6 Tips For Embracing Minimalism At Home

minimal home decor

Most of us are love our homes. They are our little kingdoms; the place where we feel safest. Yet, even the cosiest house can come with a lot of subconscious strain and baggage. It is why, for many years, psychologists and behavioural experts have been espousing the benefits of a minimalistic life.

They say that the less clutter your house contains, the happier you will be.

We tend not to realise how easily the brain becomes a map of its surroundings. And, if your surroundings are untidy, your thoughts will also be disorganised. So, decluttering and decorating from a ‘less is more’ perspective is an excellent way to banish stress.

You will be amazed at how much difference a few small changes to your home can bring. You should remember that it is okay to make this transition slowly. After all, not everybody can wake up in the morning and Marie Kondo their possessions right back to basics!

For some, the journey towards a more minimalistic existence is gradual, and according to PlumbWorld even the bathroom can’t escape a minimalist approach.

Click through for 6 tips to start making minimalism your antidote to a stressful life.

1. Find the Light

Homeowners often forget that the best decorating tool of all is free. It doesn’t matter whether you are trying to create a Japanese themed dining room or a rustic, country boudoir, natural light is your secret weapon. The best kitchens always make room for sunlight, because it uplifts and enhances without taking up any space whatsoever.

    Great tips! When I moved to my own house, that’s when I realised the importance of minimalism if you want to have a clutter-free home. I quite agree on #4. We usually tend to buy things without thinking thoroughly if we really need them at home or if they would just add to the clutter. We sometimes buy stuff just because we like them. To practice minimalism, what I usually put in mind is that “I have no space for that thing in my house”.
