How to Furnish a Studio Apartment

Not long ago I moved into to the 500-square-foot studio apartment I lived in when I first moved to Washington, DC. I was in my own early 20's back then and single. NOW I AM pushing 30, no longer individual and I have a far greater sense of how to decorate and furnish a studio in a way that actually works.

I'm finding the connection with furnishing and decorating my small space liberating and exciting. I mean, I went from a sizable two bedroom to basically one long room. Obviously, not only have I came across storage space an issue, walls as well! So I've been faced with the dilemma of furnishing this small studio apartment and speaking from the previous failed attempt, I found a solution that works.

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

Exactly what is a studio apartment?

A studio, also sometimes known as efficiency is an apartment that's between 300 to 600 square foot with essentially one room. The one room functions as a living room, dining room, bedroom, and kitchen. Even the kitchen usually doesn't have an actual wall. My kitchen for instance, has a sliding partition. One plus that I've observed in studios here in DC and in my 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 wants their sleeping space in ordinary site and practically touching the family room space. Or worse yet, be a mixture of both and dead room. I understand I don't so I'll talk about some methods with you about how you too can have a little personal privacy in your intimate little space by choosing the right furnishings and partitioning spaces based on their functionality.

To start off

  • Take a look at your studio apartment's floor-plan (or even sketch one unless you have one on hand) and start playing around with different layout options that may work for you. Can be your room big more than 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 particular case you'd would like a guest-helpful layout) or you intend on doing the entertaining outside of your home and you will be using it simply for some 'me period' and sleeping. 
  • Remember that you have limited room so every furniture piece will have a significant impact.
  • Get your creative juices flowing and start thinking about how you can use the furniture pieces you want to buy to assist double-duty and putting your furniture in unconventional methods. Who knows, if your space is wide, maybe it'll seem sensible to place the sofa in the middle of the area, a TV stand in leading and perhaps a cute three piece dining area set in the back again. The back of the couch can be the separator you need 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 think separating a studio apartment, which is simply one room is a must - particularly the bed from the rest of the room. Having gone the 'open up space' route, I quickly recognized that separating a studio area adds functionality as opposed to having your bed and liveable space back-to-back.

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

  • Bookcase room divider. That 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 space for storage and book display situation. It could even double as a evening stand by placing your lamp on one of the shelves. I love how it keeps the room airy, while partitioning off the bed-area from the living room and looking so chic!
  • Folding screens. These can be found in all different sizes (short/tall, wide/narrow) and styles. They actually work as even more of a symbolic divider, necessary since most of us need some privacy. Screens can also be an easy way to completely conceal your bed by using two of them. You also have the option of getting a shoji, a Japanese-style area divider.
  • Curtains. This is a simple way to go - who needs walls when you're able to have a curtain? Well probably if you want some privacy and quiet time but otherwise, curtains are cheap, easy to install, and simple to remove. It's a great temporary solution!
