A minimalist lifestyle is about removing clutter from your life and owning only what adds value and meaning. When done right, it results in a clean, calm, and more efficient way of living. But just because you want to own less doesn’t mean you don’t need storage space. After all, where do you store the meaningful items?
If you want to lead a more minimal life, these storage solutions are exactly what you need to create a nurturing environment.
Floating open shelving will provide you with extra space to stash your essentials while allowing you to keep track of the new things you bring into your life. Without drawers to hide away clutter, shelves enable you to visually audit all your belongings, purge the unnecessary and prevent your home from becoming a graveyard of things you don’t need.
If you don’t fancy driving nails into your walls, get the Bagdad shelf unit. This neat and sleek piece will smoothly fit into any minimalist style living area and add a classic touch to your decor.
Minimalists also need an intellectual chamber for bettering themselves. But instead of a bookshelf that occupies an entire wall, go for a slim floor-to-ceiling piece such as the IDIYA Fraser bookcases.
It will keep all your copies neatly organised and easily accessible, while also adding some style to your space. This bookshelf don’t even have to be used for books. You can use it to store other valuables.
Using multi-purpose furniture will help you minimize the items you own and save space. And you can do all that without compromising style. Consider a dining table that has storage compartments or an ottoman with inbuilt storage.
The IDIYA Greece clothes rack can be used to hang your outfits, house shoes, and organise books all at the same time.
To ensure your minimalist lifestyle remains intact, some of your items will definitely need a drawer. Invest in beds, coffee tables, bedside tables, or wardrobes fitted with clever drawers.
These compartments are perfect for hiding those unsightly essentials that can’t be displayed on open shelves. For instance, you can get the IDIYA Glascow cabinet to store electronics, cables, tools, toys, and cleaning supplies. The IDIYA Grampian storage unit is another simple yet fantastic option.
The first step to organizing your shoe and clothes collection is recycling and donating the ones you never wear. But after the purge, where do you store the outfits you wear routinely? Buy the IDIYA Hawaii clothes rack.
It’s simple in shape, has no extra decoration, and is versatile enough to be used for other items aside from clothes and shoes. The Barbados clothes rack is another clean and sleek piece with a cloth rail and 2 tier shelves to keep your possessions organised and tidy.
For anyone that has a considerable amount of shoes to put away, a hanging shoe organiser is an excellent option. It’s installed along the wall and arranges your footwear in rows.
Apart from preventing your closet from overflowing, it will help you keep an eye on all the shoes you own, allowing you to curb your footwear spending. There are many hanging designs that can fit up to 20 pairs of shoes. But if you prefer something that stands on the floor, opt for the neat, compact, and stackable Basel shoe rack.
If unimportant items are taking over your home, it’s time to change things. Instead of hiding the clutter out of sight, there are smart options that allow you to store only what is valuable.
Use floating shelves, simple racks, floor-to-ceiling bookcases, furniture with hidden storage, and baskets. Browse through our site to discover more simple and neat minimalist storage solutions.
