How to Create a Minimalistic and Tidy Home!

Minimalism is a lifestyle choice that emphasizes simplicity and often includes decluttering, organization and efficiency. Minimalism is about taking away anything that gets in the way of what you want to do, so you can focus on the things that matter most. It’s not just a “clean your house” type of thing; it's more like streamlining your life so you have more time for what matters most to you.

A minimalist home leads to the benefits of being happy, healthy, productive and focused.

Minimalism is the art of living with less. It's about clearing out the clutter and focusing on what's important.

Minimalism helps you to be more productive, focused and happy. A minimalist home leads to these benefits:

  • You can find things quickly when they're needed, which means no wasted time looking for lost items or searching through piles of stuff that doesn't belong there in the first place!

  • You save money by buying fewer things (and therefore not needing as much storage space).

  • You don't waste energy cleaning up after yourself because you've got less mess lying around everywhere!

Rethink your space.

The first thing you need to do is define the problem. Are your rooms cluttered, or do they just feel like they are? Are your closets overflowing with clothing that's never worn and no longer fits? Do you have too many books or magazines lying around the house? If this sounds like something that could be bothering you, there's a good chance that minimalism might be right for you.

Before diving into an overhaul of any room in your home, take some time to set goals for yourself--and set them high enough so they're challenging but not impossible (or at least not impossible yet). For example: "I want my bedroom floor clear by noon tomorrow" or "this month I'm going to donate two bags full of clothes that don't fit me anymore." Having specific goals will help keep things focused on what matters most instead of getting sidetracked by smaller details like whether or not there should be posters on one wall instead another one; if all goes well then next year those posters could end up being donated anyway!


Decluttering is an essential part of creating a minimalist and tidy home. You need to declutter regularly, so that your house doesn't get overrun with stuff. When you do this, you'll find that it's much easier to clean up afterwards!

There are many ways to declutter--you could donate items or sell them on Craigslist, for example--but the most important thing is not being afraid of getting rid of things you don't need anymore. It might seem scary at first, but trust us: once you do it enough times, it will become easier and more natural for you! You can also ask for help from friends/family members if necessary; sometimes we all need someone else's perspective when deciding whether or not something has value in our lives (or homes).

Designate a place for everything and arrange them accordingly.

In order to create a minimalist and tidy home, you need to have a place for everything. The process of finding a spot for your items is called "organizing" and can be done in several ways:

  • Keep like items together. If you have multiple pieces of clothing that are similar in style or color, keep them together so they're easy to find when you're looking for something specific.

  • Use containers or organizers as much as possible so that things aren't just thrown into drawers or cupboards haphazardly. You may even want one container specifically designated for each member of your family so everyone knows where their stuff should go when they clean up after themselves!

  • Put things at eye level whenever possible--this encourages people who use those items frequently without making it hard on those who don't use them as often by forcing them down into lower shelves or cabinets where they might not see them right away anyway." 

Keep it simple!

Most importantly, keep it simple! Make your goals simple to achieve. Focusing on small, manageable tasks keeps you from getting overwhelmed and helps you accomplish more.
