4 Space Saving Tricks To Make Your Apartment Feel Bigger

4 Space Saving Tricks To Make Your Apartment Feel Bigger
  • Opening Intro -

    If you find yourself on a tight budget, you may be living in an apartment that feels a bit too small for your liking.

    However, since you know this is going to be the place you call home for the next few years, you want to do all you can to make it feel as comfortable as possible.


While you may not be able to physically make your apartment larger, you can use a few neat tricks to make it feel bigger. To know which tricks work best, here are some you can try.

Get Rid of the Clutter

Like almost everyone else, you probably have plenty of things inside your apartment that are rarely if ever used. If so, getting rid of the clutter will instantly make your apartment feel much bigger.

When it comes to clutter, we may feel like because the items are organized, it isn’t cluttered. However, it still takes up a lot of space and thus should be removed.

If you aren’t certain whether or not something is needed, then consider if you use the item and if it brings you joy. If it doesn’t do either of those things, then it’s time to remove it from your apartment.

Should you have stuff you don’t want inside your apartment but still have a need for now and then, consider renting a storage unit for your extra stuff.

Multi-Use Furniture

For many who dwell in small apartments, having as much multi-use furniture around as possible is a great way to have more space.

For example, try having a bed with built-in storage drawers, since this may eliminate the need for a dresser. Also, buy an ottoman or couch that offers storage areas underneath the cushions.

Finally, add hanging storage fixtures to the back of a door or two, since this will let you store shoes, coats, and lots of other stuff. If you don’t have multiple rooms, you may also want to consider furniture that transforms from one room, like a bed, into another space, like an office.

For example, a murphy bed can turn your space from a bedroom into an office by hiding the bed in the wall.

Mirrors and Natural Light

Even if your apartment has a limited amount of natural light, you can still use this to your advantage by hanging plenty of mirrors and additional lighting around your apartment. Even in the smallest of apartments, mirrors make rooms seem bigger and also help to reflect natural light throughout the area.

If you don’t have a lot of natural light, consider using cool white or blue lights instead of soft yellow light. Before you know it, your apartment will feel quite cozy and much bigger.

Patterns and Colors

If you live in an apartment that has lighter colors on its walls and ceiling, these colors will always make your home feel much bigger than if everything is painted in darker colors.

If you can persuade your landlord to work with you on this project, see if you can add a pattern to the ceiling since this always gives a living space much more depth.

Though you may have a small apartment, that does not mean you always have to feel as if the walls are closing in on you day after day. By using some of these tricks, you may find you have a much bigger apartment than you realized.
