Storage and organization is a challenge for any condo owner.  Make the most of your space with these helpful tips.

Utilize vertical storage units and accessories in your living spaces to free up floor area. Install bookshelves vertically and use baskets within them to keep clutter at bay.

Vertical storage options are also perfect for the kitchen; install cabinetry straight to the ceiling to maximize storage. Horizontal rods can be installed on backsplashes to hold utensils or containers.

Select double duty furniture, purchase an ottoman with built in storage, a chest as a coffee table or a bed frame that has drawers so you can store clothes versus having a chest of drawers.

Consider furniture and electronics with slim profiles to make for easy stowing. Flat screen televisions can be wall mounted and a fold-away wall mounted desk is the perfect home office option.

Storage

Clutter reduction is vital in small spaces. Careful planning of purchases will ensure buying out of necessity rather than want.

Fortunately, with the rise of smaller built condos, there has also been an increase of furniture stores that offer more ‘condo-sized’ options.

So if you are in the market for some new practical and trendy pieces it might be worth your while to check them out first.
