How to Make the Most of Your Small Space
You would be surprised how many pieces of furniture can be used for extra storage! Some great options include:
- Getting a bookshelf headboard
- Using a chest as a coffee table
- Finding ottomans and couches with storage under the cushions
- Leaning a wooden ladder against the otherwise wasted space behind the door—this is great for hanging coats and blankets
Shelves, shelves, and more shelves
One of the biggest space-savers of all is shelving. You can add shelves virtually anywhere—in the cabinets (especially those lower cabinets that are usually just one big space), above the toilet, in the living room, in small nooks and crannies around the house.
You probably don’t have a lot of space for big dressers in your apartment, so hanging as many of your clothes as possible is a great solution—and hanging clothes take up a lot less space than a dresser.
Baskets and boxes
Whenever possible, have a spot for everything. When your space is cluttered, you’ll feel a lot more cramped. You can use decorative baskets and boxes as an easy way to store items while also blending in with the décor.
Get seasonal belongings out of the house with portable storage. You don’t need your beach chairs and boogie boards crowding your small apartment during the winter, and SMARTBOX can bring extra storage to you. Our portable storage containers are conveniently sized to fit in most standard-sized parking spaces, meaning they can be easily used on-site for packing and loading. To make things even simpler, we’ll bring our boxes to you and pick them up when you’re done. Using SMARTBOX for portable storage is as easy as picking up the phone and dialing 301-683-6111!
