The goal is to create a calm, clutter-free environment that enhances your quality of life. Whether you're starting from scratch or looking to revamp your space, this comprehensive guide will help you achieve a Muji style home through the perfect wallpapers to complement your decor.

5 tips to achieve your very own Muji style home

Tip #1: Start to declutter your space

The first step to achieving a Muji style home is to declutter. This means removing unnecessary items and keeping only what you truly need. Here are some tips:

  • Sort and categorise: go through your belongings and categorise them into keep, donate, and discard piles.
  • Storage solutions: invest in storage solutions that help you keep your items organised. Think about hidden storage, modular shelves, and multi-functional furniture.
  • Minimal decor: keep decorations to a minimum. Choose a few statement pieces that reflect your personal style without overwhelming the space.

Tip #2: Choose Natural Materials

Incorporating natural materials is essential for creating a Muji style home. These materials add warmth and texture, making your space feel more inviting. Consider the following:

  • Wood: use wooden furniture, flooring, and accents. Opt for light-coloured woods like oak, pine, or birch to maintain a bright and airy feel.
  • Textiles: choose cotton, linen, and wool for your textiles. These materials are not only sustainable, but also add a cosy touch to your home.
  • Plants: bring nature indoors with houseplants. They purify the air and add a refreshing green element to your decor.

Tip #3: Stick to a neutral colour palette

A neutral colour palette is a hallmark of Muji style. It creates a calming atmosphere and makes your space feel more open. Here are some tips for choosing colours:

  • Whites and beiges: use whites and beiges as your base colours. They create a clean and serene backdrop for your decor.
  • Earth tones: incorporate earth tones like browns, greys, and greens. These colours add depth and warmth to your space.
  • Accent colours: add subtle pops of colour with accessories and textiles. Stick to muted tones to maintain a cohesive look.

Tip #4: Be focused on functionality

Functionality is key in a Muji style home. Every item should serve a purpose and contribute to the overall aesthetic. Here are some ideas:

  • Multi-functional furniture: choose furniture that can serve multiple purposes. For example, a sofa bed, a coffee table with storage, or a dining table that doubles as a workspace.
  • Smart storage: invest in smart storage solutions that help you keep your space organised. Think about modular shelves, under-bed storage, and wall-mounted units.
  • Minimalist layout: arrange your furniture in a way that maximises space and flow. Keep pathways clear and avoid overcrowding your rooms.

Tip #5: Implement sustainability right in your home

Sustainability is at the core of Muji style. Choose eco-friendly products and materials that have a minimal impact on the environment. Here are some tips:

  • Quality over quantity: invest in high-quality items that will last longer. This reduces waste and saves money in the long run.
  • Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle: practise the three R's in your daily life. Reduce your consumption, reuse items whenever possible, and recycle what you can.
