Simple Ways to Create More Space in Your Apartment

Posted On: Monday, March 30th, 2015

Some apartments are open and spacious, while others are small and cozy. Either way, it’s difficult to know how to make the most of your space. Here are some tips and tricks to help you create the perfect atmosphere for your apartment.

Double your storage space. By using furniture that doubles as storage, you can spend less money and have more space. Ottomans with removable tops can be used to prop your feet up after a long day, and can also hold all your books and magazines next to the couch! Coffee tables with shelves and desks with built-in drawers and cubbies along the sides also really help to add to storage space.

Winter is in full swing in Connecticut, and during this time of year there’s nothing better than stepping into a warm, cozy apartment. However, it’s important to practice safety when heating your residence. Here are several ways you can stay warm, healthy and happy throughout the winter season.

Prevent pipes from freezing. When temperatures drop below freezing, it’s important to keep water flowing through the pipes. Periodically flush your toilets during the day, and leave your kitchen and bathroom taps on a thin trickle of water throughout the night.
