Any suggestions on what to get to sprucen it up, make it more organized etc?
Lots of shelving, keeping things off of the floor. This will help make the place more organised and tidy with out to much effort.
A metal pole?
Drink ... Girls .......
A lava lamp. Ohh and girls...
Perhaps a condom dispenser in the bathroom? That'll even help weed out the "wrong" i.e. prudish girls
Decorations to warm the place up.
HINT: Girls make nice decorations.
Girls like candles, for lighting.
Bean bags. Lots of bean bags. Always good for late night parties
sand uneven things, clean the floors, perfect the room itself, and then paint the walls. Multiple coats! The paint will last a long time if you put the effort in and do it nice. After that, put in well designed furniture. It doesn't necessarily have to be expensive, but if there's anything worth investing in it would be in your home, IMO. But don't get a lot of furniture and certainly not bean bag chairs, ewww . Repaint and refinish wood surfaces. Avoid clutter at all costs. Keep stuff you access less than once every 3 days in a closet. Think minimal when it comes to decoration, let the space be a decoration for itself. Maintain a color scheme, something dark with good mood lighting. Then keep it clean! The end result:
I find that when my room is organized, beautiful, clean, and minimal, I can function much better in my daily life. Tidy room, tidy mind!
Be sure to get some nice lamps. The right lighting is an essential part, I like more subdued lighting as opposed to harsher fluorescent lights.
Did you sneak into Prince's bedroom again?
How do you know that Prince hasn't been sneaking into his bedroom? J/K
Prince is icky .
get energy efficient bulbs, you'll save money in the long run and it helps the environment immensely.
Thanks for the ideas
This is the proposed room plan.
This is the main room, in addition I have a small walk-in storage room and of course a kitchen and bathroom.
My place was nice and clean until my mom decided to move to a smaller place and I found out just how much of my stuff was still stored at her house. One of these days I'll make it through all the boxes.
so it's a studio?
have you seen pics of mine?
minimal is good. store, give away or trash things you will not use all the time. The less you have the easer it is to clean. A small place can get messy really soon. In a smaller place light colors will help it feel bigger. The nice thing is computer stuff can usually be packed comfortably in a small space making more room for everything else.
I just moved into a place a lot smaller then my old one, but moving stuff around I was able to make it work. I also Craigslist'ed almost half my crap. Once I'm done I will post ya a picture of a nice way to get computery things in a small area,
Nice place. Got enough shoes?
Could use a bit more purple velvet.
Nah...the building is probably pretty stable and if it needs reinforcing it should be taken up with the super...
OK stupid question but where is the window? the entire bottom?
if the bottom is the window I would switch the bed and desk.
The window is on the top
Funny I was just about to gripe about the fact that they have bachelor apartments and no bachelorette. And for me I was thinking for that type of apartment they should have a metal pole. Be good entertainment for the boys.
Where does the kitchen attach to the room? What about the bathroom and walk-in closet, front door, etc.
It's hard to know what to say without knowing what this place currently looks like. What type of flooring? What colour? Where would you keep all the ladiez? .....blah blah blah....
one could always guess how it looks now. it may be a stretch to think the fridge would be in the bathroom and the stove in the bedroom. although...that's pretty close to what my apartment is.
