Studio apartments are usually fairly small in size, usually consisting of the kitchen, living and bedroom space all in one open and common area, and a small bathroom. Your studio apartment can be made to feel larger with a few creative decorating and storage tips. See below for a few of these helpful tips.
Divide The Space
Since there aren't any walls dividing your space, you'll need to do this yourself.
Use Creative Storage
There isn't a lot of space for storage in a small studio apartment, so you can either store all of your items in a storage unit, or you can be a little more creative with your storage solutions.
Invest In Multi-Functional Or Foldable Furniture
Furniture that can double as something else is a good idea when you have small space. Use a table that can double as a desk. For extra sleeping space, you can also look into a futon bed or a sleeper sofa. A Murphy bed that can be folded up into the wall will also help save you space.
To help add height and make your apartment appear larger you can add floor length curtains that are hung high near the ceiling. This gives the illusion of height. You can also attach your curtains a little further outside of the window to allow more light into the apartment. This will also make your apartment feel larger.
Use Neutral Paint
If you are able to paint your apartment, be sure to keep the colors as light and neutral as possible. The lighter colors will help to make your apartment feel larger in size. You can add small pops of color in your area rug, with wall decor or with throw pillows.
Just because your apartment is small, doesn't mean it can't feel like a larger space. Be creative with your storage and decor, keep your paint neutral and allow plenty of light.Share
