Are you feeling overwhelmed with physical and mental clutter? Simplifying your living space is a great way to start streamlining your life and reducing stress. Today we’re sharing our top three ideas for simplifying your home in hopes that they help you kick-start the decluttering process:
Set up your space according to how you actually use it
Let’s start with the entryway of your home. Do you use it to store daily essentials? If so, create a system of storage for easy in and out items like keys, bags, coats + jackets, and shoes). In your dining room, choose pieces that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional. This will help you keep the space dedicated to actual dining, instead of becoming a place that collects stacks of unopened mail!
Invest in quality, not quantity
When you take the time to source thoughtful furniture and attractive storage pieces, you’re more likely to respect and take care of them, keeping order within your home and maintaining organization.
One in, one out.
Prior to purchasing a new item, think about where it will live, and what it’s replacing within your existing space. It's simple math: adding and never subtracting leads to an inevitable surplus and mess. Pause before you buy something and think about how a purchase fits into your overall home layout, how it affects your overall design, and what its function will be.
