Let’s face it: sometimes our living spaces aren’t as roomy as we’d like, and storage space is at a premium. Whether you’re living in a city apartment with a roommate or expecting a baby in a condo that suits two people, but might feel a little tight with three, it’s good to have a few strategies for maximizing your space. Check out some of our suggestions and see if you can clear up a bit of clutter and make the most of the space you have.
If you’re pressed for space, storage furniture is your new best friend! Beds with drawers underneath are very handy if you need somewhere to stash extra sheets and blankets, pajamas, or clothes and shoes. And, when you’re picking out your bed, see if you can find a pair of coordinating bedside tables with two or three drawers in them. In addition to having a place to set your reading lamp and alarm clock, you can store bedtime essentials like medicine, moisturizer, and lip balm where it’s easy to grab them. This is also a great place to keep books, your phone charger, and odds and ends that haven’t found a home.
Of course, if you’re living in an apartment where space is limited, it can be pretty difficult to find furniture that really works for your space. When you’re browsing stores and showrooms, it can feel like manufacturers have mostly forgotten about us city-dwellers, who need smaller pieces that fit easily through narrow halls and doorways. Fortunately, if you need special furniture services, New York offers helpful resources. For example, did you know that some experienced professionals are able to disassemble and reassemble furniture that’s too big to move in and out of your place in one piece? That’s right—they’ll carefully take it apart, move it out of your old place and into the new one, and expertly put it back together. Or, if you find a piece of furniture that fits into your space and offers the storage you need, but you aren’t crazy about the way it looks, you can work with a professional to redesign it.
City living is expensive, and if you’re anything like us, you’re always looking for an amazing deal. Another benefit of working with a provider of custom furniture services is the potential for major savings. Do you have a perfectly functional piece of furniture that adequately stores your stuff—but looks old and beat up? It will be a lot easier on your wallet to have it redesigned than to replace it with something brand new. Did you inherit a couple items, like a dresser and shelves, from a family member during a move—but just aren’t thrilled with them? An expert can help you to tweak them so that they’ll be just as at home in your place as you are.
You can have an organized, uncluttered, and beautiful space, even if you’re working with a one- or two-bedroom apartment or condo rather than a house. Let’s get creative together and see how we can combine elegance and function!
