Usable space is precious when you live in an apartment. To maximize every inch, you’ve got to be organized. Thankfully, the Internet is brimming with ideas for storing everything from cutting boards to cleaning supplies.
The following are six of the cleverest storage hacks we’ve come across. Use them and your apartment will be more spacious —and tidier— in no time!
Grouping containers and lids might seem like a no-brainer, but it’s surprising how many people don’t bother. Use a plate rack to stack lids vertically.
This hack is especially handy for those who buy a lot of single-serving snacks. Instead of setting the snacks on shelves, hang them on a wall using glued curtain hooks.
Take your cutting boards and cookie sheets off shelves and put them on the back of cupboard doors.
Hang a shoe organizer on the back of a door and use it to store cleaning supplies.
Declutter your medicine cabinet and vanity top by putting toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. in a silverware organizer inside a bathroom drawer.
Use a ladder in place of a bedside table. The rungs offer more storage space.
We know that sometimes hacks just don’t cut it; you simply need more room for your stuff. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of great apartment communities that offer oversized closets, bike storage, or additional storage space that you can use for whatever you wish.
