Architecture has the ability to transform our perception, our organizational skills, and our lives. Minimalist architecture designs are becoming more prevalent in today’s expanding society. Having more and “keeping up with the Jones” is exhausting, superficial and time-consuming. Spending endless amounts of cash on the latest and greatest things, toys and experiences often leave many people in a rut. Working longer hours to pay for more stuff that they don’t have time to use anyway! Architecturally Distinct Solutions in Kelowna understands the freedom that comes with the “less is more philosophy.” Key elements for a minimalistic lifestyle include:
- Love it or list it… don’t keep items (aka clutter) around for the wrong reasons. Purge and move on. If someone somewhere else will love the item, it’s time to pass it on.
- Multi-purpose spaces, furniture and setting. Enjoying an atmosphere that is flexible and provides everything you need can be obtained with careful planning and architectural design. Sliding power sockets, moving walls, and hidden beds are great places to start.
- Stop impulse design and shopping. If you really love an idea…sleep on it! Or keep the receipts in case buyer’s remorse sets in. Impulse buying is the fastest way to accumulate too much “stuff.”
Architecture & Your Peace Of Mind
Your Kelowna architect knows that creating a harmonious, functional space requires an honest assessment of key personality traits and self-reflection. This can be extremely difficult for people who are so busy keeping up appearances or pleasing others that they may not have taken the time to evaluate their inner goals, wishes and preferences. Simplifying your life and adopting a minimalistic lifestyle often starts with being present and focused. Determining what you think you need to succeed will help you secure the proper setting and happier lifestyle. Trying to create a natural oasis within the city core can still leave you with traffic, noise, air, and water pollution issues that may bring more stress into your life.
