Maximize counter space by using mountable appliances.
Many microwaves can be mounted underneath cabinets. [6]
Black & Decker offers a mountable coffee pot. [7]
Use cabinet and drawer organizers to make the most of those spaces. [7]
Use a folding table and folding chairs for your dining area. [8]

Use a loft bed. [5]
This gets your bed off the floor, so you can use the space beneath it for a desk or a dresser.
Use tall dressers. [4]
It won’t take up as much floor space, but you’ll be able to store your clothes and other items more effectively.

Use an over-the-toilet organizer to add shelves and cabinets. [7]
Store your linens and toiletries.

Living Room
Use a convertible sofa. [3]
You can sleep here if your apartment is too small for a bedroom.
If you do have a bedroom, guests can sleep here.
Use a coffee table or ottoman that doubles as storage space. [4]
Store items in the hidden compartments.
Ottomans can double as extra seating.

For Your Whole Apartment
Bookcases and Shelving Units [2]
Maximize your space by using the walls.
Bookcases won’t take up a lot of floor space.
Display books, CDs, DVDs, and other items throughout your home.
Shelves and wall hooks can be used in every room to keep things easily accessible and off the floor. [3]
