- Say Goodbye to Your Clutter
- Get Creative When Arranging the Space
- Don’t Let the Walls Go to Waste
- Choose Multi-Function Furniture
- Embrace the Versatility of Storage Bins
First and foremost, it is important to come to terms with the fact that you are going to have to let go of your clutter. Get rid of everything you do not need. Even if items that have sentimental value should be put into storage until you have more space. The key here is to keep your apartment full of only what you actually need.
It may be that there is more room than you thought. Move around your furniture, try unusual arrangements, and keep an open mind. You may find that when everything is arranged just so, the space feels brighter and roomier.
Don’t limit your storage solutions to the floor – consider the walls too. You can install shelves, racks, or hooks to make it easy to keep things organized while also essentially adding space. Just make sure you check with your landlord before adding too many nails or screws to the walls.
You know you want to choose smaller furniture that will fit in the space you have available but don’t forget to also focus on finding multi-function furniture. For example, a long ottoman is great for extra seating and you can open it up to storage extra sheets and blankets.
Storage bins are essential to keep everything organized in your small space. The fact that they’re stackable makes them an even better choice for small spaces. Storage bins can be stored under your bad, stacked in the closet, or in your storage unit.
