Storage Solutions For Small Living Spaces

If you live in a small home or apartment, and you are having difficulty making all of your items fit inside your space in a way where it appears presentable, consider cracking down and researching storage solutions to aid in your endeavor. Here are a few tips to help you declutter and organize your belongings so you can enjoy your space to the fullest.

Utilize All Areas Out Of View 

Spots where people cannot view items, such as underneath beds, inside dresser drawers, or within cabinets can be extremely useful locations for storage. To make the process easier, invest in organizing units including cubby holes or shelves to separate items so they are easier to find when you need them. These areas are usually best at holding smaller items as there is usually limited space available. If you intend on storing clothing in a non-visible spot in your home, consider placing them inside plastic storage bags that work with a vacuum sealing unit. This will shrink down the amount of space necessary for the pieces so you can stack them if necessary.

Use Shelves To Help With Storage

The walls in your home are often overlooked as an area that can be used for storage. Place several shelves upon walls in rooms to help keep items off the floor level. Cleared floors will increase the amount of space you have to walk around, and helps to make rooms appear larger. Place knickknacks, books, light fixtures, photographs, and other mementos on the shelves so you have plenty of pleasing items to view as you walk through the rooms with wall shelves. Shelving works well in bathrooms for the holding of towels, soap, and toothbrushes. Placing these items on shelves frees up your sink top so it does not appear cluttered.

Use Multi-Purpose Furniture

Furniture that doubles as storage space can greatly reduce the amount of clutter in your home. Purchase an ottoman with a removable lid to contain movies, books, games, or other living room necessities. By a coffee table with shelves, drawers, or cabinets in the base to hold candles, reading material, and other items you use often. Instead of using a box spring with your mattress, place it upon a wooden base with drawers to contain your clothing. Instead of using a free-standing sink in your bathroom, purchase one that sets inside of a cabinet complete with doors to hide items inside.
