Are you searching for a new apartment in Everett? Are you trying to decide whether to upgrade the size of your apartment or move into a cozy, small apartment? Many couples and families seek out the largest apartment they can find in their budget, but there are actually a variety of reasons a small apartment might actually make more sense.
The most obvious benefit of living in a small apartment is getting to enjoy what might be a smaller rental payment; however, there are several additional pluses you might not be aware of regarding cozy apartment life.
Small Apartments Offer Luxuries You Can Afford
If you live in a small apartment, you might be able to afford a residence that also offers you access to some fun amenities that you wouldn’t have in an expensive apartment. For example, your Everett apartment at Colby Creek will come with access to an elegant clubhouse with Wi-Fi capability, a cardio fitness center, a sparkling outdoor swimming pool, and much more.
What you lack in space inside your cozy apartment, you’ll make up for in fun at the various amenities you’ll have access to in your apartment community. While a large and rather plain apartment without many amenities can help you relax with its space and airy feel, a cozy apartment can also feel like “home sweet home.”
You Can Try a Minimalist Lifestyle in a Small Everett Apartment
When you live in an apartment for a few years, it’s quite easy to accumulate a lot of stuff that can clutter your space, and moving into a smaller apartment can help you reduce the amount of clutter you have to deal with each day. Moving is the perfect time to sell, donate, and recycle items you no longer use, and you can accomplish this goal whether you’re moving into a small apartment or a huge, new house.
If you’re not sure whether you could enjoy a minimalist lifestyle, you have the option of putting the majority of your possessions into a storage unit for a few months and trying out a life free of clutter. You might find that you enjoy a clean interior and that your extra possessions would fare better in the hands of someone else who might use them regularly.
Enjoy More Money for Entertainment in a Small Apartment
A small apartment may cost less than a large apartment, and you can enjoy a larger budget for entertainment, as well as your yearly vacation when you choose to reduce your home size. You may also be able to adopt a hobby or participate in extra activities without worrying about spending too much money.
Although a smaller apartment might not necessarily come with a lower rental payment than a larger apartment in another area, you can try to seek out an apartment with a small one-bedroom floor plan and rent to match.
