Living in an apartment has a lot of advantages especially if you don’t want the hassle of worrying about property taxes and maintenance of owning a big house. One of the downsides, however, is the space. Average apartments are typically smaller, especially those living in the city, so it’s hard to save space.
If you are currently in this tight situation and looking for ways to maximize the space in your apartment, then this post is for you. Here are some quick and easy tips to help you save more space without compromising your comfort and functionality.
Look for Size-Appropriate Furniture
Bulky and over-sized furniture pieces look nice and comfy until you bring them home and realize they occupy all the space that you have. That’s why if you are trying to make your apartment appear wider, then look for pieces that are multi-purpose. An ottoman with a storage underneath but can also serve as a stool? Count me in!
This is also the time to evaluate your current furniture situation and replace any bulky pieces that are taking over your space. Find smaller and more functional pieces like convertible futon or a foldable table that you can stow away when not in use.
Time to Declutter
We’ve all accumulated some stuff that we might’ve forgotten throughout the years. Remember that cute jacket you said you would wear everyday when you bought it? And then you forgot it existed?
Start doing an inventory of the things that you don’t use anymore. Anything you haven’t used or worn in the past 6 months should either be sold or donated to charity. Use your earnings from this sale and buy more worthy space-saving storage organizers.
Find Ways to Add More Storage
To save space in your apartment, create more storage! There are a lot of creative ways to add more storage without compromising your space. Try mounting floating shelves or installing extra clothing rods to your bedroom. You can also add some racks on the back of your door for extra storage.
You can also try to customize baskets and bins to store more items, at the same time serving as décor to beautify your place.
These tips are really easy to do but will definitely help you save space in your apartment. Improve your space with determination, creativity, and by following the tips mentioned here. Stop sacrificing your space and start organizing your place!
