Get organized in 2019! Clean up your living and relaxing space in your Madison New Britain apartment here in Chalfont, PA by finding a place to store all your things. Try these apartment storage options that double as furniture or other functional pieces in your home this year.

Ottomans

These multi-functional pieces of furniture will come in handy whether you’re hosting friends or cuddling up on the couch by yourself. You can use an ottoman to complete the design of a room, to add space for resting your feet, to add extra seating to a room, and to give you a place to put blankets and pillows you don’t have room to keep on the couch. Wayfair has more than a thousand storage ottoman options you can look through for just the right one.

Hanging Space

Cupboard and cabinet space is often limited in apartments, requiring a little creativity on your part to find a space for all your pots and pans. Check out this post from The Kitchn on 10 Smart Places to Put a Pot Rack to get ideas of how to pull this off. You can also use command hooks on the outsides of your cabinets and on the walls in your kitchen to hang smaller items, such as spoons

Bookshelves

A bookshelf is a classic way to display not only your books, but also other trinkets, framed photos, or small art pieces that warrant their own space. There are plenty of ways you can do this, from choosing an unconventional bookcase that is itself a decoration to mixing up the book placement, arranging the books by color, or adding something natural (like a plant) to a shelf. Design Sponge has 10 homes that get styling a bookshelf right, plus five tips for your own that you can gain inspiration from as you look for creative ways to style your bookshelf so it can hold more than just books.
