Sometimes, when you have rented a studio apartment you realise that the place is actually too small for your things.
Worry not, first time dwellers! Houston apartments come in all sizes and prices.
All you need to do is list your requirement and go by your instinct.
Once you have chosen the studio that fits your description half the problem is solved! When you have moved into the place, you need to start thinking of making it 'liveable'.
There are many options available to you when you are just starting out to live alone in Houston TX apartments.
Given the well planned architecture of these homes, you should have no problem decorating it as you like! If you are starting out on a small budget, you should list all the affordable options available to you.
In addition to that, draw a rough sketch of the place and keep it ready.
While you do that, collect all the pictures of homes you may have seen in magazines and newspapers - this will help you visualise your own small home.
Now, pull out that sketch and mark the furniture you would like to place in a particular area.
Next make a list of the furniture you need to buy.
You may have a long or short list depending on the size of your apartment in Houston.
Remember to list an alternative option in case you do not find the exact thing you have in mind.
If there is a garage sale happening somewhere close by, do not miss it! You will find all sorts of things in a garage sale.
Plus each one of them will have a story to tell, making it that much more special a possession! Get a friend to drive you there - this way you save up on transporting the furniture! Now go around the sale properly to see the furniture on sale.
Make sure you do not end up buying something because it looks nice - it also has to fit in your little home.
Furniture can help you decorate but also take up space.
You will be surprised to see how many lovely things you will come across for your studio!
