How To Maximize Apartment Space In Indianapolis

Regardless if you live in a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you may find yourself wanting additional space in your apartment. Fortunately, maximizing apartment space in Indianapolis is easier than you think. From decluttering to putting in new storage, check out some quick yet practical ways to make your apartment much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Indianapolis With A Easy Declutter

It’s surprising how much junk we accumulate that comes with us every time we move. Kitchen gadgets, outgrown clothing, dated furniture -- the list never ends. By combing through these things, you can easily get rid of the things that you no longer can fit or benefit from.

Go ahead and start with the items tucked away in the back of the pantry accumulating dust -- like that deviled egg tray you found at Goodwill. If you don’t remember why you have something, donate it to a charity. You’ll be shocked at how organized your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to look at your furnishings as well. Think about downsizing from a large sectional to a cozy loveseat and coffee table to better suit your Indianapolis apartment.

Identify Ways To Establish Secret Storage Spaces

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

Kick off this new thinking in the kitchen. Put spice racks on the inside of or under the pantry to clear up your counter space. Magnetic knife holders take cutlery off the counter or clean up a drawer. Or buy a brightly-colored tea kettle or dutch oven that acts like an art piece on the stove as opposed to taking up cabinet space.

Then try identifying some furnishings that can double as a storage solution. What about a hideaway ottoman to hide board games or a couch with storage under it for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or tubs under a bed can store off-season clothes. And don’t forget that storing rarely used items in your detached garage can help maximize some apartment space in Indianapolis.

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

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

Lighten up your living space with natural lighting by putting in some sheer curtains. The elimination of thick curtains or blinds will allow for more light to come in the home and give your apartment room to breathe. Or, illuminate the room with light and add some modern fixtures that get rid of dark, claustrophobic areas.

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