How to make the most of the space in my apartment?
First, remove clutter and keep everything clean
The fundamental thing in this case will always be order and cleanliness. Since you move, remember to have only what you need and organize it in the best way according to your lifestyle. If you find that you are not using an item much after several days or weeks, allow yourself to reconsider whether you should have it or, at the very least, relocate it. Regarding cleaning, we recommend defining a day of the week in which to thoroughly clean your apartment. This will give you peace of mind and you will look great in front of your guests.
Multifunctional objects: your best allies
The more practical the objects in your apartment, the better. Instead of a traditional bed, opt for a bed with drawers underneath; if you have a nightstand, with drawers; if you like to receive many guests, that your table is expandable. The key is to be creative, always ask yourself if the objects you have in your apartment can have more uses.
Create new storage spaces
Here we take creativity to another level, a more fun level! Always keep in mind that where there is space, there is an opportunity to save something. With that mindset you can discover various and new ways of storage. For example, you can place small shelves inside the doors of your bakery to store silverware and spices. You can also do a lot with the walls; just put some hooks and you can hang your clothes and everything you bring when you come back from the street. You can do something similar with the magnets in your refrigerator, so you can hang aprons, dryers, recipes, etc.
Generate a feeling of spaciousness through color
When choosing the color of your walls, make sure that it reflects your personality and also encourages a feeling of more space. If you like dark colors, remember that they absorb light and using them will make your apartment look smaller than it is and can even create a feeling of claustrophobia. But it is also not necessary to go to the other extreme and paint everything white. Try to find a color in the middle, there are a wide variety of light colors that you can choose from that will connect with your style. Warning: this tip not only applies to your walls, but also to furniture, curtains, etc. Everything influences.
