If you have a tendency to be a little messy, invest in closed storage. Most media storage units have open shelving on the top with closed cabinets on the bottom. Look for furniture that does double-duty, too - think ottomans that double as storage containers, or end tables with drawers.
Organise your media
Keep your magazines and books organised by putting them into dedicated areas. This will make the room feel more organised, and it will be easier to find that book that you've been meaning to read.
Keep your coffee table visible
Flat surfaces tend to be landing zones for things like keys and unopened letters. Trays can be great for holding these items, along with remotes and other things that may not have a permanent home.

This may seem like starting a new habit at first buy once you get into the routine of it, it will help you maintain a cleaner home in very little time. Take a walk through the room as one of the last things you do at the end of the day, pick up everything that doesn' belong and put it all away.
OK minimalism may not be for everyone but there's no denying that less is more. Having clean, tidy living spaces is
