With apartment living, space is a commodity one must use well. There are ways to make your house look great while not taking away the precious space you have. In fact, by making smart decisions you will be able to create a living space that is both fashionable and functional. Here are three tips on how you can do just that.



  • Storage on Storage on Storage: What do we mean by this? Well, implementing furniture that can act as storage will keep your rooms clutter free while also adding a little stylistic flair. For example, using a repurposed chest as a coffee table can give your living room a rustic feel that can double as additional storage space. You could also get end tables to go on the sides of your couch or behind it to give your room a modern feel to it. Finding ways to make your furniture work double will be a great way to open up your space.
  • Shelves: Shelves can do a lot to make room in your home. A good solution is wall hanging shelves. This makes it so you have ample shelving space, but with out the bulk of a proper cabinet or bureau. With additional shelving in tight spots, you can make your house very modern without breaking the bank or cluttering your home.
  • Furniture placement: If you have furniture that you want in your room, you’ll want to find ways to pair it up with the others. End tables in our first tip are good examples of this, but making the idea work best requires creative thinking. You could take a long table and put it against the back of a couch. Using design sensibilities will go a long way, but, let’s say, you have a long thing table that doesn’t really fit anywhere at the moment. You could take that same table and position your couch to have its back face an open area. Put the table behind the couch and you now have a chic appeal, that doubles as additional storage for books and pictures.


These tips will really help you open up your apartment space by making it more utilitarian in function, but with a flair for layout and design. It all comes down to creative thinking and how you can best make your room space work for you.
