It’s surprising how much stuff we acquire that goes with us throughout our lives. Kitchen supplies, outgrown clothing, dated furniture -- the list is endless. By combing through these things, you can easily throw out the things that you no longer need or benefit from.

Go ahead and start with the items at the back of the cupboards gathering dust -- for instance that deviled egg dish 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 roomy your pantry and closets become! And don’t forget to evaluate your seating as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a large sectional to a smaller loveseat and coffee table to better suit your Carmel apartment.

Look For Ways To Establish Secret Storage Spaces

Residing in an apartment means you will have to work within the existing floor plan. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t look at it in a different and creative ways. By thinking vertically, adding storage within furniture, and getting resourceful with your shelving options, you can locate storage almost anywhere.

Start this innovative thinking in the kitchen. Install spice shelves on the inside of or underneath the cabinets to clear up your counter space. Magnetic knife strips get cutlery off the counter or clean up a drawer. Or buy a colorful tea kettle or dutch oven that shows like an art piece on the stove instead of taking up pantry space.

Then try locating some pieces that can serve as a storage solution. What about a hideaway ottoman to put away board games or a sofa with space under it for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or tubs under a bed can store off-season clothes. And don’t forget that storing rarely used stuff in the apartment’s detached garage can also maximize some apartment space in Carmel.

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

Just because you have a compact floor plan should not mean your apartment space has to feel small.

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

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