3 Ways to Maximize Space in A Tiny Apartment

Published by Webmaster

Tiny Apartment, Huge Potential

So many of us at one point or another have lived in cramped city apartments or homes. Chicago is full of them—from tiny studios to constricted two-bedrooms—you can move in feeling a little claustrophobic. Maybe you’ve got a bit more than you imagined and are having trouble fitting it all in your apartment, or maybe you’re having trouble finding the best way to utilize the space. These 3 easy tips will help you make your space feel bigger and hopefully make you feel better about your little living arrangements.

Versatile Furniture

There is a whole marketplace out there that is meant to solve the very problem of small living spaces. Versatile furniture can be a great solution to maximizing your space. Murphy beds, folding chairs, and collapsible or nesting tables are all great options for this. Use furniture that doubles as storage, like ottomans and day beds. Check out this great site for space-saving furniture options: http://resourcefurniture.com/

Use Vertical Space

Your tiny apartment may not have a ton of square footage—but cubic footage is another ballgame. Remember how much vertical space there is to take advantage of in an apartment! Utilize tall book cases, the space high up in cabinets and even above cabinets, and remember to stack, stack, stack! There are a few really creative ways to take advantage of vertical space and you can read about some of them here: http://www.refinedroomsllc.com/go-vertical/

Color & Décor

Light, soft colors generally open up a space, whereas dark colors generally make spaces seem smaller than they are. Using stark contrast can help create focal points in your home that can also make a space feel larger. Don’t be afraid to utilize decorations to maximize your space. Hanging things higher up on the wall, using long ceiling-to-floor curtains, and a lot of mirrors can dramatically change the perception of a space’s size.

Of course, one of the most obvious ways to make your home feel bigger is to simply have less in it. Decluttering your space will give you room to breathe. This process is made easier by storage units and they can come a lot cheaper than you might think. To see storage space quotes from Aaron Bros, click here!
