Minimalism may sound simple, but it can be harder to achieve than it seems. The idea is to create a peaceful environment in your home where you won’t be distracted by too much clutter, bright colours or furniture that draws your eye to it. Go for furniture that blend in with the rest of the interior, rather than grabbing too much attention. A fitted wardrobes in a style that you like can help to save space and allow you to store lots of things.
But once you start actually removing items from your home, you might find it hard to decide what to keep and what to discard, give away or sell. A way to decide whether you really want to get rid of certain things is to store them in a box and bring them to a storage space, an attic or a basement. If you still haven’t taken the item out of that box after six months, you probably won’t need it in the future.
Hippy culture became popular in the 1960’s and is having a resurgence today. The Hippies of the 60’s liked bright colours, psychedelic patterns and other designs on their clothes, such as flowers. Painted wardrobes in pretty, bold colours such as green, pink or red can be paired with decorative wallpapers or colourful feature walls and retro lamps.
This style became popular a few years ago when rustic elements such as pipes and driftwood were increasingly seen in interior designs on Pinterest, Instagram and similar sites. It became fashionable to combine unfinished materials such as metal and wood. Rough wood shelves were supported by metal pipes and pipes were even used as curtain rods. This is a very affordable style with a simple appeal.
Modern, polished styles always have a clean and elegant look. Combining sleek finished materials, earthy tones and glossy floors, this is a simple design that could be found in office spaces, hotels or modern flats.
When choosing a style, it’s usually best to think long-term. If it’s a style that is very fashionable at the moment you might get tired of it very quickly and will need to refurnish your home. Since buying new furniture can be so expensive, basic items such as a fitted wardrobe that can work with any design can be useful.
