Over the years, more and more people have embraced the concept of minimalism in practically all aspects of their life. The reasons differ from the most practical (ex. cost of living is less) to the most interesting (ex. not a lot of “garbage” in the home). It is important to note, however, that minimalism is a centuries-old concept. Way before our world became cluttered with all the high-tech gadgets.
When it comes to homes or households, the Italian concept of minimalism is one of the most common. Of late, quite a number of architects and interior designers have used Italian minimalist home designs as inspiration for their designs. There are only a few pieces of furniture – just the essentials – and the appliances are limited to the ones that are often used. The result is a clean, organized, and relaxing home, people were already practicing a simpler way of living.
So what is minimalism?
Minimalism is about cutting down everything to the minimum; to only the things that you need to live comfortably and happily. In other words, you don’t need to grip over 100 pairs of shoes in the closet. You should have only one living room set. And your bathroom should not house a variety of shampoos, soaps, and conditioners.
Some people say minimalism is an effective way of de-cluttering and de-stressing. They say that those who live a minimalist lifestyle are usually the ones who are happiest, most productive, and most content.
This is why a lot of people are now trying to emulate the Italian way of living.
Italians are known to be living a simple lifestyle. While it’s true that they can have the most modern, high quality, and expensive items in their homes, these are only the ones that they need the most; the ones they use on a daily basis.
