Small Apartments- How Can I Save Space?

When you live in close quarters, it may seem like you don't have enough room for anything. But if you take some tips from the masters of small-scale living—urban apartment dwellers—you will find that you can make the most out of every square inch... and that there is enough room for everything you need! So if you've been wondering how to save some space in your home, here are 3 quick tips.

1. Get as much storage as you can.

When things don't have a place in your home and are sprawled about, your rooms look and feel smaller. So, if you want to make your home more functional and spacious, get your hands on floating shelves, storage ottomans, cube storage units, under-the-bed and couch storage bins, and more. The more you tuck away, the neater and freer your living space will be.

2. Use multi-functional furniture.

Today's growing cost of living pushes many to live in smaller quarters. Multifunctional furniture is responding to this trend by enabling residents to get more than one use out of a piece of furniture. Let's say you have a small studio apartment and need to have space for your bed and other essential pieces of furniture like a sofa or desk. A Murphy bed that folds into the wall and converts into a daytime desk or sofa is going to be a game-changer.

3. Be a Minimalist.

Minimalism is not just a hot trend in Japan; it's good for you. An uncluttered living space is good for your mind, body, and soul. When you toss out the things you don't wear or use frequently, you'll find that the space that you once thought was cramped is actually quite spacious after all!
