Whether you live in a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you may find your family wanting more room in your apartment. Fortunately, maximizing apartment space in Indianapolis is easier than it sounds. From removing unused items to putting in new storage, here are some simple yet practical ways to make your place much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Indianapolis With A Easy Declutter

It’s amazing how much furniture we collect that comes with us every time we move. Kitchen supplies, outgrown clothing, broken down furniture -- the list is endless. By combing through these items, you can easily throw out those items that you no longer need or benefit from.

Go ahead and start with those things tucked away in the back of the cupboards gathering dust -- such as that deviled egg dish you picked up at a flea market. If you don’t remember why you have that item, take it to a charity. You’ll be shocked at how organized your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to look at your furniture as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a large sectional to a cozy loveseat and coffee table to better furnish your Indianapolis apartment. 

Look For Ways To Create Hidden Storage Spaces

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

Start this creative thinking in the kitchen. Install spice racks on the inside of or below the cupboards to clear up your counter space. Magnetic knife racks take cutlery off the counter or clean up a drawer. Or invest in a colorful tea kettle or dutch oven that shows like an art piece on the stove to limit it from taking up cupboard storage.

Then try finding some pieces that can double as a storage solution. What about a secret storage ottoman to tuck away board games or a sofa with storage space underneath for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or bins under the bed can hold off-season clothes. And don’t forget that putting rarely used items in the apartment’s detached garage can really maximize some apartment space in Indianapolis.

The Power Of Illusion Helps You Appreciate The Space You Have

Just because you have a smaller floor plan does not mean your apartment living space has to feel cramped.

Open up your living space with natural lighting by putting up some sheer curtains. The elimination of bulky curtains or blinds will let in more light to come in the space and give your space room to breathe. Or, decorate with light and add some cute fixtures that eliminate dreary, claustrophobic areas.

Not wanting to put up new curtains? Provide the illusion of more light by putting mirrors in your space. Mirrors used throughout your living space can quickly make any room feel larger.
