Storage Tips and Tricks for Efficient Living in an Apartment


An apartment is delightful for many reasons, including simple lifestyles, close-knit communities and minimal maintenance.

Thankfully, creative storage tips for apartment closets can keep your home tidy and organized. Triple Crown Corporation has ample experience providing rental communities with practical living spaces. Trust our storage tips and tricks for efficient apartment living. 

Maximizing Your Apartment Closet Storage

Although most apartments have small closets, plenty of organizational techniques help you use the available space wisely. 

Understanding the Basics of Closet Organization and Storage

Keeping your closet neat saves time and avoids the frustration of not finding what you’re looking for. Overall, an organized closet contributes to an organized mind, leaving you more relaxed. The first step to achieving this organizational bliss is to declutter. 

Be sure to clear your closet of unnecessary items or unused clothing and consider donating your pre-loved items to charity. Decluttering frees up much-needed spaces and gives you peace of mind knowing your items can help someone in need. The next step is implementing an organizational system to keep everything in place. 

Innovative Ways to Maximize Apartment Closet Space

Once you’ve removed unnecessary items from your closet, you can organize it to maximize space with a few simple tricks, including:

  • Installing vertical storage solutions: When space is limited, vertical storage is your friend. You can install shelves, shoe racks, hooks and rails to utilize your closet’s vertical space. 
  • Using multifunctional furniture: Some of your furniture can double as storage space. For example, you could use the space under your bed to store items you seldom use. 
  • Incorporating renovation-free expansion techniques: You don’t have to call a contractor when you need more storage space. You can purchase a freestanding chest of drawers if your bedroom has enough space. If not, use hanging drawers or clothing baskets. 

Merging Aesthetics With Storage Efficiency

When you organize your closet, you can still maintain your apartment’s overall aesthetic. For instance, you can buy closet organization and storage items that match your color scheme. You can also purchase decorative storage items to enhance your apartment, such as an attractive jewelry box or an ottoman with storage space inside.
