We know that adopting a fully minimal home design can seem a little scary, especially if you think that with less belongings comes a natural reduction in comfort, but we want to open your mind to some of the amazing ways that living with less clutter can be achieved. Ask any interior designer and they'll tell you that scaling back on your fussy accessories and the way you choose your furniture can lead to a cosy, beautiful home that feels perpetually spacious and fresh—and who wouldn't want that? From your kitchen to your bedroom, there are a host of great tips you can try, to relieve yourself of some cumbersome clutter, so why not pull up a chair and enjoy 21 of them, right now?

1. Opt for statement furniture, but a little less of it! Colour won't hurt!

2. Make more of natural materials for a blended look.

3. Keep your bathroom practical, rather than jam-packed with pretty additions.

4. Use pale wall colours to good effect and leave them fairly bare.

5. Extend your uncluttered look out to your terrace or patio as well. So cohesive!

6. Fit high-level shelving, to keep the clutter above eye-level.

7. Glass installations will always offer a more unfussy look!

8. Inset wall shelving is incredible for creating a seamless and simple aesthetic.

9. Integrating your appliances and technology makes for a very streamlined design.

10. Wood and white work so well to create a fresh and uncluttered look!

11. Singular large furniture pieces will look less 'bitty' and dotted around than numerous smaller ones.

12. Try using textures, as apposed to colour, to add a little dynamic style.

13. Wood flooring will add all the warmth you need, without clutter!

14. You can't really have too much white, when unfussy design is what you want.

16. See if you can go without bulky handles, for an uncluttered kitchen!

17. Look for innovative technology solutions that can disappear from view!

18. Try to include classic furniture shapes that are tried and tested and don't dominate a room.

19. Learn the difference between clutter and comfort. Rugs are NOT too fussy!

20. Think about adopting an open-plan aesthetic by removing some walls!

21. Symmetry can be key to keeping a few things out on display!
