Benefits of the minimalist approach

* Collaborative post

When you take a minimalist approach in your home, both in the way you live and the way you style it, you are affording yourself a host of benefits. By de-cluttering your home you can benefit all aspects of your life. By de-cluttering your life you can benefit aspects of your home. Below are a few examples of just how.

First and foremost going for the minimalist approach in your home means hassle free housework. And hassle free housework is an obvious benefit to everyday life, is it not? Who wants to have to be cleaning things up every second of every day, really? By de-cluttering your home and giving it a minimalist makeover you are giving yourself the perfect opportunity to have to tend to little to no house keeping at all.

And where better to start than the living area? This is the room that probably suffers most at the hands of cluttering in a family home, but there are ways to de-clutter it. If yours is inundated with cables and wires sticking out from different electrical contraptions then you can fix this problem easily. You can fix it by attaching a wire basket in an unnoticeable place, like under a desk or under the sofa, and placing all your wires in it. When wires are stood upon it can break them. When your family step on plugs it can hurt their feet. Eradicate these problems by putting then in a safe place where they are out of reach and out of sight.

And not only does the minimalist approach do wonders for your home in a practical sense, it also improves it aesthetically. By de-cluttering your living area, for instance, you are instantly making it look tidier and cleaner. And not only are you making it look tidier and cleaner but you are also making more space for other furnishings. When the surrounding area is as minimalist as can be you have more space for bigger pieces of furniture to act as the focal point of the room. A high back Chesterfield sofa, for example, looks perfect in a room when it is the main attraction of it. This kind of iconic styling stands out even more when it is surrounded by as little as possible. However, that doesn’t mean you should leave the space completely void save this focal point. You should dress the room in other, smaller decorations in order to accentuate it. Pieces of wall decor that compliment the style and colour of the main attraction of the room is a good place to start.


There are many benefits to giving your home a minimalist makeover. There are benefits for both you and your home. So the next time you’re stuck for ideas on how best to style your home then think no further than just de-cluttering it. In doing so you can provide your home with a level of serenity that is just not achievable when it is packed full. As well as this you can create a style within it that will be the envy of all your neighbours.
