Apartment rentals provide space-efficiency and comfort combined with an affordable lifestyle. But sometimes space in an apartment can be tight. For more efficiency in apartment living and storage, try these creative approaches to storage solutions for everyday items.

Tuck sheets in.

Why keep trekking to your linen closet for your clean bed sheets? Tuck clean sheet sets in between the mattress and the box spring. When you take sheets off to wash them, your new ones are right there.

Unite and conquer.

Gather all your cleaning supplies into one bucket, stored under a bathroom or kitchen sink. You will be able to conquer any household cleaning chore simply by carrying the bucket around with you, instead of expending your energy going back and forth retrieving each cleaning product. Your cleaning supplies will take up less space, leaving you more room for other things.

Hide the bags.

Store clean trash bags in the bottoms of your trash barrels. When you empty the bag, the replacement bag will always be right there, within hand's reach. When it's time to buy a new box, simply distribute the new bags to the trash cans they belong to.

Compress the air.

New technology in storage options provides a terrific way to store off-season clothing using an ordinary vacuum. You can buy specialty storage bags at department stores that have a special nozzle built in. Just pack your sweaters, coats, mittens, and other items you won't be needing again until the colder months hit. Then, use your vacuum attachment to suck out all the extra air. Your storage bag will be compressed, and small enough to fit under your bed or almost anywhere else.

Use higher ground.

Most apartment kitchen cabinets don't reach all the way to the ceiling, leaving lots of extra storage space up high. Use this higher ground to store rarely used kitchen items like seasonal serving trays and platters, special tablecloths, linen napkins, and other things you only use once a year.

Get in the pocket.

Pocket hangers are convenient for storing smaller items that you don't have drawer space for. Hang pocket organizers on the back of bathroom and bedroom doors to store cosmetics, hair ornaments, hosiery, jewelry, socks, and other miscellaneous items.

When you use space efficiently in your new apartment, you'll find that you can store as many possessions as necessary to make your apartment life, at a complex like Horizon Court Properties, fun and comfortable.
