Trying to make life at home more simple and cleaner in Albuquerque? Creating a minimalist home is a great way to achieve this goal. It will simplify your life, but it will also make it easier for you to sell your home if you ever decide to do so.
Here are a few tips to help you create a clutter-free living space for the New Year:
When it comes to controlling clutter, the way you store your possessions can make a big difference.
A simple solution could be to buy and assemble sliding drawers that utilize the wasted space under your bed. Getting new cabinets installed in your kitchen is also an option that you can discuss with a contractor.
Catch-All Shelving for Common Spaces
One of the biggest problems faced by most home owners is a lack of shelf space. Adding catch-all shelves for decorative things, like photos and books, can improve the aesthetics of your living room. Additionally, shelves will keep drawers from getting cluttered. Just make sure your shelves aren’t cluttered in the process.
Remodel the Kitchen with an Island
You will be able to reduce clutter in your home with a kitchen island. Cookware can be stored in a minimalist kitchen island and guests can eat at a central location while food is prepared.
Decorate with White
When it comes to minimalist design, there is nothing like white and neutral colors, which create the illusion of spaciousness. Throw rugs and white sheets will help you achieve this look. The decor of your entire home can also be revamped with a white or neutral flair.
Eliminate the Clutter by Donating
Every year or so you should go through your old clothes and other items you may not be using any more and donate them or sell them online.
Here are a few ways to get started decluttering:
• Hang up clothes in your closet with the hangers facing out. As you go through your wardrobe in the weeks ahead, the items with the hooks still facing outward aren’t getting much love and might be a perfect item for donation.
• Look for multiples of kitchen items. Having more than you use just takes up space. Collect unused or extra kitchen items and donate them to a local charity.
Making your home a minimalist masterpiece may take some time, but it will be worth it in the end. Not only will doing so improve your life now, but help you sell your home when it comes time.
