Well no worries, my friend. We’re here to help.

Do you have fifty pairs of shoes and only wear five? Sometimes the answer is easy.
If you don’t need it, get rid of it.
Need a place to store all those pesky spray bottles? Buy a tension rod or a short shower curtain rod and hang them up underneath the sink. Easy peasy!
Let’s talk about one of the best apartment tools ever…. command hooks! Command hooks allow using up the wall space without leaving a trace.
Wicker baskets can be your friend. This trick is awesome for people who can’t put screws in the wall.
Something extremely useful is shoe organizers that go on the back of doors.
Another product is shadow boxes. Get creative with them! Create a bookshelf…whatever you come up with!
Now that you’re an adult and you don’t have to worry about bogeymen under the bed anymore, you can buy a pack of bed risers.
With the help of shelves and storage cubes, you can create an entire wall of usable storage space.
Think inside the box. Or, better yet, inside the chair. Or inside the couch. Tons of companies sell ottomans with storage in them.
A properly positioned entertainment system not only looks nice, but it creates an out-of-the-way storage space.
Small apartment probably equals small fridge. The easily solution to this is to use bins and racks.
Use your suitcase for additional storage. It’s the perfect place to store all those wintry items you don’t need until next year.
There are typically an array of small spaces in every apartment that can be better utilized for storage. Get creative. Have fun.
Dividing up rooms is easy and creates the feeling of more space. Use what works for your tastes and your apartment.
We all know how valuable counter space is in a small apartment, so use multifunction appliances.
Bring some life into your living space with the Urbio vertical garden. The units are modular meaning you can design your very own vertical garden.
Trunks are so versatile. Find the right one and you’ll have a nice piece of decor that’ll leave your apartment looking quite elegant.
I know you haven’t used that serving tray.
So why not throw a couple of candles on it and spruce the place up a bit?
In apartments there are not only small fridges, but small cupboards. One great way to maximum space is shelf risers.
You know what else is fantastic? Bins!
Bins can come in any size and any style.
Spices tend to get everywhere – even when you have a spice rack. The great solution that I’ve seen for this is magnetic bottles.
It’s not always easy living in a small apartment. Look around. Get creative.
