Finding the right home when you're on the move is always a challenge, but with a smaller space like a studio apartment, the challenge can be intensified. Whether you're just ready to downsize or you think a studio apartment is the best move for your budget, it’s definitely possible to find a satisfying living experience in a smaller apartment home.
1. Picture Your Essential 'Stuff'
You may have to downsize your possessions to live in a studio apartment, so go through them and determine what you can't live without. Want to visualize these essentials in your new apartment home? Consider using Springs Apartments’ 3D floor plans to plan out the space ahead of time.
2. Consider Storage Space
Although you'll have a generous walk-in closet in a Springs studio apartment, you might consider adding a wardrobe for additional storage. Also, consider whether the cabinets are sufficient to store dishes, pots and pans, as well as to stow memorabilia, important papers and your important collectibles.
3. What About a Work Space?
You may just need a place to plug in a laptop on a counter or at the dining table, but if you require additional space for filing cabinets, a desk and work papers, think carefully about whether a studio apartment offers the space you need for a home office.
4. Make Use of Extra Amenities
Don't think that your living space is limited by the boundaries of your studio apartment. There's room to roam by making use of Springs’ community recreational opportunities, including the clubhouse where you can relax and meet new friends, and our leash-free dog park for your canine friend.
