Just because your studio apartment is small, doesn’t mean it has to feel like bland student housing. Granted, your options are limited when it comes to furnishing a room meant for sleeping, eating, working, and hanging out. But with some space planning and the right style, you can turn your tiny pad into your perfect little nest.
Here are a few tips:
- Have clever storage solutions and multi-purpose furniture.
- Define spaces with paint to create zones – Sleeping, eating, etc.
- Use ingenious room dividers – Notice the reclaimed window in studio #5 below.
- Think like a minimalist.
- Declutter your space!
- Use mirrors to reflect the light and make a space feel larger.
- Make the most of the ceiling height, and add a mezzanine like in studio #4.
