While a minimalist might take this as a sign to purge their possessions, we recommend taking a different route. Getting crafty to find ways to fit all of your belongings into your small apartment storage will be a creative and fun task.
Our number one tip for anyone searching for extra storage space is to search for multipurpose furniture. We recommend items like storage ottomans and benches with built-in cubbies. These are items you’ll probably have in your apartment, but now, they are convenient space savers to store your extra pillows, pet supplies, and other miscellanies.

Cabinet and Under Sink Organizers
Most kitchen cabinets come with sufficient shelving. However, there is always more you can do to optimize the area under your sink or in the bathroom. Dual-tier organizers will become your best bet, as they essentially double your storage space. This lets you store cleaning supplies and personal products more efficiently. We are major fans of organizers with baskets that hang on cabinet doors. These take advantage of the full depth of cabinets while still allowing you easy access to items in the back.
Storing Under The Bed
Storing under your bed may become your new revolutionary discovery in 2022. Take full advantage of the space under your bed and let it become prime real estate for storage bins. You don’t need a unique storage bed to use this forgotten space either. You can find slim plastic containers that you can slide under or large zip-up bags. Try organizing your seasonal clothes and shoes in bins under your bed, or try your spare linens for guests, holiday decor, or even sports gear.
