• Make the Most of Your Apartment

    Tonti knows Apartment Living!  Over the years, our residents have shared some great life hacks that really help maximize space and minimize clutter.  Check out our top 5 tips below:
    • Get a lift. If your bed isn’t tall enough for storage bins to slide underneath, these handy bed risers will clear the way for some additional storage space and give you two extra power outlets for plugging in lamps and the like.
    • Rotate your clothing. No need to dig through heavy coats to get to your shorts in the summer.  Utilize Tonti’s on-site storage options and box up out-of-season clothing while not in use. It saves space and makes finding clothes easier.
    • Double down, with multi-purpose furniture that is. Make your furniture really count by purchasing items with built in storage. Ottomans, benches and stools can all be used for seating and stashing goods.
    • Hang shelving high, ceiling height even.  Not only does it draw the eye upward and make the space feel larger, but it maximizes unused storage space allowing you to store the things you want to hang onto but don’t need to put your hands on every day.
    • Cleanup your cleansers. A simple over the door shoe organizer like this one can be used on a pantry or laundry area door to free up cabinets and make finding your household cleansers a breeze.
      Happy organizing!
