Swedes are known to be the pros when it comes to minimalism. They can teach us lessons on how to live with less, but never lack anything. We are always amazed by their ability to create simple, but charming interiors. There are a few secrets behind the perfect, simple and always tidy homes. Read on as we reveal the Swedish home tips that will help you deal with tiny spaces!
The biggest problem with small spaces is storage. The proper storage solutions will help you hide all the things from sight, that would otherwise clutter your home. Since storage is tricky, you have to be creative and think of all the possibilities. How do you do this? You use every inch of your home. Under the bed storage, open shelves and storage boxes that double as ottomans are your best friends.
Organization is the key
Organization is an important thing that will save you time and effort. When everything is neatly organized, you will spend less time searching for the thing that you need. Organizing the Swedish way means that everything in your home must have it’s own place. If things do not have their own spots, it is likely that they will end up cluttering your surfaces.
Rethink your belongings
In the modern times, the life cycle of the objects has shortened. We constantly buy new things, and with that we end up with lots of items. Unfortunately, we won’t even use or need half of them. The solution? Take your time to consider the things that you own. And do this periodically. Once in a month would be a great idea. Go through the things that you own and separate the ones that you don’t use or love. These ones have to go, as you need to make space for the ones that you really use and like. Throw them in the garbage, or donate them to someone who will really need them.
Have few, but favorite pieces
Small spaces don’t give you so much opportunities to experiment with style. That’s why you really need to use the space in a smart way. Do not buy things just because you need to. Only get things that you love. That way, in the limited space you will be only surrounded by things that bring positive emotions to you. Do not purchase the coffee table just because you need to get it. Do buy that large painting from your favorite artist.
