If you share an apartment with a few roommates, you know how hard it might be to navigate the shared rooms and common areas. While everyone has their own room, the kitchen, bathrooms, and living areas are usually shared. Sharing this space could be frustrating even if you live with your close friend or spouse. Luckily, you can take measures to arrange how to share your space so everyone is aware of the right boundaries. Read on for a couple of pointers on using shared living space in your apartment unit!
Sharing Closets is Unavoidable
While sharing closets, making sure everyone gets the same amount of closet space is important. Hang the vertical cloth shelves for towel and sheet storage and create a partition to generate some extra space in the closet. You could also use accessories that organize and divide the closet space too.
You May Also Share Some Wall Space
Walls in common areas are also included in your shared residential spaces. Do not hang up paintings without first consulting with your roommates. Making wall decorating a group effort could help you and your partner be happy with the decorations.
Try Out These Space-Saving Methods
You’re able to spend money on some sophisticated organizational items, but sometimes the very basics are the best choices. These important tools can help you in transforming shared housing spaces into a structured and organized environment.
- Hooks to hang keys and extra towels in the bathroom or doorway
- Winter gloves, scarves, and cosmetics could all be stored in your shoe boxes.
- Luggage and coats can be stored in over-the-door hangers.
- Underneath the bed storage bins are smart for keeping any out-of-season apparel that can’t be stored somewhere else
- Creating a structure and talking openly allows you and your roommates to live in peace while sharing your apartment unit spaces.
