5 Apartment Organization Hacks




Live the comfortable and stylish life you have always wanted at Notting Hill Apartments. Our apartments in Dunwoody, GA offer the best combination of luxury and comfort you’ll never want to leave behind!


Balancing comfort and style is hard for smaller spaces like apartments. Here are five apartment organization hacks to help get you started on tidying your home.


Get A Large Rug


When working with a small space, it’s crucial to draw guests’ attention to a focal point. Laying a large area rug in the room will give off the illusion that there is more space than there is in reality. Because you have a large rug that extends close to the edges of the walls, our eyes pick up the wideness of the rug, rather than how close the walls are to each other. Tricking our eyes into looking out towards the edges and not in towards the center is the key to subconsciously enlarging a room.


Invest In Furniture With Storage Capacity


Whenever we do run out of space, reorganizing and tidying can be tough. A simple hack to enhancing your apartment design and gaining more storage space is to purchase furniture pieces that not only look good, but also have compartment space. Ottomans are a great place to start. They can be a new centerpiece for the living room and store extra pillows and blankets that take up too much space on the couch. 


Can’t Decide Which Shoes?


Sometimes finding the right shoe to wear with an outfit can take a bit of time out of your morning. Storing your shoes in clear containers will help you organize the shoes you have and help you easily see them. Now when you are in a rush to leave, you can see exactly which pair you would like to wear and where you can grab them and go!


Tiered Hangers Are Your Best Friend


If your closet is getting cramped, you can save space by using tiered pants hangers. These hangers have several layers of wire to hold multiple pairs of pants at a time, all in the same space a normal hanger would take up. For shirts, there are also tiered hangers that allow you to hook several hangers on one main hanger, stacked in a vertical fashion. Using these hangers will effectively save you horizontal space in your closet so you don’t have to compromise your style.


Use Removable Adhesive Shelves In the Bathrooms


Bathroom counters can get crowded with soap, toothbrushes, and many more of the products we use on a daily basis. Putting up adhesive shelves on the side walls of the room will add space to move those products away from the counter. It’s important to check that the adhesive on the shelf is strong enough to hold your products, but aren’t damaging to the walls. We recommend the Command adhesive shelves that come in various designs to suit your taste. Waking up to a clear counter space can help you start your day in a good mood!
