Maximize Apartment Space in Broad Ripple With A Simple Declutter

It’s fascinating how much furniture we acquire that goes with us throughout our lives. Kitchen tools, old clothing, hand-me-down furniture -- the list is endless. By going through these things, you can easily eliminate the extra stuff that you no longer can fit or benefit from.

Begin with the items hiding in the back of the pantry collecting dust -- such as that deviled egg tray you found at a flea market. If you don’t remember why you have something, give it to a charity. You’ll be surprised at how organized your cabinets and closets become! And don’t forget to consider your furniture as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a cumbersome sectional to a smaller loveseat and coffee table to better fit your Broad Ripple apartment.

Look For Ways To Create Hideaway Storage Spaces

Living comfortably in an apartment means you need to work with the current floor plan. However, that doesn’t say you can’t look at it in a new and creative ways. By thinking vertically, adding storage in your furniture, and getting creative with your shelving options, you can locate storage spots almost anywhere.

Start this new thinking in the kitchen. Put spice shelves on the inside of or under the cupboards to tidy up your counter space. Magnetic knife racks take cutlery off the counter or free up a drawer. Or invest in a brightly-colored tea kettle or dutch oven that looks 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 storage ottoman to put away board games or a sofa with storage space underneath for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or containers under your bed can hide off-season clothes. And don’t forget that storing rarely used things in a detached garage can also maximize some apartment space in Broad Ripple.

The Power Of Illusion Can Help You Appreciate The Space You Have

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

Open up your living space with natural lighting by putting in some sheer curtains. The removal of bulky curtains or blinds will allow for more light to come in the apartment and give your living areas room to breathe. Or, decorate with light and put in some modern fixtures that eliminate dark, claustrophobic areas.

Not interested in new curtains? Generate the illusion of extra light by adding mirrors in your apartment. Mirrors used throughout your home can quickly make any room look larger.
