Living in a Small Apartment
Living in a small apartment means making every square foot count. You don’t have to feel cramped just because your home is smaller than you’d like! Here are some tips on how to maximize the space inside your home:
Vertical racks can help prevent cluttered areas in your apartment. You can use over-the-door shoe organizers in your closet or wire kitchen door and wall racks to hold your necessities. This is a handy investment that will keep you from stacking boxes in your closet, under your bed, or out in the open in your apartment. They can be used for your holiday gift wrap, spices in your pantry, crafting supplies, etc.
Choose a bed that can serve multiple purposes. Storage beds are great for both sleeping and storing clothes, with drawers located beneath the bed. Another great option for functionality is a sofa bed, which doubles as a couch and a bed. If you tend to have guests over frequently but have little sitting space, this is a good choice.
Organizers, Bins, Baskets
Utilize drawer organizers, cabinet organizers, under the sink organizers, etc. You can use clear, plastic bins for storage in places that won’t be seen and decorative baskets for stylish storage for blankets or magazines in your living spaces. You could place them in your entryway, closets, laundry room, and bedrooms.
Wall-mounted shelves can be used in many places for many things. For example, place them in your kitchen to hold dinnerware, in your room to display decorations, in a bathroom to hold toiletries, or in a living room to hold books and movies. This helps to keep floor and table/counter space free.
We all drop our belongs on the floor every once in a while after a long day, rather than putting them where they belong. Place wall hooks in strategic places to keep this from happening and free up some extra floor space. Try places like your laundry room, bathroom, entryway, and closets. They can be used to hold coats, hats, umbrellas, keys, towels, pet leashes, and more.
