Best Use of Space in Apartment Contest

We wrote a few years back about having an Apartment Decorating Contest for your community residents. But with the current minimalist and KonMari craze, you can also have fun showcasing how residents are putting their organizing skills to good use at home!

Besides submitting their stylized pictures of different rooms, residents can share up close and personal shots of their organized cabinets, cupboards, and closet spaces.

This is a fantastic way to show off all the storage your units offer. It can also generate some high-quality and personalized images to use in your community’s marketing.

Residents can submit their apartment decorating and design pictures of their styled apartments. But also let them write a brief description or essay about how they stay organized at home.


Use these photos for your marketing materials. Just be sure to get full permission to do so from winning residents.

Choose winners for the best organizing skills in different categories. Judge each area of their home separately. Residents can submit images for each category.

Best use of space categories can include:

  • Kitchen
  • Dining room
  • Storage
  • Balcony or patio
  • Living room
  • Bathroom
  • Master bedroom
  • Kid’s/Teen’s room
  • Home office
  • Bonus room!


Prizes can include gift certificates to your local improvement, decorating, or import store. You might also consider offering a family photography session with a local photographer stylized in your resident’s own home!

***BONUS*** For your domestically challenged residents, consider choosing a consolation prize for the most disorganized space. Offer to connect residents with the services of a local professional organizer at a discounted rate.

Their before and after images would be inspirational and are a great way to include all your residents in the event—even those that don’t start with picture-perfect homes.
