Organization for Small Spaces

If you're living in an apartment that doesn't have a whole lot of storage space, these are going to be your best life hacks to keep you from feeling like you're wading through a mess to get to your bed!

With space as a concern, consolidating the amount of furniture and storage pieces you have in your room is of top priority. This under bed DIY wooden box tucks a handy storage compartment under your mattress, opening up prime real estate in your bedroom for other items!

You could also use this project to store books, shoes, extra pillows and blankets, or any other clunky items that tend to eat up your closet space. 

DIY Bed Risers

Bed frames take up more space than you might think, and if you're someone who rents an apartment and moves around by the year, they can be quite cumbersome during the moving process. This DIY bed risers project takes those problems away by turning a simple box spring and mattress into an elevated bed with room beneath to store some of your items. This project is easy, light-weight and won't eat up any more space than you need it to.

Plus, all of your clothes will be right on display for your choosing, making your morning routine that much easier.

Pant Hanger DIY Belt Organizer

Honestly, before this project, what did we even do with our belts?

This DIY bedroom organizing idea puts all of your belts on one convenient hanger, making them easily available. You can hang this DIY belt organizer on a hook on the back of your door for optimal space saving.

DIY Hanging Photo Shelf

(NOTE: be conscious of the weight limit these shelves can support, don't over-stuff them!)
