My Own 700 Square Feet.

In the last month or so, I have gotten a few requests for pictures of my new apartment. I guess it’s because I moved from a rather large 2 bedroom/2 bath into a small 1 bedroom/1 bath unit and people want to see what it looks like in comparison. Well, I just snapped a few pictures to show you how it looks and so you can see that it’s perfectly fine (and even still bigger than I need) to live in 700 square feet. Take a look:

everything My Own 700 Square Feet.
All Of It

It’s all one room – what more does a single person need to live comfortably? The only thing not shown is my bedroom and bathroom, which are standard issue sizes. My previous unit was 1300 square feet, while this one is slightly over 700 square feet. I bet I could comfortably go down to 600 square feet without blinking an eye. Space is what you make it, and having less “stuff” certainly frees up your options! I could have gotten a much bigger apartment for the same price, but I decided against it for 2 reasons:

1. I don’t need that much space, and more space costs more to heat and cool.
2. The amenities in this apartment are way nicer than those found in older, larger complexes. I would rather pay the same price for a smaller apartment but nicer floors, windows, kitchens, etc – especially because the extra space would just be wasted.

What in the world would I do with a 2,000 square foot house that I see some single people live in? I would feel like I was living in a dance hall. Anyway, just wanted to share since I had gotten a few requests, hope you enjoyed!
