It doesn't matter if you live in a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you can easily find your family wanting more storage in your apartment. Fortunately, maximizing apartment space in Indianapolis is simpler than you think. From getting rid of unwanted items to putting in new storage, here are some quick yet practical ways to make your living space much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Indianapolis With A Quick Declutter

It’s fascinating how much stuff we acquire that goes with us from place to place. Kitchen gadgets, old clothing, dated furniture -- the list never ends. By sifting through these things, you can easily get rid of those items that you no longer can fit or benefit from.

Start with those things at the back of the cupboards accumulating dust -- for instance that deviled egg tray you found at Goodwill. If you don’t remember why you have that thing, take it to a charity. You’ll be amazed at how clutter-free your cabinets and closets become! And don’t forget to evaluate your seating as well. Think about downsizing from a bulky sectional to a quaint loveseat and coffee table to better suit your Indianapolis apartment. 

Look For Ways To Establish Hideaway Storage Spaces

Living in an apartment means you will have to work in the current floor plan. Fortunately, that doesn’t mean you can’t look at it in a fresh and creative ways. By thinking vertically, finding storage in your furniture, and getting innovative with your shelving options, you can locate space almost anywhere.

Kick off this new thinking in the kitchen. Install spice racks on the inside of or under the cabinets to free up the counter space. Magnetic knife strips get 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 as opposed to taking up cabinet space.

Then try finding some furniture that can operate as a storage solution. How about a storage ottoman to tuck away board games or a couch with storage space underneath 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 Indianapolis.

The Power Of Illusion Makes You Fit Comfortably In The Space You Have

Simply because you have a smaller floor plan should not mean your apartment living space has to feel cramped.

Open up your home with natural lighting by adding some chiffon curtains. The removal of heavy 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 put in some fun fixtures that get rid of dreary, claustrophobic areas.

Not interested in new curtains? Create the illusion of extra light by putting mirrors in your apartment. Mirrors used throughout your apartment can immediately make any room appear larger.
