Less Is More No Matter What Stage You Are At

Looking to quickly upgrade your space?
Not just buy a bigger home to put more stuff in but to thoughtfully improve the space you are in now.
Look at each room with a curator's eye and evaluate what the space is used for and what is absolutely essential to keep for the room's defined purpose.
Whenever sellers get ready to sell, the number one task and perhaps their most daunting task at hand is to declutter and depersonalize their homes.
This allows potential home buyers to see the home with the rooms defined in the most optimal way and buyers can truly imagine themselves living in the beautifully curated space of the home you have crafted.
The use of the rooms and flow of the layout in a home matters more than the grand size of the rooms. If you are really attached to your California King sized bed you are probably not going to find a true Queen Anne Victorian home with a master bedroom to accommodate a mammoth sized bed like that. Sprawling furniture lends itself to ranch style home layouts.
If you are at the stage in life where you are planning to buy a new home, weeding through your belongings can go a long way to make the upcoming move much easier. If you have edited your 'stuff' to the things you really need and love, packing for the move is less work.
In the TED Talk video below, writer and designer Graham Hill makes the case for having less stuff leading to more happiness.
Consider that less things in a room can lead to better utility and a more beautiful space too.
