With so much time being spent in the home, it can be difficult to maintain an orderly environment. Here are some tips on avoiding clutter in your home.







If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that less may be more. If you want to clear your home of clutter, a minimalist design can be the way to go.

“Minimalism for me is about keeping a space simple, uncluttered and accentuating the attractive architectural features of a space. The palette is mostly monochromatic, and color is used as an accent,” Sharon Blaustein, founder and principal designer of B Interior, told Elle Decor.

Since decluttering is the way to go, Livspace says you’ll need to stick to keeping essentials on kitchen counters. Everything else should be stored in cabinets. White cabinets with a pop of color, such as a wine-red appliance, gives the illusion of more space.

For furniture, opt for statement pieces that can stand alone. HouseBeautiful suggests a clean-lined sofa for a loft living room. It also says to keep your layout timeless, with seating surrounding a coffee table.

“Skip trendy pieces that you’ll easily tire of and go for classics and future-heirlooms that will stand the test of time as the challenge with minimalist room decor is how little you have to work with, making each essential piece you do bring in all the more judged,” according to DecorAid.
