How to Maxmize Space in Your Tiny Apartment

Spring might be months away, but getting a jump start on that spring cleaning and organizing has never been so easy. Besides with the holidays right around the corner, and family coming to visit, you probably need to find a way to store your things that isn’t piling everything in the closet and hoping no one opens it. Even if you’re a bit tight on space, you have options, we promise!

  1. Don’t let that doorway go to waste. Using the space over your door way is a very out of the way place to store those things you don’t really need to keep hidden.

  2. Speaking of putting things up high, you’ve got high ceilings for a reason, so use it. Placing shelving right up to the ceiling not only gives you loads more space to organize things, it makes sure you are actually using every square inch of space you’ve got!

  3. For those things you really need to hide, a curtain goes a long way. Hang a curtain or an awesome textile fabric in front of some shelving, or even as an alternative to a closet door. This way you don’t need to organize absolutely everything, but your place will still look fabulous.

  4. Still need to hide some things? Think about double duty furniture like an ottoman that opens to store things or even a bar table that allows you to stash glasses in it.

  5. When all else fails, work smarter not harder, especially when organizing. A great space to start is the kitchen. Are you really using all of your cabinet space? Stack your kitchen essentials more intelligently by splitting each interior cabinet shelf into two with a device like this one.
