Increase Your Apartment Space with Organization

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 19, 2011
In small spaces, clutter can seem twice as overwhelming. Small appliances, piles of clothes and rows of toiletries may appear endless, when they’re really quite manageable with a few space-saving storage solutions. Renting a one bedroom apartment such as the North Lake or Charleston can be a bit small but, you can regain your sense of space with a few simple organizational pieces designed to maximize your minimal space.

Create a closet with storage drawers and boxes, and use a curtain to conceal them. Find an empty corner or wall space, and fill it from the floor to as high as you can reach with storage boxes or drawers in all sizes. Then install a curtain track or rod from your ceiling (making sure to install it to the rafters), in front of the storage boxes. Then place a curtain along the track or rod, and your clutter is instantly managed and out of sight.

Use racks to maximize cabinet space in your apartment. Vertical racks can store oddly-shaped items, such as lids with knobs, that don’t stack well, or help keep plastic storage container lids within reach. Horizontal racks can add an additional shelf for items that don’t stack to the top of the shelf, such as plates, cups and cleaning supplies. Inexpensive custom cupboard shelf and drawer kits create storage for canned goods, cleaners, food wraps and jars.

In addition to the suggestions above, keep clutter at a minimum by putting things away whenever you are no longer using them. Hang up clothes and put shoes away immediately, and think hard about purchasing knick-knacks or additional decorative items for your home before you first get rid of a few things first. Hold a yard sale if you need to, which may fund your storage solutions, and remember to maintain clutter daily. If you feel as though being in a one bedroom apartment is too much then we do have bigger sizes available. We have larger one bedroom apartments in our phase 1&2 locations and we also have 2 and 3 bedroom apartments available too.
