Liv Northgate Takes a Look at Minimalism

Interior of apartment bedroom

 

At Liv Northgate, our apartments feature plenty of storage space options, including walk-in closets, which means you have room for your belongings! But sometimes less is more, and in today’s post, we’re taking a look at paring down. We’re not saying jump on the minimalism train head first, but it is worth taking a look at the ideas behind living a minimalist lifestyle.

The Idea of Minimalism Considered

Minimalism focuses on the removal of clutter and distractions, quality over quantity, and simplicity. Minimalist homes generally have few choice pictures or wall decorations, neutral colors, and multi-functional furniture. Though there are guidelines for a minimalist home, you don’t need to follow them exactly. You’re free to put your own spin on things and add your personality to it at your Gilbert, AZ apartment!

Taking Advantage of the Storage Space in Your Gilbert Apartment

Plenty of people have found great ways to make the most of their time or their space. Try them out yourself to see how much easier they can make your life! Good Housekeeping has a list of 102 best tips to get your home super organized that you can check out. We like the ideas to use CD holders to organize storage container lids and to repurpose a magazine file to store your hair tools. Also save space in your closet by doubling up your hangers.

 

We also liked the advice given in the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. These principles work great in any room of your home — especially the closet! These tips, adapted from the book, come from One Kings Lane. The site says, “First, put your hands on everything you own, ask yourself if it sparks joy, and if it doesn’t, thank it for its service and get rid of it. Second, once only your most joy-giving belongings remain, put every item in a place where it’s visible, accessible, and easy to grab and then put back. Only then, Kondo says, will you have reached the nirvana of housekeeping, and never have to clean again.”
