LESS IS MORE
Real talk, minimalism has been trending for a while now, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Research shows that a clean home can be good for your mental health, and what’s cleaner than a minimalist home? So, if you’re considering it but have no idea just how you can go more minimalist with your renovations – we’ve got some quick, but really helpful tips, starting with colour, obviously:
It’s important to note that minimalism is about a lot more than just clean and simple, it’s also about function and efficiency, two of our favourite things.
White is always a good choice when it comes to minimalist designs. Creams and other natural shades work well too – all these colours allow your home to feel open, inviting and airy.
Get rid of all the stuff you don’t need anymore. How do you know if you don’t need it anymore? Well when’s the last time you actually used it? This includes clothes, paperwork, containers, etc.
Exercise restraint. Pair down on the furniture, the random objects, too many colourful paintings or cushions. Keep it simple. Rather add a plant to corners and spaces that feel a bit too empty after you’ve removed items you no longer need. Greenery is known to bring calm to a room, plus it helps keep the air clear and clean.
Let the natural light pour in. Go with bare windows, blinds or a soft, thin curtain material. It adds a beautiful aesthetic feel to the space, and we all know how calming a space like that can be.
At the end of the day, we all love the idea of coming home to a space that just lets you breathe, relax and unwind. A minimalist home is not only less cluttered, it’s less stressful, it’s more appealing, and it’s way easier to clean. So, if you were thinking of going minimalist with your renovations – it wouldn’t be a bad idea at all.
