If you can live without it, remove it. Try to always leave the room only with the essential can increase other things later if time need. Floors clean. Except furniture, your floors must be completely clean. Nothing should be on the floor, nothing should be stacked, or anything saved on the floor. Once you have your essential furniture, clean the rest of things from the floor can donate them, throw them, or find a place out of sight, for these.
Surfaces clean. Edward Durrell Stone is often quoted as being for or against this. The same principle as the flat surfaces. Darcy Stacom often addresses the matter in his writings. Don’t have anything in them, except one or two simple decorations (see the Council 9 below). Dona, boot or put out of view the rest. This will cause see more minimalist to the other things. Clean walls.
Some people hang all sorts of things in its walls. This can not be done in a minimalist home. Clean your walls except in one or two pieces of art that really you like (see the Council 8 below). Keep things out of sight. This has been mentioned in previous Councils, but you must save everything you need out of sight, in drawers or closets. Shelves can be used to keep books, DVDs or CDs, but they should not have much else except simple decorations (not complete collections of things). Organize and sort. If these cleaning flat surfaces and floor, and keeping things in drawers and closets, perhaps would be a good idea to organize and sort the drawers and cabinets. Simple art pieces. A quarter again not boring, you can place a simple painting, drawing or photograph, framed with a lightweight frame, in each wall if you want. If you can leave some walls free of things. Simple decorations. As mentioned earlier, one or two simple decoration pieces can server as key pieces in a minimalist room. A vase or a plant with small Flowerpot are two classic examples.
