Here I am, ready to divulge my findings on Small Space Heaters.
Last week, the temperature dropped to a new low of the season. Then again, our PTAC unit from the living room started its cacophony. Pulsating, throbbing, and raucous hoo-ha. Soon, to our dismay, it was gone. Thereupon, we foraged through space heaters for a makeshift. It threw us into a tizzy since most options were offensive-looking.
Important to realize, in a small apartment, there is space only for appealing things. For this reason, adding a last-minute unsightly object seems grim. In fact, there is also a probability that if bought impulsively, it will be destined for a landfill.
Hence, my quest began for a well-designed, simple, sleek, and easy-looking piece. With this intention, I was looking for a functional, affordable, and portable heater. At the minimum, a base level performer that can provide supplemental or singular heat in the future. Moreover, something that will either dissimulate in any space or will be deliberately striking.
Finally, here are a few of my picks. By all means, I applied my Design mind to this exploration. To a certain degree, these blend aesthetics with utility. However, I am waiting for this Sun Heater!
