It doesn’t matter how much floor space you have, storage will always be a problem if you don’t have the right tools.
There’s only so much you can cram into cupboards and under the bed, and if you’re careless it won’t take long until your shelving and floor space is piled to the rafters with junk.
If you’re moving to a new apartment in Dallas TX, don’t let issues with space ruin your living experience. Follow these tips to ensure your apartment remains nice and organized.
Think Inside the Box
Think about what other furniture could double up as a storage space. Your coffee table and bed will no doubt have an open space underneath. Buy some baskets or nice looking storage boxes that’ll fit snugly underneath. People will hardly notice them and if you manage to find something that’s the same décor style, it’ll fuse seamlessly with the surroundings without hindering the aesthetic.
Add Additional Shelving
The number one mistake most people make when they’re looking for storage is thinking about floor space. Walls are usually overlooked. Attach shelving to store books, DVD’s or anything that will complement the look of your apartment.
Install Storage Racks
Cycling is very popular in Dallas TX, so if you’re moving to a new apartment you may want to consider getting a bike. For sports equipment and bicycles, consider installing racks to hang up your gear. This is not only functional, but turns otherwise disruptive belongings into a feature.
Install Magnetic Hangers in the Kitchen
When it comes to the kitchen it can be difficult to fuse good looking décor with efficient placement. When you’re cooking trolling back and forth to get knives and other utensils is frustrating; this is where magnetic hangers can help. Here you can make a nice display out of your metallic and stick them to the walls in easy reach of your prep area.
Embrace Decorative Storage Opportunities
If you have a lot of things and literally can’t find the space, use them as decorations. Horizontally stack books with similar spines together and place them on open shelves; hang up an abundance of framed photos and pictures in one area to create a collage accent wall; try to decorate in a whimsical nature to create a sense style that would fuse with what some people may consider clutter.
Of course, the less you have the less you’ll need to even think about storage. Before you start buying new furniture or rearranging your belongings, give your apartment a thorough tidy and get rid of as much clutter as possible. If you’re moving to a new apartment in Dallas TX and have furniture that you’re unsure about using, there are plenty of storage companies in the area that can hold on to your good until you’re ready to use or sell them.
