    17 Things You Need If You Live In A Tiny Apartment

    I finally understand how people make it ~work~ living in those tiny homes on HGTV.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about the best thing they ever bought for their tiny apartment. Here are their truly game-changing suggestions:

    1. An ottoman that doubles as a footstool, storage space, end table, and snack tray — it's what furniture dreams are made of, essentially.

    2. A handy utility cart, so you'll finally have a place to stash various knickknacks but make it ~decor~.

    3. A sheet of decorative window film that will give you the privacy you've been craving without having to hang dreary-looking curtains.

    4. A space-saving rack for cups and mugs, because you might as well put your affinity for cute teacups on display (and leave the cabinets free to house wineglasses).

    5. A set of wall-mounted shelves to help remove clutter from your bookcase/dresser/floor and make your room look organized at the same time.

    6. A kitchen cart with a chrome steel frame and wooden top that doubles as a shelf and a cutting board, perfect for maximizing space in that teeny-tiny cooking space of yours.

    7. A toaster oven that will save you time and effort when you want to heat up last night's leftover pizza.

    8. A rolling storage cart to provide organization in cramped spaces like your bathroom or kitchen.

    9. A five-piece set of magnetic containers essential for any indecisive decorator who likes to ~mix~ things up in their room every now and then.

    10. A single measuring cup to replace the pile of mismatched cups and spoons you've been hoarding in the cabinet under your sink.

    11. A two-tiered lazy Susan that will help you keep track of all your spices, thus preventing you from buying yet another jar of cinnamon when there's already one hiding in the back of your cabinet.

    12. A cube organizer, perfect for anyone who has a lot of odds and ends they'd like to display in their minuscule living room.

    13. A Chromecast and Premium Spotify subscription that will let you blast "Thank u, Next" from every inch of your teeny home.

    14. A mounted wall table you can fold up and down as needed — it's inventive and pretty freakin' amazing.

    15. A stationary vacuum, so you can do all of your cleaning without using precious space to house a big, bulky vacuum.

    16. A collapsible wooden table that has SIX drawers for all the kitchen storage you could hope for.

    17. A high-rise bed frame, so you'll finally have an acceptable space to stash your suitcase, holiday decorations, and that rug you and your roomie can't decide whether you want to use or not.
