4 Condo Storage Hacks that You Need to Know
Include these tips on your list of must-dos
We've probably listed tons of tips on how you can make the most of a small space but it doesn't stop there. Since we all want to live comfortably, even in a limited space, here are four more hacks that you need to include in your top secret list.
Living in a space with limited floor area seem impossible—given your numerous belongings, but with clever storage solutions, you can live large! Apply these ideas today:
Utilize every corner
Place a storage unit in each area of the unit to avoid clutter. Get freestanding shelves and cabinets as these can help you store almost everything—from clothes and shoes, to books and magazines. Remember, you can turn even an awkward corner or niche into a storage spot. Install a rack or wall-mounted shelves to maximize this available space.
Use textures to define areas
The difference in furniture materials can also help define each area in the space. The contrast of textures between wood and steel in the dining area and the soft fabrics in the living area helps create a distinction. This enables you to define spaces without building walls that make the home look cramped.
Eyesores such as exposed wires and sockets can ruin the overall look of your place! According to interior designer Kimi Manuel, you can conceal them by placing a piece of furniture to cover it up like wooden panels. You may also hide these using pieces of furniture like a sofa or console table.
Go for a unified look
Most small spaces can benefit from an open layout to make it seem airy and spacious. Pick items that follow the same theme or style so as not to disrupt the look and vibe of your home. If you're going for a warm and tropical look, invest in pieces showcasing wood. For a minimalist feel, experiment with white shelves and built-in cabinets.
