5 Simple Ways to Save Space If You Live in a Small Apartment, Condo Unit

Floating shelves are always a good idea.


Does your small space feel confining? Sometimes, a bit of redecorating is all you need to make your humble abode feel a lot more spacious. Here are some space-saving tricks we learned from tiny apartments from around the world: 

1. Opt for hanging lights and bedside tables! 

Utilize your wall to save a lot of floor space. 


2. Make your living space appear bigger than it actually is by incorporating a floor-length mirror.

As they reflect both natural and artificial light, mirrors can also help brighten up a room. 


3. Utilize the space above your kitchen island. 

4. Got no room for a vanity table? Set up a hanging mirror with a floating shelf, where you can store your go-to jewelry and makeup. 

This space-saving hack is perfect for those who are always on the go. 


5. If you live in a studio unit, cleverly separate your living room from your bedroom with a tall shelf so you can have more storage space!
