While you hopefully have more space than a ships cabin, thinking with that kind of intention and priority can get you significantly more mileage out of the few square feet that you do have. The first thing to consider is what you want to do when your space. Please dont just say Duh. I want to live in it. Do you like to play video games? Do you like to read? Cook? Do you spend a lot of time in the bathroom or getting dressed so you look your best? Pick 2-3 activities that are really essential to your well-being, and start thinking about how to use your space to let you do those things in the best way possible. If being well-dressed is really important to you, this may mean using a significant portion of your wall space for a very large mirror. If you like to cook, it may mean expanding your kitchen space with shelves or by hanging pots and hands or by adding a kitchen island. If you like to read, it may mean putting in one large comfy chair so that you could really relax and take in a book.
However, with a little creativity, space planning and repurposing your furniture, you can easily adapt your lifestyle to apartment living while still feeling like its home. First, creating a comfy home in an apartment doesnt require a huge outlay of cash, especially if youre moving from a home to an apartment, either in your own town or halfway across the country. The first step is to figure out what fits in your new space. This may require some hard decisions. If you cant fit it all in, you can always put what you cant use in storage until you either move to larger quarters or decide its fate.
Renting furniture can be a good idea, and if you find later on that you actually like the piece you are renting, many companies will actually use the money you have already spent renting towards the purchase of the item you want.
