Some choose to live in small spaces, are you one of them?

I like the idea of the tiny houses. So many are going this way to save money and live debt free.  I found a video that has some very charming tiny houses. I know that it is not for everyone. They are really cute to look at.  Check  it out.

Bigger is not always better. We need to think about these kinds of things and make it more workable for those that want to live this way.

This is what some people are doing to live in small spaces and not have to deal with the regulations that cities put in the codes. They put the house on wheels.

How do you choose to live?  Are you the bigger the better way of life person? Or are you the small space kind of person? Both are fine, it is just how you choose to live.

If you live in a small apartments most of the time you can not change the paint color or floors. Things like this. So how do you make it your own and be able to remove it when you are moving. (These are also ideas that can be used in a small house.)

If you are in a studio apartment and you want some separation to make it look like different rooms in one room. This video gives you some ideas on how to do just that.

More ways to do things that can be removed when leaving. In this video it gives some of the great things to do to help with this.


Five Interior Decorating Ideas for an Apartment

So some of the tips are:

Use furniture that has more than one use

like a day bed – a place to sit in the daytime and a bed at night, it might also have storage under it.

trunks- great for a table as well as for more storage like extra sheets and blankets for the day bed.

even book cases- If you are in a studio apartment  the bookcase can be a way to separate the spaces. If you want it more open space use a bookcase without a back on it so you can see all the way through. It can be used from both sides of the room. For a more closed off area use the ones with a back cover the back so that it looks nice from the back as well.


These are just a few of the ideas that can help you with your space.

These video is just for fun. If you own a small space you might want to think about some of these things in your space. They are things that would stay with the place if you moved. They might be harder to do for a rental apartment.  You could change them up a little to make them work for a rental unit as well.  Like two cabinets back to back so that they can be used for both rooms and as a way to separate the rooms and gives storage.

Hidden storage places.

Look at the way that they use cabinets in this space.

Sliding walls

and so much more.

For small spaces that you have to make everything count and use all the space that you have. Can you think outside the box and see the many ways that you an add to your space  to make it better. Do not forget to think up. If you have tall ceilings build a frame ( a loft type area) for your bed up high and have a work area under it.


Have fun add to your space the things that can help your life and make it better. Have things that will do more than one thing for you. Enjoy your space no matter how small it might be.

Ways to make a studio apartment fun and functional.

When decorating a studio apartment you need to think of the the things that you will need to do in that small space. A place to eat, sleep, a desk, entertainment ( tv and music), were are you going to store the things that you have.

For smaller spaces you always need to think about things doing more than one thing. Or ways to hide what you do not want seen. Think outside the box more than in some other spaces to be able to get the most into the small space that you have.

This video gives an idea of the things in the space doing more than one thing in the space.

What a lot of different ways to make a space work for you. You can see what I mean in this video.

Sometimes you have to think outside the box when it comes to what you need as well. Having a home. but not the big house payment that most people have. Watch this video to see haw he did it to fit his life.

Bigger is not always better. Could you do it. A lot of people are thinking this way.

How can you make your live better by the choices that you make and the things that you put into your life. In this video he found ways to make a small space work very well for him and very fun and functional at that. Check out this video.

These are some ways to add more fun and function to a small space. You need to think about what you need and how you can get it to fit into the small space that you have. Do you have tall ceilings, can you go up to add to your living space? How can you make something work better for you and what you need to do in the space.

If you are renting, find out if you can make some changes to add to your space or not. If you can not you will need to think about what you can do to make it work for you.

Some things could be:
A hide a bed (like in the last video), it goes up in the day time and comes down when you want to sleep.
Hide the desk away until you need it ( like in the last video).
Have a small table for eating that can fold down so that it does not take up as much space as when it is up.
A bench that adds as storage space.

These are just a few ways that you can add interest, fun and function to your small space.
