How to Create Storage in a Small Apartment

If you live in a small apartment, you know how difficult it can be to maintain a clean and uncluttered space with limited storage options. Multi-functional furniture is your friend in this scenario. Look for pieces that can serve more than one purpose or make good use of normally unused space.

Check out some of our designers’ favorite storage ideas for small spaces:

In small bedrooms with limited space for dressers, under bed storage can be a life changer. Whether you use them to store your off-season clothes, additional bedding, or towels, under bed storage can make a big difference in your overall storage capacity.

An over-the-toilet cabinet makes great use of an underused space and will help keep your beauty products, hair styling tools, and cleaning supplies off the counter.

In addition to looking great, these versatile ottomans can be used as a footrest or additional seating option and they hold a surprising amount of stuff. Remember to think about scale when choosing storage furniture for small spaces. It can be tempting to grab the biggest storage ottoman you can find but it should look balanced with the size of the room and your other furniture.
