It doesn't matter if you live in a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you may find yourself looking for more storage in your apartment. Fortunately, maximizing apartment space in Westfield is simpler than it first appears. From decluttering to putting in new storage, here are some easy yet practical ways to make your place much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Westfield With A Easy Declutter

It’s surprising how much stuff we accumulate that travels with us throughout our lives. Kitchen supplies, old clothing, hand-me-down furniture -- the list never ends. By sifting through these items, you can easily get rid of the things that you no longer can fit or benefit from.

Start with the outdated stuff at the back of the cabinets gathering dust -- for instance that deviled egg tray you got at a second hand store. If you can’t remember why you have something, donate it to a charity. You’ll be shocked at how organized your cabinets 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 Westfield apartment. 

Look For Ways To Construct Hidden Storage Spaces

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

Kick off this new thinking in the kitchen. Add spice racks on the inside of or underneath the cupboards to free up some counter space. Magnetic knife holders take cutlery off the counter or open up a drawer. Or invest in a brightly-colored tea kettle or dutch oven that acts like an art piece on the stove to limit it from taking up cabinet space.

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

The Power Of Illusion Helps You Fit Comfortably In The Space You Have

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

Lighten up your apartment with natural lighting by putting in some translucent curtains. The removal of bulky curtains or blinds will let in more light to come in the space and give your apartment room to breathe. Or, decorate with light and add some modern fixtures that remove dark, claustrophobic areas.

Not interested in new curtains? Create the illusion of additional light by installing mirrors in your space. Mirrors used throughout your living space can immediately make any room feel larger.
