What I Love About My Small Home:
I love that it's all mine! But really, I love that I was able to find something affordable in downtown Phoenix with a little charm, and still be in walking/biking distance to all my favorite bars, restaurants, and my office. Everything here in Phoenix is so new and Spanish inspired. I love that my little place feels like it could be back in Ohio where I'm from.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space:
Take the time to find a place that you love. There are things I'd definitely change about my place (oh washer/dryer… I miss you). But the brick walls and concrete flooring sold me, and I'd rather have this place than live somewhere cookie cutter with "modern" updates.
Don't be afraid to make a temporary place feel like home. Initially I was afraid to hang too much on the walls, buy curtains… but I really feel like it's worth it to invest in your space, even if you're renting.
Find creative storage solutions! I've got a pegboard in my kitchen, as well as extra shelves on the wall to accommodate the lack of storage space in the cabinets.
