In a small apartment, you have a lot less room to be messy. Staying organized can make your living space feel a lot bigger than it is. Adding small bins to catch miscellaneous clutter is a great way to keep your space looking fresh. Fit more in your closet by adding hanging shelves, thin hangers or an extra closet rod that hangs below your clothes, doubling your storage space. Staying on top of a clean kitchen, putting clothes away and taking out the garbage will free up floor, counter and closet space and impress guests.
Cleaning out what you don’t need is another way to make the most of your small living quarters. Donate or sell old clothes that aren’t your style anymore. Instead of buying furniture that may not fit in your new space, consider renting furniture instead. Renting makes the move-in process very convenient because you don’t have to worry about the stress, hassle and cost of buying, moving, and storing furniture. Keeping tidy and cleaning out things you don’t need will open your apartment up for more relaxation and study space.
