Less stuffs, simple furniture with few decorative elements does not make cleaning easy but also change your life. More thing in your house, more complicated your life. Our physical possession including your high maintenance expensive furniture simply add clutter in your mind too. You need to spend money, time and energy for that simple item.
If you do not have time, then you have to hire someone to do it for you. It’s might cause you stress if kids ruined it intentionally too. Do you? If it’s not, then I give you 10 stars because you are really very patient parents.
Simple and stress free life with more time to give to your family and friends, how that sound? Freedom to spend your life for an important thing in your life rather than worrying about unnecessary things. Then, I believe the idea of modern minimalist home is quite interesting and rewarding when you get a lot.
4. Inspire a Sense of Calm
Imagine yourself sitting in a room. The lighting from outside made the room bright. White and neutral color room with simple furniture make your mind clear from any thought. You just want to relax, deep in reading while listen to good music. How that’s sound?
Is that what most of the people looking in life?
Neutral or opting for an all-white interior is the basic concept of minimalist decor which make your mind clear. The color it’s translate to cleanliness, give more spacious feeling. Subconsciously it’s create happy mood and lead to happy mind.
Minimalist home removes multiple items that use for the same function to create more space. This space creates room within a feeling of calm and empty your mind from unnecessary thought. In contrast, things and clutter can leave a negative effect to your mood and make you anxious and depressed.
5. Save Money, Time and Energy
Our first action to makeover our house to minimalist home is to list down all the furniture that we already have. We redesign our house layout and plan properly where to place the furniture. The rest of the furniture either sold, donated or just go to trash. The money we got used to bought multi functional furniture. Now we have less furniture compare to before, but more space for everything we want to keep.
Now with more space, we have less time to clean, maintain and worry about. It’s all require money, time and energy. Instead of wasting money, time and energy on the extra thing in your house, you can spend those to achieve your goal.
Want to save more money when you are addicted to decoration? My suggestion is when you are really felt like buying new furniture or accessories for your house, keep that money into your saving envelope instead. Few years later, you might surprise to see how much you have saved. This is true especially to house decorator mania like me who wants to change the house looks in every few months.
Welcome Good Things In Life
Now that you know, there are many good reasons behind your choice of choosing modern minimalist homes. Then you can decide why it’s really for you. Now, set it as your new goal and go forward for it.

My mission just to remove extra thing in my home and start apply the minimalist home concept gradually. It’s just uncomfortable, but when you have clear with your goal and decision, nothing can stop you.
