Below we have put together a list of some of the best apartment hacks for apartment living, decorating, and storing!

If there is just not enough room at your place for everyone you invited to your morning yoga session, this is where stackable chairs really come in handy. They create more space if you’re entertaining, and are easier to move around when you are cleaning! For super space savers, you can also buy stackable end tables and stools. 

Mason jars can be used to store any kind of small household item, and better yet, they are a relatively inexpensive purchase at your local craft store. You can attach them to the wall or line them up along the counter for a nice way to store and display small items. 

Wires from your television, cable box, Internet router, etc., can be a real eyesore. Look for creative ways to hide these wires like a strategically placed stack of books or photo frame. 

Let’s face it, some of us are “collectors” and like having lots of things, but anyone with their own space knows that those boxes take up too much room! Some of the most common culprits are shoeboxes, cereal boxes, boxed freezer items, and electronics. If you have used an item more than a few times, throw away the original box. If there is only one ice-pop left, take it out of the box!

Don’t forget that height is your best friend in an apartment home, so think about how you can use the entire space. Utilize the beautiful 42” designer kitchen cabinets to store all of your kitchen needs and more. If you love to decorate, but need more surfaces, purchase wall shelves that create dimension in a room. 

It is a lot easier to justify buying a piece of furniture when it also doubles as something else! Some of our favorites are trundle beds, coffee tables that double as an ottoman, pieces with storage space inside, or anything foldable. 

Today, Pinterest is our go-to for everything do-it-yourself. DIY projects are a great way to save some money to put towards other things or create something that you wouldn’t be able to buy in a store.
