Moving into a New Apartment
Congratulations on making the move into a new apartment! We are sure that you are finding the move to not have been as challenging and recalibration to your life with a few more responsibilities not so daunting. But now you are looking to improve the look of your new place and make it more spacious. After having officially moved in and all. This is a very common complaint of many people who get their first apartment, but never fear, we at www.aptsaver.com are here! Below we have listed different ways to maximize the space out of your apartment and make it all the more comfortable and minimize the stress that could come of the smaller quarters.
Make Your Apartment Bedroom Smaller
Instead of cramming all the stuff (much of it unnecessary, right?) in your smaller bedroom, consider just having the necessities. Possibly, just your bed, TV, and a nightstand. Think about it from this perspective too, that is where you relax and fall asleep. You don’t want to have so much stuff stressing you out that you will, guaranteed, eventually have to deal with. The best approach is to not bring it in at all, but if you have already moved in, then our recommendation is to set aside a small amount of time and do some spring cleaning.
Next! Your Bathroom
Take it from us, nothing is worse when you are flying around your apartment, getting ready for the day and knocking stuff over with every move. It is even worse when it is just decorative items. Like your bedroom, we suggest finding a new place for your decorative items, preferably in a place where they won’t hinder you as you are getting ready.
Your Living Room
Perhaps you are in a place where you just moved and your budget is too sore to start accumulating a bunch of decorations. If so, and you still want to make your living room larger, no problem. You may very much like an L-shaped couch or a daybed that you can also use for a couch and sleeping space if you have a friend or family member that wants to spend the night. You may also want to consider buying second-hand furniture that has been reupholstered and recovered as a budget-friendly option until you save up the money to buy something that fits you better. Also, think about swapping a large, ornate ottoman for something smaller and more trendy to give it the modern kick.
Decorating Your Kitchen
So a dining table the size of the one at your parents’ house doesn’t fit, eh? Don’t worry about it! Some more more modern apartments may have a bar area near the kitchen or a small island, but if you don’t have either of those, you can still likely pull up a chair on the other side of your counter or buy a trendy high-top table and some chairs to match. You may also be able to add a second one in depending on the size.
Organizing Your Closet
You are going to quickly find out, if you haven’t already, that the key to enjoying your apartment more is to stay organized. We know, you don’t like to hear it and we don’t like to say it, but the fact is that when you finally get organized, it is much easier to stay organized. It could, actually, save you time when you are in a rush, because you know where everything goes and can put it there and be confident that you will be able to find it when you need it next.
When you are shopping for or living in an apartment, space is always there, you just have to know how to use it most efficiently. Much of the time, it is as simple as getting rid of a bunch of those old boxes you have been meaning to throw out. Other times, you may need a deep clean, but once you do, your life will be so much easier. If you do, you will likely be ready to implement our next tips when we release more apartment living hacks and stay ahead of your friends!
