space savers

Those of us who live in apartments or small condos feel each other's pain. Not only is storage often an issue, but simply having space for furniture and decor can be a challenge. Here are a few ideas I've been mulling over —
  • Try smaller, more efficient furniture
This post was inspired by this nightstand alternative that I noticed recently on Apartment Therapy — convenient and cute:

  • Make use of every nook and cranny.
And this made me think of other ways we can create more livable space. Have you ever tried these?

Having a higher bed would feel more luxurious, and we'd have double the storage area to boot. The only issue is disguising the totes, since an average bedskirt wouldn't do the job. Maybe a custom-made skirt is in order?
  • Get creative.
This also seems smart:

Using over-the-door shoe racks to store miscellaneous junk drawer items, tools, office supplies, or other annoying little things that have no real place.

How do you make the most of your space?
