Narrow living areas sometimes cause problems, especially when you want to store things to look neat. You might have self storage, but because you have too many things, that isn’t enough. There are several tricks to store things in the apartment so that you can try neatly.
In the living room
• Use bookshelves
Bookshelves can be used not only for storing books. Use this item to display photos or toys and DVDs. You can choose a bookshelf that is not too expensive and add wallpaper behind the shelf to make it look more attractive.
• Hang the TV
To make more room for other things, hang your TV but place the table underneath to store movies and books. This will maximize space and function.
Use the basket to store objects that you want to hide or reduce clutter. Fill the pretty basket with children’s toys, office equipment, cooking books, or other things, then place the basket on a shelf or under the table so that it isn’t too visible.
• Coffee table
Replace your coffee table with ottoman storage. If you want a tablet-shaped ottoman, choose one that has a shelf or drawer underneath.
• Use curved furniture
Place curved furniture, like chairs, in the corner of the room, and use the area behind it to store items like your favorite CD collection.
• Hidden storage
Take advantage of hidden storage as much as possible. In addition to raising the mattress, you can also use a tablecloth on the coffee table and keep the items underneath so that they are not visible.
In the bedroom
• High bed
Use a high bed so that there is space at the bottom. You can use this space to store boxes or other objects.
• Side table
You can replace the side table with a decoration box or suitcase and fill it with clothes or shoes.
• Shelf cabinets
Add shelves to the top or bottom of the cupboard. That way you again get additional storage area.
• Back door area
Add hooks or hanging storage behind the door of the room and inside the closet door.
In the bathroom
• Storing goods in the apartment with hangers
If you do not have much space in the bathroom, take advantage of space on the wall. Hang a pretty wire basket on the wall to store small items. You can use decoration hangers to store necklaces and bracelets on the wall. Aside from being a decoration, this also makes your drawers no longer full.
• Small shelf
Each bathroom can use a storage container but sometimes it is difficult to find one that looks pretty and is quite small in size. Try using a small rack to store towels and small cloths.
