Are you a fan of minimalist houses? Minimalism is the ultimate in simplicity, living with less, and making time and space to discover what’s really important. Having a minimalist house design allows you to live with less while still living a happy and healthy lifestyle.
One of the main ideas of a minimalist house is to live practical and structured. Having a minimalist house gives you a healthy lifestyle as you won’t have as many things to worry about. Your house needs to be cleaned, but if it’s big you might feel too lazy to clean it. Clutter is also a form of visual distraction and everything in our vision pulls at our attention at least a little bit.
How to Get a Minimalist House
To start first, you need to get rid of everything that’s essentially useless as well as the things that you don’t really need anymore. You can also exchange some items with one other item if it functions as those multiple items simultaneously. Think of which furniture can be eliminated without sacrificing comfort and livability.
Store your belongings like keys, books, magazines, etc. out of sight. You can keep some stuff like one or two pieces of art on your table or wall. Remember, quality over quantity. For example a living room can have a couch and one or two chairs, a coffee table, and a minimalist entertainment TV console. You should avoid having other things like big bookshelves, a cabinet full of items, or too many wall decorations.
For the floor and the walls, try to pick a plain color and pattern that is monochromatic. Match this with your curtain colors as well.
For your kitchen and dining room make sure that there are only few essentials items, like a dining table, chairs, a toaster, microwave, and a coffee maker. Put your kitchen and dining utensils in your cabinets and always try to keep your trash bin as empty as possible to avoid any unwelcome smells.
