Clever Apartment Hacks That Can Help You Maximize Your Space To Its Fullest!


Renting an apartment does have notable advantages and disadvantages. One of the most common disadvantages is limited or small space. To make things worse, sometimes, you are not allowed to move or change anything inside your rented home.

But if you are eager to maximize the space of your apartment, talk to your landlord. Tell him or her that you will do some minor adjustments that can help not only you as the existing tenant, but his property too. Below are some simple apartment hacks that your landlord will surely approve. Remember, get his or her approval first before doing anything I listed below.

Coat Hooks



If you are sharing your apartment with some friends, hanging up a rack of coat hooks instead of a towel rod can help you stay organized while saving precious floor space.

Flap Behind or Under Television


Flap Behind TV Set

Creating a flap under your TV with some springs and hinges will allow you to hide and store your DVD or video game system. Again, it will help you stay organized while saving some precious floor space.

Storage Under The Bed


Under Bed Storage

You can buy a bed with a fully functioning storage underneath it. If you know someone who can do that kind of woodwork, you can ask him to do something that resembles the image above. Having this kind of bed will allow you to hide and store some of your precious belongings and at the same time, save floor space because you won’t need another cabinet for your items.

Stackable Chairs

Stackable Chairs

Instead of buying or using expensive chairs or dining table set, buy some stackable chairs. Aside from being a cheaper choice, it’s also a practical item when you are renting an apartment. You can simply stack them up and put in a corner when not in used.

Fold Down Table


Fold Down Table

If you can create a fold down table attached to your wall, much better. If not, call for some help. Having a fold down table can give you extra space by not using or placing another table at your rented home. It can serve as your study table or even a dining table if you are renting on your own.

And if you aren’t satisfied with the apartment hacks and tips I gave above, you can watch the following videos:
