Regardless of the size of your home, proper use of storage can make all the difference. Below are some tips to help you cut down on clutter by making the most of the storage space in your apartment.
1. Find decorative storage options.
One of the best ways to make your apartment feel more spacious is to hide as many items in storage as possible. However, when you need these items to remain accessible, packing them in boxes and putting them away aren’t options. Instead, seek out decorative storage options that allow you to keep your belongings nearby without putting them out in plain sight. Examples include storage ottomans and decorative bins.
2. Make use of wall space.
Another way to store more items in your apartment is to make good use of your wall space. Hang shelving to keep knick-knacks and other such items off tables. Hanging shelves can also eliminate your need for certain pieces of furniture, such as bookcases.
3. Use a pegboard for pots and pans.
If you have limited cabinet space in your kitchen, putting away all of your cookware and pantry items can be a struggle. You can free up some cabinet space by hanging a pegboard and using it to store your pots and pans on the wall.
4. Use furniture to add storage space in your bathroom.
Many apartment bathrooms lack ample storage space for towels, toilet paper, and other items you may need to keep in this space. Consider adding furniture designed especially for bathroom storage to this room to give yourself more options. Examples include small cabinets and structures designed to sit above your toilet.
5. Make use of space behind doors.
Plenty of hanging storage options are available to make use of the space behind your closet, bedroom and bathroom doors. You can use these solutions to store everything from shoes to medications.
