    27 Things That’ll Help Transform Your Home Into A Minimalist’s Dream Come True

    The world may be complicated, but your life doesn't have to be.

    1. This set of microfibre bedsheets that looks clean, polished, and simple. The naturally crinkled texture also means you can literally pull it straight out of the dryer — no ironing needed.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Reviewers say it's incredibly soft, and helps to keep them cool and comfy all night long. It also comes with two pillowcases!

    Get the set on Amazon Canada for $52.99+ (available in two sizes and six colours).

    2. This multipurpose squeegee, because cleaning products can be minimalist, too. One side has tiny silicone bristles to help you scrub and dust, while the other side makes short work of cleaning mirrors, countertops, and other smooth surfaces. It's the 2-in-1 product you didn't know you needed (but most definitely do).

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Reviewers love how easily the bristles tackle messes around the sink — it even fits in the snug space behind the tap! Plus, it's an easy, eco-friendly alternative to paper towels.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.

    3. These simple bento boxes that will deliver on both function and style. The silicone seal is airtight and leakproof, so your meal stays fresh until you're ready to chow down — and doesn't end up inside your bag.

    Reviewers say they're incredibly durable, and love how the elastic on the top adds an extra layer of security.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $21.99+ (available in two sizes and two colours).

    4. A concrete desktop planter that'll fuel your green thumb while also keeping your office supplies neat and tidy. The solid design won't tip over the next time you're reaching for a pen, either.

    Even though the front section is intended as a tiny planter, that doesn't mean you can't repurpose it as a small catch-all tray for things like paper clips.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $25.

    5. This set of non-spill salt and pepper mills that's as useful as it is attractive. Your table will look like a million bucks! According to reviewers, the ceramic grinding mechanism is super efficient. The brilliant inverted design prevents little crumbs of salt and pepper from littering counters and tabletops, too!

    6. A sleek bathtub caddy with extendable handles that'll hold your favourite book, all your bathtime skincare, and even a glass of wine, so you can have the most luxurious and relaxing soak of your life. The handles are coated in rubber to prevent accidental slippage, too.

    7. A lovely olive oil dispenser that'll make your countertop look a little bit more refined. The built-in handle makes pouring a pleasure, and the special spout not only keeps oils and vinegars fresher for longer, but also means you can control the flow a lot easier (goodbye, globs of oil).

Reviewers love that it makes a delicious brew, and say it's helped them waste less coffee if they're making a cup just for themselves.
