Maximize Apartment Space in Carmel With A Quick Declutter

It’s fascinating how much stuff we accumulate that travels with us every time we move. Kitchen gadgets, outgrown clothing, dated furniture -- the list goes on and on. By sifting through these things, you can easily eliminate the extra stuff that you no longer use or benefit from.

Start with those things at the back of the cupboards gathering dust -- for instance that deviled egg tray you found at Goodwill. If you can’t remember why you have that item, give it to a charity. You’ll be surprised at how organized your cupboards and closets become! And don’t forget to evaluate your furniture as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a large sectional to a quaint loveseat and coffee table to better fit your Carmel apartment.

Identify Ways To Create Hideaway Storage Spaces

Residing in an apartment means you need to work with the existing floor plan. Luckily, that doesn’t mean you can’t look at it in a different and creative ways. By thinking vertically, implementing storage in your furniture, and getting resourceful with your shelving options, you can make storage almost anywhere.

Begin this creative thinking in the kitchen. Put spice organizers on the inside of or underneath the cabinets to free up your counter space. Magnetic knife holders get cutlery off the counter or open up a drawer. Or purchase a brightly-colored tea kettle or dutch oven that shows like an art piece on the stove as opposed to taking up pantry space.

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

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

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

Brighten up your living space with natural lighting by adding some sheer curtains. The removal of bulky curtains or blinds will let in more light to be shared in the home and give your living areas room to breathe. Or, decorate with light and put in some cute fixtures that get rid of dreary, claustrophobic areas.

Don’t want to install new curtains? Provide the illusion of additional light by adding mirrors in your area. Mirrors used throughout your apartment can instantly make any room look larger.
