There are many benefits to moving into a studio apartment. A smaller space is an excellent way to save money on your moving cost or move into your dream location without overpaying. However, there are some difficulties and challenges that come with moving into such a small space. Luckily, we’re here to help make your transition
- Declutter Before Moving – Before your moving day arrives, spend some time decluttering your space. If you currently live in a one or two bedroom apartment, it’s important to realize that you may need to get rid of some of your belongings to make the most of life in a studio apartment. Regardless of whether you donate some clothes and appliances to family and friends or contribute to the homeless and those in need, decluttering and getting rid of things you rarely use is a great idea.
- Use Storage Solutions – There are several things that you can do to ensure that your space stays clean and organized once you move into your studio. Having smart storage solutions is one way to accomplish this. From buying a bed with storage drawers to hold some of your clothing to getting a storage bench or lift coffee table to store some of your magazines, books and spare linens, buying the right furniture can go a long way.
- No Bulky Furniture – No matter how much you love that large reclining sofa and your comfortable king sized bed, it is wise for you to realize that a studio furniture means it’s time to downsize. Having appropriately sized furniture not only looks better in a studio apartment, but it also makes living in one a lot more comfortable and enjoyable. Bulky furniture often means squeezing around a chair or having very little space in your bedroom to get ready for work. Avoid putting yourself in a jam and make living easy by buying smaller furniture. Instead of trying to make your sectional fit, add a cute futon that adds a pop of color.
- Consider a Storage Unit – Studio apartments usually go hand-in-hand with storage units for many people. Let’s face it. There are some things that you simply won’t want to sell or get rid of. A storage unit is an excellent way to hold on to those bulky pieces of furniture, large paintings and other collectibles when you move into a studio apartment. Do yourself a favor and ease the stress that can come with decluttering by securing a storage unit close to your new apartment. This will also provide added peace of mind that you have things that you love for your next move… especially if the studio apartment is a temporary relocation.
- Be Organized – Living in a studio apartment requires a new level of commitment to being clean and organized. Do yourself a favor and set a day aside weekly where you can clean and reorganize your apartment. When things are out of place in a larger space, you can get away with procrastinating and putting off cleaning. However, in a studio apartment, it’s more challenging. Protect your sanity and space by cleaning as often as possible.
