Live Large with Less

A new year means new beginnings; and that goes for your home too! Introducing some minimalism into your life is a realistic and healthy goal for both you and your home. Domestic minimalism means de-cluttering your material possessions and creating systems to manage them moving forward. Less clutter in a home will increase the visual value, and relieve the stress of excess. With a few organizational adjustments and perception shifts, you’ll be well on your way to living a cleaner, happier life!

Minimal Home Tips from Nonn's

Start Smart

The first step in achieving a more minimalistic home is getting smart with storage. Having a surplus of stuff lying around only adds stress, and can make even the biggest space seem small. To manage your mess, start by adding some functional furniture. Closed-off cabinets, lift-top coffee tables and ottomans are all excellent at keeping your counters and floors clear and clutter-free. Finding clever ways to tuck away your trinkets feels great, and makes it possible to kick back (literally) on some smart storage.

Sneaky Clean

To continue cutting down on that clutter, move your efforts into the kitchen. With cupboards and counters full of cups, bowls, spoons, and countless other cooking companions, it’s no surprise that the kitchen is a clutter hot-spot. Start by clearing your counters completely, and organizing your items in three separate piles: keep, store and donate. Whatever items wind up in the ‘keep’ pile, put them in a drawer or cupboard. What you can’t hide inside, clump together; get a small square box or vase to keep those necessary items organized and mobile.

Pro Tip: Minimize your mess by maximizing your sink! Too often a sink will fill up (and overflow) with dirty dishes because of its small size. Even if you have a big dishwasher, the sink is typically the first place people put their plates when they’re done eating. Adding a large farmhouse sink will give you the space you need to get some serious cleaning done and reduce the visual clutter.

Minimal Home Tips from Nonn's

Tone It Down

Minimalism means making life simpler; removing stress and replacing it with calm. To further facilitate an environment with less stress try painting your walls with some calm colors. Soft whites and tans are as minimal as it gets. If you want a little more pop from your paint, pick whatever color you like best, just make sure to keep the shade soft. When the paint dries and you’re ready to hang artwork, try keeping it to a minimum; two pieces per wall (max) will add some style without adding stress.

Kick Out Clutter

If you’re looking for a place to start simplifying, look no further than the foyer; it’s the first thing someone sees when they walk inside and it’s the last thing they see before they leave. If you don’t already have adequate shelving in your entryway, you might want to add some. Not only will it help organize your essentials like shoes and keys, but giving your guests a place to hang their hat will leave them feeling warm and welcome.

Pro Tip: Kick clutter out the door by adding a storage bench or coat cubby in the entryway! With all the hats, gloves, scarves and other outerwear accessories, a central place to keep these things organized is essential for minimalism mastery.
