How to Make the Most of Your Living Space

When it comes to decorating your new apartment, the tiny details of how you choose to organize and decorate your new place make the world of a difference! Learn how to make the most of your space and stay clutter-free with these tips:

Choose furniture that allows for multiple purposes

  • Use a dresser as a TV stand and use the drawers to store blankets, DVD’s, personal belongings and more
  • Select a bed frame that includes storage shelves or drawers underneath
  • Select a coffee table or entryway table that includes shelves, cubbies, or drawers
  • The Kallax unit from IKEA is a dual purpose piece that is functional and stylish

Make the most out of spaces that normally go to waste

  • Buy hanging baskets or cubbies to put above the empty space in your bathroom vanity above your shampoos and soaps
  • Use the insides of cabinet doors to hang extra storage baskets by adding Command Strip Hooks
  • Use mason jars to store your dry ingredients in the kitchen and ditch the packaging that often takes up too much unnecessary space

Decorate smarter

  • When hanging drapes for your windows, install your curtain rod above your windows to draw the eye upward
  • Bookcases function as storage and decor. Find tall bookcases to give yourself more storage and make your space appear larger
  • Use an area rug to help define the space, even if your apartment has carpeting this small detail will help create a defined area while bringing personality to the space
