A studio apartment – how to fit everything into a small space?
Without a doubt, in a small apartment every centimeter of space counts. There is no room for unnecessary things, and yet you certainly have a lot of items that need to be stored somehow. Is it doomed to failure in advance and you will be faced with a mess? Not necessarily! Check out the bachelor pad storage tricks that will make your life easier and forget about the clutter!
First of all, it’s time to tidy up!
There are no miracles, so before you even think about organizing your bachelor pad, start with a thorough cleaning. Getting rid of excess items will make your task easier. For a successful tidy up, make a plan of action and, meter by meter, tidy up! Many people start by tidying up their clothes, which makes a lot of sense, especially as we often accumulate a lot of clothes and accessories. You can also save a lot of space by cleaning out your kitchen cupboards and cosmetics. The hardest thing to get rid of are items with sentimental value, but it’s not impossible!
Custom furniture is a great option
If you can afford to furnish a studio apartment from A to Z, it is a very good idea to invest in custom furniture. Such furniture is tailored to your needs and will be great for storage. You can design your closets or kitchen furniture in such a way that not even a centimeter is wasted. The ceiling-to-floor cabinetry is a very practical thing to do. In addition, designing custom furniture, you can ensure that the apartment does not lack cabinets and drawers.

Bed with storage space
This is a piece of furniture that can be very helpful when it comes to storage. A bed equipped with a chest or a pull-out drawer is a great idea, because you can confidently hide there, for example, bedding, blankets, pillows or whatever you want. There’s plenty of space underneath the mattress to make use of it. By the way, it’s worth noting that you can also hide quite a lot inside a sofa bed. If you choose this type of sofa, you’ll have a lot of space inside.
Baskets and containers
There is no doubt that baskets and containers are a great help when it comes to storing small things. Not only on the internet but also in many chain stores you will find these types of items that will greatly improve storage in your bachelor pad and beyond. Bins work especially well in rooms like the kitchen and bathroom, but not only there. Larger baskets store more than just small things – they’re invaluable when it comes to children’s toys, for example. Plus, baskets and containers can be a design element!
