You Can’t Live Without These 12 Design Hacks in Your Apartment

We all have piles of books, clutter and unused kitchen appliances lying around the house. For that, here are 12 hacks from for better living. 

Apartment Hacks:

1. Use a curtain rod to hang purses, scarves and bags underneath your bed. This space-saving hack is a great way to keep your room looking clean. If you’re like most people, you have enough bags that you’d rather not see every time you walk into your room.

2. Hang picture frames on the wall with hooks for added storage space. If you have some extra wall space to spare, consider using it as storage space for clothes and accessories that may otherwise go unused in your closet. This will help keep things organized without sacrificing the aesthetic appeal of the room itself.

3. Under-bed storage containers are a necessity for anyone who uses their bedroom as an office or den area. These containers have a variety of uses: you can store shoes, accessories, books, files or jackets. If you don’t want to spend too much money on the storage containers themselves, consider using those large shoe boxes that don’t usually get used because they’re stacked with clothes. You might be surprised how much room they’re able to have once you remove all of the old contents from it.

4. Keep your bedroom neat and tidy by using shoe hooks as wall mirrors for cosmetic or hair products. If vanity mirrors are too common in your space already, consider adding one to a dresser drawer for easy access.

5. Don’t throw away that cardboard box you always pack your shoes in.

Use the box itself to store and organize your shoes. You can stack them in order or separate each pair, depending on how much space you have available. This will help save space so that you don’t need to take up multiple dresser drawers with shoes or keep them in plastic containers.

6. Use tension rods to hang cabinet doors on the wall as decorative storage spaces for whatever else you want to put there – like bags, belts, scarves and hats. This will not only increase your storage space but also provide you with a place to hang other things that would normally be cluttered at the bottom of your closet or under the bed. You can also utilize this space to label your hung items.

7. Use those old wooden shelves you have standing in your room as more storage space.

This is great for storing smaller items that would be worthless if they are stored away in a closet or under the bed. Even if you do end up using them for storage instead, they will still look beautiful on display. This will help bring a little bit of personality to your living space and make it feel more like home.

8. When using the space underneath your dining room table, don’t be afraid to stack books and other flat objects on top of each other. This will give you more space to use as you please. You can also use this space as a catch-all for those small objects lying around that you’ll eventually end up losing somewhere in your apartment.

9. Use a wine rack for your shoes or boots that are cramping the open room of your closet. This is perfect for something like ballerina flats or heels that are easy to slide off and on when it comes time to head out of the door. Plus, it adds more character to your living space without taking up too much room.

10. You can utilize that space under your desk for storage. This might be the best tip in this entire article. There’s no way you can go wrong with extra storage space underneath your desk, which is especially great for anyone who has a desk in their room. This also comes in handy if you consider yourself an organizer and are constantly trying to keep everything in its place.

11. Stack books on the shelf below your bed to create more space of the bedroom without taking up much floor space at all. The best part about this is that it’s not only a great alternative to traditional bookshelves, but you can also use it as decorative décor once you’re finished with the books themselves.

12. Use the space above your kitchen sink as extra storage space. There’s no better way to store away things like brushes, tupperware and containers. Use them to store yours as well after you’re done with them so that it’s easily accessible.
