It can be tempting to panic when you move ibnto a new apartment. how will you find spacer for everything? If you're lucky, you'll already have space-saving amenities like the ones at Camelot Place Apartments in Saginaw. But in case you don't, here are some quick tips to make sure every space is used to your advantage!

#1: Go Vertical

Buying tall furniture pieces has quite a few benefits. First, they draw up the eye up, which makes your space feel taller. Second, they take up less floor space because all of their bulk is going up instead of across. Finally, a taller piece often means more storage space. That makes tall things winners all around! Here are a few examples:

Floor lamp with shelves

#2: Reflect on Things

Mirrors can play tricks on the eyes, and they do that very well in smaller places. Adding a mirror reflects space and gives the illusion of more room. You can use mirrors as-is or you can get creative and make a collage of mirrors. Pro tip! Place your mirror in a place where it all reflect something neutral or open, like a hallway or cream sofa. If you reflect a fuller space, the mirror may not work as well and just make things look more crowded. Here are a some mirrors to consider:
Rustic rectangular mirror
Hexagonal mirror set
Assymetrical wavy-edge mirror

This is fun trick you can do with clever furniture choices. If you choose furniture with long, straight legs, you do two tricks at once. First, you add the illusoin of more height by keeping a strong vertical line. Second, you keep more of the floor visible, so your room looks less full and/or cluttered. these slender lines can be used with your couch legs, desk, and chairs. Here are some ideas:
Retro-style loveseat with golden legs
Mid-century modern desk
Swivel accent chair with faux leather
