You may be tempted to take the easy way out and simply throw everything out, but stuff, some of it at least, is important to keep.
Finding extra storage space used to be nothing short of a miracle, but luckily storage ideas for smaller spaces are in greater supply than ever.
Organizing a small space can be tough, but with a little pre-planning and the following tips, you’ll be on your way to having a clutter-free, clean apartment.
The best way to increase storage space but also keep it hidden is to use furniture that has built-in drawers and cubbies.
Things like storage ottomans, coffee tables with drawers, and mirrors with shelving hidden behind the glass will help reduce the clutter without adding more furniture.
Every home has that one bare corner no one really pays attention to and forgets it exists.
This camouflaged area is the perfect place to add corner storage without taking up any precious space. Depending on the amount of storage needed and the space you have available, you can add short shelves or mount hooks on the wall.
Consider getting a bench with built-in cubbies and placing it beneath the hooks on the wall. Not only will you have increased storage space, but you’ll have additional space to sit as well.
One of the simplest and most creative ways to add storage space is to expand up.
Whether it’s in your closet, kitchen, or bedroom, using the walls to store your belongings is an effective way to keep things off of the floor but still within reaching distance. When organizing the shelves, try placing the items you use the most at the front and push back the things you don’t use daily.
If your shelves reach all the way to the ceiling, be sure to place all the necessary items at eye level and everything else you don’t need on the higher shelves.
No matter how big or small your closet is, a lack of organization will make everything messy and hard to find.
To make your closet more efficient to use, install cubby organizers, which can be used with or without baskets to house socks, sheets, folded clothes, shoes, and anything else you need put away.
There is no such thing as having enough hanging space, but with the help of over-the-door hooks, you’ll get the most out of your closet as possible.
Moving from one home to another, while exciting, means you'll have to reorganize and plan out storage spaces to fit the new layout and your belongings.
