Darren's Usable Space
Location:New York, New York
What I Love About My Home
It's a small space, but the ceilings are high and the square footage is all usable. I'm constantly resisting buying more furniture because it could get very cluttered very quickly by overloading it with more stuff. This all gives the whole place a more spacious feeling and makes the layout perfect for both entertaining and working.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Correcting and making better use of architectural flaws is always a challenge. Concealing the heating and A/C units while creating more usable storage and display space was a priority. One of the things that was always frustrating was to constantly trip over shoes that I leave everywhere. Sneakers, work shoes, boots in the winter and flip flops in the summer. In this apartment, there were a lot of nooks that allowed for perfect inconspicuous storage... and every inch is now used to hide clutter. So now the lines of the apartment are much cleaner, plus there are lots of places to put shoes after work!
