Have you been thinking about turning your apartment into a nerdy and stylish space? That’s great because it means you are in line with the modern world. Here are some ideas to get you started on “geeking” out your new apartment.
Thrift Cool Furniture
Did you know that in the last four months of 2017, the average price for NYC condominiums in existing buildings was $1.9 million? Whether you choose to buy a condo or rent an apartment, you may find that more of your money is going to rent! This means you need to find some cheaper ways to decorate and furnish your new space.
Since you want to turn your apartment into a geekier one, chances are that you will not find the furniture you want at your conventional brick-and-mortar store. In that regard, you may want to ask for referrals from friends about where to get geek-inspired furniture or thrift stores that sell the same. That way, you will be able to get your hands on unique pieces that will make your apartment stand out.
Visit the Comic Store for Inspiration
Are you having trouble feeling inspired when it comes to decorations and setting up your new apartment? The good news is that there is probably a comic store within your locality that you can visit to get inspiration.
There, you will see an array of comic books, apparel, games, and books, all of which you can draw inspiration from in terms of decorating your space. Sales associates can help you choose pieces in the store that you can use to decorate. You may be drawn to a particular comic or story that you’d like to incorporate into your styled space.
Check Out Small Businesses in Your New City for Unique Décor
Chances are that you will not find any geek-inspired décor pieces in major stores. That shouldn’t stop you from getting what you want for your apartment, though. There is a reason why over 400 million entrepreneurs exist all over the world. You may, therefore, want to start by checking out small businesses in your area. If you are serious and consistent, you will certainly find one or two businesses that stock pieces that could add to the geekiness of your space.
Show Off Your Geeky Side With Handmade Apartment Furnishings
You don’t have to buy everything you need to make your apartment nerdy. If you are a geek enthusiast, you could try making some handmade apartment furnishings. This will not only save you money but also allow you to display your creative side. It is also worth noting that doing this frequently improves your skills.
Aside from furnishing your apartment, you can gift your creations to friends and family or even sell them to earn some extra money.
Create a Separate Gaming Room
Your apartment can have a geeky theme, but having a separate game room could be the heart of it. It would be nice to have a dedicated space where you can go all out with your geekiness, and a gaming room makes a perfect choice. Just ensure that you have an internet connection as well as a sound system and blackout blinds. Of course, you can also have a ton of different devices and games, but just ensure that you have the aforementioned essentials.
Decorate Your Bathroom
Remember that it is necessary to visit the dentist every six months regardless of your age. This is why you need to keep your dental supplies organized in your bathroom. To keep the space as organized as possible, try to decorate the space as best you can. You may find that keeping it clean is dependent on how much you enjoy being in the space!
You don’t have to conform to society’s views on how the ideal apartment should look and function. If you want yours to be different, go ahead and make it happen. You can do that by geeking out your apartment, and with the ideas here, that shouldn’t be too hard.
