Maximize Apartment Space in Carmel With A Quick Declutter

It’s amazing how much furniture we collect that comes with us every time we move. Kitchen tools, old clothing, broken down furniture -- the list goes on and on. By going through these things, you can easily get rid of the things that you no longer need or benefit from.

Begin with the items hiding in the back of the cabinets collecting dust -- like that deviled egg dish you picked up at a flea market. If you can’t remember why you have that item, take it to a charity. You’ll be shocked at how organized your cabinets and closets become! And don’t forget to consider your seating as well. Think about downsizing from a bulky sectional to a cozy loveseat and coffee table to better fit your Carmel apartment.

Identify Ways To Create Secret Storage Spaces

Residing in an apartment means you need to work with the set floor plan. Fortunately, that doesn’t say you can’t look at it in a fresh and creative ways. By thinking vertically, adding storage inside of furniture, and getting resourceful with your shelving options, you can make storage almost anywhere.

Begin this innovative thinking in the kitchen. Add spice organizers on the inside of or under the pantry to free up your counter space. Magnetic knife racks take cutlery off the counter or clean up a drawer. Or invest in a colorful tea kettle or dutch oven that acts like an art piece on the stove as opposed to taking up pantry storage.

Then try locating some furnishings that can operate as a storage solution. What about a storage ottoman to tuck away board games or a sofa with storage space under it for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or bins under your bed can hide off-season clothes. And don’t forget that stashing rarely used stuff in the apartment’s detached garage can help maximize some apartment space in Carmel.

The Power Of Illusion Can Help You Appreciate The Space You Have

Just because you have a smaller floor plan does not mean your apartment living area has to feel cramped.

Open up your home with natural lighting by putting in some chiffon curtains. The elimination of bulky curtains or blinds will allow for more light to be shared in the apartment and allow your apartment room to breathe. Or, decorate with light and include some modern fixtures that remove dark, claustrophobic areas.

Don’t want to install new curtains? Create the illusion of additional light by adding mirrors in your area. Mirrors used throughout your living space can instantly make any room appear larger.
