Sometimes, living in a home with minimal belongings is beneficial. You can focus on spending time with your family instead of wondering where you’re going to walk in your home or how you’re going to keep everything maintained and in its place. If you want to master a minimalist home, there are a few tips that you can keep in mind so that you still feel like you’re living in comfortable surroundings.
Room By Room
Start by clearing out one room at a time. As you gather items that you no longer need or you don’t want, put them in a Self Storage Kenmore unit until you know what you want to do with them. Your belongings will be secure in a storage unit, and you can take them out at any time you want. When you’re removing the clutter from each room, try to make piles for the things that you know should go in the trash and things that you don’t want to save and that can be donated to someone else. An out-box is an option to consider if you’re not sure of what you want to keep and what you want to put in storage. If you don’t touch something that’s in the box for about two weeks, then it can be removed from your home.
Everything Has A Place
One of the things to keep in mind when you’re creating a minimalist home is that everything should have its own space and should serve a function. If there is something in your home that doesn’t have a purpose, then it can be removed and taken to your Self Storage Kenmore unit until it’s needed. Items that aren’t being used but that do serve a function at some point can be kept hidden away. However, if there’s no place to comfortably keep these items in your home, then you should evaluate your organisation and what you use each day in your home.

When family members enter the home, they need to have an area near the entry door where they can drop everything from their book-bags to their shoes. A pegboard on the wall beside the entry door is an option. You can position hooks along different rows of the board for items that hang. Another option would be to install shelves on the wall for items like shoes or bags that won’t easily hang on the wall.
Your closets are areas of your home where you can remove more clutter than you think. Sort through the clothes that you can no longer wear. If they can be donated, then put them in a pile to remove from the home. However, clothes that you think that you might be able to wear again can be put in a Self Storage Kenmore unit. If you have shoes and accessories that you no longer wear that are taking up space in your closet, then take these to storage or donate them as well. Other items that you might keep in your closet that you can get rid of include decorations for your house, old purses and bags, or even board games that are in your child’s closet. Hang an organiser in your closet to sort smaller items and shoes that won’t fit on hangers.

New Post: The Problem With Storage. Michael shares his thoughts on how quickly we can forget about pairing down when we have storage and how many of us see that as a beneficial asset to a property. He also shares the trap that we fell into in our previous home that we only realised as we were leaving. You can find the link to this post in the bio profile.
Don’t forget to go through your bathroom to remove items that have expired or empty bottles that have been pushed to the wayside. Hair products, such as a curling iron or straightener, can be donated to someone in need if you no longer use them. Throw away any medications that have expired as well as make-up and cleaners.
