Kitchen island cart
Living in a small apartment means needing clever studio apartment storage ideas. Your kitchen may not be big enough for a sprawling island, but a small kitchen cart can work wonders. It doesn’t take up much room while providing needed storage and work space.
@anaisazacarpio painted her kitchen cart pink and added faux marble peel and stick benchtop paper to give it a custom look. The lower shelves hold kids’ snacks in baskets for easy access while keeping the unattractive packaging hidden away.
Crate storage divider
Room dividers section off a studio apartment into separate sleeping and living zones. This room divider by @makingmanzanita pulls double duty because the open crates can be used as storage. Alternate the direction of the crates to permit storage on both sides of the divider.
Once you decide on the configuration, nail the crates together starting at the bottom. Then secure the divider to the wall.
Short on cabinet space? A pegboard is an easy way to turn wall space into storage, and the shelves and pegs can be rearranged as needed.
In her kitchen, @joannajwestwood uses this cute wood pegboard to hold mugs, decor and other essentials. A pegboard is a great choice for renters because it minimises damage to the wall, and you can take it with you when you move.
