There are many tips and tricks that can help you achieve this goal—keep reading to discover how you can make the most of your Ewa Beach apartment space.

Utilize “Wasted” Space

Corners, entryways, and doorsteps are often under-utilized spaces in the home. There are many ways to make use of oddly-shaped or “wasted” spaces in your apartment—all it takes is a little creativity. Maximize corner space by arranging square or rectangular furniture at an angle, then placing a tall lamp or specially-designed corner shelves in the remaining space. Another common “wasted” space is your walls—hang a series of shelves or bulletin boards to take advantage of this valuable surface. Hang hooks or use a hat stand in your entryway to provide a space for coats, hats, leashes, keys, and other objects, rather than piling them inside the door. Finally, consider placing a small chair and table beside your front door to take advantage of Hawaii’s warm and wonderful outdoor weather.

Use Your Doors

Doors are another area that represents space you can add to your apartment. Over-the-door baskets, hangers, or organizers create added storage for a variety of items ranging from shoes and books to toiletries and cleaning supplies. Get creative with your doors by hanging bulletin boards to keep important papers in your line of sight without creating clutter on flat surfaces. Chalkboards and dry erase boards are another great way to utilize your doors and provide a convenient way for family members to communicate at any time. Magnetic boards can be hung on the back of pantry doors to create a convenient storage space for spices or other small items—simply attach magnets to your spice jars to get them off your pantry shelves and clear out space for other food items.

Purchase Multifunctional Furniture

Furniture that is able to pull double duty is a great way to maximize space in your apartment. Choose a bed frame that features drawer space beneath the mattress or a bookshelf in the headboard. Coffee tables with built-in display cases allow you to show off a collection without taking up precious shelf space. Hollow ottomans and stools provide a convenient place to store DVDs, gaming accessories, or other items out of sight but within easy reach. Other great space-saving furniture options include nesting tables, folding chairs, and secretary desks, all of which can be stored in small spaces and utilized only when the need arises.
