Creative Storage Ideas for Your Student Housing Room

Creative Storage Ideas for Your Student Housing Room
Created By: Ola ElWassifyon 04 June, 2017

Casita offers a variety of student accommodation across the UK and finding the perfect place for you has never been easier. Most of our accommodation are fully furnished and well-equipped with storage space to store your belongings. But no matter what we do, we always leave extra space for students to use freely. Every individual has different needs that he wants to fulfil. Consider these creative storage hacks in order to save more space and create your home away from home at our Casita accommodation:

1. Wardrobe

The first thing that burdens students while moving is clothes. In order to get started with organizing them, you need to consider what to fold and what to hang. You should hang dresses, blouses, trousers and dress pants, jackets, blazers, coats, skirts, and scarves. You should fold t-shirts, knitwear, and jeans. Sportswear is to be folded as well. Considering having a hanging organizer to store your beddings and towels is great. Also, you can buy boxes to be put in the closet and store your foldable clothes separately. Label your boxes to find your stuff easily. 

Extra Tip: Store your purses/backpacks in the hanging organizer inside your wardrobe.

2. Bedroom

Bedrooms hold most of your belongings, and if you did not organize it creatively, you will suffer from late mornings because of not finding the things that you need quickly. Extra rolling drawers will make your life much easier; notebook holders, hanging shelves, pouffes with storage, and bedside caddies will also be great assets. You can create more space wherever you want. You can store your belongings easily and find them fast as well. Most of Casita student accommodation comes with smart storage space, putting students’ needs in mind while designing the rooms, so make sure to pick those. Use your under-bed storage wisely, and buy extra boxes to store more stuff under your bed. 

3. Workspace

You do not need to worry about this area at all since all of our accommodation come with generous study areas with enough space to meet your needs and store all of your books and notes. But if you have a lot of papers that need to be organized, consider using binder clips with a sticker to label clusters of papers and find them easily. A shoebox could serve as a charging station, to get rid of all the messy wires. In order to prevent storing extra stuff that you will only use once, consider using sticky notes and pinboards instead of using notebooks. 

Extra Tip: Empty jam or sauce jars could be used as pen holders. You can decorate and colour them too. 

4. Bathroom

Put a shelf above your bathroom door and store a bunch of stuff. You can also buy a plastic storage cabinet for your personal products. Pocket organizers could be hanged at the back of your bathroom door, holding your cleaning products. A mirrored cabinet is very convenient for small bathrooms as well. Keep an extra empty basket nearby to collect laundry clothes in, so they won’t be mixed with your clean clothes. Use a basket to put whatever you might need while bathing, such as a book or a magazine.

5. Kitchen

As mentioned before, using pocket organizers is the best, whether it is your private kitchen in your self-contained studio or a shared kitchen with flatmates. You can even label pockets to know whose pocket is that. Old jars could be used as spices storage, or for tea, coffee, sugar, etc. Remember to label the jars right away in order not to forget what is inside. Again, a plastic rolling drawer will be beneficial when used for storing canned food, etc. 

Extra Tip: If you want your beverage to get cold quickly, wrap it in a wet tissue before putting it in the freezer.
