Living Room with Minimalist Design DetailsWe often hear that Millennials are shifting a lot of traditional practices including our shopping habits, our eating habits, our working habits, and everything in between. It’s safe to say that we’re already seeing those changes affect entire industries — and interior design is no different.

There are major interior design trends associated with millennials some of which might just surprise you.

Going Small

While the Baby Boomer generation could be characterized as “thinking big,” the Millennials are the complete opposite — they’re a downsizing generation, particularly because homeownership is less popular amongst young adults. Millennials are working to utilize every inch of a smaller space. That can be done through a variety of ways: cabinets, bistro tables, and other furniture that fits just right or serves a dual purpose.

Incorporate Technology

Now that working remotely has become the norm for many Millennials, having a home office — or even just a place to get work done — is becoming a necessity of any living space. Even in a one-bedroom apartment, millennials are searching for a corner to incorporate a working space into. We’d suggest looking for small desks and office storage to use the space the best you can.

Minimal is Now

For millennials, minimalism is in. Millennials are not only thinking small but also thinking less. That design style should speak through every room, from the kitchen to the bedroom. Less is more in all aspects. Millennials are shopping only for furniture and décor that is necessary, purposeful, and practical.
