A Studio Apartment for Retirement Living Episode 405

Looking for ways on how you can decorate and utilize a small space? Then this episode is perfect for you! We really enjoyed this episode of the Home Tour Series since they really found the best solutions to maximize the storage and function of a small space.

In this episode, the squad helped Kathleen, a new retiree, to envision her new apartment in Manhattan as she downsized from an 800 square foot one-bedroom to a 400 square foot studio which means she had to cut down her space by half!

With a smaller space, Kathleen’s old furniture and things no longer suit the place and hindered her from creating her creative relaxing retirement space. Luckily the Home Tour Squad came to the rescue and helped Kathleen re-envision her space. They used some iconic Ikea pieces to utilize every space.
