Apartment Gadgets You Didn’t Know You Actually Need

There are many things that you can’t install in your house, simply because it doesn’t have the same amount of space of freedom unlike a regular house does. That doesn’t mean you can’t have the small luxuries and security while living in one. Home is supposed to be a place of comfort, safety and security. We should make an effort to make it feel like a home we could go home to every day without grimacing.

There are plenty of electronics and other stuff solely for apartments that will make your life comfortable. You just have to know what they are first so you don’t confuse them for bigger house electronics. And so you don’t mistakenly buy something meant for a house instead of an apartment, here are the gadgets you could use in your apartment even if the place is small.


Sometimes choosing to live in an apartment means there’s not much time to clean anymore, especially if you’re a struggling student or just graduated university. Having a Roomba in the apartment means more time for you to do something else while the Roomba cleans the floor for you.

TV/Monitor Lights

Oftentimes, apartments can provide you with a sort of homely comfort if you just allow it too. Personally, I feel cosy and at home if I curl up on the sofa with fairy lights on my walls or windows. But having TV lights is an alternative too. These are lights you attach to the back of your television or your computer monitor and they come in different colours too.

Fridge Stackers

Don’t be like the other apartment owners who have fridges that just store up about everything and make a mess of the place supposedly storing food. Be organised about it. A fridge is where you put the things you eat.

Cordless Shades

Replace the usual blinds that are already there in the apartments with these easy to pull down shades. The block the light out and don’t blind you while you watch TV and best of all, they aren’t ugly to look at, unlike blinds that sometimes bend and break.

Toilet Light

Bathroom breaks don’t always happen in the middle of the day. They sometimes happen at dawn, waking you up and then you would have to stumble all over the place until you find the light switch and then blind yourself with the sudden beam of light. Have toilet lights that glow different colours at night.

Smart Lights

Have lighting that is smart enough to turn off all by itself if there is no need for them. you can make it keep a routine where it would turn on all by itself as soon as the sun sets, and then turn off when you’re going to sleep.

Of course there are also other types of gadgets that you can utilise too, even if they ARE made for a big house. You just have to be creative in how you put that in smaller space.
