Apartment living is extremely rewarding, but often difficult when it comes to storage. Luckily it doesn’t have to be! With just a few of these useful storage hacks, you will be able to effectively maximize your space whether you live in a 1 bedroom or a 2 bedroom apartment. Check out some of these unique tips for making to help you store your items efficiently!


1) Maximize Your Closet Space

All you need to increase your closet space is a utility chain and some hangers! Hang the chain on your closet rod and then hang your hangers on each of the chain links. You now have six times the storage space for hanging up clothes! This trick will free up space in your closet for shoes and accessories.


2) Create a Makeup Wall

Clear the bathroom counter of loose makeup products by placing them on a magnet board. All you’ll need is a piece of metal, a frame, and some magnets. Place some cute wallpaper or cardstock over the metal, and then place it into the frame after making sure it’s cut to size. Now all you need to do is attach some small magnets to the back of your makeup products and stick them to the board to keep your bathroom counter clear at all times!


3) Store Out of Season Clothes

Purchase a shallow, but long storage box from your local home supply store and use it for all your clothes that aren’t in season right now. Under bed storage is the perfect place for sweaters in the summer or shorts in the winter.


4) Maximize Your Under Sink Storage

Make the most of the storage under your bathroom sink by utilizing a two-tiered organizer. You will be able to fit so many more products under the sink with an added level of shelving. This technique can also be used for underneath the kitchen sink as well.


5) Store Grocery Bags Conveniently

Place all of your used plastic grocery bags into an empty wet wipes container to keep them out of sight and organized. For added flair, decorate the outside of the container with colored duct tape and label with a marker.


6) Jewelry Storage with a Corkboard

Purchase a corkboard from your local craft store and use it to store your jewelry once it’s hung up on your bedroom wall. You will be able to store many different pieces and it won’t take up any drawers or additional space. The best part is that your necklaces won’t get tangled!


7) Add Risers To Your Bed

If you are finding that you don’t have enough space under your bed, invest in some bed risers! You will be able to fit bigger boxes or even laundry baskets under your bed with the added height. There are a lot of risers that are sold with outlets on them, so it will be beneficial for charging devices as well!


8) Invest in Storage Friendly Furniture

Extra storage space can be found in ottoman seats that can serve both the purpose of seating and storage. Now you’ll simultaneously have an extra seat for a guest and extra invisible storage space.


9) Tiered Counter Storage

Utilize levels when it comes to freeing up counter space, whether it’s in your kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. Invest in a tiered tray that will be able to hold anything from fruits and vegetables to washcloths and skincare products.


10) Removable Hooks

Removable hooks are the best way to store a variety of items without taking up too much space. They’re perfect for hanging towels or robes in the bathroom, or keys and bags near the kitchen.
