Tips on Decorating A Studio Apartment

A studio apartment is essentially a hotel room with a kitchen. You might be confused as to how you can call this your home, with little to no space that can provide all the places a home must have. The key is to know how to decorate it correctly. Websites like homeddict.com even post suggestions on how to decorate small homes and can help you too. Here are our top tips on how to maximize your studio apartment’s interior design.

Divide your room

This is the first step to making your studio apartment an actual home. You can divide the space, and have two to three rooms made in one room! This way, you can have a living room area and a dining area at the very least. You don’t even have to get fancy separators; you can just use what you have or none at all. A tall bookcase makes a great separator. Or you can just put down a loveseat in front of your bed, and then a small coffee table and a television. There are plenty of ways you can separate your room. Think about the convenience, a strategic location for a living room should be near the bed area and the dining area right next to the kitchen.

Keep it neutral

Dark and deep colors tend to draw space closer, making it seem like you have a smaller and crowded room. Try to stick to a lighter shade of color palette for your walls and furniture. If you’re worried about it looking boring, you can add pops of colors here and there to make everything more three-dimensional. A favorite trick is to paint one wall with a bold color or pattern while the other stay neutral. This can be a focus area, and the rest of the apartment will look wider. You can also have one wall full of artwork instead. Another trick is to play with bold colors on covers and beddings like the color of your bedsheets or bedcovers, or pillowcases and sofa covers.

Use multifunctional furniture

Multifunctional furniture will help you a lot regarding storage for your studio apartment, and there are plenty of multi-purpose furniture. You can get wall shelves where you can store books, display photos, and small pots of plants. You can get beds that have drawers underneath. To save space, you can get foldable furniture, such as folded dining table for two that can expand into a table for four. You can get kitchen rails to hang towels and cooking pots.
