How to Furnish a Studio Apartment

I recently moved into to the 500-square-foot studio apartment We lived in when I first moved to Washington, DC. I was in my early 20's back then and single. NOW I AM pushing 30, no longer solitary and I have a much better sense of how to decorate and furnish a studio in a way that actually works.

I'm finding the experience of furnishing and decorating my tiny space liberating and exciting. I mean, I went from a large two bedroom to essentially one long room. Needless to say, not only have I came across storage space an issue, walls as well! So I've been faced with the issue of furnishing this small studio residence and speaking from a previous failed attempt, I came across a solution that works.

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

Exactly what is a studio apartment?

A studio, also sometimes referred to as efficiency is an apartment that's between 300 to 600 square ft with essentially one area. The one room functions as a living room, dining area, 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 observed in studios within DC and in my own hometown of NY are foyers, aka dressing locations leading into the bathroom. I love those little rooms because they're like awesome walk 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 living room space. Or worse however, 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 just a little 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 sketch one unless you have one readily available) and start experimenting with different layout options that will work for you. Can be your room big good enough to split it into sections and ensure it is more functional? Consider things such as whether you plan on having friends over frequently (in which particular case you'd wish a guest-friendly layout) or you plan on doing the entertaining outside of your home and will be using it just for some 'me time' and sleeping. 
  • Remember that you have limited area so every piece of furniture will have a significant impact.
  • Get your innovative juices flowing and begin thinking about how you can use the furniture pieces you need to buy to provide double-duty and putting your furniture in unconventional methods. Who knows, if your room is wide, maybe it'll seem sensible to place the couch in the middle of the area, a TV stand in leading and perhaps a cute three item dining room 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 can have your bed.

Ways to Separate a Room

Although quite a few may disagree, I believe separating a studio apartment, which is just one room is a must - particularly the bed from all of those other room. Having gone the 'open space' route, I quickly realized 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 preferred route, particularly with bookcases which have both sides finished. Not merely does a bookcase separate an area, in addition, it does double-duty as space for storage and book display situation. It can even double as a evening the stand by position placing your lamp on 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 come in all different sizes (short/tall, broad/narrow) and styles. They actually work as even more of a symbolic divider, necessary since we all need some privacy. Screens can also be an easy way to completely conceal your bed by using two of them. You additionally have the option to getting a shoji, a Japanese-style area divider.
  • Curtains. This is an easy way to go - who needs walls when you can have a curtain? Well probably if you would like some privacy and quiet time but otherwise, curtains are cheap, easy to install, and easy to remove. It's a excellent temporary solution!
