How To Maximize Apartment Living In Westfield

It doesn't matter if you reside in a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you will probably find your family looking for more storage in your apartment. Fortunately, maximizing apartment space in Westfield is simpler than it first appears. From removing unused items to installing new storage, here are some simple yet practical ways to make your living space much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Westfield With A Quick Declutter

It’s fascinating how much furniture we collect that goes with us from place to place. Kitchen supplies, outgrown clothing, hand-me-down furniture -- the list never ends. By going through these items, you can easily get rid of the things that you no longer need or benefit from.

Begin with those things at the back of the cabinets gathering dust -- for instance that deviled egg tray you got at a flea market. If you can’t remember why you have that item, give it to a charity. You’ll be amazed at how roomy your cupboards and closets become! And don’t forget to evaluate your furniture as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a bulky sectional to a quaint loveseat and coffee table to better suit your Westfield apartment.

Look For Ways To Establish Secret Storage Spaces

Living comfortably in an apartment means you need to work with the current floor plan. Luckily, that doesn’t say you can’t look at it in a different and creative ways. By thinking vertically, implementing storage inside of furniture, and getting innovative with your shelving options, you can locate storage spots almost anywhere.

Begin this creative thinking in the kitchen. Put spice organizers on the inside of or under the cabinets to free up some counter space. Magnetic knife racks get cutlery off the counter or clean up a drawer. Or buy a colorful tea kettle or dutch oven that shows like an art piece on the stove instead of taking up cabinet space.

Then try identifying some furniture that can double as a storage solution. What about a hideaway ottoman to hide board games or a sofa with space below for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or tubs under your bed can store off-season clothes. And don’t forget that stashing rarely used things in your detached garage can help maximize some apartment space in Westfield.

The Power Of Illusion Helps You Be Content With 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 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 apartment and allow your space room to breathe. Or, illuminate the room with light and add some cute fixtures that eliminate drab, claustrophobic areas.

Don’t want to install new curtains? Provide the illusion of extra light by installing mirrors in your space. Mirrors used throughout your living space can immediately make any room appear larger.
