Small Apartment Storage Tips

Smart Solutions for Studio Living

Moving to a Louisville studio apartment? Wondering where you’ll put all your stuff? We’ve got some tips on how to maximize your storage space in a small apartment. 

Buy a Storage Ottoman

A storage ottoman or upholstered storage bench can hold bed linens, sporting equipment, or other items that you don’t use every day. Plus, these pieces provide seating for guests and are easy to move, if you want to rearrange your furniture. 

Repurpose the Dishwasher

When you live alone, it might be a week or more before you dirty enough dishes to fill a dishwasher. If you find it’s easier to hand-wash dishes, use your dishwasher to store your clean dishes and glassware, and you can store other items in your kitchen cabinets.

Use Your Doors

If you need a place to put a broom, a backpack, or a dog leash, get an inexpensive over-the-door hook. You can easily move or reposition hooks as needed. And if you need a place to put your shoes, buy an over-the-door shoe holder. 

Make Use of Dead Space

A space under a sofa, bed, or dresser can be a storage area. Most big-box retailers sell plastic storage bins specifically for this purpose. 


Think of how you can use all of the vertical space available in your linen closet and on the shelves in your walk-in closet. That could mean placing an organizer, rack, or storage baskets on shelves. Takes some measurements at home, grab your tape measure, and head to Mall St. Matthews to find a solution.
