10 Awesome Things You Wish You Had in Your Apartment

You may have already written your shopping list for your new apartment, but take a second look - it might be missing some truly awesome things that could complete your home.

You may have already written your shopping list for your new apartment, but take a second look - it might be missing some truly awesome things that could complete your home. From storage-savers you simply must have in your bedroom to spice racks behind hidden doors, these additions are some of the most usefully random home​ goods you should add to your list:


Hook-On Balcony Desk
If you work from home, you will certainly spend good time and money furnishing your home office. But when it's warm and sunny outside and the chirp-chirp of robins are beckoning, you may be tempted to move your whole workspace setup outside. The hook-on balcony desk means you don't have to lug a clunky desk outdoors - it attaches to the frame of your balcony railing.


Folding Wall-Mounted Barbecue Pod
Many apartments don't offer enough outdoor space for you to set up a barbecue grill, which is why a wall-mounting, fold-out barbecue pod is so helpful. It's comprised of a mounted, steel firebowl that folds up against the wall in order to save space when not in use.

It also looks super cool - imagine the expression on your friends' faces when they arrive for a cook-out and you make a barbecue magically appear from a wall.


Vertical Wine Rack
When you live in an apartment with limited space, you have to make some sacrifices. But like any adult of sound mind, you would sooner throw out your bed than get rid of your wine collection - even if it's comprised solely of $10 bottles from your grocer's international aisle. A vertical wine rack can be mounted on the wall to save counter space and lets you store your bottles properly - on their side.


Slide-Out Spice Rack
In your youth, rarely did you find yourself thinking about storage options for your vast and ever-growing collection of spices. Now, however, you need a spice rack that can hold all those jars of curry you keep forgetting to use while taking up minimal room. One of the most awesome things you can have in your kitchen is a slide-out spice rack - it fits in the 6-inch space between your refrigerator and wall and pulls out to reveal a wonderful world of flavors.


Magnetic Wall
Bulletin boards are nice additions to an office, but they don't belong in the living spaces of your apartment. A magnetic wall can be created by applying two coats of magnetic paint followed by a third coat of regular paint to match the other walls (unless it's an accent). Then, you can use the magnetism to hang pictures and other home decor. You can even make a magnetic wall in your kitchen to hang knives, pots and pans.


Shower Curtain with Pockets
Pockets aren't just for pants and aprons - they're a must-have for anyone with an over-cluttered bathroom. Hang a shower curtain with pockets to store shampoos, hand towels, loofahs and whatever else you need to get all squeaky clean. Keep in mind that water can fill the pockets, but you can avoid this by choosing a curtain with drainage holes at the bottom of each pocket.


Staircase
There's no hard-and-fast rule that you must have a second floor in your apartment to have a staircase. Install one  that leads up to your loft bed, or put a few steps under that kitchen cabinet that you can never quite reach. You can also purchase (or build) a small, transportable staircase that serves as a furnishing - stairs that function as bookshelves are trendy right now.


Secret Storage Headboard
Sure, it's easy to just lay your mattress on the floor, but you're an adult now and you need a proper bed frame and headboard. Might as well make it one that doubles as a secret storage spot in which you can hide whatever awesome things you want to keep from the world. In fact, there's no reason to stop at the headboard - you can deck your apartment out with everything from secret storage ottomans to bathroom tiles that are actually slide-out drawers.


Moving Wall
Small spaces call for creativity, especially in a studio where the one-room setup leaves little to the imagination - entertaining guests can get weird when they start snooping through your bedside drawer. If you think paneled room dividers are straight-up boring, one of the coolest additions you can make, if you can afford it, is a moving wall. Click a button and suddenly one room becomes two. A little spatial reconfiguration can go a long way.


Wall Graphics
Remember when we mentioned the whole thing about being adults? Toss that out and take a journey back to the 1990s when wall tattoos were crazy cool. Wall decals are actually very popular again, especially among the DIY-ers, and they allow you to add a little personal flavor to your apartment. Your landlord won't let you paint your bedroom walls with a mural of the Rainbow Road track in Mario Kart? Recreate the scene with wall graphics that you can take with your after you move.
