Organization hacks for a studio apartment

Organization hacks for a studio apartment

  |     |   Uncategorized

Living in a studio apartment is a great option for those who want to experience the Santa Monica lifestyle but don't need a lot of space.  Studio apartments offer all the comforts and amenities of a traditional apartment in a more compact design, and are usually more cost-effective for renters living on their own. 

If you’re thinking about renting a studio apartment in Santa Monica but are concerned about how you’ll make it work, check out these 7 storage/organization hacks that will make studio-living more manageable:  

Use Wall Space 

Using the wall space in your studio apartment is a great way to increase storage space. Some creative ways to use wall space include: 

  • Use hooks to hang clothes 

  • Hang a chalkboard/white board/wall calendar 

  • Install open shelves for a cleaner, more seamless look 

  • Paint a pegboard, cut it to size,  hang it on the wall and use it to organize kitchen utensils, craft supplies, and bathroom toiletries. 

Maximize Your Closet Space 

There are many ways you can maximize your closet space in a studio apartment. Some easy ways to do this include: 

  • Adding a mirror to your closet door 

  • Use bins to keep shoes organized 

  • Install shelves to create instant storage space 

  • Use wicker baskets to organize small items like accessories or seasonal items 

  • Install hooks to hang purses, hats, jackets and bags 

  • Mount a task light to make it easy to find what you’re looking for  

  • Instantly create more space to hang clothes by installing a second clothing rod higher up in your closet 

Use Storage-Focused Furniture 

When you are choosing furniture for your studio apartment, it’s essential that you look for multi-purpose pieces. If you want a footrest, find one that doubles as a storage compartment for blankets or other decorative items. If you’re buying a couch, find one that has hidden storage or pulls out into a bed. Other multi purpose furniture options that are great for studio apartments include:  

  • A bookcase with a foldout table 

  • Bedside table with built-in lamp 

  • Double rod shower curtain that holds the shower curtain and your towel 

  • A headboard with a built-in bookshelf 

  • Wall mounted shoe cabinet with mirrored doors 

  • A dining table that can fold down to save space 


Hang Your Pots and Pans 


One easy way to save space in your kitchen is to hang your pots and pans. This frees up valuable space in your kitchen cabinets and can add a stylish vibe to your space. Pot racks are easy to install and come in many different colors and styles like steel, wood, and wrought iron. This easy hack can free up space in your kitchen and add to the aesthetic at the same time.  


Elevate Your Bed 


The space under your bed is prime real estate, and can be a game changer for keeping your studio organized. If possible, elevate your bed so you can easily access the space underneath. This is a great place to add storage bins for seasonal clothes, fitness equipment, suitcases, and other items that you want to store away.  


Opt For A Digital Projector 


Instead of a TV, opt for a digital projector to watch your favorite shows and movies. A TV can take up valuable surface space, and even if you hang it on the wall you’re losing wall space. A digital projector is easy to use, set up and put away, and can be a great alternative to a big TV. 


Utilize The Space Behind the Door 


Sometimes a little creativity goes a long way when maximizing the space in your studio apartment. One way to do this is to utilize the backside of your bedroom and bathroom doors. Try some of these creative storage hacks that can be installed to a bedroom, bathroom, or closet door:  


  • Add hooks for hang robes on the back of the bathroom door 

  • Use spice racks on the inside of the pantry door 

  • Install hanging canvas organizers on the back of your bedroom door for storing office/craft supplies 

  • Put up a  wine rack on the back of the bathroom door to hold towels
