Organizing your life in a few square feet can be challenging, but implementing a few apartment storage ideas can significantly improve your quality of life. After years of experience in the apartment industry, we’ve gathered our best tips and ideas for organizing and storing your things in a rental apartment.
How to Organize an Apartment
When you live in an apartment, making furniture choices that maximize your storage options is a good idea. Think of couches, ottomans, or chairs with hidden storage compartments, or get creative in repurposing furniture that will give you more storage space. For example, you can use a dresser or credenza as a media console and get the most out of your living area.
Vertical storage is also one of the best ways to maximize space in a small studio or one-bedroom apartment. You can take up as much vertical space as possible with tall bookshelves or aesthetically arranged shelves and hooks as a display/storage solution.
You could also consider under-bed storage, as this space often goes unused. Most people won’t see it, so it’s the perfect place for storage that minimizes clutter in your apartment.
Small baskets and boxes are another great way to organize your apartment. They serve as closed storage that keeps your apartment looking extra tidy and can add to the decor and feel of the apartment. Try placing color-coordinated baskets on top of a cabinet, shelf, or in your pantry to maximize the area and make storing items look neat, intentional, and orderly.
