I’m pretty sure I promised a tour my apartment about 4 months ago when I first moved to Grand Rapids. I’ve been pretty settled for awhile but kept telling myself “next week”…repeat that countless times and it’s now been a few months and I’m quite overdue.
I decided that not only did I need to finally share a peek into my space, but it provided a great opportunity to get things cleaned up. (What?! #truth) 😉
I am very happy with my decision to find a place that didn’t require a roommate as I do believe that makes me much happier about my living situation. Sure it can get a little lonely at times, but I’m an introvert and would rather have full control over whether or not I want to be around others. haha
From my front door you’re immediate in the living room. I don’t have a couch but those two chairs are super comfortable! I don’t really think there’s room for a couch and those chairs so I decided to hold off on buying a couch and use what I had, especially since they’re comfy, it’s just me and they meet my needs.
You’ll notice there’s no TV but the laptop on my coffee table is older and basically only used for watching shows online.
To the right of the front door is my little “office” space – desk and bookshelf. I don’t often sit at my desk, but it’s nice having that separate space set up when needed. I can’t get the external monitor to work but once I figure out what the issue is, I’ll have that all set up!
My little patio is pretty empty right now but I’m hoping to get a small table and chair out there and then plant my little garden out there as well.
My kitchen is pretty small but it gets the job done. There’s just enough room in front of the closet for a table, 2 chairs and my shelf with espresso maker.
The bathroom is strange to me in that the door opens into the sink which seems to be because of the light switch being on the wall to the right but then watch your ankles on that heater unit.
Then my room…it’s a decent size with a pretty big closet. I keep the closet door open as it seems to make the room feel bigger (strangely enough) or maybe just not as dark (?). My full length mirror is not hanging on the wall as it needs a new frame (any ideas?) and no, I don’t have a headboard (any ideas?).
Those are my refurbished dressers from a couple years ago and I still love them just as much!
There it is…that’s my space! I hope you enjoyed the little peek into my world.
Any ideas on making a headboard and/or mirror frame?
