The spacious apartments in Peter Cooper Village have tons of potential to be truly unique, one-of-a-kind homes. If you’ve been thinking of how to turn the extra space your new apartment into something fantastic, here are a few ideas to help you get started.
Personal Fitness Center
Bringing your active lifestyle home is easier and more fun than you might think! Even a small amount of extra space can work wonders for building your own home gym. You can use divider shelves for your yoga mat, resistance bands or weighted accessories, and it’s easy to mount a pull-up bar on almost any door frame. If you’re handy with a drill, you can even build your own climbing wall.
It doesn’t take much to craft an inspiring art studio inside your apartment — it’s as easy as finding a pleasant area for your canvas or desk and building around it with shelving, accessory storage and a bit of lighting. Having an area designated for cleanup tools is a smart way to make things efficient, and choosing an area with blank walls means you have plenty of room to display your work.
Working from home gives you the freedom to make your workspace into anything you want. Be sure to choose an area with plenty of room for your bookshelves or filing cabinets and try to place your desk near a window to reap the stimulating benefits of natural light. If you work directly with clients, have some comfortable seating and side tables available as well.
Home isn’t just a place where you live, it’s where you come to life. The extra space in your apartment can be used to build a place where your creative freedom and hardy work ethic flourish, so don’t be afraid to take advantage of it.
