For those who live in apartments, it can sometimes seem that there’s no real way to make the rented space into a home. This is very unfortunate because there are lots of people who live in apartments for many years. Some for their entire lives. Fortunately, here at Affiniti Management Services, we have lots of ideas for sprucing up apartments in Springfield, providing you with the ability to turn your rental space into something that truly feels like a home.
Vertical storage is a must
Apartments come in all shapes and sizes, but many of them tend to be quite small. If you live in an apartment that doesn’t boast lots of space, it’s important to take advantage of any and all vertical height, and this especially applies if you have vaulted ceilings. By adding storage shelves to the walls, this can clear off countertops, free up bathroom space and lots more.
Adding mirrors to the walls can greatly increase the appearance of space in your apartment. As a result, you’ll feel as if you live in a more open area, which can do lots for your mental health because you won’t feel so closed in all of the time.
Add a few window treatments
Window treatments can get a bit expensive, but they are very advantageous. They can add beauty and character to any room in your home as well as help you manage the amount of sun and moonlight that enters into your apartment.
Build a storage bed
There are plenty of spaces in your home that can act as storage space, including under your bed. In fact, creating under bed storage is one of the best ways to get the most room out of your bedroom, while at the same time helping you organize and store your out-of-season clothes and accessories.
Sectionals optimize space
If you need lots of seating in your living room but you don’t have room for a couch, sofa, chair, and recliner, consider investing in a sectional. Best of all, lots of sectionals have built in recliners, and they tend to be very affordable. It’s not uncommon to find sectionals that can seat up to seven to 12 people for well under $1,000.
