Storage should be a given in every home, but unfortunately, closet space is getting smaller and smaller in new apartments, especially in cities. If your apartment is lacking closet space, you need to find creative ways to fit all of your clothes in your home. Continue reading for a few tips on how to maximize storage space in an apartment with small closets.
Most bedroom closets are made with one single hanging rod, and maybe one shelf if you’re lucky. This setup doesn’t allow for much storage, but you can switch it up to fit your needs! Divide the closet in half with a panel, and on one side, install two hanging rods, and on the other, install floor to ceiling shelving. Check with your landlord before making any changes, or use modular closet systems to help make the most out of your closet space.
Decorative screens can be used as room dividers, but they can also be used to create your own dressing room area. In a corner of your room, hang your clothes on a small garment rack or portable shelving behind the decorative screen that matches your decor. While it doesn’t add any extra storage, it does help to hide your clothing racks to make your room look cleaner and more put together.
Under The Bed
Adding too many storage solutions can take up precious room in a small apartment, so don’t forget about your options under the bed! If your bed is raised off the ground, you likely have plenty of room for narrow bins or containers specially made to fit under bed frames. This is the perfect place to keep out-of-season clothes, extra linens, and shoes that you don’t wear every day.
In a small apartment, it’s best to purchase furniture that has many uses, such an ottoman that can store blankets, or a coffee table with a top that lifts to reveal storage space. When you’re tight on closet space, these items can hold your sweaters, shoes, and any other clothing you want to hide away!
