Apartment Space Savers

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

I've started to do some research for ways to save space in my new apartment. It's a 1 bedroom with a living room, bathroom and kitchen, but it is very small. I'll admit that I have a lot of stuff so it's going to be hard to narrow it down and only bring the essentials. Besides my closet problems, the kitchen and bathroom might be challenging for practical places to put things. I went to Bed Bath & Beyond, Target and Home Goods and found some great ideas. Once we have the dimensions, we will be able to figure out what we really need.

Found these little sets of drawers, which would work for the bathroom, bedroom or living room.
Home Goods

Our bathroom is tiny, with a clawfoot tub and small vanity, this little cart could be put in a small space.

Shelves over the toilet would be good for things like a blow dryer, tissues or makeup.

I love the idea of putting this storage bench in one of our hallways.

This would also work for the hallway or a spot in the kitchen.

A kitchen table with fold down leaves is easy to put up against a wall.

This could be another option for storage over the toilet.

What ideas do you have for saving space in a small apartment? Any ideas are welcome!



  1. home goods has the best stuff! dangerous thought- i always buy alot haha

  2. I love all of these! I don't have a Home Goods near me, but TJ maxx always is helpful!


  3. Ohh I love this post, mostly because I am struggling right now! After two years in my apartment, I am finally facing the fact that half of my stuff cannot continue to rest in plast bins, so I just got one of those cubby systems from Target! Am setting it up tonight, will report back on the successfulness... :)

  4. I live in a small apartment too so I can totally relate! I love storing small items in decorative boxes, they look pretty and definitely hide clutter...which I never seem to have a shortage of!
