Moving into a studio apartment might be a good change! There is much less maintenance and with that – much fewer worries. Studio apartments and downsizing, in general, are becoming very popular nowadays. Interior designers are working around the clock to figure out new and exciting ways to turn small apartments into something amazing. That’s why we have murphy beds now. That is just one of the solutions to make a small space look and feel big.
Moving into a studio apartment
If you are relocating from a much bigger place to a studio apartment chances are you won’t have the room to fit all your belongings. After you declutter and prioritize you will know what is for your new place and what is left can be put in storage somewhere near your new home. That is the best solution. The most common one. Just make sure to find storage somewhere near your place. That way you can go whenever you need to get your household items. There are many types of storage available nowadays. You should research a bit more before deciding. One thing we can recommend is temperature-controlled storage. In case you have a lot of furniture and temperature-sensitive items that need to be far away from the moist too.
Tips on making your studio apartment more functional
Even the smallest ones can be very practical if you find good solutions. The murphy bed we mentioned earlier is a great solution since you don’t have a separate bedroom. In one move you transform your bedroom into a living room. Make sure to research all the ways you can make regular items into storage. That way your place will look neat and you will have the room for some basics you need. Some big (furniture) store chains have amazing solutions for small spaces. IKEA might be the best since they have good quality furniture with great solutions at a reasonable price so make sure to check it out.
Adapting to a new place
Make sure to unpack as soon as you arrive. You don’t have the space to work around those ugly moving boxes. They will be on your way so this is your first task. If you can’t do it on your own – hire local movers to help you out. As soon as you unpack you can start furnishing, decorating, and finding smart solutions for your studio apartment. And of course, after you are done settling in you can start meeting your new next-door neighbors and exploring the neighborhood. Don’t worry if the place looks too small at the beginning you will get used to it soon and you will see why so many people prefer to live in smaller places. Moving into a studio apartment then will look like the best idea ever.
