How to organize a small apartment

For family group, small apartments are the best. These apartments are easy to maintain, as the rooms are very few in number.However, since the floor space is very much limited so sometimes it becomes a bit tricky to organize such small apartments. So one way is to make use of the vertical space. Let us take a tour of the main rooms and deicide on organizing each one. Consider the living room. Here the floor space might allow you only to keep the sofa and the centre table. If you try adding more things, the room will become congested. Now question arises where to keep the decorating pieces like statues, pots etc. So, for this, buy a wall fix showcase. You will get showcases made of various materials like wood, glass. Showcases come in a variety of designs and style. A perfectly chosen one can itself add to the beauty of your living room. Moreover, you can use bookcases to keep Cds and DVDs, cabinets, shelves to store other decorative items.

Now let’s talk about the master bedroom. Place a double bed and the room seems already full. In the leftover space, you can hardly manage almirah, dressing table and the corner tables. Where are you going to keep your quilt? Don’t panic get a wall fixed queen size quilt showcase. You can also keep other things like bed sheets, unused pillows and the like in the remaining space.

For organizing, your kid’s not much furniture is needed. Only the bed, a small almirah and a study table will do. Go for a bookcase for his books.

Nowadays the concept of modular kitchen has come into existence. These kitchens are the best when the space is limited. Make proper use of the cabinets. Dumping things into these cabinets won’t just do. Arrange the things properly so that every single space can be used up.Use hanging racks for storing the utensils. This will free the cabinets for storing other items like containers,

It doesn’t matter whether the apartment is a big one or a small one. What matters are your ideas. If you have a creative mind, I am sure you will be very easily be able to use up the limited space.  Just take a small example a small covered shoe rack made of wood with a decorative flowerpot placed on the top looks far better than a large open shoe rack.
