Value City Furniture Designer Tip #1: Use Space Cleverly
Interior designer Ricky Gonzalez suggests maximizing your space with bookshelves, tables or ottomans with hidden storage, and furniture customized to your needs. He also recommends adding flair to your walls with art or lighting, so you don’t lose valuable square footage. Mirrors are especially great for apartments because they add depth and make the room look bigger.

Value City Furniture Designer Tip #3: Remember to Edit
According to interior designer Jeff Blasi, you don’t have to display everything you own. If you don’t adore it, or you don’t need it, get rid of it. This leaves room for a great statement or focal piece. While it may seem strange, styling an apartment with just a few large-scale pieces–rather than a ton of mini furnishings–can actually make your room feel more spacious.
Value City Furniture Designer Tip #4: Make Every Piece Count
Interior designer Bethany Stimely suggests choosing furnishings that offer maximum functionality–like recliners and storage ottomans. If your apartment has recessed nooks, use that corner for storage. If you can find the right-sized desk or dresser, the nook will transform from waste of space to ultimate storage solution!
