Let’s talk size of home and what we put into it! You don’t have to live in a Tiny House to be a Minimalist but you should consider the needs and design of space in which you live. Minimalism is about being practical and efficient; being simple and definitely living within your means.
Decorating a home for a Minimalist usually means focusing on a palette of limited colors and/or patterns. Decluttering your home is the first step. I like to think of it as subtracting before adding. You really need to take away ‘stuff’ so that you can have more empty space. Donating, selling or repurposing duplicate or excessive items will help free up space. It can be a hard process for those who like to hang on to things, but do we really need a dozen winter coats or four measuring cups or three sets of dishes for company that never visits?
Making a Healthy Home starts with removing chaos so spend time in each room looking around and remove items that are too busy or unnecessary. You may decide that a Minimalist lifestyle isn’t for you but you may find joy in reducing the clutter.
