It’s amazing how much stuff we collect that comes with us throughout our lives. Kitchen supplies, old clothing, hand-me-down furniture -- the list is endless. By going through these things, you can easily get rid of those items that you no longer can fit or benefit from.

Go ahead and start with the outdated stuff at the back of the pantry collecting dust -- such as that deviled egg tray you found at a flea market. If you don’t remember why you have something, donate it to a charity. You’ll be amazed at how roomy your cabinets and closets become! And don’t forget to consider your furniture as well. Think about downsizing from a cumbersome sectional to a smaller loveseat and coffee table to better fit your Indianapolis apartment.

Identify Ways To Construct Hidden Storage Spaces

Residing in an apartment means you will have to work with the current floor plan. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t look at it in a different and creative ways. By thinking vertically, finding storage in your furniture, and getting innovative with your shelving options, you can make storage spots almost anywhere.

Kick off this innovative thinking in the kitchen. Add spice organizers on the inside of or below the cabinets to free up your counter space. Magnetic knife holders get cutlery off the counter or open up a drawer. Or invest in a colorful tea kettle or dutch oven that looks like an art piece on the stove instead of taking up cupboard storage.

Then try locating some furnishings that can double as a storage solution. How about a hideaway ottoman to tuck away board games or a couch with storage below for blankets and decorative pillows? Drawers or tubs under the bed can store off-season clothes. And don’t forget that stashing rarely used things in the apartment’s detached garage can help maximize some apartment space in Indianapolis.
