How to Maximize The Space in Your Apartment

How-to Attain a Spacious Apartment

With the modern apartment homes being built today, this could not be farther from the truth. Spacious floor plans, modern amenities, and smart storage solutions are changing the way we view apartment living. At Estling Village, we are proud to offer townhome style apartments that really feel like home, allowing residents to maximize an already spacious floor plan. Here are our tips for maximizing space in your apartment.

Use Optical Illusions to Your Advantage

There are many little things you can do to trick yourself (and visitors to your apartment) into thinking your apartment is bigger than it actually is. The most common interior design trick is to hang a mirror in each room of your apartment. Mirrors trick the eye into making an apartment feel much larger than it actually is because of the way mirrors reflect light. Another trick is to place floating shelves on the upper half of your wall. Shelving will serve to keep your space more organized, but it also draws the eye upward. This, in effect, makes your ceilings feel taller than they actually are!  

Invest in Multipurpose Furniture

Multipurpose or functional furniture is able to serve more than a singular purpose. Our favorite multipurpose furniture is coffee tables that have extra storage inside, ottomans with hidden built-in storage, and television stands with built-in bookcases. Sometimes you have to get creative to ensure your furniture is helping you maximize storage, but it can make a huge difference in how much space you have in your apartment!

Keep Your Space Tidy

A tidy space will inherently look larger than a space that is messy and cluttered. By creating habits that keep your space more clean and organized, you will ensure your apartment looks as spacious as possible. Go through your apartment and get rid of items that you don’t need or feel attached to. Next, keep items that you love neatly organized on shelves or put away in drawers. Keep your cabinets and common areas organized and never leave items on the floor or countertops. Small changes to your routine, such as picking up clothes and shoes off of the floor, will help you maintain a consistently tidy space.

Store Bulky Items Under the Bed

Rather than taking up precious floor space with your bulkier items, use the floor space that is already being taken up by your bed. We recommend investing in bed risers to raise the height of your bed and provide around six inches of extra height. Use storage bins to organize items and store them neatly in this newly found space. Your bed being taller will also make the room feel a little bigger and more luxurious!
