5 ways to better organize your apartment

We all know how quickly a small studio or one-bedroom apartment can get filled up with clothes, furniture and random belongings. But with a few tips and tricks, you can better organize your Chicago apartment and keep your living space—and ultimately your life—organized and clutter-free.

1. For small studio or one bedroom apts, add décor and storage space with wall shelving. Simple shelves can help you show off your CDs, movies, books or collections as art pieces rather than clutter.

2. In older Chicago South Side apartments with notoriously small closets, rack space can be limited. Address this by adding a second clothing rod under the original. This will double the amount of clothes you can hang, even in a tight space.

3. Select stylish furniture that also doubles as storage items. You can find ottomans, trunks, bureaus and more that add a special touch to your Chicago apartment, but also can discretely store books, knickknacks, seasonal clothing and more.

4. Use hidden storage space that you might not have thought about before. Putting seasonal clothing or extra linens in boxes under your bed can open up a lot of hidden storage space. Look into adding additional shelving above clothing racks in closets. Or use the space on top of your kitchen cabinets to store stylish bottles or kitchenware.

5. All those CDs, DVDs, books and more can really clutter an apartment if they are left on tables or desks. Instead, add an entertainment system with drawers to hold all these loose items. Not only will it clean up the clutter, but it will give you a centralized space to watch TV, listen to music or display your entertainment collections.

With a little forethought and some smart storage tips, even the smallest studio, one bedroom or two bedroom apartment can be clutter-free and clean. For more tips on creating a convenient and comfortable apartment, visit Pangea Real Estate.
