      Using the storage your apartment comes with—such as a bathroom vanity—to your full advantage is a smart small-apartment idea for saving space. By maximizing what you already have, you eliminate the need for add-on storage units that make a room feel cramped. Stackable or pull-out storage in a bathroom vanity fills the vertical space and tidies up bathroom necessities. Layering gives an apartment a touch of sophistication. Take this trick to the floor with a duo of area rugs. Anchor a furniture arrangement with a simple neutral rug, and place a second statement rug on top of it. See the difference? 

  A cramped dining nook can become worthy of dinner parties with a few smart strategies. Use clear chairs or a glass-top table to visually expand the space and make it feel bigger. Then hang up some artwork, and adjust the lighting.If your dining area came with a chandelier, see if you can cover the bare bulbs with shades. Use colorful garden stools as impromptu coffee tables or bedside tables. These relatively lightweight furniture pieces can easily be moved from room to room and are much easier to carry up apartment stairs than a bulky table. By bringing your rental appartment to life,you will feel like at home which will elevate your entire experience while you rent.

  That’s because what you lack in autonomy as far as home decorating and renovating you more than make up for in cost convenience. One area where that is abundantly clear is in your monthly budgeting. Home ownership is a variable cost endeavor. Depending on the terms of a mortgage, interest rates may change over time—going up or down without the input of the owner themselves. The same is true for property taxes, which almost always fluctuate. When you rent, you lock yourself in at a set monthly amount for the entire term of your lease so that the only variable costs you have to worry about are spending more in heat or electricity.
