How to Organize a One-Bedroom Apartment


Without a plan, keeping your place organized can seem like an endless chore. Slacking on housework for even a day can make your one-bedroom apartment feel cramped and uninviting. Staying organized means prioritizing where everything in your home needs to go, and sticking to the boundaries you create for each room. Using the existing space in your home and making modifications to your habits can help you keep your home organized and clean.


Use wall shelving to get things off your floor and give you more space without sacrificing storage. The Home Organizing Ideas website suggests using vertical shelves to use more wall space. If you are renting, be sure to check your lease or speak with your landlord before you put any permanent holes in the walls.

Invest in a small folding desk and a simple desk chair that can easily be moved out of sight. This will give you an officelike area in your living area that can be stored to make space for times when you entertain guests. If you have a desktop computer or need a more permanent in-home workspace, put a small desk and chair in a quiet corner of the room or in your bedroom where the rest of the furniture will not be disturbed.


Get rid of any unnecessary items, such as used books that you aren’t going to reread, newspapers, clothes that no longer fit and kitchenware that goes unused. If your clothes and other items are in good condition, consider donating items to a nonprofit organization. Getting rid of the things that just sit in your home untouched will free up space for the things you use the most.

Keep personal items such as laundry baskets in your bedroom closet. This will help keep your personal items out of sight for guests. No one wants to look at your dirty laundry over coffee or on game night. If you do not use a laundry hamper or basket, invest in one. Keeping your laundry organized is important in keeping your apartment clean.
