Most apartments aren’t known for their abundance of closets and storage space. Unfortunately, that means that you are probably in need of some creative storage solutions to keep all of the things you use in your day-to-day (and not so day-to-day) life. Today, our storage experts take a look at some of the ways you can create some storage solutions in your apartment and how to make the most out of the space you have.
Furniture is a necessity when you have an apartment. With a bit of research and careful planning, you can find furniture that has storage built in. Benches and ottomans are common pieces of furniture that have built in storage, but there are more and more options available every day. If you are looking for a project to work on, look into building a coffee table with storage or even a bed! It could be a fun project to sink your teeth into that will also provide practical storage solutions.
Another storage solution for your apartment is making the absolute most out of the closet space you do have. Consider purchasing a tension rod to place in the bottom half of your closet to double the hanging space for your clothes. Over the door shoe racks are a great way to make room in your closet and keep your shoes organized. You can also purchase hangers that let you cascade them, or you can look up a DIY version that may be a bit cheaper.
Probably one of the easiest storage solutions you can do when you live in an apartment is to get rid of some of the stuff you have. After living in your space for a while, you’ll soon realize the things that you use regularly and the things that just sit in a box or a closet collecting dust. It can feel difficult to get rid of a lot of stuff, but it definitely saves some of the hassle of coming up with a bunch of other storage solutions for items that you don’t truly need.
