How you organize your Bloomington apartment determines how you feel in your living space. It’s difficult to entertain, relax, or focus well when you’ve got stuff everywhere. A neat, ordered area feels more cozy and satisfying. If you want to change things up and get a new start in your home, try these apartment organization ideas for Bloomington.

Use Dividers To Sort Things In Drawers

If you’re always searching through drawers for things, get sorted out with drawer dividers. You can use various dividers, utensil organizers, and trays to keep your stuff sorted. Put them in bathroom, kitchen, desk, and dresser drawers – places where you have lots of small things rolling around. You won’t have to dig around in your junk drawer again if everything is organized! You can buy pre-made dividers at any big-box store or make your own with plastic storage containers and shoes boxes.

Clean Up Your Kitchen And Bathroom Countertops

Most apartment floor plans don’t have an area for large bathroom and kitchen countertops. Keeping your countertops clean gives you more counter space. To declutter, begin by choosing a new home for stuff that shouldn’t stay on the counter. Then put anything remaining in attractive, functional containers such as trendy jars for baking supplies or a decorative tiered tray for bathroom toiletries.

Keep The Tub Tidy With Hooks And Caddies

Whether you share your bathroom with your family or roommates, the tub or shower can get cluttered quickly with everybody’s bath toys, shampoo, and soap. You can organize everything with shower caddies and temporary adhesive hooks. First, throw away anything no one wants. Then give each person a stick-on hook for their loofa or washcloth and caddy compartments for their toys and toiletries. You’ll like how much tidier the bathtub looks without bottles and rubber duckies everywhere.

Pull Out Clutter From Under Beds

Keeping stuff under under beds is a smart idea–until you forget what you stashed. Drag everything out from under your bed and throw away anything you don’t need. Reorganize the remaining items into vacuum-sealed bags or under-the-bed storage containers with lids to keep dust away. You may even find more space to store away items from other places that could use a new home.

Make A Station For Pet Storage

If your apartment is pet-friendly, you need a place to store your furry friend’s supplies. You can create a pet storage station using a small bookcase or cabinet to put your pet’s things. Put toys in a basket down low where Fido can find them and food in a pet-proof container out of reach. Install wall hooks for collars and leashes, and you’ll always be prepared for a last-minute walk outside.

Use Your Walls To Make More Storage

Lots of apartment organization ideas for Bloomington take it for granted that you have adequate built-in storage. But if storage is one great amenity your apartment lacks, you might have difficulty finding places to put things during your reorganization. In that case, to think outside the box with your wall space. Install floating shelves, use adhesive hooks, or replace short bookshelves with tall ones to create more storage in every room. It’s amazing how much space you’ll save with a simple hanging storage bin for mail and hook for keys.
