sure feels good to be back in new yorkback in my cozy apartment welcome back to the channel for everyone new here myname is eric about two months ago i made a tour of my apartment and i got a tonof comments and questions from people asking eric how can you manage to livein such a tiny apartment and it's pretty safe to say that i have mastered the artof living in tiny spaces in this video i'm gonna share with you my top 7 tipsfor saving space oh that's not good that's oh that's really bad damn i justding my murphy bed that's actually a pretty bad thing anyway these are my top7 tips for saving space while living in a tiny apartment that i use in myeveryday life space-saving tip number

one is everyone's favorite party trickit is the murphy bed so this is what my apartment were to look like if i had anormal bed in the studio and as you can see the bed takes up a lot of realestate when you're working with the place that's around you know 300 400square feet the bed takes up a lot of room and i was thinking about this theother night if i didn't have this murphy bed i don't think i would be able tolive in a place this small like that's how much of a game changer this is lookat all this space that becomes available when we fall upthe murphy bed having all this space opened up i'd say this is almost a thirdof the apartment is taken up by the bed

so the murphy bed is the go-to the onlyreal drawback that i can find for the murphy bed is the fact that they'repretty pricey my specific model was from a company called great of beds and itwas just about $1,700 i have the white on white which is nice because it prettymuch disappears into the wall and you can't really notice it a lot of timeswhen people come over they think that it's a dresser or some storage unit andthen i take down the bed and it's kind of a cool party trick you know not manypeople expect you to have a fold-up bed tip number two on my list is the hangingbike rack a bike in the apartment can take up a ton of space i have here thisindustrial bike rack made from some

metal piping with some leather accentsthat i mounted to a piece of wood and then put my wallthe amount of for space that the fight actually takes up is a lot more than youwould think bike on the wall kind of adds that newyork aesthetic to the apartment a little bit of a confession the other night i'msitting at my desk getting some work done i kind of hear like a noise likesomething's like i the world-famous bike mount rack kind of wall device thing itfell out of the wall while i was working the bike almost fell on my head luckilyi have cat-like reflexes and i got out of the way really quick so the bike rackrest in peace i'll have to reinstall

later this week the bike rack has go-tofor saving space when you live in a tiny apartment and you have a big white wallthere's a few things you could do with ityou could hang a huge piece of art you could get a massive tv or you could geta full-length full-body mirror that you put right by the bed it will make theapartment seem double the size like the first thing i do when i wake up isactually look into the mirror and i can see the skyline of new york from themirror which is pretty amazing i got this mirror from a company calledballard designs for just about seven hundred dollars when you live in a spacethis cozy having a full length full wall

mirror can make the apartment seemdouble the size also it's important for getting ready you know you're gettingready for that meeting that day you gotta have that full-body mirror to seehow you're looking before you head out the door normally a coffee table issomething that is really big it's just it's ready from the couch and it doesn'tmove it collects dust and crap and it just sort of sits there a greatspace-saving solution to that in a tiny apartment is having multiple lightweightand tables these end tables were all handmade they are reclaimed water theymake the perfect coffee table if you have friends over i have this one off inthe corner which acts as a more

permanent table and then i have a 24 by24 pub table which serves as my dining room table and breakfast note they'reeasy they're clean and when you're not using them just move them right out ofthe way so now this next tip might be the most important one on my list justfor the video of the demonstration this is how i normally keep my apartment veryclean but for the video i'm gonna just throw my dirty wash everywhere so youcan see a tiny apartment can amplify the mess so as you can slip slip here putstuff on the couch to is this messy enough yeah now it looksdisgusting this is a huge tip and it's so underrated when you live in a smallapartment you have to keep it clean like

there's no i mean unless that's yourthing and you don't mind living like this but for me i mean everything hasits set place because it's very easy for it to get very cluttered and super messyvery fast you know most people they wait till the end of the week the end of theworkweek and they clean everything at once which can kind of just be a hassleand ruin your weekend what i do is i clean a little bit every day i get donemy workout and i don't throw my gym clothes on the windowsill here like thisyou know i fold it up right away and put it in the closet so normally yourapartment does not look like this i've never seen your apartment this mess noit's trash okay but this is just for an

example to show that a mess is a hugeway to save space in a tiny apartment or a lack of a mess all right how aboutthis i'll help you clean up if you saw my apartment tour video you know that mykitchen is one of i mean i have yet to meet someone who has a smaller kitchenit's one of the coziest kitchens in all of new york city the next tip for savingspace and a tiny apartment on our list is kitchen utensils this tip is verysimple only have two of everything two plates two bowls two forks twospoons because honestly you can't comfortably have more than two people inthe apartment at a time for a meal the number seven tip i have for saving spaceis utilizing your closet i'm very lucky

and i have a pretty large walk-in closetin this apartment the closet came with this bar for hanging and i actually putin these shelves so i can put all my clothing in there i have all myelectronics stored here miscellaneous things my air mattress this one's out ofnecessity because i don't really think that i could fit a dresser in thisapartment i mean there's not really too much room anywhere in here that i couldput a dresser i mean that right there is the 360 tour of the apartment i waswondering how many of you actually live here in new york comment down below ifyou live in new york city if you ever have lived in new york city or if you'veever spent time living in a tiny
