It doesn't matter if you reside in a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, or a penthouse, you can easily find your family wanting more room in your apartment. Luckily, maximizing apartment space in Westfield is easier than it sounds. From getting rid of unwanted items to installing new storage, check out some quick yet effective ways to make your living space much more open and airy. 

Maximize Apartment Space in Westfield With A Simple Declutter

It’s fascinating how much furniture we accumulate that comes with us from place to place. Kitchen supplies, old clothing, dated furniture -- the list goes on and on. By combing through these items, you can easily get rid of the extra stuff that you no longer use or benefit from.

Go ahead and start with the items at the back of the cupboards gathering dust -- such as that deviled egg serving plate you found at a second hand store. If you don’t remember why you have that item, donate it to a charity. You’ll be surprised at how organized your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to evaluate your furnishings as well. Think about downsizing from a cumbersome sectional to a quaint loveseat and coffee table to better furnish your Westfield apartment. 

Find Ways To Create Secret Storage Spaces

Living comfortably in an apartment means you need to work in the existing floor plan. However, that doesn’t set in stone that you can’t look at it in a fresh and creative ways. By thinking vertically, finding storage in your furniture, and getting creative with your shelving options, you can find storage spots almost anywhere.

Start this innovative thinking in the kitchen. Install spice shelves on the inside of or under the cupboards to free up the counter space. Magnetic knife strips get cutlery off the counter or clean up a drawer. Or purchase a brightly-colored tea kettle or dutch oven that shows like an art piece on the stove as opposed to taking up cabinet storage.

Then try identifying some furnishings that can operate as a storage solution. How about a storage ottoman to tuck away board games or a couch with storage space under it for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or containers under a bed can hold off-season clothes. And don’t forget that putting rarely used things in a detached garage can really maximize some apartment space in Westfield.

The Power Of Illusion Makes You Be Content With The Space You Have

Just because you have a small floor plan does not mean your apartment living space has to feel tiny.

Open up your apartment with natural lighting by putting up some sheer curtains. The elimination of heavy curtains or blinds will let in more light to be shared in the apartment and give your apartment room to breathe. Or, decorate with light and put in some fun fixtures that remove dark, claustrophobic areas.

Don’t want to install new curtains? Create the illusion of extra light by putting mirrors in your area. Mirrors used throughout your home can immediately make any room appear larger.

  • Put in vertical storage units and wall organizers to help allow you more floor space.
