I grew up in a single-parent household with three other siblings, and for at least ten years of my life, we were moving to a different house. At times we could stay a little longer, but there were also times when we would only be there for a couple of months before we would eventually move again. I remember how draining it was for me to be moving constantly, and having to readjust to the neighborhood again, getting to know other people, making new friends. It was a difficult time in my life with all the change that was going on.
The 2019 Real Estate Conference discussed the latest trends in real estate today. One of the topics which stood out was how minimalist movement is taking over the world of design. According to experts, aside from the freshness, it provides our homes, it also offers a cleansing to the soul. The reason behind this is that it promotes a stress-free life if applied.
With these in mind, here are some minimalist designs that you can adapt to your home.
The best way to start with transforming your house into a minimalist zone is to declutter. Set aside a day or two for this. Everything that you know is not essential to your everyday living must be stored in your basement. Then, you should adequately arrange the things that leave in your space.
Make sure to do this at least once a month or whenever you feel the reemergence of clutter. Having a clean space will make you feel relaxed as compared to a messy one.
Buy Space Enhancing Furniture
If you’re just two people at home, do you need a dining table for eight guests? Do you also need a three-piece suite for this? The answer is no. These things will only take up unnecessary space and will make your room smaller.
So, how do you do this? You may purchase dual furniture. For instance, a table that you use for your work can also be attached to the wall when you’re not using it. Managing your space will lower your stress since you don’t have to worry about regularly rearranging to make way for other furniture.
Simplify Color Schemes
Believe it or not, color schemes are essential when creating the best look for your interior. Putting too many contrasting and bright colors will only transform the space into a cluttered and inhibited one. The best way to go about this is to apply two to three colors at most. This technique will ensure that the room will create a vibe of focus and relaxation.
A minimalist mindset is difficult to achieve at first. You might be too hesitant to let go of some things that contain some of your memories. However, science proved that minimalism has the power to reduce the anxiety and stress you feel. Try it out before stress takes hold of you.
