How to Maximize Your Apartment Space

If you're furnishing your own space, opt for timeless styles on big purchases. You can always dress up a classic sofa with trendy blankets and throw pillows.

Apartments often have limited storage, so look for furniture that doubles as storage space to help reduce clutter. For instance, some sofas or ottomans have hidden compartments.

Don't be afraid to ask if you can paint the walls in your apartment—it can go a long way toward making the space feel like home.

Rugs and curtains go a long way toward making a living space feel more welcoming and cozy.
