Regardless if you have a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you may find yourself looking for more storage in your apartment. Luckily, maximizing apartment space in Fishers is simpler than it sounds. From removing unused 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 Fishers With A Easy Declutter

It’s fascinating how much stuff we acquire that travels with us throughout our lives. Kitchen tools, old clothing, dated furniture -- the list goes on and on. By going through these items, you can easily eliminate the extra stuff that you no longer use or benefit from.

Go ahead and start with the items at the back of the cupboards accumulating dust -- such as that deviled egg tray you picked up at a second hand store. If you can’t remember why you have something, take it to a charity. You’ll be surprised at how clutter-free your cupboards and closets become! And don’t forget to consider your furnishings as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a large sectional to a cozy loveseat and coffee table to better furnish your Fishers apartment. 

Identify Ways To Create Secret Storage Spaces

Living comfortably in an apartment means you have to work within the set floor plan. Luckily, that doesn’t say you can’t look at it in a fresh and creative ways. By thinking vertically, adding storage in your furniture, and getting innovative with your shelving options, you can make space almost anywhere.

Kick off this new thinking in the kitchen. Install spice organizers on the inside of or under the cabinets to clear up your counter space. Magnetic knife racks take cutlery off the counter or free up a drawer. Or purchase a brightly-colored tea kettle or dutch oven that acts like an art piece on the stove to limit it from taking up cupboard storage.

Then try finding some furniture that can operate as a storage solution. How about a secret storage ottoman to put away board games or seating with space under it for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or tubs under a bed can store off-season clothes. And don’t forget that stashing rarely used stuff in a detached garage can help maximize some apartment space in Fishers.

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

Just because you have a compact floor plan doesn’t mean your apartment space has to feel tiny.

Open up your apartment with natural lighting by putting in some translucent curtains. The elimination of bulky curtains or blinds will let in more light to come in the home and allow your living areas room to breathe. Or, design with light and include some fun fixtures that remove dark, claustrophobic areas.

Not wanting to put up new curtains? Create the illusion of additional light by installing mirrors in your area. Mirrors used throughout your living space can quickly make any room look larger.
