Whether you reside in a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you will probably find your family looking for more room in your apartment. The good news is maximizing apartment space in Fishers is easier than it sounds. From decluttering to putting in new storage, here are some easy yet useful ways to make your living space much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Fishers With A Simple Declutter

It’s surprising how much furniture we acquire that goes with us throughout our lives. Kitchen supplies, old clothing, hand-me-down furniture -- the list goes on and on. By going through these items, you can easily eliminate the things that you no longer need or benefit from.

Begin with the items hiding in the back of the pantry gathering dust -- such as that deviled egg serving plate you picked up at Goodwill. If you don’t remember why you have something, take it to a charity. You’ll be surprised at how roomy your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to evaluate your seating as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a bulky sectional to a smaller loveseat and coffee table to better suit your Fishers apartment. 

Identify Ways To Create Hidden Storage Spaces

Living in an apartment means you have to work with the set floor plan. Luckily, that doesn’t mean 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 find storage almost anywhere.

Begin this new thinking in the kitchen. Put spice organizers on the inside of or below the cupboards to clear up the 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 looks like an art piece on the stove instead of taking up pantry storage.

Then try locating some pieces that can double as a storage solution. How about a secret storage ottoman to hide board games or a sofa with storage under it for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or tubs under a bed can hide off-season clothes. And don’t forget that putting rarely used stuff in the apartment’s detached garage can also maximize some apartment space in Fishers.

The Power Of Illusion Can Help You Be Content With The Space You Have

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

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

Not interested in new curtains? Provide the illusion of additional light by installing mirrors in your space. Mirrors used throughout your living space can instantly make any room feel larger.
