How To Maximize Apartment Living In Westfield

Regardless if you reside in a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you may find yourself wanting more storage in your apartment. Fortunately, maximizing apartment space in Westfield is easier than you think. From removing unused items to putting in new storage, here are some quick yet useful ways to make your apartment much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Westfield With A Easy Declutter

It’s amazing how much furniture we accumulate that goes with us every time we move. Kitchen gadgets, old clothing, broken down furniture -- the list goes on and on. By sifting through these items, you can easily get rid of those items that you no longer can fit or benefit from.

Go ahead and start with the outdated stuff hiding in the back of the pantry accumulating dust -- such as that deviled egg serving plate you found at a second hand store. If you can’t remember why you have that thing, take it to a charity. You’ll be amazed at how clutter-free your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to evaluate your furnishings as well. Think about downsizing from a cumbersome sectional to a cozy loveseat and coffee table to better fit your Westfield apartment.

Find Ways To Create Hidden Storage Spaces

Living comfortably in an apartment means you have to work within the existing floor plan. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t look at it in a fresh and creative ways. By thinking vertically, finding storage within furniture, and getting creative with your shelving options, you can locate storage spots almost anywhere.

Begin this innovative thinking in the kitchen. Put spice racks on the inside of or under the pantry to free up the counter space. Magnetic knife racks get cutlery off the counter or open up a drawer. Or purchase a colorful tea kettle or dutch oven that acts like an art piece on the stove instead of taking up cupboard space.

Then try identifying some furnishings that can serve as a storage solution. How about a storage ottoman to hide board games or a sofa with storage space under it for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or containers under a bed can hide off-season clothes. And don’t forget that storing rarely used things in your detached garage can help maximize some apartment space in Westfield.

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

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

Lighten up your living space with natural lighting by putting in some chiffon curtains. The removal of bulky curtains or blinds will let in more light to come in the space and allow your space room to breathe. Or, illuminate the room with light and include some fun fixtures that eliminate dreary, claustrophobic areas.

Not interested in new curtains? Create the illusion of extra light by installing mirrors in your apartment. Mirrors used throughout your apartment can quickly make any room feel larger.
