5 Ways to Organize Your Apartment

Simple Tips for Straightening Up

If you're living in an apartment or thinking about moving into one, now's the perfect time to get rid of the clutter and maximize the space you have. Check out these helpful tips for organizing your residence so you can really kick back and relax at home.

1. Donate, sell, up-cycle, or get rid of things you don't need. 

It's amazing how much stuff can accumulate in a home over the years. Whether you're spring cleaning or moving in, take time to go through your belongings to see what you don’t need. If you have an item that you’ve never used, you can probably let it go.

2. Go up as well as out. 

With stunning 9-foot ceilings and large cabinets, Wilshaw apartment homes provide the perfect opportunity to organize vertically. Look for organizational items such as taller bookcases, mini shelving units, hanging shoe racks (to use for shoes, hair care and cosmetic products, jewelry, ties, and more).

3. Use clear storage boxes in your closet or under your bed. 

With clear storage boxes, you can easily see what's inside. To save extra time, store frequently used items in easy-to-reach areas in your closets, and stash less frequently used items (like seasonal wear) out of the way. If you’re using opaque storage boxes, add a label so you know what’s inside.

4. Clean up your cords.

Do visible wires behind your electronics drive you nuts? Organize them by using cord protectors. (If you have pets, look for cord protectors that are chew-resistant). 

5. Think double-duty. 

Look for furniture that can be used for more than one purpose. We love ottomans and coffee tables with internal storage space, or bed frames with drawers.
