 Firstly, clever designing goes a long way in using space efficiently when it comes to proper utilization of a closet or wardrobe in a small apartment. You can replace the usual swing out doors with curtains or hanging screens or sliding shutters.

 It’s always good to decide what clothes you want to wear the present season so that you can store them close at hand or on lower shelves. For the rest just stash them away in lidded bins or organizers, on higher shelves or top of the closet! Check out our super cool products to help you: http://tinyurl.com/l3e3cen

Use the backside of your closet doors to hang stuff. You can go for simple hooks or steel racks specially to support sports equipment! Using a pegboard is also a great idea or fixing hooks on the rods to hang bags can be extremely useful.

CREATIVE IDEAS FOR A SMALL NURSERY

The adventure of parenthood is perhaps the most exhilarating experience ever! The planning for the baby’s room, splurging on all those cute little clothes and toys, deciding the name of your angel, your hopes and dreams and that seemingly endless wait till the baby arrives…

So why let the size of the nursery dishearten you when the space in your heart is big enough? Living in metropolitan cities very often deprives us of adequate space for everything. But here we bring you some great décor and organization ideas for small nurseries…

When the wall of a nursery is as captivating as the images you see above, they help divert attention from the size of the room! Needless to say, wall decals or stickers liven up plain, blank walls and are visually stimulating for the baby too. See more: http://tinyurl.com/qyplf2o; http://tinyurl.com/o2zkh4t

Closed low cabinets efficiently hide clutter and the top can act as a stand for little odds and ends. Drawers under the crib are really helpful when it comes to storing blankets, bedding or extra clothes.

If you have some space for a simple closet or wall unit, then nothing like it. See how some simple rods, racks and bins can solve the perennial problem of storage! Labeling each bin will help recognize which contains what. And we love the gorgeous combination of pink and grey in the second nursery too 🙂 See more: http://tinyurl.com/op3t84l

Use the vertical space as much as possible to save on floor area. This way there will be fewer things to bump into when you move about! Simple open shelves, hooks and rods can support most of the stuff as you can see above. The top of a traditional dresser can easily become a changing station. Don’t miss the dark blue walls in the second nursery. Though dark colors are usually perceived to make small rooms appear smaller, we beg to differ…it can provide an illusion of depth and an interesting background for light colored furniture.

If you are still confused about the décor, going for light colored walls and furnishing is a safe bet…the room will appear bright and airy too. Still, we suggest, listen to your heart and do what is best for your little one…you can never go wrong 🙂

HOW TO DE-CLUTTER YOUR BEDROOM…

Your bedroom is a place where you relax, unwind, and let your hair down. So it goes without saying that a clean and tidy room will always look more inviting than a shabby one, when you come home exhausted after a tiring day! This is exactly the reason why it’s crucial to control chaos in the bedroom and get organized…here are some great tips:

The traditional closet is always the first resort for most of us. A bit of clever designing can create adequate space…racks for hanging clothes, place for keeping folded items, closed cabinets, drawers for more delicate things, open shelves to hold bins which can house all the little odds and ends…

A very ingenious way to create more space to contain clutter is having a headboard which is also a wall unit! This trick uses more of the vertical space and does not encroach on the precious floor area. You can store anything you want here or even display some artifacts. Use pretty storage boxes if you don’t want everyone to walk in on your stuff 🙂

Under the bed storage is another great idea to utilize limited legroom.  If your bed comes with drawers, great! If not, don’t worry…using some sober, coordinated bins can rise to the occasion very well. Use lidded ones to keep dust at bay and this way, you can store all your bedspreads, woolens or summer clothes without stuffing your wardrobe.

The simple bedside table has potential too…if it’s like a simple shelf or cubby, you can place the night lamp on the top and line up some bins underneath, just like a multifunctional piece of furniture!

The same goes for a window seat or bench with some space below. Just a couple of matching chic bins or baskets will hide mess and be visually pleasing at the same time…
