Embracing the space you have in your apartment is a wonderful way to make your apartment feel more like home. At times, this can be a daunting task when looking at all of the things that you’ve accumulated over the years. Luckily, there are plenty of ways at East Bay Apartment Homes to utilize your storage spaces that not only are space-saving solutions, but are aesthetically pleasing to your liking!
Make Use of Wall Space
We can find ourselves trying to save space where we can in our closets, bedrooms and any area that is open for storage. However, one way to make the most out of your space is to make use of all the wall space you have in your home. This is a clever way to provide your home with space-saving solutions that don’t break your bank. Consider utilizing box or flat shelving for items that can be stored using your wall space. Hang hooks to display jewelry or hats, or even hang organizational baskets to keep papers organized and in sight.
Decluttering is King
It’s true about the saying “tidy house, tidy mind”! Decluttering your home is an easy way to make the most out of your storage spaces. Remove any papers, clothing, old furniture, kitchenware and just about anything else you no longer use. Decluttering your home is one way to help you do more with your space, and it costs absolutely nothing to achieve! While it may be a daunting task, we can guarantee that you and your home will feel much better!
Rearrange Your Furniture
Furniture can take up a lot of space. However, we know that you need it to enjoy daily life in your apartment! Try moving and arranging furniture to your liking that can create more space for you to use. Try creating easily navigable floor plans that create paths for heavy foot traffic. While arranging, you may realize you no longer need a piece of furniture. Use that to your advantage! Furniture makes your space feel more like home, so take the time to celebrate the beautiful new living space you’ve designed!
Invest in Multifunctional Furniture
Along with a newly arranged and designed space for your furniture, investing in multifunctional furniture can benefit you in more ways than one. You simply have to think smart with your furniture choices. Consider investing in a bookshelf that offers a foldable table to use as a desk, or even a convertible couch that can fold out to a bed for guests to stay. There are plenty of side tables on the market that offer multifunctional storage space underneath their primary use. You can even include a lift-up coffee table that includes extra storage underneath. The possibilities are endless when it comes to furniture that can meet your specific needs!
Utilize Cabinet & Closet Organizers
Utilizing cabinet and closet organizers is probably the most popular option for figuring out ways to find more storage space in your home. While hanging rods are of primary use, oftentimes space underneath gets underutilized. Try adding some drawers underneath your hanging clothing to add more options for you to store clothing. Stock up on fabric storage bins for miscellaneous items that need a home. Instead of storing your shoes on the floor of your closet, add a tiered shoe rack to organize and add space to your closet. Cabinets can get messy quickly, so add cabinet organizers to keep items in place for when you need them. It is also great to consider shelf maximizers to use the entirety of your cabinet storage.
