Functional Storage for Space Conservation

What is Minimalism?

According to The Minimalists, Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus, “minimalism is a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important – so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom.” It’s not wrong to have things, but the minimalism movement encourages material items to have purpose and function in our lives.

Minimalism Influences in Design and Décor

Translating the minimalism mindset to design means that each addition to our home adds value, purpose, and passion. The latest design trends capitalize on these features.


The foundation of a room is simple, pure, and intentional. Rather than buying things to fill the space, purchase functional pieces you love that truly add to the room. This exact concept looks different to each individual homeowner. You’ll find success by intentionally selecting each piece. Are you passionate about this item or style? If it’s not a must-have item, you probably don’t need it in your home.


Customize the living space to suit your needs. Don’t feel stuck with its original layout. Fluidity is key to crafting a functional space that gives you joy. Rework the space to find the right balance and combination of things.


Cramped living spaces are maximized with functional cabinets featuring hydraulic, easy-close doors that open for storage and conceal it upon closing. You’ll also notice multi-tiered drawers to double up storage without taking up more physical space. New storage designs assist with removing clutter.
