Small Space Solutions for Chicago Real Estate Buyers If you’re looking to buy real estate in Chicago, be advised that it’s a competitive market. With the city’s huge population of nearly 3 million people (CityFacts), Chicago real estate tends to fly off the market quickly. Fortunately, having an experienced Chicago realtor on your side can help you find and secure your ideal real estate property quickly. Whether you’re looking for a Chicago condo, home, or townhouse, you’ll probably want to make yourself aware of some tips for furnishing and decorating small spaces.

Opt for Multipurpose Furniture

To maximize space in your Chicago condo or home, consider investing in furniture that serves more than one purpose. For example, rather than purchasing a separate bookshelf that will take up additional floor space, get a bed headboard with built-in shelving. Also, consider placing beds on risers so that you can utilize the space underneath for additional storage.

Be Mindful of Furniture Setup

When it comes to furniture in a small space, less is more. Consider the purpose of the room, take careful measurements, and furnish appropriately. While a large sectional sofa with reclining seats may seem appealing, a small living room may be better suited for a simple loveseat and a couple of comfortable chairs. In the event that you need more seating for a get-together at your place, keep some stylish folding chairs in a storage closet; you can break them out when you need them and save space when you don’t.

There are plenty of ways to go about maximizing space, even in the smallest of homes. To find out more about Chicago real estate contact us today and we’d be happy to assist you.
