Most people only see the limited space being offered by apartments. Small space, yes, but living in an apartment definitely has its advantages—from financial to other aspects of living. With proportions that are convenient, this low cost housing option requires low commitment, compared to being tied to a mortgage. Some apartments even come with extra amenities, so you can live life comfortably without having to worry about complex repairs and routinary upkeep, which can also add up to your savings.
More than being a challenge, the generally compact space of apartments heightens its charm. With less space to hold things, you are compelled to keep your acquisitions to a minimum. Keep in mind that your living room must serve a lot of different purpose so you have to choose pieces that are both decorative and functional: a workspace, a lounging area, an extension of the dining room, and maybe even a guestroom when the need arises. Apart from enjoying the simple life, you also promote sustainability because more people can fit into less space.
