How to maximize your Beacon Hill apartment

How to maximize your Beacon Hill apartment, when you live in a Beacon Hill condo rental or loft in the Downtown Boston area, you are immersed in the vibrant energy of the city and close to all of the action. However, some aspects of urban living aren’t as easy to live with. For instance, space is a commodity in short supply in Beacon Hill condos, making it a slight challenge to position all of your furniture and finding a place to store your gift wrapping paper.

Whether you recently moved into a new Beacon Hill apartment you’re thinking about moving on a condo for rent in Midtown Boston, learn how you can make the most of a smaller, urban space. By following a few practical tips, you can improve your day-to-day life in your beautiful downtown loft or condo.

Choose Multi-Purpose Furnishings 

Each piece of furniture in your Beacon Hill condo rental or loft should be carefully chosen based on style as well as function. Many items can serve multiple purposes, and this allows you to maximize space. For example, a coffee table, ottoman or entertainment cabinet may all have concealed storage items that you can put to excellent use. Captain’s beds (beds with pull-out drawers underneath) are also another dual-purpose furnishing that can allow you to maximize space in the bedroom.

Think About Floor-to-Ceiling Solutions

Floor space may indeed be limited in a Beacon Hill condo or apartment, but you may have more space available than you might think. Think about how you can invest in floor to ceiling furnishings and organizational features to maximize the space available. For example, rather than place a floor-standing cabinet near your breakfast or dining table, choose a cabinet that hangs on the wall. This will give you the same amount of space without taking up valuable floor space.

Invest in the Right Organizational Features

Investing in organizational features is a must when you live in a small space. First, clear out any clutter and make sure you are only investing in organizational features for items that you truly need in your Beacon Hill home. Then, consider the amount of space you have in cabinets, closets and even under your bed to store these items. Choosing the right organizational features for the space you have available and for the items that you need to store is important.

It can take some time to get your Beacon Hill condo to rent in perfect living condition. However, with some time and effort along with the investment of the right furnishings and organizational solutions, you can most easily maximize the space available.
