Add An Entryway To A Small Room To Make It Feel More Like An Apartment

Whether you’ve moved back in with your parents or you’re renting out a room, living in someone else’s space can make you feel like you don’t have a space of your own. Here’s a simple tip to make your old room feel more like your own apartment: add an entryway.

Consider adding a table or space in your room your keys, wallet and other essentials. The idea is to make your room feel separate from the rest of the house. Apartment Therapy explains:

Give yourself a place to hang up your coat and keys (by the door, or maybe just outside in the hall).

If you are lucky enough to have your own entrance, my all means, dress it up! Add a welcome mat and some plant stands outside. You’d be surprised what a well-dressed side door will do to make your share of the house feel like home.
