If you have a really, really small apartments to live in, like a studio apartment, it may seem impossible to have a normal life in such a small space. But this doesn’t have to be the case! Many architects and designers have dedicated their energy and mind in inventing smart solutions for small spaces. These inventions really may be more expensive, but if you can afford them just think about how much space they will save you and don’t hesitate to buy them. In long terms it will turn out to be the best choice. After all, someone has worked hard on coming up to an idea, doing calculations for making it possible to materialize, and finally realizing it. It is not the plain, simple home element which just needs to be pieced together and it is already good to use. Creativity has been a huge part in the process of producing a home element which will be a practical space saver and looking good enough to make you feel comfortable and nice having it around.
Small apartments are really not for lazy people. They demand little everyday efforts which one has to keep up with in order to maintain normal life. It has to be cleaned often and although it is a tiny effort, you can not allow yourself to skip it, as the place will soon be looking really messy without it. As home elements for studio apartments are mostly with dual purpose you have to be constantly switching from one functionality to the other. This can have positive effects on your overall attitude in a sense of not letting you get lazy. It can be said that small places push you to lead active life. They will make you a great dish washer and a bed maker, as these two actions are a must when living in small spaces. Although they don’t sound very fun or like very divine activities, they can actually bring you great pleasure. They are not time consuming actions but after you do them you get a feeling of accomplishing a task, which is a positive mind setup, and motivates you for doing more. As you finish them quickly and you feel satisfied after, you get yourself in a “doing” mood which can rise the level of your daily activities.
Small space living pushes you to think more and find new ways to store all your belongings. They activate your brain into creative thinking which can be reflected in other areas of your life. Although living in small homes may seem as a horrible and terrifying thing to do at the beginning it can turn out to be a great life experience. Some people actually came to love small space living so much, that they continue their lives inside them, even when they can afford a bigger home.
Small living spaces can make you feel more cozy and in some cases more protected. You may feel that you have more control over your space which is always a good feeling. And with today’s technology many things have become possible even in such small places, and I am talking about 200 square feet, which used to be an unimaginable space to live in.

I found these home pieces to be amazing, they can transform the room in so many ways you wouldn’t think as possible. A single room can be so much more than the eye meets at first sight. I especially like this relation to hidden qualities and deeper discoveries.
