1. Use Dual-purpose Furniture to Your Advantage

Dual-purpose furniture is currently trending for the apartment dweller, and there are certainly a number of stylish solutions available. If you want to add extra seating in your living room, consider incorporating sleek and modern storage ottomans, which can be opened up to tuck away clutter or remain closed to serve as easy, pull-up seating.

2. Embrace Under-the-bed Storage

Want to maximize your closet’s hanging space? Pack some rolling storage containers with your out-of-season clothing and keep them under your bed. This will make it easier for your to browse through your closet, and make for a quick project when you're ready to transition your clothes to the next season.

3. Optimize Shelving with Baskets

When you add decorative baskets to shelving, they basically become drawers with a pop of color and personality. Baskets are fairly inexpensive and they can help organize your clutter while also keeping items relatively hidden.

4. Create a Wall of Bookshelves

You can order some affordable bookshelves online from a retailer such as Ikea to create a wall of bookshelves. Consider painting these bookshelves with an unexpected pop of color to reflect your unique personality. This extra storage space is ideal for storing books, trinkets, collections, pictures, and much more.

5. Give Behind-the-door Shoe Holders Other Uses

If you want to maximize the storage space in your bathroom, consider using an over-the-door shoe holder to create a hanging medicine cabinet, organize your toiletries, or store your makeup. This solution can also work well in your closet for storing underwear, socks, scarves and jewelry.

6. Use a Dish Rack to Store Mail, Files, and Loose Papers

If you're finding it overwhelming to keep your mail, important files, and loose paperwork in order, give an old dish rack a new purpose by using it to store and organize these items. You can even take advantage of the silverware basket to store pens for when you need to jot down a quick note.

You can never have too much storage space, and these creative and convenient storage solutions can help keep your space in order.
