How To Maximize Apartment Space In Carmel

It doesn't matter if you have a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you will probably find your family looking for more storage in your apartment. Luckily, maximizing apartment space in Carmel is simpler than you think. From decluttering to putting in new storage, check out some simple yet practical ways to make your apartment much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Carmel With A Quick Declutter

It’s amazing how much furniture we accumulate that comes with us throughout our lives. Kitchen supplies, outgrown clothing, hand-me-down furniture -- the list never ends. By sifting through these items, you can easily eliminate those items that you no longer need or benefit from.

Start with those things hiding in the back of the pantry gathering dust -- such as that deviled egg tray you found at a second hand store. If you can’t remember why you have that item, donate it to a charity. You’ll be surprised at how clutter-free your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to look at your furnishings as well. Think about downsizing from a bulky sectional to a smaller loveseat and coffee table to better fit your Carmel apartment.

Identify Ways To Construct Secret Storage Spaces

Living in an apartment means you will have to work within the set floor plan. Fortunately, that doesn’t mean you can’t look at it in a different and creative ways. By thinking vertically, adding storage in your furniture, and getting resourceful with your shelving options, you can locate storage spots almost anywhere.

Kick off this creative thinking in the kitchen. Install spice shelves on the inside of or under the pantry to clear up some counter space. Magnetic knife strips take cutlery off the counter or clean up a drawer. Or invest in a brightly-colored tea kettle or dutch oven that shows like an art piece on the stove instead of taking up pantry space.

Then try finding some furniture that can operate as a storage solution. What about a secret storage ottoman to put away board games or a sofa with storage underneath for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or bins under the bed can store off-season clothes. And don’t forget that stashing rarely used stuff in your detached garage can really maximize some apartment space in Carmel.

The Power Of Illusion Can Help You Fit Comfortably In The Space You Have

Simply because you have a smaller floor plan doesn’t mean your apartment space has to feel small.

Open up your living space with natural lighting by adding some sheer curtains. The removal of thick curtains or blinds will let in more light to come in the space and give your apartment room to breathe. Or, decorate with light and put in some modern fixtures that remove dreary, claustrophobic areas.

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