What I Love About My Home
The tall ceilings and big windows! They make my apartment seem cozy instead of claustrophobic, with such narrow rooms. Even in a small footprint, having the ability to go vertical made a big difference in maintaining an open feel.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Definitely storage. There is also only one very small closet in the whole apartment, with room for nothing more than my clothes. Because of my wonderful tall ceilings, I figured I might as well go up, and my boyfriend and I designed and built my loft bed to function essentially as a storage locker. The shelves on one end work as additional clothes storage, and are on wheels to slide out and provide access to the storage space underneath. I also installed a wall of shelves in the bathroom to provide some much-needed storage there.
