Multi-functional concept will usually accompany the realization of the concept of a minimalist home. By applying an open plan interior you can integrate three functions simultaneously in one room, namely living room / family room, dining room, and kitchen. Room dividing walls are not needed so as to reduce expenses. Maximizing the function of each element can also be done. For example by functioning the wall as a shelf or kitchen cabinet as an example. More benefits can be felt especially if your home land is limited.
