6 Major Decorating Tips From Tiny House Owners | Apartment Therapy

From the good folks over at Apartment Therapy:

Decorating a tiny house? The only way to go is up. Not only does designing vertically create the illusion of a clean, clutter-free space, but it can also trick guests into thinking your home is bigger.

“Store items high and low, and out of the eye-line to make spaces seem bigger,” Spesard says.

Take advantage of the space underneath your bed and couch, and install a hanging pot holder in your kitchen.

They say “tiny house,” but on Russian Hill we know this is de rigeur for “apartment living.”

When it comes to making some of these ideas a reality in your studio or flat, we can help make that happen.

Many of these ideas were the inspiration for the start of Russian Hill Handyman Co. — if you’ve seen the loft bed in Rick’s apartment, you’ll know what we mean.

Where to Take a Date in Nob Hill, Russian Hill, and the Tenderloin

We give advice on a lot of subjects. Should I conceal the wiring for my wall-mounted flat screen in a rental? Can my ceiling support a ceiling fan? How can I eliminate drafts in my Victorian apartment?

But when it comes to where to take a date on Russian Hill, we defer to the experts over at Eater.

Range Hood Vent Alternatives – Window Fan Review | Kitchn

We’re not eager to knock ourselves out of the business of installing range hoods in rental apartments – a key piece of our workload – but there are often situations where a renter can’t get permission to knock out a vent line from the kitchen to an exterior wall. For that, we offer some good insight from our friends over at Apartment Therapy, who are usually full of good ideas.

A while ago, I wrote a post about how to ventilate a kitchen when you don’t have a range hood or vent. A number of Kitchn readers recommended installing a reversible window fan which, when put on the exhaust setting, can effectively draw smells, steam, and smoke out of your kitchen.

I don’t have a hood in my rental kitchen, and for a long time I just ran the ceiling fans in other rooms when I cooked something particularly smelly or smoky. It worked okay, but wasn’t ideal. So I decided to put a window fan in one of my kitchen windows, and now I’m so glad I did.
