Small Apartment Hacks by Jenna Mahoney
From the back of the book:
Live Large – Hang hobby clutter like guitars or bikes on the wall as decoration.
Organize Smart – Upcycle empty wind crates into stylish, stackable shoe cubbies. Line a room with high bookshelves for a ceiling-top library
Entertain in Style – Utilize kitchen space to make an impressive entree – go potluck on the sides. Stash plants, lamps and coffee tables in the bathtub to open up party space.
According to the press release I received nearly 25 million people live in apartments here in the US.
Now that my children are moving out into their own places, and are among those 25 million people, I thought that reviewing Small Apartment Hacks would be a great way to help my kiddos figure out ways to maximize living in small quarters.
Second hand furniture plays a major part in decorating a first apartment – not only because it’s cheap but also earth friendly. And lets face it, many vintage items are simply cooler than the things that are made these days.
Of course, there are things to consider when buying vintage and Jenna gives several good tips.
There are also a few good charts in the book. Some things are common sense to those of us who have been around a while but if you don’t know… you don’t know.
Am I the only mom who gave a first aid kit as a housewarming gift? Please tell me I’m not.
When I first agreed to take a look at Small Apartment Hacks by Jenna Mahoney I thought maybe it would be a book full of cheap to make, MDF based storage and seating projects but it’s a handy little book full of tips and tricks for how to LIVE in a small space. From how to have budget friendly gatherings and parties to the best way to store things, like hanging hobby equipment on the walls as artwork AND storage.
