Lifestyle | Making The Most Of A Studio Apartment


Nowadays, the studio apartment is becoming an increasingly attractive living option for young
professionals. It’s a self-contained living unit that often contains a bedroom, living space, and
kitchen all in one, open plan space. Most will then have one separate room for a bathroom
(this is necessary, and a facility that you should ensure the property has before agreeing
to rent or buy it). In short, it’s perhaps the most compact form of property.
For young adults, this compact, minimal and cosy spaces are a brilliant investment with little waste.
It’s also a great option for moving out of a family home, without having to take on the responsibility
of a larger property. However, living in such a compact space can take some getting used to. So,
here are a few ways to get to grips with living in a smaller space!

Invest in Small and Convenient Appliances

When you live in a small space, the most standard of household appliances can suddenly seem
bulky, inconvenient and unnecessarily space consuming. But the good news is that increasing
demand for space saving appliances has encouraged suppliers to develop alternatives, and
there’s now plenty of choice on the market. A good example is compact or handheld vacuums.
These needn’t be plugged in when being used and can be charged from charging points which can
be mounted on the wall in the corner of any room. Another option is halogen ovens.
Many studio apartments have limited kitchen space, making it relatively difficult to cook multiple
foodstuffs at once. You may only have two hobs and a small oven with room for one tray, making
more complex dishes or roasts more difficult. A halogen oven can be placed on the worktop
while in use and tucked away in a cupboard when not required. If you’re interested in these,

Practice Minimalism

It is easy for any home to become cluttered. We have so many belongings that even the largest
rooms rooms can easily become filled. However, when the space you’re starting out with in the first
place is relatively limited, even the slightest build up of unnecessary belongings can  and begin to
induce a sense of claustrophobia. It’s extremely important to avoid this wherever possible.
Your studio apartment should be a space where you can kick back and relax, basking in positive
energy and not worrying about mess and junk. A good way to start easing stress in the home is to
embrace minimalist design. Having fewer belongings can often feel liberating and will make your
interiors feel more spacious and calming. So, clear out anything that isn’t necessary
(that means anything that isn’t practical or with sentimental value).
Then, once everything is clear, question every purchase you make and only bring home
things that are absolutely necessary!

As you can see, there are plenty of benefits to living in a studio apartment,
as long as you use your space wisely. Hopefully the few pieces of advice above should help you
along the way
