Install Sufficient Storage Options Throughout the Apartment

Even though your apartment has limited floor space, you still need sufficient storage options beyond just closets. An easy way to provide this throughout the apartment is to use the walls, by installing custom joinery, either exposed or hidden shelving. Belongings can be arranged in an attractive manner while storing them out of the way at the same time. If your apartment has stairs, build storage under them. This area is often wasted.
