There are few nicer feelings than an organized and refreshed home. When we buy our first home, many of us have a clear vision of the design we want. Often, that involves a minimalistic and organized space.
Over time, however, that minimalism can easily take a back seat especially when clutter takes over. That’s why it’s a good idea to regularly have home clear outs to get rid of any junk. But if that isn’t making a difference, it may be time to invest in some small renovations to make your home more minimalistic.
There are plenty of easy ways you can make the most of your space, create more space with clever solutions, and generally reduce clutter to make your home feel roomier. Here are a few simple tips to make your home more minimalistic to give you some ideas.
If you want to make your home more minimalistic, think about the layout as well as the decor you use. Minimalistic homes are generally open and they allow air to move freely through the space. If you have false walls, you may want to consider opening up your home and creating more of an open plan area to make your space feel larger and brighter. Neutral colours also make your home feel minimalistic, especially colours like white, grey, beige, and calming blues.
One of the easiest ways to make your home more minimalistic is to streamline your furniture and tuck away the things that you can. For example, if you have a huge wardrobe in your bedroom or clothing racks that are making the space look messy, you may want to consider a walk-in closet. You can create a walk-in closet with even the smallest of spaces, and there are many custom solutions so you can make the closet as organized as possible.
Custom kitchen cabinets
Another great custom solution is kitchen cabinets. If your kitchen feels messy with pots and pans and utensils everywhere, it may be time to revamp how you’re using your space. If you’re planning a kitchen renovation, increase the space you have by choosing cabinets that extend to the ceiling so you can add extra shelves. You can also get custom cabinet inserts made so your cabinets are being used as effectively as possible.
Remove unnecessary clutter
We all have unnecessary clutter hanging out in our homes. Perhaps it’s a stack of books on your nightstand that could easily go on a shelf on the wall or in a cabinet. Maybe it’s the laundry basket that’s always overflowing in the hallway that could be tucked into a wardrobe and hidden instead. Take a look at the things that are filling up your home, and ask yourself whether it needs to be on show, and if not, how you can hide and organize it. A clearer, more open space will instantly feel more minimalistic.
