4 Space-Saving Tips For a Small Apartment
Owning a home is becoming increasingly expensive, so Millennials are finding creative ways to transform even the tiniest of spaces into comfortable living places.
With the many benefits associated with small space living (i.e., low maintenance, cheaper rent, etc.), the major disadvantage is the lack of space.
So, if you’re living in a tiny apartment or shoebox home, here are 4 simple tips to help you to make the most of your space:
1. Use built-in furniture
The good thing about built-in furniture is more space. Many small apartments come with in-built furniture such as wardrobes, kitchen islands, countertops, etc.
If you share a small apartment with a roommate, you can turn your kitchen countertop into an improvised dining table so you wouldn’t need extra furniture. All you will need are a couple of high stools, and you’re good to go.
2. Don’t buy things you don’t need
You have to resist the urge to buy the stuff you don’t really need if you live in a small apartment. The small things can pile up over time.
So, think twice before buying those extra pairs of shoes or that bag you don’t plan on using anytime soon.
3. Make use of wall shelves
One of the best ways to save space and keep a small apartment organized is building wall shelves. Wall shelves help to keep your living space organized by giving you a place to keep those small-sized possessions that you keep misplacing.
They can also be used to keep your books well organized. Another advantage of wall shelves is the fact that they can be used for decorative purposes.
4. Seek professional help
If you are moving into a small apartment or planning to build a tiny house yourself, seek professional help. Scenario Architecture, for example, delivers ambitious living spaces for people looking to make use of space creatively.
If you are a family or a couple, I would highly recommend working with architects. They will help you to design your small space in a way that it feels big and stylish.
