Say 'Goodbye' to Clutter

People tend to accumulate all kinds of clutter in their houses throughout the years. As you can probably guess, this is never what you want if you're trying to achieve a minimalist aesthetic. That's why, the first step in this tutorial, is to get rid of your clutter. One option you have is to keep all of your belongings hidden away and out of sight. However, the better idea is to declutter your home. Go through everything you own, and give away, sell, or throw out anything that you no longer have a use or for.

Always Go for Functionality

While in another type of aesthetic, you would have a bunch of different items for decor, storage, and a slew of other purposes, when you're going for minimalism, you first need to think about functionality. If possible, get items that would fit the best of both worlds: something that adds style and value to your home, while it also has some practical use in your space. This way, you can reduce the amount of stuff you have on display significantly.

Decorate in Neutral Colors

If loud, bright, fun colors are what you go for, then minimalism may not be the style for you. This is because, once again, you want to keep things to a minimal, which means, to achieve a truly minimalist look and feel, you need to decorate in neutral colors. To that end, go for black, white, brown, gray, and similar tones in that same color family. This will also have the added bonus that everything in your home will go together because neutrals always match.

Keep Everything Flawless

Once again, since you will have fewer items on display in your home, you need to make sure that those which are, are completely flawless. This is because, a speck of dust, a stain spot, or other sign of wear, tear, and dirtiness, can actually make your whole place seem cluttered and disheveled. For that reason, it is imperative that you take proper care of your items and that you clean your house thoroughly with regularity. This will ensure your place will look immaculate.

Opt for Quality

And since you should be focusing on having spotless items that have a real purpose, it's also essential that you opt for quality objects. This is because, having a dented, loose carpet, a burnt lamp, or a frayed curtain will make your place seem dirty and not well kept up, which, as already stated, is quite the opposite of the image you're trying to portray when you have a minimalist aesthetic. So, to sum up, invest in high-quality items that will look great and that will remain in top shape for years to come.

Make Use of Texture

Cleanliness, a monochromatic palette, and a reduced number of objects on display can make your place look a bit boring if you're not careful. However, what you can do to add a bit of interest, is to make use of different textures in the items you keep around your home. For example, if you'll have pillows on your couch, you can opt for something sequined to make it more stylish. Or, if you'll have a rug over the carpet, you can choose one that's shaggy to make your whole place more eye-catching.

Less is More

Last but not least, it's important to drive home the minimalist concept that 'less is more.' This is because, if you want to truly commit to this aesthetic, you need to be very choosy about what you have in your place. One way to go about it is to take a look at everything you want to place in your home, and put half of the things away (or more). This will help you have a cleaner or a lot more put together look and feel to your home.
