So you’ve moved into a new apartment, but lo and behold, there are no built-in cupboards or wardrobes. As much as this can seem a frustrating and annoying domestic issue to deal with, it certainly doesn’t mean your home has to be impractical or inefficient.

From making the most out of awkward nooks to employing the latest in stylish clothes racks, we have a solution for you! Read on to learn more about how you can give your dwelling an overhaul, by checking out the impressive stylistic options below.

1. Under the bed

While only suitable for storing clothes you don't mind folding, under-bed boxes are a fantastic way to free up space in the rest of your room. If you're not keen to store larger garments like this, it's still a great solution for underwear and spare bedding—and with a snug lid, you're guaranteed to keep dust at bay!

All you can possibly need to create the ideal organised and minimal sleeping quarters is this all-in-one compact piece of furniture. Featuring a space for clothing, books, and all other bedroom accoutrements, we adore this impressive feature.
