3 Quick Hacks To Keep Your Apartment Tidy

If you've recently moved into your studio apartment, you may be under the impression that a small space is much easier to maintain, but unfortunately, you're wrong. The main problem with a small apartment is that it can become overcrowded, which will make your living space look untidy, and cleaning standards will start to slip. To avoid facing a messy apartment after a long day at work, you should take a look at these top hacks, which will help you keep your small space clean and tidy, whether you are renting an apartment in London or a studio rental Houston TX. No one likes a cluttered environment, do they?

Choose the right furnishings 

If you have not yet furnished your property, then you need to make sure that the items you choose are the perfect fit. For example, if you're planning to buy a new sofa for your living room, you should measure the area where you want it to be and then narrow down your search with your exact measurements. This way, you can fit in more furnishings without overloading your space, which will make even the smallest studio apartment look spacious.

In the bathroom, for example, think of storage options, like cabinets to keep your personal items out of reach of children, bathroom storage baskets to keep towels tidy and hooks on the back of doors to air towels and hang up clothes.

To help you select the right decor for your apartment, you should take a look at the luxury studio apartments available at RW Invest, which feature the perfect size furniture that helps to maximise the space. Tenants can easily keep their apartments clean and tidy due to the well-thought-out layout, which prevents their space from looking congested.

Clear your clutter 

Once you’ve moved in all your belongings and decor, you will begin to realise that your space is just not big enough for everything. More than likely, you will not need everything that you've moved in with, so you should get rid of some items that aren't needed. One of the main areas that tends to gather clutter is the kitchen, as a lot of people tend to place all of their mugs (both dirty and clean) on the kitchen counter. In a studio apartment, you will not have the cupboard space to store your cups, so they will take up counter space instead. This can make your apartment look extremely untidy, so you should consider getting rid of older mugs or utensils, and just keeping a small amount that you use every day.

You may find it hard to part with some of your items, especially if you're a nostalgic hoarder. To help you kick this habit, you should make a pile of necessary items, and whatever is not needed should be either thrown away or donated, depending on its condition. This way, you can make more room for new decor or keep it simple by following the popular minimalist trend that will enhance the look of your home.

Organise important paperwork 

One thing that you will need to keep in your apartment is paperwork, such as utility bills, car insurance documents, or your tenancy agreement. When moving in, these types of documents tend to be forgotten about and are thrown to the side, making them extremely difficult to find later on.

Instead of just tossing them to the side, you should organise them as soon as possible. You could either place them in a folder and store it in your bedroom cabinet, or you purchase filing storage and label it so you can see what you're looking for straight away. This will help you organise your life and also make your apartment look neat and put together.

  1. Great tips!
    We have way to much stuff and it drives me nuts!
    I need to declutter but I end up moving it into a space hoping to sell it!

  2. Really great ideas! You’ve reminded me that I really need to sort my paperwork out - I have a huge pile of it in a basket that has just mounted up! I always feel so much better when I’m organised with it, so need to have a sort very soon! X
