Maximize Apartment Space in Indianapolis With A Simple Declutter

It’s fascinating how much junk we accumulate that goes with us from place to place. Kitchen tools, unused clothing, dated furniture -- the list goes on and on. By going through these items, you can easily throw out the things that you no longer use or benefit from.

Go ahead and start with those things at the back of the cupboards gathering dust -- for instance that deviled egg serving plate you picked up at a flea market. If you don’t remember why you have something, give it to a charity. You’ll be shocked at how clutter-free your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to look at your seating as well. Think about downsizing from a bulky sectional to a cozy loveseat and coffee table to better fit your Indianapolis apartment.

Find Ways To Create Secret Storage Spaces

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

Begin this creative thinking in the kitchen. Install spice organizers on the inside of or under the cupboards to free up your counter space. Magnetic knife racks get cutlery off the counter or clean up a drawer. Or invest in 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 identifying some furnishings that can serve as a storage solution. What about a storage ottoman to hide board games or seating with space underneath for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or tubs under the bed can store off-season clothes. And don’t forget that stashing rarely used things in the apartment’s detached garage can also maximize some apartment space in Indianapolis.

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