stand approximation, and every detail must be perfect.
Essential are the few materials used to set the stage in the large surfaces, perfect angles, flat finishes and solid colors that this type of design favors. They all tend to emphasize any defect, be it in a cabinet, a table or a door frame.
The quality of materials and workmanship must be outstanding, which also means expensive.
