Choose furniture that serve multiple purposes to make the most out of them. For example, using a hollowed out ottoman for a coffee table or opting for a sofa bed that can double as a sofa and a bed.
Find ways to maximize every space possible, especially the ones that are hidden. Store clothes and other items in a plastic container under your bed or under your sink.
Measure Before Buying
You need to work with the limited space so make sure you’re measuring it before you get furniture that’s too large or too small. Not having the right size can make the apartment look smaller than it is.
Purge your apartment of the unnecessary and be aggressive about getting rid of items. Digitize memorabilia you’re hanging onto and dispose of items you’re not using. Clutter can make a small home seem cramped and getting rid of it will create more visible space. Photo by Kimberly Murray Photography via Style Me Pretty
