Moving Into a Small Apartment

If the space you’re moving into is a small one, you’ll have to learn how to maximize it and use it to your benefit. Just because you home is small doesn’t mean you can’t live comfortably. There are always things to do to make your space cozy, charming, inviting and practical on a day-to-day basis.

First think about how you go about your day. Make a mental list of the things you do at home and how you spend your time in it. This will allow you to really focus on the activities that are most important to you, allocating the space they happen with the most attention. For example, if inviting friends over for dinner is something you do regularly, than having a spot to place a dining room table and a few chairs is important. Inviting them over to eat over the counter in the kitchen would be out of the question for you.

Set up a budget for supplies and decorating accents as well as furniture. You might want to buy certain shelves to help with storage since it’s a small space. Even if shelves are less expensive than cabinets to hold your personal belongings, they’re still going to cost you. It’s a good idea to know how much you want to spend on making your new small space a home. Think about entertaining, your office space if you want one, and so on. Just remember to devote the most space to the activity that’s most important to you.

When you purchase furniture or décor for the house, think multi-purpose, foldable, minimalistic in style. For example, an armoire can open and have a computer inside, a couch can be a futon as well for guest and so on.

Stores like The Container Store or Pottery Barn can help you find ways of storing things in a fashionable way, making the storage a part of the décor of your home. So try to visit them online first and see if you like some of their ideas.
