Not all homeowners have the luxury of a large space, and those that do, look out for a new way to maximize their space.
That is why we put together, tips to help you to Maximize Your Living Area
Use lighter or neutral colors to allow your furniture and accessories to stand out. Because of the reflective nature of light colors, they usually trick the eye to believe that a space is bigger and airier than it normally is.
Natural light makes rooms feel bigger and airier. If your apartment doesn’t get enough natural light for your taste, consider using brighter colors, mostly whites, when decorating. Whites used to make a room feel more open.
If you like colors, you can always add pops of color through the rest of the décor.
For optimum effect, go for colors like Light Blue, Green, or Cream.
DECLUTTER THAT SPACE
This can be a hard one because people have a lot of sentimental objects in their homes. If there are things you simply cannot do without but know you won’t be able to fit into your new place, think about renting a storage unit close by.
When you’re moving and looking for a moving company, bear in mind that many of them, offer storage services as well. Deciding on a company like that, you will be able to kill two birds with one stone. You will have much less to worry about.
GET MULTIFUNCTIONAL PIECES OF FURNITURE
Use furniture that will serve several functions. It always pays to have a piece of furniture that can do the job of two. That way, you don’t have too much furniture in the way.
You have probably seen desks whose upper parts serve as shelves as well. Something like this checks off both the aforementioned boxes.
Getting a loft bed is also something that can help with space. If you don’t have your bed covering all that space, you can use that space for a cozy reading nook, or a working space with a desk and additional shelving for storage.
Another good double use of a bed is provided by dresser beds. They are usually slightly taller than regular beds and contain several rows of drawers underneath the bed frame. This could solve a lot of your closet troubles.
Out of the Closet
This goes along with the tip about using your clutter for good.
If you have lots of clothes, bags, and shoes, there is a way to organize them to look great and spare you from worrying about closet space.
The main thing to be careful with is keeping it organized. Otherwise, it will look messy and start taking over your space.
Much like color-coding your books, you can do the same with your clothes in any way that makes sense for your particular taste.
The easiest way to maximize bed space in a studio apartment is to have a sofa bed. This, however, can be a pain in the neck. Most people love to have separate sleeping quarters. Eventually, they stop bothering to turn the bed back into a daytime sofa after a while.
