Mastering minimalist design for sale

7 May 2022

Minimalist aesthetics have top billing when it comes to interior design. A clear space leads to a clear mind, right?

But most of us, even if we’re not hoarders in the true sense of the term, tend to accumulate a bevy of “things” in our homes.

So, how do you master minimal design when it comes time to sell? Here’s a few tips.

Less is more

Simplify your set-up. The basic art of purging your home of clutter is fundamental to mastering a minimalist space.

Many of us went into overdrive when COVID hit, cleaning out cupboards, decluttering and making donations to the local op shop, the chances are we’re well on our way to a minimalist vibe.

Out of sight, out of mind

When it comes to preparing your home for sale, we don’t need all our personal effects, family photos and knick knacks on show if we’re about to open our homes for inspection.

Prospective buyers are likely to be overwhelmed by overflowing shelves and clutter. Give them an opportunity to envision themselves living in your home.

Go the extra step and pack up all the additional bits and pieces around your home and store them out of sight. Pare back your “stuff” and choose a few special things to showcase in your home.

One step at a time

If the prospect of creating a minimalist look is a tad overwhelming, take it one room at a time.

Breaking what might be a mammoth task into manageable chunks will make the job a lot less onerous. And focussing on one room might provide inspiration for the next room on your list.

Call in a professional

If you don’t have the mental bandwith or foresight to strip your home to create a minimalist vibe, there are plenty of professionals who can step in and help – with or without your assistance.

There are a range of professional decluttering and organisation services in Perth who have specialised skills to improve the functionality and efficiency of your home.

Similarly, sometimes it’s best to consider investing in a physical staging campaign for your home to make sure it looks its best when it comes time to sell.

While it can be an additional expense and significant effort moving your furniture out and new furniture in, staging a home does create a more appealing feel. And agents say it can pay dividends when it comes to attracting the highest the sale price.
