Exploring the Power of Interior Design Minimalism

Exploring the Power of Interior Design Minimalism

The idea of minimalism appeals to many home owners. It results in clean, beautifully organised and clutter-free interiors that are just right for the cover of a magazine.

Executing a minimalist transformation, however, isn’t always easy. You need to find the balance between scarce decorations and comfort. For many people who don’t have professional experience in the realm of home interior design, finding such balance can be tricky.

Luckily, various resources can be used to find inspiration and knowledge for the execution of a flawless home transformation. Daniel Titchener’s YouTube channel is such a resource. Entirely focused on minimalism and home organisation, Daniel’s videos provide a ton of useful suggestions and practical applications of the minimalist concept, that even home interior design professionals like us appreciate and refer to.

Finding Enough Storage Space in a Small Space

Applying minimalism to small spaces isn’t always easy-peasy. You need to discover storage space and organisation solutions that will fit within even the tiniest of flats.

Daniel’s channel does a lot of talking about living in a micro apartment and still keeping it tidy.

The good news is that the market is increasingly starting to offer creative storage solutions. These enable the utilisation of spaces that will otherwise be left unused. In addition, many smart storage solutions can be hidden away or they’re a part of a multi-purpose item that replaces a couple of separate furniture pieces.

Smart Solutions to Fit Many Functions in the Same Space

Minimalism is also about coming up with smart solutions that give a single living space multiple purposes.

One of Daniel’s most popular videos focuses on creating a foldable workspace that you can “take out” only when you need to complete a certain professional task.

Foldable furniture is a minimalist’s best friend. While such multi-purpose item can be a bit more expensive or you may have to commission a custom creation, it will pay off in the form of space saving and long-term use.

Minimalist Home and Minimalist Living

The concept of minimalism as it applies to home décor and interior design is just the beginning.

Minimalism can apply to every single aspect of life. It is the philosophy that you should possess fewer, high quality items instead of investing in dozens of knickknacks that you don’t really need.

Extending minimalism to every aspect of life can be difficult at first because we are made believe that we need lots of stuff in order to find happiness. Hence, you’ll need to go on a transformative journey to discover the power of less.

Starting with a minimalist wardrobe is a great idea. Obviously, this is going to be a challenging task, especially if your wardrobe is filled to the brim right now. Sticking to versatile pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down according to the occasion can help you make the wardrobe overhaul happen.

The same applies to the constant need to upgrade products and possess the newest version as soon as it becomes available on the market. Striving for such upgrades, however, can make us quite miserable and Daniel does an excellent job of explaining why in his video on the topic.

If you are curious about the topic of minimalism and you want some guidance to make it happen, please check out Daniel Titchener’s YouTube channel. A registered architect and photographer, Daniel has a really fresh perspective and an approachable style that both make minimalism a lot more friendly and achievable.
