1. Place a love seat in your living room if you don't have the space for big couch or sofa. It'll provide comfortable seating *and* be a compact piece of furniture in your apartment.
2. And get a coffee table for your indoor greenery collection: It has a sturdy surface for your plant babies and other things you love to keep on hand (hello magazines and remotes).
3. Stash knitting gear and other cozy amenities, like blankets, in a decorative basket. Even better, have it by a fave window nook or seating area for times when you want to chill.
4. Display an "invisible" shelf on your living room wall to show off your favorite reads. Did we also mention that it makes a great replacement for a bulky bookcase?
5. Place your TV on a storage-friendly stand whenever you want to have a binge-watching marathon. You'll have so much room for your streaming devices and create an accessible entertainment hub, even you're not actually at a movie theater.
6. Maximize your bedroom floor plan with a storage-friendly bed that'll be great for catching up on sleep *and* storing your seasonal accessories, clothes, and shoes.
7. Slide a book and sleeping mask into a bedside caddy that'll be super convenient for your pre-bedtime routine. The best part? You won't have to slip off the covers to get what you need.
8. And use a decorative pillow to make your bed a focal point, and even have it propped against a wall or window.
9. Attach a foldable desk to your bedroom wall if you want a flexible working space that doubles up as a tech zone. It comes with plenty of shelves for writing supplies and can be folded up whenever you're not using it.
10. Apply makeup and store jewelry with a hanging mirror, which might make your bedroom look spacious, even if you're tight on square footage.
11. Hang all your outerwear, clothes, and pants on a sturdy garment rack. This storage solution can be a big help if you don't have a closet or need more room for your wardrobe.
12. Display your favorite plant babies in macrame hangers. They add a touch of greenery to your bedroom and won't clutter your windowsill.
13. Enjoy your meals and still have a lot of room in your kitchen with a small dining set. That tiny corner you've been waiting to use can finally get the revamp it deserves.
14. Line up sauces and spices on a nonskid shelf (or two). You'll finally have all your cooking essentials in one convenient spot because kitchen space is precious.
15. Organize food storage lids in a space-savvy container, because it's been a minute since you've found the right plastic bowl cover for your leftovers.
16. Keep a foldable trash can on the side of your stove or sink cabinet, so you don't have to place a stinky garbage bin in your tiny kitchen area.
17. Reduce clutter in your bathroom with a compact bathroom shelf: It easily fits over your throne and holds a lot of cleaning supplies and toiletries. Plus, you won't have to worry about a roll of toilet paper falling on you again.
18. Hang up a space-saving shower curtain that comes with plenty of pockets for shampoo, conditioners, and soap: The days of using the side of your tub or window ledge for "storage" are over.
19. Arrange shoes inside a storage rack, so your entryway will be free from clutter. You don't want anyone to trip over rain boots or sneakers when they walk through the door.
20. And mount a hook rack that'll hold purses and backpacks. All your accessories will *finally* have a convenient resting place whenever you're getting ready to leave.
You, with a now *spacious* apartment or studio:
