5 Tips to Stretch Out your Apartment's Space

It may have once been the Australian dream to own a three bedroom house with a large yard, but in today's Brisbane we see a greater volume of people seeking the #apartmentlife for its close proximity to the city and facilities. But are we giving up space for the added convenience? Not necessarily. Here we provide some unique tips to help apartments feel more spacious.

1. Carve out zones.

Creating zones can help make your living space feel less like one room. Separate zones with small tables, curtains, bookshelves, mats or furniture. This can help separate leisure areas from work areas – no more study in your lounge area. It can also create more flow in the space, which comes in handy when you have guests.

2. Invest in transforming pieces

Pieces that can be useful for multiple reasons can save a bunch of space. Some options that can maximise the usefulness of your space might be include a table that can double as a desk, an ottoman that has secret storage or a couch that doubles as a spare bed.

3. Consider size a shape

Consider how you plan to use a space and what shapes fit that purpose best. When buying items such as coffee tables, it can be more rewarding to have two small round tables rather than a large rectangle piece. This way you can move the room around more easily if more space is needed. In other spaces, like your bedroom, fewer but bigger furnishings work better in making the space feel grander.

4. Sunlight and reflections

Mirrors are you friend thanks to their ability to add light, space and d├ęcor all at once. Utilising the all mighty natural resource that is the sun’s rays can also really open up a space. Together, these can create a room that holds the ultimate equilibrium of space and snugness.

5. Think vertically

While not necessarily going to make your space feel larger, plants can bring a sense of calmness and liveliness to a space. When you use a vertical garden, there’s also more potential to personalise you walls.
