Avoid the clutter in a studio apartment

 

Let’s face it, at some point or another we look around our homes and wonder how we accumulated so much clutter. This can be especially difficult when you live in a studio apartment. However, there is hope! Here are a few ideas on how to maximize your studio apartment space.

  • Organization is key when you live in a studio apartment. Having a place for everything, and keeping it there can make your apartment feel less cluttered. Things you don’t use very often (like seasonal decorations) can be put in storage containers.
  • Think vertically. This can be a major space saver because it takes up less room on the floor. Buy or build shelves that you are able to store things on/in. You could also use the space above your cabinets to store things, or to put decorations on that you don’t have room for anywhere else.
  • Get a clothing rack to add a stylish touch and cleverly save space. You can put your favorite pieces on the rack and even coordinate them by color!
  • Mirrors can give the illusion of more space. You can usually find affordable mirrors at any of your major retailers, and they don’t take up much room.
  • If you really want to maximize your space, invest in a loft bed. There are many options for what to store under. You could use it for storage or you could put a desk beneath it. Plus, it feels a little bit more private of a sleeping area.
