My current apartment is interesting. It's a 1K kind, but with a loft space, so it feels extra spacious. The ceilings are high and windows are large, it gets lots of sunlight and it's comfortable. Instead of hanging out on my bed like I used to in previous apartments, I now have an actual living room, and my futon is upstairs in the loft space, along with some clothes.
I've always wanted to live in a loft apartment, because we don't have those types in Canada. A pretty high ladder goes up to the second floor, and that floor is large enough to store lots of clothing and suitcases. I like that my living space is separated from my sleeping space- how it should be.
Everyone warned me about the ladder, as it can be bothersome at certain times. For example, having to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and using the ladder when drunk, something I have half attempted but I'm still alive. I actually like climbing the ladder to go to bed every night, it feels like I'm going camping or something.
I love this apartment, I feel like it's very "me". Any tips for small space living?

|The kitchen has NO storage space to I had to buy a separate shelving unit|
|The kitchen is seriously small, but the dish rack helps. I love my rice cooker!|
Next to it is a one-burner cooker, and underneath a fridge and toaster oven.
