Minimalistic living is the ultimate sophistication
Jun 24, 2020
Minimalist living is a way of life. This might sound abstract, but in essence, it is about finding joy in less.
It is safe to say most of us have had the experience of pushing all our items in a closet, or cabinet, and barely being able to close the door because there is just too much. Minimalist living is not just about organizing things. Rather, decluttering is the first step to minimalism.
Decluttering is a not a once-and-for-all chore. On the contrary, it is a process of clearing clutter from your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and home. During your decluttering session, you might want to reevaluate your belongings:
Do you own multiple items that serve the same purpose?
Do you still keep things you haven't used in the past year?
Do you take more than 10 minutes to find something you need?
If your answer is yes to any of the above questions, you should consider decluttering your home. We understand decluttering is a painful process. Not only does it take time (hours if not days), but it is also a tiring chore.

One of the main reasons we started koti studio is to help people live happier with less. Owning high quality pieces means you are no longer wasting money on items that only last a season or two, but invest in things that you would like to keep. Think about all the fast fashion pieces you have bought over the years - you could probably afford a few designer pieces with the money you spent.
Minimalist living is not easy. The good news is you don't have to do it right away. Treat it as a process and start with the smaller space in your home. Experiment it for a few days and hopefully, like us, you will feel the difference.
