A minimalist design or style is one intended to be as simple or with as few elements as possible. Minimalism can refer to decorating or other aspects of your lifestyle.
Some people like a minimalist style because it feels less complicated. Fewer items need less care, less storage and take up less space. Others like it for environmental reasons; it uses fewer resources.
