It’s amazing how much furniture we accumulate that travels with us throughout our lives. Kitchen supplies, unused clothing, dated furniture -- the list is endless. By sifting through these items, you can easily eliminate the extra stuff that you no longer can fit or benefit from.

Start with the items hiding in the back of the cabinets gathering dust -- like that deviled egg dish you picked up at a second hand store. If you can’t remember why you have that thing, take it to a charity. You’ll be shocked at how organized your cabinets and closets become! And don’t forget to look at your furnishings as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a large sectional to a quaint loveseat and coffee table to better suit your Fishers apartment.

Find Ways To Construct Hidden Storage Spaces

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

Begin this innovative thinking in the kitchen. Add spice shelves on the inside of or under the pantry to free up some counter space. Magnetic knife strips take cutlery off the counter or open up a drawer. Or purchase 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 finding some pieces that can double as a storage solution. What about a secret storage ottoman to hide board games or seating with storage under it for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or bins under your bed can hold off-season clothes. And don’t forget that stashing rarely used stuff in a detached garage can also maximize some apartment space in Fishers.

The Power Of Illusion Can Help You Fit Comfortably In The Space You Have

Simply because you have a smaller floor plan does not mean your apartment space has to feel small.

Brighten up your apartment with natural lighting by putting up some translucent curtains. The removal of heavy curtains or blinds will allow for more light to be shared in the space and give your space room to breathe. Or, design with light and put in some fun fixtures that get rid of drab, claustrophobic areas.

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