Modern houses need more and more space, regardless of how small the apartment is fundamentally, in fact we can also own a villa, however we will always look for more space so that it can be welcoming and, above all, comfortable.
In this article we want to focus your attention on small and medium-sized apartments, providing you with useful tips for a redistribution of spaces of each environment, which will give even the smallest home the comforts needed to live in harmony.
THE ENTRANCE: THE BUSINESS CARD OF EACH HOUSE
It is the first room you meet entering an apartment. For this reason, it needs special attention because it must be at the same time welcoming and functional for both the family and to receive any guests: it must therefore be used quickly and efficiently.
To get the most out of your entrance we recommend inserting a bench-container, comfortable to change shoes and useful to store items we do not need. The alternative to the bench are open shelving to place what is useful to contain. It’s important in our opinion to hang a mirror, so that it can reflect the rest of the house and provide more depth to the space.

THE KITCHEN: THE MOST LIVELY ENVIRONMENT IN THE HOUSE
The kitchen must necessarily be aimed at functionality, without losing sight of the possibility of being welcoming. It is possible to maximize the vertical system space, with shelving for the pantry, drawers for dry products, fresh food containers and utensils to be stored in the cupboards or shelves.
The most appropriate system to have a kitchen tidy and functional is certainly that of the thematic subdivision. We dedicate shelves, drawers and shelving vertically to the various types of food or tools.
THE LIVING ROOM: WHERE TO ENJOY CAREFREE MOMENTS
This is the room that most of all you have to lend to welcome guests and friends. Here too you can easily look for methods to optimize and make the most of spaces.
It will be useful to maximize the spaces through multifunctional furniture such as sofas, armchairs and poufs that are also containers, so you can accommodate not only blankets and pillows, but also accessories for TV, stereo or dvd players. If also tables and sideboards have the possibility of having drawers and shelves at the bottom, we can store not only dishes, cutlery, glasses, but also household linen.
THE BEDROOM: COMFORT AND FUNCTIONALITY
Every bedroom in the house should be a refuge from the world and everyday chaos, a place where you can relax in the evening and wake up in the morning serene and energetic. The bedroom optimization starts from the organization of closets which is well to be used properly.
Off-season clothing can be placed inside baskets or plastic containers to be inserted under the bed, so that in the closets we can set up space to separate clothes, accessories, shoes and more. The ideal would be to create a real walk-in closet so that you can organize in a functional way the space for clothing, shoes and blankets, quilts and sheets. The eds containers, then, are real space-saving, we can store the change of season or bed linen.
