Moving into your own apartment is always exciting and overwhelming. Apartment living has its advantages, but not having adequate storage space within the apartment is always a big concern for many people.

Learning to maximize space using creative storage options can help you achieve more efficiency and space in your home. Here are some of the items that can help you to add instant storage space in your apartment and achieve your goals.

Ottomans and benches

Ottomans and benches add style and function to any room. These are multitasking furniture, a great way to address multiple space needs and hold blankets and linens, DVDs and other items while serving as a footrest, seating, or even table space.

Cubbyhole organizers

Hanging storage on the wall utilizes the vertical space that is usually overlooked. There are many hanging storage products available in market including cubbyhole organizers that can go in any room and keep smaller items easily accessible.

Over-the-sink shelf/stand

To organize the kitchen and create a clutter free environment, keep frequently used items handy without sacrificing valuable counter space. An over-the-sink shelf/stand is a great item to include in your kitchen that you can place right over the top of your sink. Designed for functional purposes, this over-the-sink shelf/stand adds overall aesthetic appeal to the kitchen.

Clear plastic bins

Clear plastic bins help to keep your home organized. You can use clear plastic bins to hold clothes, shoes, and accessories. If you are looking for easily moveable plastic bins then, buy bins with gliders or wheels.


Bookshelves are the best option to give a traditional touch to the living room and provide a sense of organization. Custom bookshelves are an ideal way to maximize the functionality of your home and even made to fit in normally awkward spaces such as corners. Even more, they come in an infinite number of styles and colors so they also make a design statement.

Include the above-mentioned items to make the most of your new apartment before and after you move in.
