When you live in an apartment, you might find that you don’t have quite as much storage space as you need. The good news is you don’t have to rely only on closets to store your belongings. You can create your own storage solutions that won’t take up much space at all in your home.

Hang Up Hooks

Hooks can provide you with convenient storage space for hanging scarves, jewelry, belts and other accessories in your closet. Choose adhesive hooks to stick on your wall rather than using nails to hang hooks if your building has a policy against putting holes in walls. Adhesive hooks can hold these lightweight items and keep them organized, so you can easily find what you need. You can also use adhesive hooks in your kitchen or near your door to hold hats and other outdoor items.

Set Up Shelving Units

Bookcases and shelving units with cubbies make ideal places to put a wide range of items, from books and DVDs to knickknacks and collectibles. Since they’re available in several sizes, you can choose a size that works best in your apartment. Keep in mind that you can also purchase baskets for holding linens and other household items, and place these inside the cubbies or on bookcase shelves. This helps keep your shelves looking neat and tidy.

Choose a Storage Chest

Getting a storage chest for your bedroom, living room or even your dining room offers a convenient place to put items so that they’re out of view. This helps cut down on clutter in your home while also giving you a chance to spruce things up with a decorative chest, such as a rustic oak wood chest or an elegant cherry wood chest. You can also use the top of the chest to place books, lamps and other items.

Select Stacking Tables

Some tables, such as bedside tables and end tables, are available with open bases that provide you with a chance to create extra storage space. You can slide smaller tables under the larger ones, and pull them out when you need them. You can also make use of the open area below these tables for storage. For example, you can place a basket with knitting supplies, magazines or other items under these tables and easily take them out when you want to use them.
