It's amazing what a few inches can do. We recently moved our couch forward, allowing more room for our dining table, and got rid of a side table (as much as it pained me). These simple actions opened up our dining area to far more use, and the apartment feels bigger and better for it. Are there a few things in Your apartment you could do without? A few pieces that could be moved to allow for a more usable space? It's worth it to find out.
