How To Maximize Apartment Living In Sylvania

Whether you reside in a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you will probably find yourself looking for more storage in your apartment. Luckily, maximizing apartment space in Sylvania is simpler than you think. From decluttering to putting in new storage, check out some easy yet useful ways to make your place much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Sylvania With A Simple Declutter

It’s amazing how much furniture we accumulate that travels with us from place to place. Kitchen supplies, unused clothing, broken down furniture -- the list is endless. By sifting through these items, you can easily get rid of the things that you no longer use or benefit from.

Begin with the outdated stuff tucked away in the back of the pantry collecting dust -- such as that deviled egg serving plate you found at a flea market. If you don’t remember why you have that thing, take it to a charity. You’ll be amazed at how roomy your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to consider your furniture as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a large sectional to a smaller loveseat and coffee table to better suit your Sylvania apartment.

Find Ways To Create Hidden Storage Spaces

Living in an apartment means you will have to work with the existing floor plan. Fortunately, 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 resourceful with your shelving options, you can find storage spots almost anywhere.

Kick off this new thinking in the kitchen. Put spice racks on the inside of or underneath the pantry to free up the counter space. Magnetic knife strips take cutlery off the counter or free up a drawer. Or purchase a brightly-colored tea kettle or dutch oven that looks like an art piece on the stove instead of taking up cupboard storage.

Then try identifying some furniture that can operate as a storage solution. What about a hideaway ottoman to put away board games or a sofa with storage below for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or bins under your bed can store off-season clothes. And don’t forget that storing rarely used stuff in a detached garage can also maximize some apartment space in Sylvania.

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

Just because you have a compact floor plan doesn’t mean your apartment living space has to feel small.

Brighten up your apartment with natural lighting by adding some sheer curtains. The elimination of thick curtains or blinds will let in more light to come in the apartment and give your living areas room to breathe. Or, decorate with light and put in some fun fixtures that eliminate drab, claustrophobic areas.

Not interested in new curtains? Create the illusion of additional light by adding mirrors in your apartment. Mirrors used throughout your living space can quickly make any room look larger.
