It doesn't matter if you live in a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you can easily find yourself wanting additional space in your apartment. Fortunately, maximizing apartment space in Indianapolis is easier than it sounds. From decluttering to putting in new storage, check out some simple yet effective ways to make your place much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Indianapolis With A Simple Declutter

It’s amazing how much junk we accumulate that travels with us throughout our lives. Kitchen gadgets, unused clothing, broken down furniture -- the list is endless. By combing through these things, you can easily eliminate the things that you no longer can fit or benefit from.

Start with those things tucked away in the back of the cupboards collecting dust -- like that deviled egg dish you found at Goodwill. If you don’t remember why you have something, give it to a charity. You’ll be shocked at how roomy your cabinets and closets become! And don’t forget to evaluate your furnishings as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a bulky sectional to a quaint loveseat and coffee table to better suit your Indianapolis apartment. 

Find Ways To Construct Hideaway Storage Spaces

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

Start this creative thinking in the kitchen. Install spice organizers on the inside of or below the cabinets to free up the counter space. Magnetic knife strips get cutlery off the counter or free up a drawer. Or buy a colorful tea kettle or dutch oven that shows like an art piece on the stove to limit it from taking up cabinet space.

Then try locating some pieces that can serve as a storage solution. What about a storage ottoman to put away board games or a couch with storage under it for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or bins under a bed can hide off-season clothes. And don’t forget that stashing rarely used stuff in a detached garage can really maximize some apartment space in Indianapolis.

The Power Of Illusion Can Help You Be Content With The Space You Have

Simply because you have a small floor plan should not mean your apartment living area has to feel cramped.

Open up your living space with natural lighting by putting in some chiffon curtains. The removal of bulky curtains or blinds will allow for more light to be shared in the apartment and allow your space room to breathe. Or, illuminate the room with light and add some fun fixtures that get rid of drab, claustrophobic areas.

Not wanting to put up new curtains? Provide the illusion of more light by adding mirrors in your apartment. Mirrors used throughout your home can quickly make any room appear larger.
