How to Furnish a Studio Apartment

I recently moved into to the 500-square-foot studio apartment I lived in when I very first moved to Washington, DC. I was in my early 20's in the past and single. NOW I AM pushing 30, no longer one and I have a far greater sense of how exactly to decorate and furnish a studio in a manner that actually works.

I'm finding the experience of furnishing and decorating my tiny space liberating and exciting. After all, I went from a huge two bedroom to essentially one long room. Obviously, not only have I found storage space in short supply, walls as well! So I am faced with the dilemma of furnishing this little studio apartment and speaking from the previous failed attempt, I came across a solution that works.

Keep reading for tips on decorating and furnishing your studio apartment... and hopefully some inspiration from my furnishing and decorating experience.

Exactly what is a studio apartment?

A studio, also sometimes known as efficiency can be an apartment that's between 300 to 600 square feet with essentially one space. The one room functions as a living room, dining room, bedroom, and kitchen. Even the kitchen usually doesn't have a genuine wall. My kitchen for instance, has a sliding partition. One plus that I've seen in studios here in DC and in my own hometown of New York are foyers, aka dressing areas leading into the bathroom. I love those little rooms because they're like awesome stroll in closets.

Effiiency Apartment Furniture Placement

The open floor plan of a studio apartment can make furniture placement quiet tricky. Who would like their sleeping space in basic site and virtually touching the living room space. Or worse yet, be a mixture of both and dead room. I understand I don't so I'll share some methods with you about how you too can have just a little privacy in your intimate little space by choosing the right furnishings and partitioning spaces based on their functionality.

To start off

  • Check out your studio apartment's floor-plan (or even sketch one unless you have one on hand) and start playing around with different layout choices which will work for you. Can be your room big good enough to split it into sections and make it more functional? Consider things such as whether you intend on having friends over regularly (in which case you'd need a guest-helpful layout) or you plan on doing the entertaining beyond your home and will be using it simply for some 'me period' and sleeping. 
  • Remember that you have limited room so every piece of furniture will have a major impact.
  • Get your creative juices flowing and start thinking of how you can utilize the furniture pieces you need to buy to function double-duty and putting your furniture in unconventional ways. Who knows, if your room is wide, maybe it'll make sense to place the sofa in the middle of the area, a TV stand in leading and perhaps a cute three item dining area set in the back again. The back of the couch can be the separator you have to designate your dining area. So there you already have two different rooms. After that toward the end of the room, you could have your bed.

Ways to Separate a Room

Although some may disagree, I believe separating a studio apartment, which is just one room is crucial - particularly the bed from all of those other room. Having gone the 'open up space' route, I quickly recognized that separating a studio space adds functionality instead of having your bed and liveable space back-to-back.

There are numerous of methods for you to separate a room - below are the major options you have.

  • Bookcase room divider. This one is my favored route, particularly with bookcases which have both sides finished. Not only does a bookcase separate an area, it also does double-duty as storage space and book display situation. It could even double as a evening the stand by position placing your lamp using one of the shelves. I really like how it keeps the room airy, while partitioning off the bed-area from the family room and looking so chic!
  • Folding screens. These can be found in all different sizes (short/tall, wide/narrow) and styles. They really work as more of a symbolic divider, required since we all need some privacy. Screens can also be an easy way to completely conceal your mattress by using two of them. You also have the option of getting a shoji, a Japanese-style room divider.
  • Curtains. This is an easy way to go - who needs walls when you can have a curtain? Well maybe if you would like some privacy and peace and quiet but otherwise, curtains are inexpensive, easy to install, and simple to remove. It's a excellent temporary solution!
