Storage Tips for your First Apartment
When you are moving into your first apartment you need to realize that it might not be as big as the home you are moving out of. Apartments take a little creativity when it comes to finding storage space for all of your belongings. We at Legacy Court Apartments in Midvale, UT can help you in all of your apartment living needs by providing you with some storage tips.
Getting off on the right foot in organization always helps. This starts as early as when you begin to pack up your belongings from your old place. If you pack by room and label all your boxes you can have an easier time during the unpacking process. It is also beneficial if you go through and decide what items you can toss, donate, or place in storage. Think of this as a fresh start in your new apartment and get rid of the stuff that tends to just collect dust and take up too much room.
Finding creative ways to store your items in your apartment will help you get the most out of your new space. By purchasing furniture with built in storage you can get the most use out of your everyday necessities. Purchasing items such as ottomans and side tables allow you to get multiple uses out of one piece of furniture. You can store blankets in an ottoman and use it to prop your feet up or as a decorative piece. The same goes for side tables. Be creative and use what you have. Another tip is to always think up. Take advantage of the height of your walls and install shelving or add a strategically placed bookshelf. This is the best way to maximize your storage opportunities.
Don’t Waste Space
There are often spaces we could use for storage that we just don’t think about. By purchasing shallow totes or plastic bins you can store extra clothing or blankets under the bed. Take advantage of the space behind your door as well. Install hanging hooks to hang coats, towels, or bath robes.
As mentioned before, sometimes you just can’t seem to fit all of your belongings in your new apartment. You don’t need to worry about losing your precious items, you can always rent a storage unit to ensure the safety and quality of your favorite items. Pick a storage unit that is close by so you can have access to your unit as often as you need.
