9 Storage Ideas For Small Spaces
We seem to require more square footage for items, which becomes more problematic when your living situation isn’t as spacious as you want it to be. Even if your apartment is small, you can make it appear elegant by maximizing storage space with the solutions we’ve compiled exclusively for you. Here are 9 small-space storage ideas that will make you the person whose house everyone is talking about.
Complementary closet space
A lot of space is left unused for fear of making the living room look fuller. An easy way to tackle this is by adding baskets in shelves to go with your walls. These baskets could be used as your drop zones, which puts similar items together, customized for different family members, and yet stay classic. In addition to baskets, introducing hooks is one of the best storage ideas for small apartments that boost your aesthetic, doubles for décor, and gives storage to put your everyday use items like keys, purses, and hats when not in use.
Veiled storage To maximize space in small apartments, you need to utilize old furniture tricks. Upgrade your house with ottomans, tufted benches, that cover for extra seating while hoarding your treasure trove of footwear. Keeping things cloaked and covered can often create a cleaner view.
Bolster storage efficiency
Revamp existing shelves by adding hanging shelves inside closed cabinets. Another storage idea for small kitchens is an additional notched-back shelf where you can put glass canisters to hold oft-used items. Make full use of the walls by nailing in end-to-end attractive shelves.
Every corner counts
Shelves that are short in length but span walls or windows are the wisest storage idea for small bathrooms with narrow lengths of walls. Add shelves above the headboard in a compact bedroom but leave plenty of space between them to keep things looking orderly. Another way to utilize corners is by adding rolling shelves behind the bathroom mirror or beside the refrigerator. Since these are open storage, they do not need clearance space for doors.
The floor is lava
The first rule of thumb is to stay away from the floor. Cube mounting, basket addition, and mesh shelving are smart storage solutions. Some storage ideas for a small bedroom include a wall lamp that creates space for a bedside table for books and glasses. If you’re a plant lover, buy pots or hanging pots to keep your floor free and clean.
Prune your furniture
To maximize space in a studio apartment, the big furniture needs to go. Replace them with scaled-down pieces while still maintaining good taste. Go for a shower caddy to store your shower accessories in place of big cabinets.
Utilize vertical space
An ingenious way of making more room in tight spots is using vertical spaces such as behind or over the door. Hang thin wired baskets and place toiletries, gift wrappers, not-so-commonly-used stationery, all in plain sight so you don’t have to go digging in baskets. Hanging an over-the-door laundry bag keeps your dirty clothes off the floor in a pile.
Compartmentalize smaller items
Items of jewelry, stationery, or office supplies come in various shapes and sizes. Having to compartmentalize them takes up a lot of valuable shelf space, even with cutlery like spoons and forks. The solution is to use pegboards, or a magnetic board to hang the object easily, making it accessible and the desk jumble free.
Practicing minimalism, getting rid of or replacing items once worn-out aids in keeping the apartment ever fresh and in style. We believe these 9 tips accentuate your ‘House’ to become the ‘Home’ that you dream of.
