Whether you’re an apartment dweller in a busy city or you gave into the tiny home trend, you need to make the most of your space to store your belongings. Keeping your stuff out of sight will give the impression of more space, so use the tips below to get the clutter out of the way and make your small home feel huge.
Your door can be a space that’s being overlooked as a storage solution, possibly because you only see it as a way to get between rooms. But search for over-the-door hanging solutions to get everything from shoes to toys off the floor and keep your floors clean.
Windows can take up space and most people are reluctant to cover up natural light. But a well-placed shelf over a window won’t cause too much darkness, and if you take the opportunity to get your smaller items on them, the shelf can be as sleek as you want. This is a great idea for a kitchen, where you can keep spices and seasonings at an easy arm’s reach.
Opt for as many surfaces with as much storage underneath as possible, from coffee tables to end tables. Even dining tables aren’t exempt, a piece with some shallow shelves on the ends will let you get your chairs tucked away in the center while also giving you a spot for plates and glasses.
When you open a cabinet, it’s not just the shelves that are prime storage real estate, you have the back of the cabinet door to work with. Small hooks will hold everything from utensils in the kitchen to hair styling products in the bathroom. Just be sure the doors close flush and you’re good to go.
You likely have vertical space over your counters that you’re not using, and a tabletop shelf unit will let you take advantage of that. They’re not so big to be bulky but will help you get some use out of those spaces where the counter meets the wall and expand the surface area to arrange kitchen necessities.
