Apartment Living BlogDiy › Creative Storage Hacks

If you’re living in a tight space, a little bit of clutter can take up a lot of room. Luckily, ForRent.com can help you come up with some creative storage hacks to use.

Take advantage of many of the nooks and crannies you already have in your home. You may have a bed which has plenty of room underneath. Use that space for baskets and boxes to store items you may not need very often. At the same time, you can use a headboard with shelf space to store other trinkets.

You can also invest in a pegboard for use in the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom. This allows you to hang items for easy access.

Also for the bedroom, you can install crown molding on the wall in order to hang up your shoes. This can free up a ton of space in your closet.

Some loose items like paper clips, rubber bands and pushpins can get lost easily in your desk. But spare ice cube trays can act as excellent storage spaces and clean up the clutter.

Some creative storage ideas are as simple as hanging some hooks on a seldom used wall. These are perfect for purses, bags, coats and even boots.

You know those shoe bags some people hang in their closet? Those can also be used in kitchen pantries and utilities closets to store paper towels, cleaning products and more.

You can also use fruit baskets to hang toys, accessories, kitchen appliances and more. This handy item puts everything within reach without taking up too much room.

These small space storage solutions only scratch the surface of what’s out there. Now you can get started freeing up space.
