It’s fascinating how much junk we collect that goes with us every time we move. Kitchen tools, old clothing, broken down furniture -- the list is endless. By going through these items, you can easily throw out the extra stuff that you no longer use or benefit from.

Begin with the items hiding in the back of the cupboards gathering dust -- like that deviled egg serving plate you found at Goodwill. If you can’t remember why you have that thing, take it to a charity. You’ll be amazed at how organized your cupboards and closets become! And don’t forget to look at your furnishings as well. Maybe consider downsizing from a large sectional to a smaller loveseat and coffee table to better fit your Greenwood apartment.

Find Ways To Establish Secret Storage Spaces

Living comfortably in an apartment means you have to work with the current 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.

Start this new thinking in the kitchen. Put spice organizers on the inside of or below the cupboards to free up some counter space. Magnetic knife strips take cutlery off the counter or clean up a drawer. Or invest in a colorful tea kettle or dutch oven that acts like an art piece on the stove instead of taking up pantry space.

Then try identifying some pieces that can double as a storage solution. How about a hideaway ottoman to tuck away board games or a sofa with storage space under it for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or containers under a bed can store off-season clothes. And don’t forget that stashing rarely used things in your detached garage can also maximize some apartment space in Greenwood.

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

Open up your living space with natural lighting by putting in some chiffon curtains. The removal of thick curtains or blinds will allow for more light to come in the space and allow your living areas room to breathe. Or, illuminate the room with light and add some modern fixtures that remove dreary, claustrophobic areas.

Not interested in new curtains? Provide the illusion of more light by adding mirrors in your space. Mirrors used throughout your living space can quickly make any room look larger.
