Transforming a standard house into a minimalist's sanctuary is a dramatic change that takes serious work, but that's the ultimate goal for many people today. If you're looking to simplify your life or make your home more efficient, you can achieve those goals with access to quality Solana Beach storage units and a solid decluttering strategy. See the tips below to learn how to transform your home into the efficient minimalist sanctuary you've always wanted. 

Set a Goal for Your Home

Before you can achieve the perfect minimalist household you need to know what that means to you. For some people that means not having anything that isn't being used. For others, it means having a sleek and orderly home. Decide why you're trying to create a minimalist home and keep those reasons in mind as you clean and organize your home.

Do Away with Duplicates

Once you know what your end goal is, it's time to start doing away with the excess you don't need. Start off by getting rid of duplicates of items you don't need duplicates of. If you can only use one of the items you shouldn't have multiples stored in your house. Start searching through the items in your home, but begin in a single room and work your way around your house slowly to avoid getting overwhelmed. 

Toss What You Don't Use

Once you get rid of your duplicates you can move on to the items that you just don't use very often. Sort through your house setting aside objects you don't think you use much. Give them away or sell them to get them out of your house. If you aren't confident enough to commit to removing them from your life just yet, you can place them into your Solana Beach self-storage unit for a few months first to see how you do without the items. Just make sure you look through your self-storage regularly and get rid of items from there once you're confident that you don't miss them. 

Separate and Categorize Your Home

Getting rid of items is a vital part of becoming a minimalist, but for most people so is organizing your space. After all, one of the main goals of most aspiring minimalists is to have a home that's more functional. The best way to accomplish that goal is to organize your home by themed categories. Dedicate the sections of your house to specific purposes and you can easily sort the items in your space. When you're finished you'll have a better idea about the extra items you have laying around and you can decide which items should go to your Solana Beach storage, and what you should just get rid of for once and for all.
