Apartment Living: Re-organize Your Stuff, Re-energize Your Space

December 21, 2013

There’s a general rule that accompanies apartment living: No matter how big the space, you can always use a little more room. It’s just the way it is. Well, dear readers, we found this handy article here that outlines ten apartment organization tips that will make your apartment seem bigger than it is. Our three favorites are listed below.


3. Raise your Bed: If your bed isn’t high enough off the ground to store bins underneath, buy a bed lift to raise it just enough to make use of that under-bed space. You can also buy bins that are constructed specifically to fit underneath beds.

5. Strategic Furniture: Besides purchasing furniture that will create the illusion of more space (think glass tables and couches with small legs), you can position your furniture to create mini-rooms within your apartment to organize the flow of your space.

10. Angled Furniture: Angle furniture, such as chairs, in the corner of the room and use the space behind it to store baskets of things you can’t find space for (like that CD collection you can’t bring yourself to get rid of).

MJ is a songwriter and local musician, freelance writer, baseball enthusiast, lover of travel, and a terrible mechanic. When MJ graduated from Central Michigan University with a degree in Creative Writing, he was immediately barraged with 'questions' of "What are you gonna do, teach?" He is determined to not get a job teaching. So far, so good. With music, MJ's traveled the country touring on his songs. Having spent time in places from Chicago to Seattle, LA to New Orleans, and Nashville to NYC, he is convinced that Detroit and its 'burbs have the the highest concentration of 'native' songwriting talent anywhere. Eat it, New York. You too, LA. MJ started writing for the Urbane Life in the summer of 2011. He also writes for a handful of other websites as well as an immigration lawyer. He used to work in a publishing house. He's glad he's out.
