It’s amazing how much junk we accumulate that goes with us every time we move. Kitchen supplies, outgrown clothing, dated furniture -- the list is endless. By sifting through these items, you can easily throw out the things that you no longer can fit or benefit from.

Go ahead and start with the items hiding in the back of the cupboards gathering dust -- like that deviled egg serving plate you got at Goodwill. If you can’t remember why you have that item, give it to a charity. You’ll be surprised at how clutter-free your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to consider your furniture as well. Think about downsizing from a bulky sectional to a quaint loveseat and coffee table to better furnish your Fishers apartment. 

Identify Ways To Create Hideaway Storage Spaces

Living in an apartment means you have to work in the set floor plan. However, that doesn’t set in stone that you can’t look at it in a new and creative ways. By thinking vertically, implementing storage inside of furniture, and getting creative with your shelving options, you can find storage almost anywhere.

Start this new thinking in the kitchen. Put spice racks on the inside of or below the cupboards to free up your counter space. Magnetic knife racks get cutlery off the counter or free up a drawer. Or buy a brightly-colored tea kettle or dutch oven that looks like an art piece on the stove as opposed to taking up cabinet space.

Then try finding some furniture that can double as a storage solution. What about a storage ottoman to hide board games or a sofa with storage underneath for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or bins under the bed can hide off-season clothes. And don’t forget that putting rarely used items in a detached garage can help maximize some apartment space in Fishers.

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

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

Brighten up your apartment with natural lighting by putting in some translucent curtains. The elimination of heavy curtains or blinds will let in more light to come in the home and give your living areas room to breathe. Or, illuminate the room with light and include some modern fixtures that remove dreary, claustrophobic areas.

Not wanting to put up new curtains? Provide the illusion of additional light by adding mirrors in your space. Mirrors used throughout your home can instantly make any room look larger.
