Moving to a small Apartment Edmonton

If you have recently moved into one of our cozy 550 square foot one-bedroom apartments with Leston Holdings? Are you ready to make the move?


It's a bold move to downsize and we both know that when it comes to downsizing a lot of our things simply won't make the cut.
But….. take a step back and really like at your stuff and start prioritizing them.

I can honestly say and already feel the benefits of moving into a smaller new apartment. The benefits of going from big to small are evident and delightful. 

1. For one the possibility of being able to only plug your vacuum in once and vacuum the whole house without having to find another outlet.
If you have just burst out laughing at this benefit and thinking it's not all that impressive or enticing, don't. Not having to stretch with your vacuum cord and not having to interrupt yourself when you're in the vacuum zone is a positive aspect of living in a smaller apartment.

2. Speaking of cleaning, you can clean your whole space a whole lot faster.
It's just a fact of life: Less square footage translates into less surface area to scrub. That means you'll not only be able to keep your home cleaner easier but spend less valuable time doing it.

3. The steps it takes to turn your new place into a cozy spot consist of moving your stuff in.
The thing about a small space is that you don't have to contend with any of the downsides of living in a big space, namely lofty rooms that are too big and cold feeling. Fitting your things in a small space snugly naturally lends itself to a cozy and comfy feel.

4. The downsizing of furniture means you now have only the best things you really love in your space. Going from a larger space to a smaller space usually means you have to get rid of a few things. That's not a bad thing! Not only is streamlining your stuff a fantastic way to get on the path to a more uncluttered, minimalist lifestyle. When you get to your new apartment, you'll be left with your favorite, best stuff. And that's a great starting point for a new place!
