Tips To Organizing A Studio Apartment
Love your studio apartment? But wish it was just that much bigger? Getting organised will instantly create more space on your studio apartment. It will also increase enjoyment of your home, giving you the freedom to relax and even feel more energized. Here are some tips to organizing a studio apartment for you. Separate your sleeping area in a studio with freestanding screens or bookcases. Paint the back of the bookcase with chalkboard paint and use it for messages and brainstorming, or cover it with fabric and use it as the headboard for your bed. Buy a bed that’s designed for small spaces: a loft bed, Murphy bed, sleeper sofa, daybed or futon. These let you reclaim the sleeping area when you’re awake. Also look at beds that have storage drawers under the mattress instead of a box spring. Get a drop-leaf table.
Fold out one leaf and use it as a desk, fold out both leaves for dinner parties, or fold up the whole thing and push it against a wall when not in use. Look for home office furniture that can fold up and roll out of the way when not in use. If you already have a favorite worktable or desk, put it on easy-rolling casters. Use mirrors to make a small room seem larger. And another tips to organizing your studio apartment is think vertical. Get 7-foot-tall (2.1 m tall) bookcases instead of the standard 6-foot-tall (1.8 m tall) units, and put baskets of small items and papers on the top.
