One challenge facing property owners is selling small spaces to people who are looking for somewhere to drop a lifetime’s worth of stuff. Clothes, art, kitchen supplies, entertainment devices, it’s an endless collection of things that need somewhere to go. If your property doesn’t have a place for at least most of it, there is a good chance that a potential tenant won’t give your rental property much thought.

Many people are willing to pay more for the storage that they want or need, and the convenience that it offers. Without expanding your property, how do you give tenants the space and room to spread out and live comfortably? These tips come from modern storage ideas; they are designed to allow as much to happen in one place as possible.

Hanging Storage

Pots and pans take up a lot of room. Entire cabinets, even, and if your tenants like to cook, then they’ll probably have a wide disparity of cooking utensils. A hanging pot rack is a number one requirement in Tiny Homes as it keeps floor space clear and allows any cabinet space to be free for other things.

Hanging racks can be used for a lot of things besides pots and pans. Clothing, shoes, plants, and even bicycles can be suspended from the ceiling, and smaller things like mugs or wine glasses can be suspended from under cabinets and shelves.  If your property is lacking in cabinet space, offering these hooks can be a good way to provide quick and easy storage to your potential tenants.

Storage Room Dividers

Room dividers are a classy way that studio apartments try to seem less ‘studio.’ A lot of people are not completely comfortable sleeping out in the open and opt for room dividers for a bit of décor and separation from the rest of the mess. These dividers can be a beaded curtain or a folding paper stand, or they can offer somewhere to put your pile of books and pictures.

Bookshelf dividers, cube organizers, and thin standing cabinets are easy ways to create hallways or other forms of separation if you’re looking to update a floorplan without building actual walls. These storage room dividers can be relatively inexpensive depending on where they are bought and easy to make aesthetically pleasing for a tenant tour.

Collapsible Furniture

Lofted beds are an Instagram favorite. They’re aesthetic and offer plenty of floor room under them, but without high ceilings can be impossible or at least very difficult to utilize. Unless you’re planning on asking all tenants to tuck and roll every single night, if you don’t have high ceilings it may be best to seek an alternative. Murphy bed frames have come a long way over the years. They can be great space saving alternatives with floating shelves and beautiful designs that fold out from the wall studs.  Get a faux wood paneled double door murphy bed, or even combine with the floating storage with lofted beds that lower from the ceiling.

If you’re thinking of offering a furnished unit, look into other forms of collapsible furniture. Some coffee tables can convert into full sized dining tables. There are also desks and tables that are designed to be wall mounted and fold down once in use and put away afterwards.

Many property owners don’t have the option to expand their actual land or rentable spaces. When that’s not available, it’s time to get creative. Just because the physical space is small doesn’t mean there’s finite amount you can do to improve.
