For a tenant, moving into a new apartment can present several challenges. One of the challenges might be living in a smaller space than one might be used to. However, there are a number of techniques people can use to maximize the available space in a small room as well as make the room appear more spacious.
For example, it’s often a good idea to scale furniture to the relative size of the room. Smaller pieces of furniture can make the room appear more spacious than larger pieces of furniture might. Additionally, plan your layout of the room so that everything has a designated spot. This helps prevent clutter, which can make the room seem cramped and messy.
One thing that can help with avoiding clutter is to choose pieces of furniture that have more than one purpose. For example, some ottomans include storage space that can provide a home for a number of items. Finally, try to take advantage of vertical space, such as by using wall shelves. They provide additional storage space without taking up much room.
