How To Maximize Apartment Living In Indianapolis

Whether you have a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you may find your family needing additional space in your apartment. Luckily, maximizing apartment space in Indianapolis is easier than it sounds. From removing unused items to installing new storage, here are some simple yet effective ways to make your apartment much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Indianapolis With A Easy Declutter

It’s surprising how much furniture we collect that goes with us from place to place. 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 the items tucked away in the back of the cupboards collecting dust -- like that deviled egg dish you found 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 roomy your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to evaluate your furnishings as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a large sectional to a cozy loveseat and coffee table to better furnish your Indianapolis apartment.

Find Ways To Create Hideaway Storage Spaces

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

Begin this creative thinking in the kitchen. Install spice racks on the inside of or below the cabinets to clear up your counter space. Magnetic knife holders 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 cabinet storage.

Then try locating some pieces that can double as a storage solution. What about a hideaway ottoman to tuck away board games or a sofa with storage space below for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or bins under your 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 small.

Open up your living space with natural lighting by putting up some sheer curtains. The elimination of heavy curtains or blinds will let in more light to come in the home and give your space room to breathe. Or, design with light and include some fun fixtures that get rid of dark, claustrophobic areas.

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