    Use less oversized furniture. Get some patterns and colors going.

      For a living room, you need one sofa, a coffee table and a two arm chairs and maybe a couple of side tables and lamps for lighting. Don't go with "overstuffed" or over large pieces because they only ever really look "put together and elegant" in really large open spaces.


      Like other people noted: clean up and put things away. You should have a space for the ironing board to live when not in use. It should not be a catch all. Get rid of the day bed next to the larger bed.


      Bunk beds for the kids room. A wardrobe and bookshelf for each of them. Pare down the toy collection. If you get a new toy, two toys get donated to charity. Make keeping their room clean part of their chores - them helping you keep your home clean is part of the "family economy" that enables YOU to earn your living that helps keep them housed!


      You need to do a major sorting and getting rid of stuff before you even begin to decorate. As a former apartment dweller, keeping possessions under control, makes for a happier and more comfortable place to live.



  • Have you looked on Pinterest? First clean up and put everything away. Then start decorating.

    You MUST look for smaller sofa, table with eight built in storage OR one that can fit baskets underneath, ottoman that can be a chair also, floor cushions for kids to sit on instead of more bulky chairs, shelves!

    Apartment living won't tolerate a lot of big furniture. You need to do some furniture downsizing, and repositioning. It is also very quick to looking cluttered/messy requiring tidying up more often. And- better storage (bookshelves, cubby-shelves...) is key to apartment living. Your daughters room looks to have the best set up. It just needs some putting away of stuff ;-)

    If you can't afford new smaller furniture, check with consignment stores, sometimes they will do a trade if your furniture. You also apparently need more storage so you can put things away, the dollar store phase stackable plastic cubes you can spray paint them or if you like the colors use them as is. Add some under bed storage containers to hide things away. Now that you are organized, there are tons of removable wallpaper options or removable stick ins you can get to brighten up and personalize your walls. All this will make your apartment feel like home.

    Looks like too much furniture for that room. Can you move one of the chairs to another room?

    Big baskets and get the kids to clean up or have a yard sale - motivation. {I did this - get a few dollars towards Christmas!]

    Fold up extra towels and blankets and put them under the couch cushions.

  • Rose Middleton Rose Middleton on Sep 01, 2018

    Put half the kids toys in storage, They'll forget about them and when you bring them out 6 months later, it will be like Christmas!

  • Ohiorn Ohiorn on Sep 01, 2018

    Go room by room and make 3 piles-pitch/donate/keep. Kids especially tire of certain toys quickly. Furniture that does double duty-end table with storage, etc.

    Well, If I were you, In the living room - I would put the sofa and loveseat across from each other, and put the two chairs near the large window. It's difficult to see the entire room. If you could put a small table between the two chairs, that would be ideal.


    In your daughter's room - It looks like there are good storage options, but too much stuff to fit. Otherwise, it looks like you have the stuffed animals in the shelving unit. That's the best spot for oversized items. Smaller things just need to be organized by type, and you might try labels, or photos on the cubbies, so your daughter knows where to put things.


    Master bedroom - I can't see enough of the room. Possibly more storage options, and if you can get some artwork at a thrift store, that would help all three of the rooms. Good luck!

    you have way too much stuff. leave one couch and the table in the front may be an arm chair, yo daughter needs to spend a day donating a lot of her stuff. Choose larger storage instead of alot of smaller containers. In your room maybe you could place one of the chairs from the front for a little reading area but keep it clean. Less stuff will give you more space, time (searching for items) and you will feel more relaxed in your home.

    Agree - you have too many things. Go through EVERYTHING and PURGE. Even the kids toys. You'll be surprised at how much room it will free up. Good Luck

  • Liliana Wells Liliana Wells on Sep 17, 2018

    Before you buy anything else, declutter. This may seem daunting with all the stuff you have. An easy way to approach the project is to make three piles (one room at a time). One pile for things to throw out, one to donate and one for stuff you absolutely have to keep. I like the idea of another contributor, if, for example, you buy one toy for your daughter, throw away or donate two. The same with the rest of the house. The furniture is way too big for the space you have available. Good luck.

    One thing that may help with teaching organization to children is to help them learn to categorize their toys. They make a master list. Then come up with a theme. We chose a Disney theme. The children designed labels for the storage cubes and put the labels with the names of the categories on theme e.g. musical instruments etc. then they placed the items in. They were so proud of their neat room that they now put things up after playing, because as they said “ we worked too hard to get this place cleaned up and we are not going through that again.” Hahaha. It taught them so much and allowed their creativity. Also frame their favorite artwork and use that to decorate. Hope some of this helps.
