Use TV Stands And Cubbies

Nowadays, people mount their TVs to their walls, eliminating a TV stand, making more space in their living rooms for other things. While this is such a great idea, if you are looking for more shelving or cubby-like space, maybe a TV stand isn’t such a bad idea for your living room after all. It doesn’t even have to be an actual TV stand that is being sold specifically for your set, either. You can get creative with other things, too.

You could get a cubed shelf in your living room and put your TV on top of that. In turn, you are using the cubby spaces underneath to put other things, such as your game consoles, DVD player, cable box, movies, and games. Even pictures and small knick-knacks if you wish to. In the bedroom, you could use the top of your dresser for your TV instead of using a separate stand for your television, giving you more space for other things in your room, too.

Keep A Tidy House

While being organized and making sure you don’t have an abundance of things helps make your house feel more minimalized, keeping your home tidy will also help a lot. If you keep it messy, it will look cluttered, and no one will notice that you are an organized person. You may know that your cabinets or your closets are organized, but others won’t, and they won’t even guess they are if there’s junk lying around on your counters or floors.

Make sure you only have a few couch pillows out on your couch. Too many will make it look cluttered and tacky- not minimalist at all. Dirty dishes in the sink will make your kitchen look messy. Try to dry them and put them away soon after washing so that they also don’t take up extra space on the counter afterward. If your shoes aren’t tucked away, be sure they aren’t flung around the room. Straighten them up by the door so that they look neat and in place. Little things like that can make a big difference in the appearance of your home, too.
