1. Rent a Self Storage Unit
As people become more conscious about the environment and their carbon footprint, a self-storage unit is a great way to store items you no longer use but don't want to throw away. Having a secure self-storage unit also helps you utilize the space in your home more wisely. For instance, if you're replacing an old couch but don't have room for the new one, move it to a self-storage unit until you make room for it. In addition, a self-storage facility will provide you with the peace of mind that your belongings are safe and secure. You can also use the space to store items such as holiday decorations or seasonal clothes.
2. Utilize Vertical Storage Solutions
Finding space for large and bulky items in your home can be a real challenge. Utilizing vertical storage is an easy way to make the most of your space. Wall units, hanging shelves, and tall armor allow you to store items without taking up too much floor or counter space. Even better, many of these pieces are attractive and well-made enough to become the centerpieces of any room in your home.
Still, trying to figure out where to start? A built-in bookshelf can add style and functionality to any living room or bedroom. No matter how short on space you may feel, utilizing vertical storage options can help create more room in your life.
3. Hang Up Clothing in Closets
If you're anything like me, you know nothing makes a room feel more put together than organized closets. An easy way to accomplish this is to hang up all your clothing in the closet. This prevents unironed clothes from wrinkling on hangers and getting crushed beneath other items. Not only does this make it easier for you to get dressed in the morning, but it also allows you to see what clothing needs ironing or mending and avoid buying duplicate pieces. Take the time today to ensure all your clothes are hung neatly in your closets.

4. Get Creative With Furniture
The beauty of furnishing your house is that you can get creative and make it unique. Adding custom pieces or a DIY approach to furniture construction can bring more character and originality to your space. You may be surprised to find what kinds of furnishings our ancestors crafted with only the most basic tools and limited materials that have stood the test of time. Try looking at art galleries, museums, websites, or books for inspiration when crafting functional furniture pieces. As well, a good way to gain more space in your home is to make sure the furniture is correctly positioned.
Use these tips to maximize your small space and organize your things. By utilizing vertical storage, hanging up clothing, getting creative with furniture, and investing in self-storage units, you can make your apartment feel like a spacious oasis instead of a cramped closet. With a little effort (and some money), you can turn even the smallest studio into a comfortable home.
