Studio Apartments have their pros and cons. On one hand, most are cheap and affordable. On the other hand, they are definitely lacking in space and privacy. But it is still possible to turn the space you have into something special. Something you can call home. Below are some neat tricks to ensure you are making the most out of the space you have.
First Off, What Is A Studio Apartment?
A studio apartment is basically a minimalist’s dream. Also known as a self-contained apartment, a studio apartment is a small apartment where most of the normal functional rooms in an apartment, such as the bedroom and kitchen, are merged into one. Essentially, think of it as a larger-than-normal hotel room, so making the most of the space is imperative.
Convert Your Storage
One of the easiest ways to give yourself more space in a studio apartment is to convert your storage, or making sure your storage units can be used for multiple purposes. Having storage used as a dresser, nightstand or tv cabinet is just some of the quick and easy ways to maximise your space.
MIRROR Your Space
The thing about studio apartments is that depending on what direction the apartment is facing, not a lot of natural light can get in at times. This is where mirrors can come in handy. Mirrors help bounce the natural light around the apartment, creating depth and making the space seem larger than it actually is.
Keep Clutter To A Minimum
Clutter is one thing that can turn a nice, open space into a game of leapfrog. Having to continuously jump over things that are sprawled across the floor can not only become extremely annoying but can also make your space seem a lot smaller. Ensuring everything has a place and that clutter is kept to a minimum is a sure-fire way to make your open plan living just that; open.
Ensure Your Furniture Is Parked
Having furniture sitting in the middle of your living room is a pretty standard thing in today’s world. Unless you live in a studio apartment. If your furniture is scattered throughout your apartment, then there is a good chance that you may feel a little like a rat in a maze. Strategically placing your furniture on the outskirts of the apartment can help maintain the free-flowing feel a studio apartment offers.
It’s OK To Be Divided
If you don’t live alone, a studio apartment can cause a few headaches; mainly when it comes to getting dressed in the morning. Most people like that type of privacy and a divider can definitely help with that, but make sure it too isn’t planted in the middle of the apartment. The corner of the studio is fine.
Ensure It is Light & Bright
It is well established that white walls can make a space feel bigger. Add to that large windows that allow in as much natural light as you can muster, and suddenly your studio apartment feels like you are living in a three-bedroom apartment penthouse (well, to a degree).
