No, Minimalism Isn’t Dead — Here’s Why.

You may have heard claims that minimalism is dead, but this simply isn’t true. To make these claims is to misunderstand what minimalism is and its lasting effects. 

Minimalism rose in popularity over the last few years. Followings of YouTubers, bloggers, and personalities such as Marie Kondo, The Minimalists, and Matt D’Avella skyrocketed as everyone clamored to figure out how to get rid of their stuff the right way. 

But COVID-19 lockdowns have left some people in barren homes that they don’t love and yearning for more possessions. Many regret stripping their closets, kitchens, and art supplies now that the outside world is less accessible. 

Does this mean minimalism is gone? No, of course not. Minimalism existed before you heard of it and it’ll live on, even if the mainstream focus shifts away from it.
