4 Tips for Maximizing Space in a One-Bedroom Apartment, Fairbanks, Alaska

One-bedroom apartments are ideal for singles and young couples who are just getting started, but they can be a little too cozy—especially if your hobbies take up a lot of space. Fortunately, the right furniture and a few simple tricks can make any apartment seem roomier and more comfortable. Below are a few tips for maximizing the space in your one-bedroom apartment.

4 Tips for Getting the Most Out of a One-Bedroom Apartment

1. Use Multifunctional Furniture

one bedroom apartmentWhenever space is a factor, opt for furniture with more than one function. For instance, a sleeper sofa will give you space for guests, and using trunks instead of end tables maximizes your storage. This is especially important if your apartment doesn’t have enough space for extra blankets, winter clothes, and other bulky items.

2. Designate Areas for Specific Tasks

Rearranging your apartment every time you want to exercise or work on a craft project can be frustrating, making your apartment feel smaller than it is. Instead, consider designating corners of different rooms for specific uses, like working out, working, or watching TV.

3. Think Vertically

In smaller one-bedroom apartments, storage space is usually at a premium, but you can give yourself more room by thinking vertically. When shopping for bookshelves or wall units, choose pieces that stretch up to the ceiling. Not only can tall shelves minimize clutter, but they can also be more visually interesting.

4. Hang Large Items on the Walls

Bikes and other large items take up a lot of real estate, especially in smaller apartments with limited space. If your landlord allows it, consider hanging bulky belongings on the wall or from the ceiling so they are out of the way but still easily accessible.
