Do you live in a small apartment and struggle to keep your things organized and mess under control? Well, fret not, since you are not alone! A lot of you here might have experience being annoyed with the fact that you can't have a particular arrangement considering the fact that there is no enough space for you to put your belongings in the desired place. Moreover, you don't have any choice but to find some other ways just for you to keep your things in order.

If we want to make our home a liveable place, of course, one of the many things we can do to achieve the desired outcome is to organize the necessary things in our house. Yes, organizing things in the house can also be a hassle and daunting thing to do. There are actually a lot of things you need to think of before you can decide on to how, what and where you are going to put a particular thing in a specific place.

Well, if you are one of those people who are still struggling onto what to do with all those things, then here are some tips for you to apply in your own home. And fret not, even if you have small spaces in your apartment, you can still achieve your desired outcome.

Tip # 1: Use your walls

Wall decorations – that is one of the common things most homeowners do when it comes to their walls. However, don't you know that you can also use it as one of your storages at home? Yes, you definitely can. Aside from hanging some frames on your walls, you can also install some shelving for you to put your collections. You can also put some vases on it, and/or whatever things you like to put in there.

Tip # 2: Invest in double-duty furniture

Nowadays, there are already a lot of stores that sell double-duty furniture. You just have to choose the right size and the right color to compliment the things inside your home. Well if not, you can do some DIY and have it as a dual purpose. With that, you will definitely save some spaces on your apartment.

Tip # 3: Streamline technology


When you have a small space in your apartment, as much as possible, the sizes of your gadgets and other appliances such as your TV, speakers are just right for the particular space that you intend to use for them. And if you have a lot of CDs and/or DVDs, then make use of the double-duty furniture that you have at home.

Tip # 4: Go for the monochrome color scheme


One of the biggest factors you can add to your apartment to look like you have a bigger space is through its color schemes. Choosing the right color for you apartment is very important for you to make. It doesn't just add beauty but also, it gives an illusion on having a bigger space on your home.  When you use a darker color, it will add visual interest to the area that you have. Moreover, you have to make sure that you limit the accent color to one area of the apartment to avoid overwhelming the eye.

Tip # 5: Make use of dead space

Dead spaces are those spaces that are available and can still be used for other storages. Well, if you have your suitcase, why not try putting it under your bed? If you have a decorative basket that is used for kitchen utensils, then try putting it above your fridge. Or if you think that the corner of your apartment is empty, then try putting something just to fill the dead spaces that you have at home.

Tip # 6: Clean it regularly

One of the many reasons why we tend to have a smaller space in our apartment is because we don't clean our mess regularly.  When we clean our apartment, it will be easier for us to do the cleaning than taking it all at once. Also, you have to remind yourself to be organized all the time for you not to be irritated when you see things that are not in their proper places.
Being with the things that you do is definitely not a strong excuse for you not to be organized at home. Even if it's just a little bit of your time, you can still have a satisfying place to live.
