These Tech Essentials Are A Must for Your Small Apartment

As a native New Yorker, I’ve faced almost every possible issue when living in a small apartment. Whether it is dealing with limited space or lingering smells, I’ve come to realize that there’s always a solution to these problems – you just have to look!

I curated a list of my favorite small space gadgets that truly enhance the comfort and convenience of apartment living.

Dohm Nova Sound Machine ($64.99)

Living in an apartment can sometimes make it challenging to sleep well, with neighbors walking above you or late-night traffic noise. However, Yoga Sleep has you covered. Their Dohm Nova Sound Machine, a fan-based natural white noise generator, helps create a smoother auditory environment, minimizing disruptions that can affect sleep quality and interfere with sleep cycles.

The machine noise is customizable with 10 fan speeds, changeable tone and volume, an adjustable amber night light, and an optional sleep timer, making it the perfect tech gadget for achieving better rest.

Vitruvi Move Diffuser ($199) 

I’ve personally experienced the effects of cooking delicious meals but having the unwanted smell lingering hours later, especially in a small apartment. Vitruvi, a natural air care brand, has an amazing solution to this issue. Their cordless Move Diffuser allows you to scent every corner of your home—no plug necessary.

This product comes with a rechargeable battery and convenient charging pad, offering the freedom to move it all around the house. The diffuser uses all-natural oils to safely scent your space, meaning no harsh chemicals or other toxic ingredients.

Levoit Mini Air Purifier ($49)

While a diffuser helps control lingering smells, air purifiers are important in reducing indoor pollutants. Levoit’s Mini Air Purifier is the perfect technology for keeping your apartment air clean from smoke, fumes, and airborne particles like dust, pollen and pet dander.

The device uses 360° VortexAir Technology 3.0 and 3-stage filtration to ensure top-notch air purification and is compact, so it easily fits in any bedroom, office, or living room, creating less clutter and more fresh air.
