Minimalist living is an up and coming trend and it seems like everyone is jumping on it and if you are looking to put your foot in the door then you are at the right place.
Minimalist living is not about what you put in but what you take out from your décor. It’s not as simple as you think. But if it is accomplished in full, it will leave you with a décor that is simple, purposeful and stylish in every right. Here are our tips for achieving the minimalist living décor.
Start by Letting Go
One of the biggest reasons why people struggle with this style change is because they have a hard time letting go of things.
It’s one of Newton laws. The only way to move forward is to let go of what’s bogging you down. Humans get attached to things fairly easily, but there is a difference between getting attached and hoarding. If you do the latter then its time for a change. Once you have prepared yourself to have the minimalist living mindset, you can proceed to the next step.
Getting Essentials Only
Start with just one room and keep the word “White” in your mind.
Sit down in your living room and take a deep assessment. Look around and see what you can remove without missing its existence. Is it the old chair in the corner of the room? Or the old settee that always goes unnoticed and nobody uses? Well, if you room these things and sell them off, you will be on your way to a minimalist living style. Use the money and contribute it towards a whiter and more pristine look in either furniture or wall color.
Arrange and Then Re-arrange
Continuing from above, once you have removed the nonessential items, its time for you to move things around.
See what sits well in what location, take note of everything. If you feel that your old lamp doesn’t fit well with the new change then you have one more thing that you can live without. Some people will just keep things for the sake of keeping them, even when they serve no purpose. Well, minimalist living is about maintaining purpose for everything. Think about it, do you really need that many picture frames? Some might even be broken or empty and may also come in the way of cleaning. Be smart, and start your minimalist living journey today!
