It’s finally time to ditch the roommates (or parents) and get your own place! But how do you weigh your options? Most people that can afford to live alone go for a studio apartment or a one-bedroom, but what’s the difference? Here are some tips and facts about both to help you make the right decision for your needs.
You’d be surprised how small of a space you can cram a shower, toilet and sink into. The good news is, with a little creativity, you can create more storage than you think in your fun-sized bathroom.
For items that you take to the sink every day – toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, makeup, comb, or whatever it may be – find a cheap, decorative basket to easily stash your essentials wherever they may fit.
Apartment living can come with a lot of perks: a great local community to interact with, paid amenities, and free maintenance. But when looking at studio apartments, closet space can often leave something to be desired. Here are the top 5 easy tips for making the most out of a smaller closet.
The old adage, “April showers bring May flowers” doesn’t account for when those April showers get out of hand. Unfortunately, many of the country’s worst storms happen during the spring and can sometimes lead to flash flooding, steady downpours, and electrical outages. Bad weather that creates a power outage is no fun but it can also quickly escalate to more dire straights if your emergency kit was never stocked. At ApartmentSearch, we think being prepared is the best policy. Here are the emergency supplies to keep on hand year ’round.
Regardless of whether you live in New York City or San Francisco, studio apartments have one major characteristic in common: limited space. The thing about a small area is that it gives you the opportunity to be creative with your smaller home. We’ve put together a few apartment hacks to keep your clutter to a minimum and help you maximize your space and organization.
Wine holder as a towel rack
If you’re seriously lacking shelving space in your bathroom, a wine rack is a great way to store and organize your towels and linens. Plus, the wine rack adds a functional yet elegant look to the bathroom.
If you live in a studio apartment, you know what it’s like to get creative with storage. Studio apartments can get cramped very quickly, but they don’t have to! Using storage solutions are a great way to maximize the space you do have in your apartment. Walls aren’t just for art; they can be the best vehicles for uncluttering the floor. Additionally, storage doesn’t have to be ugly. Have fun with it and you’ll make the visual dynamics of your studio apartment more interesting. Here are a few best practices when it comes to storage solutions.
Look for Multipurpose Furniture
Finding furniture that has multiple uses is key to fitting all your stuff into your small apartment. Think about the pieces of furniture that take up a lot of room, but could also provide space to store things. Look for bed frames that come with drawers or have space under them for storage bins. Furniture pieces like this are perfect for hiding out-of-season clothes or extra linens. Storage ottomans are great for packing away DVDs, extra remotes and controllers, or throw blankets.
