How To Maximize Space In A Rental Apartment

Finding space for all the trinkets that make up our lives can be difficult when living in a studio or one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco, but we’re here to help. Rental apartments can be particularly challenging as you can’t be too invasive with modifications. Throughout our years in the industry, we’ve rounded up the most helpful storage tips and tricks on maximizing space.


The first step should be to minimize clutter. Á la Marie Kondo, look at what you have and eliminate what is unnecessary to your life and happiness. You may feel tempted to keep it “just in case,” but remember it only takes up valuable space.


A great tip to maximize space in an apartment is to go up; take up as much vertical space as possible and give it a purpose. Using no-drill hooks, you can optimize your vertical living space with an aesthetically tall bookshelf or install floating shelves.


Try to buy dual-purpose furniture or make furniture choices that will offer you storage options to maximize your living space. Popular options include seats, tables, couches, or beds with hidden compartments where you can store things and avoid clutter.
